Best resolution for my PC (QHD vs FHD)

Hello, so i've decided to buy a new monitor ( i currently own a LG E2251 1080p 60hz ) and i've narrowed it down to these 3:
- https://altex.ro/monitor-led-va-samsung-c24fg70fqu-23-5-curved-full-hd-negru ; so this one has them all 144hz, freesync, 1 ms response time, 1080p and i like that it's a little curved
- https://altex.ro/monitor-led-gaming-asus-pb277q-27-2k-wqhd-negru/ this is QHD with 75 hz and 1ms response time
- https://altex.ro/monitor-led-va-samsung-c27f591fdu-27-curved-full-hd-argintiu/ ; and this is a bigger 1080p but it only has 60hz and 4ms respons time

(I'm sorry that i posted the links only in my language but i couldn't find all of them on their original site)

So my question, is my PC capable of doing 1440p gaming? (i'll wrote my rig down) I mean, i can go to something from medium to high settings, but i don't want everything on low and only the resolution up, and is it that bad looking downscaling a 2560x1440 to 1920x1080 in some titles that are more demanding? or should i stick with 1080p, having in mind i don't want to upgrade my PC pretty soon cause i just bought a new GPU and CPU.
One more thing, is 27 inch too much for a 1080p and is it worth that 144 hz and 1ms respons time over the 3 extra inches between thoes samsung monitors if you guys say i should go with FHD instead of QHD.
Thanks in advance!

Full specs:
Gigabyte Aorus RX 580 8GB
AMD FX 8350 4.2
Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2x4) DDR3 1333 mhz
Asus M5A97
WD Caviar Black 1TB , WD Caviar Blue 1TB
Corsair CX 600W 80+ bronze

P.S. : I play a variety of games, from FPS multiplayer and moba to AAA titles so i don't want to decide based on that.

  1. You should be able to Get QHD 60fps and medium- high settings. Some even Ultra Though that CPU will slow it down FPS wise.

    Your CPU is not very good. But your graphics card is. Your CPU will not keep up with 144hz. Your CPU will also bottleneck many newer AAA games at 1440p (or 1080 in some cases), but you should generally be able to play 1440p at 60-75hz (60 being more realistic). Remember to cap your FPS to a max of 60 (to match your HZ(refresh rate)).

    So among those you are looking at, I suggest you get the Asus pb277q. You can try it at 75hz (which means you need to try to get to 75hz to 75fps to avoid tearing as the monitor has no free-sync) but playing at 60hz might give you a smoother gaming experience and no tearing.
  3. you current PC specs are fine for 1080p@60Hz
    over 100FPS in most games you will need a newer CPU like the latest intel i5 or i7
    for over 1080p you need a more powerful graphics card.
    Monitors are long term investment that will outlive the PC many times, so wait until you can comfortably afford 1440p@144Hz or better monitor.
  4. Thank very much for you for your help guys!
