The way 1080p looks on a 1440p monitor varies according to how the monitor's software handles upscaling. On some monitors, it won't actually look all that bad (probably even unnoticeable to some people). On others, it will look really badly. The price of the monitors tends to, on average, correlate with how well they handle up and downscaling.
If there was an external scaler with DP in/out that had good scaling and support up to 2560x1440+ I'd probably buy it. I can tolerate most monitor and GPU scaling but, I don't care for it.

At Welliam: TTSun has summed it up pretty well. I advise keeping aspect ratio and not filling the screen on anything you decide to upscale.

Yea, 1080p youtube videos fullscreen look much better on my x34 then my XB270HU. Haven't tested upscaling games on the x34 that I can remember. I pretty much turn off scaling by default in Nvidia control panel. Upscaling in games is where I draw my limits.

I'd go 1440p and deal with it until you can upgrade your GPU.

Hello,

Having a 1440p U2515h monitor I should mention, at least on mine (maybe because of 1440p on 25") 1080 looks fine, I was using a gtx 970 running Just Cause 3 last night and I got fps drops so I decided to switch to 1080 since I didn't want to spend time tweaking the graphic settings, looked perfectly fine to me.

cheers,
