I have a 2GB ASUS 680, and I do notice that it's working pretty hard to push 1440p. Comfortably playable in everything right now, but I doubt it'll hold up down the road.

Only games right that now that seems to push VRAM is Crysis 3 or so i heard dont have the game so cant say first hand and there is Skyrim with mods

None of the games i have tested is faster or better with 4 GB V 2 GB

Also the reason there is more games on the 2 GB graph is because they worked at the time of testing

World In Conflict
Resident Evil 5
Devil May Cry 4

These 3 refuse to with the 4 GB card no matter what i do they just crash
And Conpany Of Heroes can not go above 59 FPS anymore which is really strange???

HAWX 2 is another game but that one has not worked for a very long time
GTA IV has gone FUBAR after i moved to the 4 GB cards so gave up on that as well

And yes everything is in 1440P with max everything AA ultra everything you name its maxed

Ok, that makes more sense then. With AA lower or off, fps would be quite a bit better. I have heard you really don't need AA (or very much of it) on 1440p anyways. Still having a hard time deciding between a the 144hz Asus and a 1440p though. I know the 1440p will look better, but just wondering if it is worth the extra cost. Plus I could eventually try out 3D on the Asus. Always wanted to try out 3D.smile.gif Even though I doubt I will even be able to maintain 120fps in most games.

You definitely don't need to crank up AA on 1440p. I barely notice it on/off when playing bf3/POE/borderlands 2 (the games I'm working through at the moment). Or dwarf fortress for that matter. Haha.

I added AA to push the card/cards as hard as i could

And if my case airflow worked right i could have done overclocked GTX 680 4 GB SLI as well but i cant as my whole case airflow is FUBAR right now

Id say go 1440p.. I have a 1080p monitor and upgrading to another 1080p monitor just to do 144GHZ would be meh so thats why i opted to get a 1440p due to more space on the screen,higher resolution and going from a TFT to a PLS panel sounds crazy and the fact its 27" woot

But i was just looking into Pixel density as i believe is the most common reason why people get these 1440p panels?

If you take a 2560x1440 Panel at 27 inch (which is the only size right now) You get a pixel density of 108.79 PPI.
If you take a 1920x1080 Panel at 23 inch You get a pixel density of 95.78 PPI
There is a 13 PPI difference there. Is that really noticable? And if it is, then a 21.5 inch screen at 102.46 PPI should live up to 1440p screens in terms of pixel density.

The screens i'm comparing with can be both TN and IPS, so in terms of overall quality, where lies the factor that might chance this?
Besides, i see some benefits to 1080p over 1440p.

pro 1080p
-obviously you have more pixels so you will need more power to maintain or reach a certain fps (mostly 60) on a 1440p
-They cost way Less! for instance a Dell or Vieuwsonic 1440p panel goes for 700 bucks? (i'm european) The cheapest Dell Ultrasharp 1440p panel i can get is €490,-
While most IPS panels at 23inch are SUB €200,- !!
-The 1080p IPS monitors i have seen are mostly below 10ms and some even go as far as 5ms.

Con 1080p
-Still a little less PPI (don't know if u can notice 6 to 13 PPI less)
-Less space on desktop
-Really not sure if any 1080p IPS panel can match colours, brightness, contrast and ghosting issues with a brand new 1440p panel.

So i'm curious.. what else makes the difference?

*edit*

The only difference i found between the Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM and any 1080p ISP panel is that no 1080p can match the dell's 350cd/m² brightness. But go up to 250cd/m² instead. How would this be noticable?


As someone who just upgraded from a pretty nice LG 27" 1080p monitor to a QNIX 27" 1440p monitor, I can say that the difference is, IMO, enormous essentially. As in creating a whole new experience feel, rather than just a quantitative upgrade. This could be due in large part to panel quality, but I also think 1440p is the right resolution for a 27" monitor. 1080p is not enough to really give that PC experience feel vs. a regular HD TV.

HD movies are (for the most part) enormously better

Gaming is also considerably improved from what I've tried so far, visually speaking (of course slightly lower frames but then you can turn off AA with no problem).

Browsing and text and just general activities are also hugely improved experience-wise. It is just amazing to have a monitor of this quality and it really adds to the experience of having a nice system.
