Will 1440p@120Hz exist yet?
How much GPU power will it take to push 1400p@60Hz?
4K monitors won't be affordable for another 5 years, at least. They don't even exist yet tongue.gif
1440p 120Hz kind of exists, there are overclockable monitors that you can get from Overlord, Yamakasi and a couple of other manufacturers that can run at 120Hz but it's not 'true' 120Hz. I have no idea when actual 120Hz 1440p panels will be available.
GPU power wise, a single GTX 670/HD 7950 is generally the recommended GPU for playing games at 1440p on high-ultra settings.

4K monitors? Forget about it until 2015 or even further.

 

I mean they will be here but way too expensive.

 

1440p 120hz exists in OCable monitors but they are rare and hard to find. About companies like Asus, Dell, Samsung to come up with 1440p and 120hz well maybe in late 2014 or so.

 

These are all my guess.

 

1440p and 60hz?


Well it depends on game about GPU power. Which games do you have in mind?

1.In the next 12-18 months 4K monitors wont be widespread, or at least I can't see them coming down to a price everyone can afford. Even right now 1440p is only for the more hardcore gamers.

2.1440p@120hz exists in the overlord monitors and the old catleap 2B's but that is it but they sell the 120hz pcb for the catleaps.

3.Depends what your playing and at what settings, I've happily played 1440p at 60hz(did you mean fps?) on a 7770 on arma 2, not a very graphic intense game. I'm currently running 2x7950's at 1440p and they can drop below 60fps in some games with everything maxed, dayz comes to mind because it's CPU intensive.

considering how long it took people to adopt 1080p tv and monitors (there are still alot out there that don't have hd believe it or not)

it's gonna be a long wait on 4k to become affordable and not pointless. UNFORTUNATELY.

buy 1440 now

nevermind that the GPUs, even the Titan, can't do 60 FPS at 1440p. we're better off sticking to 1440p and let GPUs and the drivers mature.

Sounds like 4K monitors aren't worth 'waiting' for just yet.

Sounds like I might be sticking with a 1440p@60Hz monitor, and overclocking it, or just playing with VSync on.

I play FPS's. So right now it is BF3, in the future? If anything else comes out more realistic, (BF4), or something, then by all means.

I edited my post b/c I realized I could just go on anandtech and find out what GPU would work. But we are talking 18 months away, by then the GTX (I buy Nvidia usually) series will be on the cusp of the 2014 models, and we are just now seeing '700' models coming out now (titan)...get my drift. So by then, I will need something with at least current GTX680 power. So by then I am thinking, the $400 model will be what I will buy. And try to get it for a deal for $350.

Anyone think monitor technology will change AT ALL? Sounds like I will just be buying a Catleap Q270 LED then.......?

Thanks for being so informative. I use to know what was what, but 9 months of not following the market, and you are left behind kinda. smile.gif

there won't be any drastic changes in pc monitors until 4k. so buying now is least of your worries.
post #2858 of 6172
I will likely buy the monitor soonest, then the card when the 2014 models come out perhaps.

Any thoughts on a decent 1440p 60Hz model? I am looking for cheap and good bang for buck, like my GTX480 for $200 biggrin.gif

I really hate that I have to use eBay, I don't trust that system at all.

nothing wrong with ebay and paypal, in regards to these monitors specifically. Accessorieswhole is the best. You'll read this in their respective threads. check monitor section of forum.

and I recommend crossover 27 led-p. I have 3 and love em.
post #2860 of 6172
Thanks so much man, I will definitely look that seller up.

Looks like $400ish shipped. Not too bad. I think my GTX480 will be able to run that monitor for something around 60fps on BF3 if EVERYTHING is on low.
