I am currently running on 1600 x 900 monitor

my specs :

i5 4670k
Asus Maximus VI Formula
Gtx 780


I know these specs are really high for that resolution :p  .

What is better 1440p or 1080p with 3D ?

120 Hz or 60 Hz ??

If you are into FPS games, then I suggest a 1080p 120/144Hz monitor. If you are into MMO/RPG's, then 2560x1440 would be optimal, as the more screen you can see the better.

Well they do not make 1440p 120Hz monitors, so yes, 1080p would be better in your case. In FPS games, a high framerate will be more useful than more pixels.

Bigger the screen isn't always better. A bigger screen at 1080p will begin to lose image quality, as opposed to a smaller 23 or 24 inch screen. Future SLI does not change the fact that higher resolution monitors currently do not support a Refresh rate higher than 60Hz. My friend recently got another 680 for SLI, and he also got a 144Hz 24 inch 1080p monitor. I would take a high refresh rate over a larger pixel count any day. This is the monitor that I would recommend:

The colors are pretty bad at stock, but that can be fixed with a simple color profile download.
