    Hey guys supp? Dont know if is there i put my question but I will put it anyway. So currently I have a LG 23" 2360 16:9 1920x1080 monitor with a refresh rate of 60Hz. I know my GPU and CPU both can handle 1440p so my question is.

    Are there any 27" 16:9 2560x1440p monitor with a refresh rate of 120hz or 144hz? I prefer 144hz. Money isnt a problem but i prefer spending a maximum for this type of monitor 400/500euros :p btw my gpu and cpu are gtx 770 dcii oc 2gb + i7 4770k 4.3ghz at moment

    a single 770 will have a problem running more than 60 FPS on new games at 1440p. My 3930k @ 4.3ghz/780ti system has problems with newer games and keeping 60 FPS at 1600p. Getting a 120 or 144Hz 1440p monitor for a single 770 is a waste, just get a 60Hz 1440p monitor.

    This, and this, and some more of this. Unless you fancy yourself a pro CSGO player or something, I see little point in a 144hz monitor.

    I owned a 144hz monitor, overclocked it, it was TN, and I used it for about 6 months before I sold it. IPS is simply superior, screw the extra 3ms input lag, you will never notice it. And obviously you'll never see 144FPS on 1440/1600P unless you're runing XFire or SLI, and maybe playing LoL or Hello Kitty Island Adventure.

    Well I tested mine gpu on a 27 monitor 1440p that my friends have and i was all ok. Titanfall same settings that i have on 1080p running stable at 60fps never drop and never goes up because this game is capped to 60fps xD. On bf4 i lost 10 fps of average so instead of getting 100fps i get 90fps, and 70/75 on big map with full 64slots, Crysis 3 my fps gone down from 80 to 60 and sometimes 55fps with all settings in high but shadows low/off and msaa x4. CS GO 300fps because its a cpu game :p cod ghosts i have the same fps 91. But I will buy a new gpu the 780ti because its more future proof and i can buy it from a store paying 150euros/month during 4 months and mine 770 i will sell to a friend for 240euros

    Those are your Max FPS figures, I'd be interested in your minimum FPS figures and average, because even taking your Max FPS figures into account, that does not scream "buy a 144hz monitor to capitalize" to me at all.
    Get yourself a nice 1440p IPS monitor, ignore the 144hz hype. Until it comes to IPS, I have no intention of ever downgrading to TN again.

    Are you looking for advice, or for people to tell you to go ahead and buy 120/144hz monitors? I see a lot of people trying to justify an idea once it's in their head, sometimes it's not always best.

    Those are currently my average fps on my friends monitor. CRYSIS 3 MAX FPS: 170 MIN FPS: 4 INTESIVE BATTLES
    BATTLEFIELD 4 MAX FPS: 160 MIN FPS: 60
    TITANFALL MAX AVG MIN FPS: 60
    COD GHOSTS MAX MIN AVG FPS: 60
    I did a test and the cpu matters too because with my other pc(fx 4300 oc to 4.5ghz) on the 1080p monitor i cant at the same settings 50 fps on crysis 3 -_-"

    GSync is also quite interesting to me. I've been on the fence as to whether I'm tempted to jump on it or not, as it has quite a high price point over standard IPS.

    Do g-sync IPS/PLS monitors exist at all? All I see are TN panels over 120 Hz that have g-sync.

    What he was saying is that gsync monitors are really expensive compared to ips panel monitors :/ i can get a 27" ips monitor for the price of the aoc gsync 24" 144hz monitor :/

    Asus claimed to have one coming Soon(tm)

    EDIT: I don't get why GSync is being pushed on 144hz TN panels, GSync works best between 40-60FPS anyway, or at least when FPS drops dramatically. It makes little sense to use it when you're gunning at 144FPS and drop a little down to 120 or something. I'm supposing they're dumping it in everything that will turn a profit because of marketing crapwords. IPS panels are still expensive, and quite simply adding GSync to them won't encourage people to buy them because they will be even more overpriced. The market is just in a completely crap place right now, and instead of 1600P IPS/IGZO becoming affordable mainstream, we're getting 4K TN panels being made as cheap as humanly possible and still being sold at £500 a piece.

    My IPS panel probably isn't sold anymore, and there are a lot better ones that I'd buy if I was looking now. I have to say Dell make some shiny ones, and the DGM's in the UK look pretty swanky. I'm not sure which ones are available in your country.

    I t
    I think ita because to be a more future proof monitors because on the future you will see many pcs running on ultra settings at 120 or 144 fps on that kind of monitors with 120hz and 144hz. For example a gtx 990ti will be running for fine 120fps or 144fps on gsync monitors at ultra with 2560x1440p :p just a tough

    Huh? Are you saying your system performs better than my 3930k/780ti system?

    Crysis 3, single player level in tunnels right after killing the first boss Ceph, 2560*1600, all settings to very high I get between 48-55 FPS

    BF4, single player, forgot name of level, but it's the one where at the beginning your character is being interrogated/tortured with a stun gun, 2560*1600, all setting very high, I get between 80-100 FPS

    Titanfall, 2560*1600, all settings to highest setting, pegged at 60 FPS

    I'm not trying to talk shit about your system, I'm sure it performs nicely. But I find it very hard to believe your 4770k @ 4.2ghz/GTX 770 system performs better than this, even at the slightly lower resolution-

    Worthy consideration since you run a dual monitor setup already:

    I forgot to say i changed to 4.3ghz x) bf4 i dont have full ultra or high. Dont even need full ultra for multiplayer shadows are useless on games like titanfall and bf4. Titanfall is more a cpu game and there are things u dont need to multiplayer :p i know a lot of pc tweaks thats why i can achieve that fps with good quality and performance man :) my friend have the same rig that you have byt he changed from the i7 3970k to a brand new i7 4790k and the hero vii and he have more fps than me at 1080p and 1440p :/ but yes i can achieve great fps with this gpu. Tough there is games and things u performe better than me. U have a great pc :p i just want that gpu u have ^^
