Should I run games at 1080p 60FPS+ or 1440p 40-50FPS with RX 480?

I just bought myself a MSI Gaming X RX 480 8GB. I read from different reviews that RX 480 can run max detail with 60FPS+ usually on 1080p but could only manage around 40-50FPS if 1440p.

For me I usually play some FPS like rainbow six, COD, and sometimes some RTS like company of heroes. Not a competitive player but more of a casual player.

I am wondering if the smoothness of 60FPS+ or the extra detail of 1440p would be more beneficial. For your information I got a 4K 60hz monitor Samsung U28E590D.

it does not matter whether its more beneficial or not,if your a casual game then you dont care about benefits,you care about the experience and the enjoyment right? in that case i would always go for 1080p over 40-50fps,you still notice the 10 fps differance. play on 60 for a few mins then limit it to 40 or 50 and decide what you like better(i can assure you, you will prefer 60 fps) :p

Thanks for the opinion. Actually I have never had rigs that could run 60FPS with max settings. So I would probably try the 1080p option :)
