In all case you can disable AA because if you are seeing some aliaising, you are probably too close of your screen. But AA can still make a interesting difference in 50" and 55" screen, but only if youre sitting enough close of your screen, im still sitting close to my screen and i dont find it necessary at all. I can live with a little aliasing without any problem . For 27" you dont see anliasing at all, dont use it, if you want to play at one inch of your screen you can enable it lol. Even at 40" you dont really need it, you will need to be very close to see aliasing. In all case i disable AA. About display quality, my favorite size was 40", all looks so great and more details. 27" is too small to enjoy 4k in my opinion, it still enjoyable but not so much, pixel are too small for me and windows look crap without scaling. unfortunately I didnt test 32". 40" is the perfect balance. But i still play in my 55" because i love big screen. I dont think i will buy a 8k screen in my life, because even at 4k you have to sit very close to see all details, at 8k i dont want to play only one feet of my 55" to see the details. 4K will suffice for my whole life. I dont think 8k will be a important buying factor in future. HDR is more important than 8k screen. About people playing in 1440p or 1600p , i recommend you to buy a 4k monitor , its still much better , the details are much better, it worth it. I prefer 4k at 60hz than 1440p at 120hz. I cant live without a 4k monitor or tv. The day you will play a pc game at ultra in 4k you wont turning back
To each their own. Personally I'd take lower resolution over lower refresh rate any day.
Low resolutions aren't as pretty, but they don't negatively impact the player much (and in fact is often are beneficial both in terms of game performance and in reducing the amount of visual noise on the screen, thus allowing you to more quickly focus on the important parts).
Low refresh rates on the other hand directly hinder a player's ability to process data in real time, and more importantly in my case, give me killer migraines.
Now if I were to buy a monitor for office work, 3D rendering, photography, or digital art then yes I'd absolutely prioritize resolution over refresh rates. For gaming however, refresh rate is king.
Personally, I do both, and I don't have unlimited money or the desk space for more than one monitor, so I split the difference and got an overclockable korean 1440 pls panel. High enough rate to keep my eyes from bleeding in games, high enough resolution and good enough colors for other work.
