Here we go again with the resolution. If you game you want this resolution unless you want to drop $1000 for a GPU that will drive the higher resolution... if you had $1000 for a gpu you would not be looking at this monitor Smilie
The point is, you see the pixels, and it's not a barely noticablething, it'sglaringlyobvious. But 1k for a 1440p+ GPU? Lmao, no. My 1080 is showing it's age at 1440p/144hz but, I definitely didn't pay over $550 at the time for the 1080. Also, the RTX 3080 came out(yes, it's out of stock, and probably will be for a long time), and for $699 that slams 1440p/does 4k pretty well, even more so if the title supports DLSS.

Total misconception. I ran 1440P with GTX 670, GTX 970, GTX 1070.

The monitor I used was Apple Cinema Display 30" (got it used for a bargain back the days)

1080P is great at 24". If you want to keep the same density, it becomes 1440P at 27"

Most gamers worry about Frame rate drop and never moved out of 1080P. But this was also true 10 years ago.
I play Overwatch now on 1070, 1440P res with old 4790 CPU. If I can run 1440P, most current gamers can.

The reason why people constantly argue for 1440P Ips... Is once you go up a res. You won't go back down. It's too bad people thinks their pc can o ly run 1080P.

I would MUCH rather turn up all the GPU goodies vs having to lower things just to allow the higher resolution which you will not notice in games. Today in modern games you cannot run 1440p with everything turned up on a 1070 if you want more than 30fps. I'm not one of these "I need 60fps at all times" kind of guy but the dips can kill you if your GPU drops to 15fps for a second or two.

Having said all of this I still stand by my original statement. How many people, if they want to be honest. Bought a 3440 x 1440 and either ended up playing their games at a lower resolution or ended up having to buy a better GPU?

How many ended up playing at 3440 x 1440 but having to turn down their graphics to get an acceptable fps?

Me? I had a 1070 and talked myself into a 3440 and then I ended up moving to a 2080 super and now I can run games at 3440 x 1440 like I used to at the lower resolution but it ended up costing me an extra $700 for the 3440 x 1440 monitor and $800 for the 2080 Super.

So for a grand total of $1500 I ended up playing games the way they used to look. I am so smart! LOL

I've had both and sitting two feet away I did not see any pixels. This is something people tell themselves in order to purchase something they do not need. I did the very same thing. It's human nature. Once you talk yourself into "needing" 3400x1440 resolution, then you talk yourself into needing a monitor that does a 120 or 144 refresh because the people on the web review pages told you that you get an extra tenth of one second response time in first person shooters and this is all you need to increase the size of your manhood Smilie

Once you do that then, of course, you need a new GPU because in order to drive 3440x1440 at 120 or 144 frames per second you need an insane GPU to drive that. When does it end? And to thing most of the world plays the very same games on 60inch TV's at 1080 resolution (wow those pixels must look like postage stamps LOL) on a console that costs them $300

Human nature is a b-tch LOL

I dunno. I had an 29" UW(2560x1080) years ago, I could notice the pixels. I can't on my old 27" 1440p monitor. I can notice them occasionally on my 32' 1440p panel too. Everyone's eyes are different though. 144hz is very enjoyable, I'm not sure where you're going with that. It doesn't even need to be an FPS to be enjoyable. In fact, I hardly play any FPS games anymore. Do I need 144hz? No. But it's a SIGNIFICANT difference, and I quite enjoy it. My main panel is a VA, and I do wish the response time was a bit quicker, why? Because when I do play any kind of FPS, you definitely can see a smearing on grey back grounds. If it were faster, it wouldn't have the issue. Why would I ever buy 120/144hz+ for a console though? That's dumb, they're not even capable of pushing the frames. If your eyes can't distinguish the difference then so be it, but mine definitely do lol.

by 1440p, I'm referring to 2560x1440.

You don't need 4K but 2K is nice. Especially Excel work and data analysis work.

Price back up to $329 on EBay for this.

But this 32" monitor looks like a better deal (32" 2560x1440p vs 34" 2560x1080):
