A single 1080 can handle 1440p just fine. I have one and a 1440p Ultrawide and it wipes the floor with this resolution.

a custom 980ti can already rip through 1440p like a chainsaw unless you go crazy on gameworks or AA. 2000/1100 GTX 1080 plays everything on ultra like a boss.

If everything on ultra and like a boss means 50s in witcher 3 then yes " like a boss"

yes, if 57-58 min fps which happens once in a while in one game discredits this card for 1440p then you really let nvidia convince you to buy that Titan XP with their "only all gameworks on is ultra" scheme tongue.gif
I'd be possibly interested in doing a run of witcher 3 with you in the same location cause I've played around 60hrs of TW3 on my 1080 and lowest I've seen is 53 fps and that was once but it's hard to recreate the exactly identical scenario since the weather and camera angle impacts the fps in a big way so it'd be a waste of time since we're already splitting hairs over a few fps. But I'm pretty sure the drops below 60 fps are like 58 fps and it's very infrequent. What clocks is your card running ? Mine is 2063/1100.

Problem is hitting 60fps in games doesnt make it 1440p card, when something hits 100+ fps in 1440p that`s what I`d call a 1440p card

why did you even buy it then ? you're 40 fps away from your target 100 fps in TW3.
lol.
anyway I only tested FC4 and Arkham knight briefly, it's hanging around 100 fps in there but I spent most of my time playing TW3. I waited till holidays to buy that 1080 and finally start HoS and B&W on a fancy new card. 60-70 fps is kind of slow and blurry compared to +100 fps but it's fine by me as long as it's not v-sync lag/stutter fest

I can't help but crack up at your definition of a 1440p card, cause that means we don't have 1080p cards on the market yet lachen.gif at this point we may try to contact aliens to see if they already invented a gpu for 1080p cause I'm pretty sure a 2100MHz 1080 can't keep steady 100 fps in each and every game maxed out to the limit.

I have a 1070 and it handles a 32" 2560x1440p 75hz monitor just fine.

bf4 ultra never below 130fps..
Archeage 120+fps
Starwars bf, not exactly sure but I bet its well over 100fps.

my friend believes that the 1070 will perform well in 1440p for a long while as the memory bus on it is enough to ensure being futureproof, however this does come with a disadvantage as when 4k is mainstream and 1440p is the new 900p, it will cost more to upgrade the monitor down the road.
the good part about a 1080 and a 4k monitor later is that i won't have to shell out money to upgrade to the new standard, however my friend is saying that while the 1080 does well now in 4k he suspects the performance with future games will deteriorate faster then a 1070 at 1440p will. what do you guys think?

Man get the 1440p monitor

I dont think I would get a 4k monitor until they get like minimum of 75hz refresh rates and gsync.

Thread Starter 
I should also add that I want a IPS panel this time around, as 1: a IPS panel is cheaper to buy than 144hz 1ms, and 2: my current monitor is 1ms and I notice absolutely no difference between any other monitor.
