Cant decide between 32" HDTV vs 27" 2K monitor

As the title says, I cant decide between 32" HDTV vs 27" 2K monitor.

I currently have a 24" HD monitor. The reason I want to upgrade the monitor is because it feels small and gauges and details are not clear enough. Size wise 32" is good but then I also want to promote to 2K resolution because I will also upgrade to GTX1070 from GTX770. I think, GTX1070 will provide good and stable 60 FPS at 2K with high settings.

 

But then 27" is much smaller compared to 32" when upgrading from 24".

 

I cant be sure about 32" 2K monitors due to pixel density. But I wouldnt mind getting one if the picture quality is good.

 

I wanted to get some opinions before I put some orders.

 

My PC specs:

i7-4790K, 16GB RAM, SSD, GTX1070

Before you buy anything, take a long look at the 4k options. Not knowing your budget I can't really say much but I bought a 4k 40" monitor about a year ago, so I would imagine the prices have dropped even lower.

Well I'm actually more into VR but I'll wait a few more years for it to ripe.

 

I would go with 4K as cichlidfan mentioned but I am skeptical about the performance with GTX1070. I also tried a 43" HDTV and it was a little bit too big of a screen for my taste.

 

Should GTX1070 perform well with 4K, I might consider 40" or 32" because it will be smaller than my TV but with higher detail.

 

How would a GTX1070 perform on 4K resolution with high settings?

It will probably depend on the CPU as well, but based on my experience, I would expect it to do quite well.

huex27,

 

Like you I was waiting for VR to improve more so I got a 34" ultra wide monitor with G-Sync for DCS World. After spending all that money i decided to give VR a try as well. Now I would only fly with VR and would not even consider flying using the 34" ultra wide flat screen. It turns out that all the resolution on the planet does not make things better than feeling like you are really in the aircraft flying and having head tracking that is so realistic you might as well really be there. My advise is try VR before you spend too much cash unless you can afford both.....

This is a good point. I don't fly a lot of VR because I need to be aware of what is going on around me (two stupid dogs). However, the level of immersion does beat resolution every time.

Thanks guys, now I'm even more confused :)

 

I've been inspecting VR section of the forums.

My concern about the glasses is not beacuse they're not good enough but current GPUs cant provide good stable 90 FPS yet. Otherwise even DK2 amazed me after I tried it for a few hours. I can only imagine CV1 is better.

 

Although GTX1080+Oculus Rift is over-bugdet for me, I can still consider if I'll get good FPS.

 

As far as CPU concerned, I think I can stick with 4790K for a little while longer.

mine is "only" a cheap HTTV 1980p but I can't see pixels and can-t go back to a conventional monitor anymore...

I'm with 32" 2560x1440 75Hz Monitor and I'm very happy with DCS. My GTX1070 maintain almost constantly 75fps (V-Sync ON). It was good upgrade over 24" monitor, but after a year with it I feel it like regular monitor.

Next step will be 48" 4K TV or next version of Oculus.

I have recently upgraded my monitor to a 27" WQHD (2560 x 1440) and I can say it's fantastic with DCS. I am using GTX970 and no frames drop.

 

don't go lower than 32" for 4K in order to get the max of it.

Who ever plays on my system..or just watches us playing..is blown away by Gsync and this Asus screen from sig.

 

4k might be nice..some friends are trying to get theirs smooth ( LOL )..none reached that state yet..OK..they took ONLY 1070's from Asus OC2 line....a very good card btw..

 

that card would "explode" my 27" and deliver 100+ everytime I dare to say.

 

4k is limited to 60Hz...that's a plain joke for gamers..cmon SIXTY HERTZ ???

 

if they sell 100Hz or better for a fair price I may consider..till then I enjoy a system that is FAST, SMOOTH and AFFORDABLE...and 1440p is a good resolution for 27"..I dont miss another 1.5mil pixels that tilt almost any card around.

 

Bottom line for my gaming:

 

!!Hertz over Pixels!!
