Hi all
so im thinking of picking up a new monitor. just wondering about 2 things,
is a 1440p monitor worth the money? how much does a cheap one cost?

will my rig handle 1440p settings? if so, what settings will i get in big AAA titles?

i5 4430 3.0ghz
h87 hd3 motherboard
8gb corsair vengence
eva gtx 760 sc w/acx cooling

thank you

Anything above outdated 1080p is better and yes higher resolution is certainly worth the money if you have it. Even better is 2560 x 1600 Ive been gaming on for over 3 years. About to move to 4K when the prices come down some more.

Your GPU will do the best only on 1080p, on 1440p it will start lag in some games and cheapest quality good monitor costs about 500$ get some good 24inch 1080p monitor and you'll be fine :)

but im a bit short on cash, i have about £300, or about $450-$500, will this get me a decent 1440p monitor? currently im on a 24 inch 1080p monitor.

1440p is great but with your rig it will be a bit hursh! especially 2gb vram may not be sufficient for some upcoming titles or even on some current ones on higher-max settings.if though, a new gpu will be in your plans in the near future then i guess 1440p can be an option!

well then, i think a 1440p monitor will have to wait. i could get 2 more 1080p monitors and have a triple monitor setup. thanks for the help.
