Question What happens to the refresh rate when I lower the resolution on the X315 MAX from 4k to 2K?

Dec 7, 2019
Hi I am considering getting either the X315 MAX or the F270i PRO.
My concerns are what happens to the refresh rate when I lower the resolution on the X315 MAX from 4k to 2K?
Personally I am leaning towards the X315 because it is curve and is 4K but I might lower to resolution to 2k. So would the refresh rate remain at 60Hz or increase?

Is the difference between IPS and VA panel great?
Curve better than Flat?
Can you tell the difference between 1ms response time and 5ms?
I heard that 27inch display is the optimal for 1440p gaming, is that true? What about 4k optimal size?
Does HDMI and DisplayPort connection make a difference in quality?

If there are monitors that has two modes, a 4k @ 60hz and a 2k @ 144hz, in the same monitor. Pls reccomend. This is my optimal monitor.

My intentions are to play witcher 3 and skyrim on the new PC I got recently. The specs are:
CPU+MB: AMD Ryen5 3600 + Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX (rev 1.0)
CPU COOLER: Be Quiet! Dark Rock 4 200WTDP

SSD: Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB NVMe Gen3x4 SSD
HDD: Seagate Barracuda-NEW 2TB
PSU: Corsair RM750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Chassis: Fractal Design Meshify C Blackout TG Casing
OS: Windows 10 unactivated
