The 2560xXXXX monitors are all going to be similar in image quality. The 2560x1440 monitors are either IPS or PLS, and the 2560x1080 are all the same LG IPS panel. The 2560x1080 will take the least amount of GPU grunt to drive, whereas the 2560x1600 will be the most expensive and hardest to power. However, the 2560x1080 resolution is not supported by all games, and most media content is 16:9 nowadays so you will have annoying black bars on the side if you were to watch media. I personally have been debating this question, but it is a better deal to get the 2560x1440 as you have more screen real-estate and it is nearly the same price (or cheaper actually).

It is in Dutch but if you skip to the graphs you'll see that 49/51 in favor of a 60Hz screen but that is margin of error.
about all could identify the difference and 95% finds it a more comfortable experience.
(I haven't re-watched the video this is what I recall)
