1080p on 27" and fps cap on 120hz

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering, for all of you who have experience with this, I think I'm going for a 120hz samsung monitor. Since my last choice was a 1440p 27" Dell IPS I stuck to the same size but now I'm wondering if a 1080p resolution would look good on a 27" screen. I like bigger screens and I've heard good things about the Samsung monitors but i'd like some feedback from people who've owned it or similar. Would 27" 1080p look good for gaming or should I go down a few inches?

Second question. If a game is capped at <60fps (or at 60fps) on a 120hz monitor, does this produce tearing or stutter? and what can one do to fix this?

Depends how close you sit to the monitor, obviously 1080p will look better on say a 23 inch monitor than a 27 inch, at the same viewing distance. And any game thats hardlocked at 60fps(i.e. rage) will still vysnc at 60fps on your 120hz screen, there won't be tearing

I currently own the HP 2711x monitor , its 1080p and 27 inch and hd content looks pretty good. Using a 24 inch will look better, but its harldly noticealbe at all, anything under 27 inch monitor is to small for me.

I can adjust to a different viewing distance if it means I get a better view. I'm currently with a 15" laptop screen so the viewing distance is approx. 0.02mm.

Then what causes tearing and microstutter. I know a few games which are hardlocked at 50fps, what about them?

I was caught between small and prettier or big and grainy. If it's not too grainy i'll go for the big one because I prefer a bigger screen. Question: Does a bigger resolution mean you'll see more of the game?

I don't blame you. It's a stupid fps to lock it at.
