I have a week with my new built and i want to upgrade my 1080p 60mhz monitor, but i want to know if i should stay on 1440p or i could play at 4K at least 60mhz.

My system:
  • Ryzen 5 3600 with Corsair ICue H100i RGB Pro XT with 2 Artic Bionix fan P120
  • RX 5700 XT Power Color 8GB
  • GSkill 16GB (2x8 3000mhz)
  • MOBO ASRock Steel Legend B450
  • PSU Phanteks AMP 80Plus Gold 750w
  • Case Phanteks Evolv mATX tempered glass with 3 Artics Bionix F140 (1 exh 2 in)
  • SSD Kingston A400
The games i play more are Forza Horizon / Motorsport and Call of Duty

It really depends on the games you play and what graphics settings you use.

Refer to this test on a 5700 XT. There are several games that will not yield anywhere near 60 FPS. Max setting s are used unless specified otherwise. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-radeon-rx-5700-xt/

A lot of popular games at max settings/4K like Ace Combat 7, Anno 1800, AC Odyssey, Darksiders 3, Devil May Cry 5, Hitman 2, Metro Exodus, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Monster Hunter World, Rage 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and The Witcher 3 will ave about 30-50 FPS, and most are less than 45.

You really need a high end card like the 2080 Ti if you want to get at least 60 FPS at max settings with a 4K res. Even then there are rare exceptions like Red Dead Redemption 2, which at best has to be limited to Med/High settings to ave 60 FPS or more at 4K on a 2080 Ti. https://www.pcgamesn.com/red-dead-redemption-2/pc-performance-analysis

This video shows a 5700 XT playing RDR 2 at 4K on max settings, and even with a 3700X, it ave only 20 FPS.

That said, Forza shouldn't be a problem with a 5700 XT at 4K, but CoD Modern Warfare 2019 dips to a 30s-40s ave in places and singleplayer may be even worse.

I like to play on ultra setting.

If thats the case, i will prefer to buy a 2K monitor with 144mhz and freesync

Thanks
