I know GPU is necessary to play witcher 3 or battlefront, but what about the monitor? Is this worth upgrading?
If I'll be sitting in the same distance to the monitor, won't bigger screen and smaller letters make the same impression as my current monitor?
Bigger screen and better resolution is what your getting, not just "small letters" (assuming your current TN monitor isnt 1440p and is probably 1080p)
Resolution aside, some people will even recommend going from TN to IPS, but I personally think this is more of a preference and something you should try to see in person. IPS does have much better color and viewing angles, much better looking but at the cost of a slower refresh rate, IPS glow if you really care, or cost. I personally own a TN and an IPS monitor. I love them both as my TN is a 144Hz / 1ms which is amazing for FPS games, and a 27inch 144Hz/5ms IPS monitor that looks absolutely amazing. Im starting to notice the IPS glow more now that they are side by side but it doesnt bother me. I prefer TN strictly for competitive FPS playing where every advantage counts and having a 1ms (atleast to me) is worth it, and i like the IPS monitor literally for everything else.
