My sig rig at 1440p? Would games look fuzzy/blurry at 1080p? - Page 3

post #21 of 34
Do you play a lot of modern AAA games?

I have been on 1440p for about 4 years now with my PB278Q and currently am still running that resolution off my OCed GTX670.
Lately all I have been playing is BF4 with some settings ultra, some medium, and performance hogs with minor visual impact turned off and I can get over 60 FPS I believe most of the time and I know the counter will say 90s when chaos isn't going on around me.
I am just now finally getting serious on upgrading to a 1070 to start the 3-4 year life cycle over again for myself.

With a 780, I am surprised if you couldn't enjoy 1440p for a bit until you can pick up a newer GPU.
I realize you likely won't get a constant 144 FPS at 1440p with the 780 right now, but when you eventually pop in a newer GPU, the monitor will be ready for the higher frame rate.
I enjoy the 1440p resolution and personally have never found the need to even try scaling as the size isn't an issue for me, but others may certainly desire giant text to read.
Also, while the 2500K is showing its age, it is still a worthwhile chip and shouldn't be a main concern to upgrade until you have the funds to do a full swap into a modern platform which won't be cheap.

Unfortunately I have no experience with pushing 1080p resolution games onto my 1440p monitor.

Oh, I'm not looking for 144 FPS (I know that will never happen unless I turn almost all eye-candy off). G-SYNC's got my back for sub-144 FPS and it works like some sort of black magic (it's butter-smooth and extremely responsive).

 

I doubt I'd want to use scaling on a 27" monitor at 2560x1440. I mean, I'd expect it to look like 1920x1080 on a 24", or 1680x1050 on a 22". Y'know? Even if it doesn't, I can still use scaling. No big deal. :)

 

Y'know what, I think I'm going to do it. I know that I'd be happier with it. Sure, the XB241H is pretty awesome, but I live at my computer and there are things about it that I'm not really happy living with right now.

I had a the same setup with almost same oc's, I played some games on a XB270HU and, it was ok except on very demanding games (crysis 3, shadow of mordor ...).
Gsync helps a lot, so it should be ok until you upgrade the gpu.

Regarding the resolution you always want to play on native (expept on some competitive games where you dont care about picture quality), lower res means blur, better lower some settings than that.

Why not upgrade your GPU and then start saving for a monitor to purchase around Black Friday?
Also you could wait for labour day sales to buy the monitor? (that's around 2 weeks?)

Regarding the resolution you always want to play on native (expept on some competitive games where you dont care about picture quality), lower res means blur, better lower some settings than that.

 

I know that the native resolution is best. That's why I'm asking how bad it would really be to play games at 1080p on a 1440p 27" monitor.

 

I don't know how accurate of a representation it was, but I used DSR to play my games (including Crysis 3) at 2560x1440, and the games were absolutely unplayable. Even at 1080p, I'm having to make compromises with the in-game graphics settings, and I hate making such compromises.

 

However, I still think I'd be happier with a monitor like the Dell S2716DG because at least then I'd have it for that time when I finally get a better GPU and then later on a better CPU. I'd have to play my games at 1080p on that monitor though, and I know that the native resolution is always best and so that's why I am asking. I want to know how bad it would be. Would I be unahppy with it for the 2-3 months I'd have to wait until I could buy a new GPU? Would it be distracting? Annoying? What would it be like?

I have other large expenses coming up that can't be avoided, and after experiencing 144Hz (160Hz currently), 1ms response time and G-SYNC, I'd much rather have a new monitor first and then wait a few months until I can afford a new GPU. The new monitor improved everything quite a bit! The monitor that I am replacing is an 8-year old Samsung 2253BW. I hope I don't need to say any more than that. :) I would still like to replace this XB241H because I've grown tired of the OSD coming up dead-center when it reconnects and tells me I'm using DP. It gets in the way, y'know? That alone is annoying enough for me to replace it. Plus, as I complained about before, the upper-left corner is darker than the rest and it can sometimes be annoyingly distracting for things like being here on OCN. It's even worse if I warm up the color temperature using f.lux or if I use the monitor's built-in Blue Light feature.

 

Besides, I don't know how much time I have left before the 2253BW suddenly dies on me. I decided to just replace it now while it still seems to be working perfectly instead of waiting for it to die. If I had waited for it to die, then I would have ended up being without a computer until I got it replaced. For me to be without a computer would be pretty horrible. It is everything to me. I live at it. I depend on it. If I didn't have a computer even for 1 day, then I'd be awfully bored.

s2716dg here, tried changing the resolution to 1080p

Desktop: 1440p looks a lot sharper. 1080p is blurred. That's hell of a lot ppi lost so the outcome was predictable.
Witcher 3: Surprisngly enough, the game looks better than downscaled 1080p desktop, that's for sure. Of course it's not anywhere near as detailed as 1440p but better than desktop. TW3 has sharpening though, so it might or might not account for some of the improvement.

Wow, thank you for doing a more thorough test than I expected! I mean, I wouldn't be using 1080 at the desktop, but your test was good because you got to see the difference between the look at the desktop vs. a video game.

 

Now I'm curious: would you ever be able to play Witcher 3 at 1080p and actually forget that it's at 1080p?

like I said, it'd never look as good, witcher 3 being a very detailed game graphically I'd say no. 1440p with sharpening is just crystal clear. 1080p with sharpening is just ok. But the question is what do you favor more. I think "visual fidelity" is not only the resolution and detail, visual fidelity is movement response and blur as well. I'd probably prefer 75 fps at 1080p than 45 fps 1440p most of the time, unless I was free roaming and just looking how well it looks.

Yeah, I'm playing Crysis 3 at 1600x900 right now and it seems to look identical to 1920x1080p to me. Maybe I'm worried about nothing. Even the menu still looks as sharp as before.

 

I think Crysis 3 might be the best test on my computer because it might be the most-detailed and best-looking game I personally have.

There's no harm in switching, I do it all the time. Sometimes I play @120Hz ULMB with lowered details, sometimes I turn up all the possible eye candy and use g-sync while maintaining 60-70 fps. Both are good IMO, I like switching between them. Same goes for most of my games, be it RPG or FPS.

btw I just remembered my monitor has a fast response option, I forgot about it, never used it before. Hot damn the response is fast in fast mode.

in addition I'll just say that buying a better monitor and then just waiting to upgrade the GPU is my preferred method. It's better than getting a super fast gpu on to suffocate on your old display, then when you finally buy the display you find out that GPU market changes a lot faster and doing things in the other way round would have been better. The visuals depend mostly on your display IMO, it's worth getting a really good one that'll be an upgrade over the old one in various aspects.
