So, right now I have a 7950(1100 core /1400 vram) and a main monitor at 1680x1050 with an auxiliary monitor at 1280x1024. The higher res one I game and code(cs major) on, the lower res one I have a web browser or something helpful open for when I code incase I need to look up something. After working this summer I plan to get a 290, but I want a gaming monitor worthy of one aswell. Since its gonna be Christmas soon I decided to get myself one now as a present.
Ether this one (1440p @ 60hz) http://www.microcenter.com/product/384780/EQ276W_27_WQHD_IPS_LED_Monitor
The 1440p one is a larger screen, better res, has about the same gtg lag as the one I use now, and has about 20% pixels than what I have now combined so that would be nice for writing code, especially since I can hook the other two up for auxiliary. But 1440p takes a lot more gpu power than 1080 to get decent frames, granted I don't need max settings I'm happy with 4xaa(I can more than live with 2x), and medium settings so long as it gets me native res at a decent frame rate.
The 1080p one has dat 1ms gtg time, I have an unhealthy love of all things low lag, and is 144hz. Yeah its lower res and smaller but I can deal with that, 3 inches isn't that important to me I'm male, especially since I do have more than one monitor to do my work on, and it'll take more gpu power to get > 100fps but like I said I can live with medium settings.
Since I'll have to turn down the settings in most games to get the most out of the monitor, until I get a better gpu, I guess its down to deciding if I want a higher res more or dat low input lag and higher frame rate(which since I play a lot of online multi player with my friends will actually be useful to me).
I feel like this should be an easy choice but for me for some reason its not. What would you do were you me, I need a second opinion. Sorry for the long post.
