VG248QE (1080p144hz TN) or PB278Q (1440p60hz IPS)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Please help me decide my monitor. I've used my Hanspree HF237 (1080p60hz TFT) monitor for years and since I'm getting a GTX 1070 soon I want a new monitor to go along with it.

I've done the research to see which is better and by the looks of it is very mixed. There are people that say that once they go 1440p they can never go back to 1080p and the same with 144hz and 60hz. Personally, as someone that's NEVER experienced either of these, I think I'll enjoy the 144hz monitor because I like the idea of fluid looking frames but again I've never experienced it so I could be wrong. I don't even play competitive FPS games (I've read that these are the kinds of games that take advantage of the 144hz the most) but I do still like the idea of fluid frames for my SP games. Is that dumb to want over a 1440p as someone that mostly plays SP games? Am I underestimating how good 1440p will look on my games?

Also, I am afraid of screen tearing. The GTX 1070 is a good card but I doubt it will be able to get 144fps at max settings for modern games. Will I be constantly getting a bad screen tearing if I get the 144hz monitor?

I personally favor 1440p over 144hz but it is a very subjective matter.

120hz/144hz is really nice, but like you stated in your OP "once they go 1440p they can never go back" which is very much the case for me.

Why not go for one of the Korean 1440p 144hz monitors?

The Yamakasi I currently have is a 60hz screen that I have overclocked to 95hz so I almost get the best of both worlds, but this is a 3+ year old monitor.

These days you can get 144hz 1440p of the shelf from a few of the Korean manufacturers for more or less the same price either of the monitors you listed.

I can't find those Korean monitors here (Philippines). Thank you for your input.

Would you say the image quality is worth it over 144hz fluid frames when gaming?

Hmm well in that case it makes the choice you have to make rather hard not having the ability to witness the difference first hand.

Many will argue for both sides.

I personally argue for 1440p side.

The colour and the resolution make much more of a difference than the higher refresh rate in my opinion.

Though like I said many will disagree.

Yeah that's the problem and why I'm so mixed.

Would you say I can't go wrong with either decision and I should just flip a coin?
