I currently game at 1920x1080 on a 21.5 inch monitor. Now I own a RTX 2800 Super. I can't stand the blur from AA and the only way I've ever dealt with jaggies is by looking forward to the next higher up resolution.

Tested 2k and 4k resolutions using nvidia DSR factors and 4k is gorgous but stuttery, 2k seems to be able to consistently not go BELOW 60fps, but.... it looks like jaggie hell. 4k looks like jaggie-be-gone-forever to my eyes.

2k testing looks even more jaggie hell than 1080. Now is that because I'm viewing 2k non natively?

I am trying to settle on a good 24 inch 1440p monitor because to my mind I think "Why go 1440p when a 27" monitor will just highlight the jaggies and kind of just put me back at square one with my jaggie issue. Isn't a bigger monitor just cancelling out the benefits of a resolution increase?"

Or is there something else I'm not taking into account? Thank you, this is driving me insane and I can't make a choice.

No matter what dsr is set to, you are looking at 1080p unless you have a different monitor. AA should not be blurring unless it's fxaa. Dsr would be doing similar to any good aa but dsr adds blur.

If you still want a new monitor, there are not many 24" 1440p, and even less good ones for gaming. 27" 1440p is nearly the same dpi as 1080p 21.5" so that won't help at all. There isn't an appreciable difference for AA purposes of higher dpi unless you get 4k.

Thanks for the feedback. Starting to feel like my only two options are go to a 4k monitor and live with 50 to 60fps or stay with 1080p and enjoy 144 frames a second.

Edit: What about this one? I can't seem to find a good review on it (backlight bleed fears). 1440p, 75hz, IPS, 1ms, 23.8 inches

And this one seems to be almost the same except 144hz, but for a whopping 200 bucks more??
