My question will most likely be subjective but would like opinions to help me make a decision. I’ve been waiting on prices to drop on monitors over the last couple of years; mainly 1440p 144hz prices. The prices for me personally have finally got to a point that it’s in the realm of affordability for me. I currently have two 1080p 60hz monitors and a EVGA RTX 2070. I have two options.
My first option would be to buy two 1440p monitors and then have a 4 monitor setup.
The second option would be to buy just one 1440p monitor for a 3 monitor setup.
Now I can easily afford two 1440p monitors and I generally have the opinion of the more monitors the better. However, I don’t necessarily need 4 monitors and while I can afford two 1440p monitors the 1440p monitors would only be used for gaming. My brain initially jumps to the conclusion of what will having an additional 1440p monitor add to the equation beyond having 4 monitors.
If you were in my shoes would you splurge for two 1440p’s or just get the one? I have plenty of money but I’m also a person who doesn’t like to spend money on stuff just for the sake of it. So practically speaking I’m thinking the smart move would be to buy just the one 1440p for gaming and having the added benefit have 3 monitors now instead of two.
