i agree... the jump from 1080 to 1440 will surprise a lot of ppl in terms of the FPS difference. I was surely surprised. you can simply go from 'playable' game to an 'unplayable' game at the same in game settings just the difference in resolution.

for example... sleeping dogs .. my friend easily maxed out every setting with a GTX 580 on a 1080p monitor...but i wasn't able to max out the AAs to extreme setting on my 1440p monitor using my GTX 590. This is also given that there aren't any official SLI profiles made yet from Nvidia, i had to use 3rd party made profiles to unlock SLI, but not at the optimal SLI usage. I am sure once Nvidia comes out with official drivers i be able to max it out too. but u get the idea resolution difference can make a huge difference.

Grab your video cards first then save up for the monitor. no point of getting the monitor then have to play through ur games at lower settings and cant enjoy the game in its full glory, then when you can afford to get the video cards you be done with that particular game.

it's not important at all. you have to looks REAL hard and get real close to see any jaggies at 1440p... depending on game of course but usually it's not needed

I only ever use 2xAA @ 2560x1600. Anything more is needless.
post #587 of 6172
I've tried 1xAA,2xAA and 4xAA @1440p and i really can't see much difference when compared to 16x, plus i'm sitting close to the screen biggrin.gif

Here's an updated Unigine benchmark for the OP:


And a Mafia 2 benchmark on maximum settings:

Unfortunately a picture of the monitor with the name required to be part of the club. Its not like we are extremely elit people :) But it is also good to show off our monitors to people.

 

Example

I agree. Difference between No AA and 2xAA is minimal perhaps but the difference between 2xAA and 4xAA is non existent. At least for me.

I updated the benchmark section with these benchs. Thank you for helping the community.

 

Mafia 2 is amazing in 1440p isnt it?

Galaxy 670 seems like a good GPU too. You can give it a shot as well. I like reference design GPUs so i decided to go with Zotac 670 4gb. Good GPU. I can get up to 1210 mhz OCed.

 

7970 is a very popular choice among the club as well.

I'm really enjoying 1440p, but lately I get bored pretty easily with games like Skyrim. I've put a lot of time into them and just can't seem to get back into them. Can anyone recommend some current games they are enjoying that look great graphically for 1440p?

Thanks smile.gif
