My specs:

Ryzen 1600 @ 3.6 X370

Corsair DDR4 stable @ 2933MHz

Gigabyte 1080 Ti Aorus, working on stock settings



I play mostly CoD warzone at the moment. I believe my CPU is a bottleneck in 1080p. I get 130-ish FPS in 1080p at medium/low graphics settings on a Warzone map on average. Lowest dips I've noticed were just above 100 FPS, while peaks went over 200 FPS.



I tried running game at same settings with the DSR on to simulate 1440p. At 1.76 factor I have around 100 FPS average, but at this point I'm able to utilize more of my GPU. Dips were at 85+ FPS and game felt smooth.



I would really want to be more competitive at this game and I feel my current 75HZ 1080p IPS 24" monitor is holding me back quite a bit.



Would I notice smoother game play if I'd get g-sync compatible monitor since my average FPS is somewhere bewteeen 120 -130? (I was thinking to get 27" 1080p 144Hz TN monitor just for Warzone and as my secondary display.) If I go down this route, I believe I may upgrade CPU to Ryzen 3600 few months later.



On the other hand, would you personally go for 1440p 144Hz monitor instead? Is the 1080 Ti still a viable option for this? If I go 1440p would this hinder being competitive in WZ with 100 FPs avg?



Thanks!

Personally, 1440p is a good rez for 27". With no antialiasing applied, it'll boost fps a bit more whilst still looking good.

But competitively, that's hard to say without first hand experience between one or the other in Warzone. 1080p 'can' still look good on 1440p panel though so it's possible you won't be bothered by running a non native resolution and have best of both worlds.
