Hi guys,

I'm fairly new here and posted only 1 time before and I've been reading alot of posts and learned that 4k can downscale to 1080p due to correct ratios and 1440p cannot do as good of a job,
I am trying to decide to buy the monitor that would be the most practical to use with a kind of 'all in one' feel.

So simply put I was wondering if a 4k monitor could possibly be downscaled to 1080p and have a refresh rate of 144 or higher? Or is it really just best to have a 1440p 144hz monitor?

EDIT: I did not post only 1 time before haha but still relative

Thanks for responding man, I was hoping for a 5700xt and I was already sold on 1440p, the reason I'm asking about the 4k monitor is that perhaps there is something obvious I am missing out like, a 4k monitor can do everything a 1440p 144hz one can? so I could watch 4k videos as well as play games on 1440p 144hz or any native scalable resolution like 1080p or 2160p?
1440p 144Hz. You're also going to need a GPU to drive that display. Graphically intensive tasks will demand a beefy GPU as opposed to a task needed for watching YouTube videos at 4K.
