You get much more desktop real estate, bigger field of view and eye candy for sure. you just need to have a better video card to drive 1440p due to 78% more pixel than 1080p.
There are lots of new types of Korean 1440p @ 120hz monitors available now and maybe this link can help you out (don't mind the wow topic but the 1440p @ 120hz discussion is very informative)
The 120hz is amazing in terms of being smooth, completely agree with you there. I had a retina display for about 2 months and I experienced no issues with smoothness on LoL, but never got to any FPS games since I didn't want to bootcamp, but something about the display made the other regular laptops look "dull".
As for the Korean monitors, I will never be able to justify myself to those type of monitors. I understand that they are great for the price, but I am very particular with quality products. Rather would spend $850 on a monitor that I can really appreciate, versus going $500 deep and wishing I would have forked the extra $350.
To sum up what I'm saying here. I will be going from 120hz 1080p to 1440p at 60hz, will never be able to do the B E A utiful 120hz 1440p. I will have 780 SC in SLI so the GPU horsepower should be there for ultra at 1440p. If you were in my situation, considering you have been with both types of monitors, what would you do? I want the monitor that will make me happy with the $3,000 computer I will be building.
