Upgrading Monitor, Need help understanding G-Sync

Im wanting to upgrade to the monitor listed below. The price is going to drop for black friday and it seems like a decent deal. Below is also the current specs of my system. I play world of warships mostly, but you never know what I may start playing. I still have GTA V and some other older games i play.

https://www.costco.com/lg-32gk850f-b...100454130.html

I would like to get a bigger smother more resolution experience and need some help getting there. Currently gaming on a Dell S2340M, probably not the best monitor for the job.

I7 4790k @ 4.4 ghz
MSI x97 Gaming 7
2x8gb G.Skill Trident X series 2400
Crucial MX100 512 SSD
Evga GTX 970 SC
Rosewill Capstone 750m
Phanteks PH-TC14PE

Im not sure if i need to change some settings, or if my GPU setup just wont get me there. Seems like im at 75 fps at 1920x1080 the Dell S2340M. Not sure if its monitor limited, or if i have some setting in the Nvidia program enabled.

Supposedly that free sync on that monitor will work with gsync now. Nvidia has started playing nice i guess?

1440P on a 32 inch will give you a PPI of 91,79 which is pretty low and will look worse than 1440P on a 27 inch which have a PPI of 108,79
In other words a 32 inch is bit too big for 1440P and if you want a 1440P monitor a 27 inch will look better at the same distance

If you still want a 32 inch 1440P monitor you will need to move it futher away otherwise the lower PPI will make the picture look worse at the same distance
If you dont have room to move it futher away because you have a small desk stick with a 27 inch

From my experience anything with a PPI less than 100 looks terrible unless you move it really far away and at that point there is no reason to get s bigger monitor
32 inch is a good size for 4K but 1440P is bit too low a resolution for a monitor that size and the PPI is 91,79 for 1440P 32 inch and 133,68 for 4K 32 inch

1440P on a 27 inch give you a PPI of 108,79
