So, the title says it all. I recently sold my 34" 3440x1440 display. I currently have a laptop with a GTX 1080, and thought that the built in display would be good enough, but now that I've used it exclusively for 2 months I've decided that it's just too small for long-term use/comfort.

I've checked tons of reviews online about the performance of my GPU at 4k, and I just don't know. I play a wide variety of games, big budget to indie. I do like to crank up the settings as well, so I know that as time goes on I'll have to turn some down. I'm stuck with the laptop for likely 2 more years, so that means I can't (probably) upgrade the GPU.

Knowing that, what would you fellow overclockers do:

4k, 3440x1440, 2560x1440, or 2560x1080?

I'm looking to purchase by the end of the year.

Well, this all depends on your preferred type of LCD and what you intend to do with it outside of gaming.

2560x1440@144+ is the sweet spot for gaming at 1080 or 1080ti level of performance, I think, and is the best compromise between resolution and motion clarity, but it won't be ideal for console gaming and movie/show watching.

With 4K60, you can view everything optimally, though you have to deal with loss of performance, inability to use Fastsync well, and a loss in motion clarity. But you also have the option to go the TV route, which can be an increase in picture quality unmatched by current 4K monitors, provided you go with a mid to high-end model.

Too many variables, man! Recommending monitors is almost as frustrating as buying them.

I'd go with 2560x1440 @ 165 Hz.

Tried several Ultrawide monitors - Don't understand the hype. I don't like it. Especially not for fastpaced fps.

I think it's better suited for casual RPG / MMO gaming.

I have a Samsung UE55KS7000 (KS8000 in the US), I came from a ROG Swift 1440p 144hz, and I can honestly say, I DO NOT MISS IT. The TV is a giant smart hub for everything, my PS4 Pro looks glorious on it, the PC outputs at 4:4:4 to it, and it looks stunning. The colours and HDR completely outweigh the benefits of the ROG Swift for me. This is my personal opinion. But getting rid of the ROG Swift for this TV was the best decision I ever made. Not only that, I can control my TV from my phone... I can stream games to it (if I wanted to) using Steamlink, I could not be happier.

I can't justify paying ridiculous amounts of money for TINY high Hz monitors, when really, I have to be honest here... I genuinely cannot tell the difference playing most games. The eye candy that HDR and 4k provides is out of this world and at 55 inches... everyone that sees it is instantly gob smacked at how good it looks.

When I had my ROG Swift, no-one said anything about it... No one was shocked at how good it looked. They saw the awful light bleed, they saw the poor viewing angles, and the fact it got insanely hot running 144hz that they were immediately turned off from the idea of ever purchasing one and were still ultimately happy with their 1080p 24" monitors. I tried to demonstrate G-Sync, and they couldn't tell the difference. I locked it to 60hz got them to play a game. They still couldn't tell the difference. These are just normal every day gamers, still rocking 2500k's and GTX 670's and still happy. I wish I could take a leaf out of their book. I've wasted thousands on computer parts only to be disappointed.

I've got a nice mid/high end 4k TV in the living room, but I can't always hook the lappy up to it to game on. I've also got 2 children under 2 and if they're awake I can't play my games in front of them (mostly anyway). I will very very rarely use the monitor for anything outside of gaming. Obviously web browsing and some youtube here and there, but mostly just gaming. My main genres are Shooters, RPGs, and MOBAs and all of their varying sub-genres. I play other random things as well, in other genres too, but those fill most of my limited gaming time nowadays.

I absolutely loved my old ultrawide....when it was supported. The issue is that a lot of what I played at the time, was filled with black bars getting it back to a 16:9 ratio. It was either bars or reg edits, and then the possibility of getting banned on Steam. I won't do that, because I can't afford to replace my library, haha.

That being said, I think ideally I'd like to get one of each, a 16:9 and a 21:9, but I have neither the space nor funds for both of them. The only high refresh display that I've used before is on my current laptop. It's nice, and all, but it's only 15". I'm really struggling with what to do here.

You bring up a great point. I would love to have HDR on my next monitor, because I see what a difference it makes on my KS8500 TV, but HDR on monitors is ridiculously expensive at the moment. On the flip side of that, I don't want something that big, mostly due to size constraints and such. I've never played anything with G-sync/Freesync before so I don't know what I'm missing there, but I have seen high refresh, and I can tell the difference.

I, like yourself and likely most of the members here, have spent thousands on yearly upgrades (or even sooner) just to move the quality slider from Awesome to Super Awesome! The laptop was my way to cut back (frankly I needed to, because of the two kids now). No more hardware upgrades until at least we get a house in the next year or two. So, I've just got to suck it up, which is hard for me because I'm a hardware snob myself. This is probably what is causing my "agony" in making this decision.

I'm looking to purchase by the end of the year.

I would think you'd be happiest over the long term with 2560x1440 as long as your on a GTX 1080...

I have both a 1440p G Sync Acer XB27OHU gaming monitor and a Samsung UN48JS9000F 4K television; I use both with a single GTX 1080ti but in the final analysis? I think the gaming experience on the 1440p G sync screen is a far better, more fluid solution than is the 4K TV... I just can't get over being able to blast everything in-game and still get well over 100+ frames per second in anything/everything that I play.

That being said ... when I really want to see how good any given game can look? I roll the 48" 4K Samsung TV over in front of my desk and just marvel at that panel's contrast and colors. I consistently see 60+ FPS on the 4K television but it just seems too slow compared to the uber fast 1440p monitor ... the TV is gorgeous to look at though and if I really suspend my hang up on 100+ FPS ... I can even game on it quite happily ... but always go back to the 1440p g sync screen ...

My sort of awkward arrangement my 4K TV is on a stand with castors so I roll it over in front of the desk to test gaming stuff:

...



...

It's novel and fun to play on the TV; truth be told, the colors, sharpness, contrast, etc.? Is much better than my Acer gaming monitor. But that 60HZ problem just rubs me the wrong way ... even when in "game mode" ... which this particular Samsung TV excels at ... it's just too slow ... I probably won't go full time 4K gaming until GPU's can consistently push 100+ FPS in everything I play and until 120HZ+ G Sync 4K panels are the norm ...

Best of luck ... I vote 1440p for your personal situation ...

1080 Ti is minimum for 4k and already struggles in a few games; two years from now it will surely not be a great experience at 4k in demanding games. I'd go 1440p with 120+ Hz refresh rate on a GTX 1080.

I am also choosing a monitor and I think 4k is the future. Getting 2k is pointless.
With 4k You get high dpi and everything looks better. PLus 4k panels are 10bit for most part.... But I am unsure what 4k monitor to recommend since I am looking to get one myself.

Digital foundry is playing 4k games even with stupid 1060. You just have to lower some setting most of time and it's ok. With 1080 and future cards, it will not be a problem

I'd go with 1440p at 144Hz+. It's not perfect, but no monitor is. I do find that resolution+refresh to be a good balance for the time being though. Ultrawide is nice but lack of support can be frustrating at times so I can't 100% recommend that. 4k is limited to 60Hz unless you're willing to go with the Zisworks X28 but that is an extremely limited monitor in terms of features. It would be nice if you could own all 3 types of displays and use each as you see fit, but if you can only have ONE display and need it to be a decent at everything, 1440p 144Hz.
