My last console was probably something like Sega mega drive or something similar many many years a go and it was PC gaming for me all this time.

I am at a point where i feel like PC gaming is not what it used to be and i would like to experience all the exclusives on the PlayStation platform like the Last of Us and Horizon Zero Dawn, and may more games that will be released this year and beyond.

I'm a graphics guy and my current set up is a I7, 32GB RAM, 500GB SSD, GTX1080 and 3440x1440 monitor which will be my primary console monitor.
i'm OK with having black bars on the sides of the screen but i'm not sure what is the best console for me, is the PS4 or the PRO, i know that PRO can be very versatile and you can change 1080p @ 60hz or 4K @ 30 in some cases but if i have a 1440p screen how would that work. is the support for the 1080p and 4k modes is coded into all the games or this is per game bases?

Visual quality is important as i'm coming from a decent PC and i was always sensitive to jagged edges and any graphical imperfections however i can enjoy old games like F.E.A.R for example like i'm playing again right now.

Thanks to everyone who helps me out.

Apologies for any grammatical errors, English is not my first or second language

Go for Pro. PS4 is only 1080p. Pro is 4k gaming device. Go for it if you have a 4k tv and want to have a 4k experience. Otherwise, PS4 is fine too.

PS: If you're going for a PS4 version, avoid getting a slim version, heat problems.
