Hello, :)

i'm thinking of upgrading my 1080p 144hz monitor to a 1440p 27" easier to find locally with decent price that 2k 24"
the reason is for more crisp image with text/gameplay/etc...)

but when it comes to the specs difference..:

(1080p@24")-(2k@27")
(91.79PPI)-(108.79PPI)

--Difference--
(17PPI+) = (15.6%+)

From the numbers it's doesn't look that great of upgrade!

is there anything i missed about 2k being better than 1080p :) :) ?

answers much appreciated thx <3 <3 <3

The difference is the larger screen size.

If you go to a 27" 1080p monitor, you're getting 81.6ppi which, in my experience, is a grey area for people. Some are ok with it, others (myself included) find it off-putting.

At 1440p you'll need a more expensive GPU to run games at the same FPS, so it's not necessarily just the cost of the monitor you're talking about.

So you found a diffrence between 81ppi vs 91 ppi and found a 10ppi diffrence "off-putting"
so the increasing in ppi + larger screen size would be great

thx really <3 you made my mind up
and don't worry about the GPU if i didn't have good one i'll never think of going this route
