Question Buy 1080p or 1440p second monitor?

Apr 16, 2020
Hey Y'all!

So, I am currently playing on a 1080p, 240hz monitor because I play games that function at higher fps on a competitive level. However, I also stream and I want to start playing some single player games as well. I am in the market for either a 1080p 144hz monitor or a 1440p 144hz monitor as my secondary monitor. I'm wondering if a 1440p monitor at 27" would be a good upgrade choice to boost the graphics of single player games and make the text in my stream chat easier to read on my second monitor, as well as boost the graphics of single player games, or if I should just buy another 1080p monitor

Also, is a 24 inch 1440p monitor worth it if I am sitting relatively close to my monitor (maybe feet from it? That's a rough guess)?

My current single pc streaming rig has a i7-8700 (non-k) and a 2070 super, 16gb of ram.

Thanks so much for your help :)
