I am looking at upgrading my monitor, but was curious to see what my system may be able to handle. I currently have an Asus 60 hz monitor, so I was looking to upgrade to either a higher resolution monitor or a higher refresh rate monitor. Any sugggestions or help is greatly appreciated. Most days I play Final Fantasy 14 and/or Warframe. Not really into the competitive scene though.

CPU: Intel I7-6700K
GPU: Asus ROG GTX 1070 Strix
Ram: 32 GB

what are you currently using and what type of fps are you achieving?

with lower performing games like FF14 you should be able to maintain ~90fps @ 1080p with a mix of good in-game settings.
probably a little over 60fps @ 1440p.

with newer AAA games probably ~60fps @ 1080p with a mix of mid-high settings and most extra features disabled.
probably near 60fps, possibly a bit under, @ 1440p with lowest settings.

but you could go ahead and upgrade to a better display with intentions to continue to upgrade the rest of the system over time.
you can still always set games to a lower resolution than native if you have trouble getting good fps.

I am currently using a Asus VS247H- 1080p monitor 60 hz.
While running FF14 it says I am currently getting almost 120 fps, 80 in a well populated city.
Running Warframe I seem to be getting around 100 fps in a populated map.

if you're planning on keeping this same setup for the next couple years at least;
i would go for a nice 120Hz 1080p IPS,
with a fast response time (≤2ms),
and high DCI-P3 % (≥98%).

others prefer VA panels to IPS but i have never had a good experience with them.
you may want to do a bit of research into panel types to see if one appeals to you more than the other.

if you're planning on upgrading the CPU & GPU anytime soon then you may want to go ahead and base this purchase on anticipating that upgrade with a higher resolution, maybe HDR, etc.
