Should I upgrade to a 2560x1440 monitor for my beefy gaming rig?

I'm already using a 1920x1080 monitor and I wanted to simply know, is it worth it?

... Well without telling us what your "beefy gaming rig" IS, and without telling us what games you like to play, then how can we give you an answer?

If you play competitive games, get a 120Hz monitor. If you play mostly single player games and want them to be even prettier, get a higher resolution monitor.

In that case an upgrade of some type is due, because using a $1000 graphics card with a $200 monitor is kinda... pointless.

Consider a 1600p monitor, or a 1440p overclockable monitor.
