1440p or 120hz 1080p for Gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Sorry, I have not had a chance to reply. Even now I am on my phone. As far as what I play, I play just about everything (except MMOs), but always find myself spending the most time on FPS like BF3. I am mostly wondering which would show the biggest difference from 1080p 60hz. I plan on getting another 680, and after that a new monitor. It seems to all be preference, but what would show the biggest wow factor from 1080p 60hz?

For FPS, definitely go for 120Hz, and choose one of the LightBoost monitors. When combining LightBoost and 120Hz, you can get up to 12x clearer motion than with a 60Hz display if your GPU can run 120fps@120Hz. That's a full order of magnitude reduction in motion blur! (Instead of only half motion blur)

Mind you, if you use the display for other things (programming, photoshop, etc), that can play a factor.

Which of the two requires more to run? Keeping most games at a constant 90-120 FPS seems hard to do even with 2 680s, and if you cannot maintain at least 80fps it does not seem worth it.

The 1080p at 120hz will require more juice.

I would prefer a 60hz 1440p

One downside I have with the TN 120Hz Lightboost monitors is the color quality. As fluid as my Asus VG278HE is, it's nothing like the beautiful image on a 1440p monitor. As others have pointed out though its all personal preference. I would say I'm sensitive to motion blur so 60hz is no mans land for me, and the downside with 1440p is its 60hz. That's why I chose the in between, overlord tempest x2700C. It's not guaranteed 120hz, but from what I've read many people can hit 96hz fairly easily. Check out 120hz.net also, they have the catleaps I think.

This ^

If you mostly play fps games, there really is no doubt, go for a 120/144hz TN panel if speed is what you want.

Better picture quality is what I want, but how much better is 1440p than 1080p? I remember always watching movies on HBO, MAX, ect at home in HD (1080i). When I first saw a bluray I was blown away. Would 1080 to 1440 be a similar change?

Some are blowen away. Some are mehish.

 

It really depends on expectations.

 

But like in everything, the bigger the expectation is, the bigger the dissapointment.

 

1440p panels have 2 advantages.

 

1-) Better resolution and more pixel, therefor more Pixel Per Inch

 

2-) Better color due to being IPS.

I guess I will just have to see for myself. In your opinion could the average person be able to see a difference between the two, even if its "slight"?

BTW I have a hard time finding 1440p monitors, could you link some quality ones?
