1440p @ 120hz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have 760's 4GB in sli so i know Vram will not be an issue, however will my cards be powerful enough to run most games at 120fps at 1440p or is it better to stick to a 120hz 1080p light boost monitor? I did intend on gaming at 1440p in the future which is why I purchased the 4gb version of the 760's so could do with some help on what monitor will be best for my setup, all I will be doing in general is gaming fps/mmo games so no office work or anything of that nature.

I don't think you will be able to run most games at 120fps, more like 80+ I find 1080p to be a sweetspot on resolution. good enough resolution and not very demanding.

Definitely go with 120Hz 1440p ...

120Hz 1440p with medium-high graphics settings >>>>>> 120Hz 1080p with maxed graphics settings

i disagree with above... I love me some Ultra settings. For me id rather have 120hz ultra 1080p than 120hz med 1440p.

absolutely you'll have the horsepower to use those FPS. and theres quite a difference! 1440p has double the pixels of 1080p. so thats certainly noticeable!

Sure it will dip below 120fps at times... but man it's nice! about a month ago a jumped on a pair of 7950s crossfire and a Qnix QX2710 Mine wouldnt do 120hz without lines, but it's been running at 110hz with no issues.

BF3 with maxed settings vsyncd at 110fps, it does drop, below that at times, but even into 80/90 fps looks great.

*only using 2x MSAA, theres no reason to go above that at such insane resolution smile.gif
