Hello. I currently have a 24 inch Dell 1080p monitor and I want to upgrade. I'm really interested in the new Ultra HD monitors like the Asus one that costs $650 but of course there are problems. The biggest problem for me would be low fps in games. I love playing at 60fps and hate anything under 60fps. I also like to play with all graphics settings maxed. I've looked at some benchmarks for games in Ultra HD and it just seems impossible. Dialing down settings would help with fps but I don't know what's better, low-med settings at Ultra HD or Max settings at a lower resolution. Even with low-medium settings the fps is still not that great though =/

Anyway, if Ultra HD is not feasible right now then what would be the next best thing for me? I'd like to spend no more than $500-$700. I want to be able to play with max settings and be at or near atleast 60fps (although I hear 144fps is amazing) I'm so used to 60fps being perfect for me that I don't see how much more perfect it can get lol.

Here are my specs...

Case- Carbide 500R
Mobo- MSI G45 Z87 gaming
CPU- i5 4670k (stock)
GPU- MSI 780 ti gaming (stock) 3gig
RAM- G.skill Ripjaw 1600 8 gigs
CPU cooler- Noctua NH-D14
SSD- Samsung 840 Pro 256
2 HDDs

I don't know much about the monitors these days but here are some things that come to mind...

1440p, 120hz or 144hz, low MS like 1MS, Gsync,

also my friend buys Ultrasharp monitors from Dell and I think they have much nice colors than regular monitors? I don't know :(  please help!! Thanks :) 

Best solution

The Dell ultrasharp monitors are known for very good contrasts (hence their names as well)
