2080Ti move to 4k?

I am currently running at 1440p with my 1080Ti and I've upgrading to a 2080Ti this week. I am wondering if I should make the move to 4k or 120 Hz 1440p. I tend to prefer looks over high frame rates, but I am not sure how much of a difference there is between 1440p and 4k honestly. I have never actually used a 4k monitor before and a TV doesent cut it because that's just 4k up scaling.

Most recent 4K TVs can receive and display a 4K signal over HDMI.

If you're wondering about quality and performance, you can enable dynamic super resolution and run games at 4K which will be downsampled to your monitor's native resolution

uh

a native 4K TV fed with a 4K source isn't up scaling anything.

go in a store and take a look at one. surely there's somewhere you can see one and then make up your mind about what you want.

I've run a 2080 Ti at 4K via a good quality HDMI cable with a LG IPS native 4K TV @ (oc) 72Hz before w/o issues. My preference is DisplayPort, though.

I have a few things to say about this, actually.

If you're using a normal sized desktop display (27''-32''), then 1440p/144Hz is the superior viewing method. Granted 32'' is cutting it a bit close for 1440p, but I use it and I enjoy the refresh rates. My wife uses a 27'' 2160p LG panel, and although it does look nice, it does not look leagues better than my 32'' 1440p panel- but is harder to run.

If you're using a larger than normal display, say 48''+, then you will likely want to go for 4k to keep pixel density up. Another bonus of using such a large display is that you won't need to rely on desktop scaling in windows to have a decent experience in the desktop.

Ah, the eternal conflict, resolution vs refresh rate. Resolution is a funny thing. You think you're gonna see mega sharp textures, then struggle to see the difference. In short, high refresh rate is my personal favorite.
I had a 24" 1080p 144Hz monitor, now own a 27" 1440p 165Hz monitor, and own a 65" 4k OLED 60Hz display. In my opinion, the only purpose of high resolution is to make textures appear good on extremely large monitors. Basically, what makes textures appear sharp on your monitor is whether you can distinguish between two adjacent light sources. This is known as the Rayleigh criterion, and it is a function of the pixel density (something in the lines of: resolution/monitor size), as well as the distance you sit from the monitor. This means that if you sit very close, you need the quantity of resolution/monitor size to be a large number. However, once it reaches that number, increasing this ratio will yield no additional gains. And if you don't sit extremely close to the monitor, then you don't need the ratio of resolution/monitor to be very big.
So, if you have a 24" display, and let's say you sit a meter away from the monitor, it won't be easy to notice the difference between 1080p and 1440p, and it will be even more difficult to distinguish between 1440p and 4k. But if you have a 65" display, and you sit 10cm from it, then you will see the difference between all 3 resolutions.
Now, what about refresh rate. Refresh rate is going to affect the smoothness of things. It's not gonna affect scenery, it's gonna affect high paced motion. Refresh rate is not a function of how far you sit from the monitor, or how big it is, and it's effect is limited only by the refresh rate of your eye (which I have no idea how to calculate).
So, in short, if you want nice scenery views on a large monitor, you need 4k. But if you're a casual gamer that plays high-paced games on a monitor that is 27"-32", then 2k 144Hz would be the way to go.

I am using a 32" monitor and I sit about 3 feet away. That's what my setup will be. Right now I am using 1440p 75 Hz 32". It looks good, but of course there is always better.

Right now is probably the worst time to buy the 2080ti, ampere will most likely completely destroy it. ( unless you get it for real cheap )

Which LG monitor was this that you were able to OC to 72 Hz on?
