    [SOLVED] Gaming in 1080p on a 4K monitor?

    How much would the picture quality suffer if I were to play 1080p games on a 4K monitor ? I own a 1080p 144hz display but my PC specs are not good and cannot be improved easily in my country. So i decided to buy a PS4 Pro and replace my monitor with a 4k one instead. Any tips or useful information ?
