what monitor/res to pair with 1080 for gaming

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
hello, i am a little confused as to what resolution to pair with a 1080. pretty much will be gaming mostly and playing AAA titles. is 4k now achievable? or is it best to pair a 1440 /144 hz. ? Ive decided to look into a monitor now and wait for stocks to replenish on the non fe cards. I am coming from a gtx 970 and 1080p asus monitor with 4690k processor.

Single 1080 will match nicely with a 1440p monitor. Should be able to push over 100fps in a lot of games at the resolution.

Wait for the 1080ti or Titan version to match a 4k monitor if you want that.

I'd say to expect 4k at 60+fps mostly maxed out or 1440 at 100+fps mostly maxed out from most titles. Go 1440 if you want more fps (more action packed games) or 4k for a better look (more cinematic games).

EDIT: *4k at 30fps

its a hard decision for me cause id probably like to go with 4k now and then possibly get the ti model latter and sell the 1080. If i go with 1440 would there even be a point in the ti model latter on at that res?

Which 4k monitors are considered good price /perf right now. is 500 too low a budget?

You should be looking for a 27inch IPS GSYNC 120+ HZ monitor with a 1080. 4k you still wont get over 60 fps.

Do you want to have every single thing maxed out? 4k 60+ has been easily achievable for some time now by lowering some more or less useless settings like 8x AA and such.
