Not only could i not go back to 60hz, there is no way i could go back to 1080, 1440 on a 24" screen looks so good.

this! exactly what I think also..

I think I went 1440p like 5 years ago

6 years ago for me.... people need to dump the 1080p crap

It wasn't until the last couple years where individual GPUs started getting powerful enough to push AAA games at 60fps @ 1440p with decent settings.

Increasing the resolution isn't as costly performance wise as it used to be on these newer GPUs, so it's viable now when it used to not be.

The problem I got, is decent monitors cost more than the freaking GPU does. You're looking at spending $500+ on a monitor. An additional $200 if you want Gsynch, then you're looking at $700-$800 for a monitor. 1080p/60hz monitors can be had for under $200. And have been that price for roughly 5 years. The price hasn't really dropped on 1440p/120hz monitors compared to what they were 5 years ago. I'd be willing to go maybe $350 on a 1440p/120hz monitor, but not any more.

Why are people willing to spend $700 on a GPU which will last 2 years but not $700 on monitor which will last longer?

Maybe they spent $700 on that 1080p monitor back when that was expensive, in the hope it *would* last longer smile.gif

In the comparison above by HardwareCanucks between an 8700k and a 2600K, it seems to suggest that if you're a pure gamer you'll see minimal gains moving to Coffee Lake. ph34r-smiley.gif

So what's the deal here? I thought we would see a huge leap from performance moving from Sandy Bridge to Coffee Lake? redface.gif

Also on other stuff discussed in this thread.....1080p is now dead? tongue.gif

Not really. I spend $700 CAD in 2011 for my U2711 2560x1440 IPS screen. Still good today after 6 years. The screen is the most important thing on a PC these days.

They used a GTX1070, if you use a GTX1080ti the difference would be bigger especially on a high refresh monitor.

Agreed since it is the component your eyes are constantly focused on, still happy with my Samsung S27B970D PLS 1440P monitor purchased way back in 2011 smile.gif
