Like the title says, would it be easier to run 1080p at 144 frames or 1440p at 60 frames?

Depending on the game 1080p @ 144 can be pretty tough but overall 1440p is harder to run. Its almost double the pixels you have to render.
Small wonder.

I think 144 hz, reason is that with new games the CPU becomes the limitation before you get to 144hz solid

Example :

FO4 with a single GTX980 TI

http://www.techspot.com/review/1089-fallout-4-benchmarks/page5.html



Whereas 1440: 980ti can do nearly 90FPS average.



It also depends if youre talking about a solid 144 all the time or using Gsync freesync, or just not using Vsync I suppose. And as Kuufa said its going to depend on the game.

Honestly I think it is much harder to maintain 144fps @ 1080p than to run 1440p at 60 fps.

The problem with 144fps is that it all comes down to your cpu. You can't just lower the graphics to increase fps if you are cpu bound. However if you are GPU bound then you can just lower the graphics and you have more fps.

I have this problem in BF4 Multiplayer with my 4.5ghz 2500k. It is impossible to keep my minimums above 100fps on all maps. Some maps sure, but not every one. Dips into 110-120fps range is not bad imo, but once the framerate drops to ~100 I can instantly notice it.

Okay then to offer you some more details
I have a 5820k and a r9 390
I kinda think that 1440p would be a better idea now though since I wont be using freesync/gsync until I upgrade my gpu in a couple years for a high end one and I dont think I will be able to run the 144frames

1080p 144hz is really tough to get. Hell, my 290 with oc could run 1440p/60 fps with medium-high details, while 144 fps was just impossible at 1080p no matter how low I'd go with the settings. If you decide to run 144hz get a beefy CPU and an nvidia card, amd gets hit with overhead so hard that even fury x can't get stable 144hz 1080p, 980 would do much better.

Already got a 390 so I guess I will need to go the 1440p route.

Pretty much every AAA game benchmark I've seen in the last year I dont think any CPU has got much over a 100 FPS average with minimums lower then that, I know that doesnt take into account overclocking, and Ive only run 1440 60 myself but I cant imagine its very easy to keep 144 at all in any recent game.

If you spent that money for 6600K and GTX 980 that'd be a lot better, you could try 1440p and g-sync with higher refresh rate, I'd smoke 5820k/390 out of the water.
