Hello all,

I am a gamer at heart, Im looking at 2k QHD 1440p or 4K UDH 2160p for gaming. Looking for a monitor that between 28"-30", Price range between 400-500$

I am upgrading my Video card from a 570gtx to probably a single VC solution 980gtx or maybe even 2 980's.

Any suggestions why i would want 1440p or 2160p or vice versa?

Thanks

Two 980s will push 4k with decent settings. You won't be able to max out everything, but that's just a consideration. If you go 4K, you'll have the monitor already purchased for when you next upgrade your video cards in a few years. At the same time, there will be better 4K monitor options at that point as well.

I'd save the money now and get a nice 1440p monitor with a single 980. The quality of monitor will be better, and you'll save money on the video cards for now. You might then have some extra cash in a year or two when quality 4K monitors are available for a reasonable price. The 4K monitors in the $500 range are not very good and will strain your eyes pretty quickly.
