    I've been wondering this lately. I am upgrading from my 15 y/o 1080P 60hz monitor to a 1440P 144hz monitor as soon as the brown truck arrives this afternoon. When I post pictures, I usually crop the unimportant stuff off and resize them to under 1080P and 250KB for easy loading/viewing. It occurred to me that those that have higher resolution monitors might see a much smaller picture than I do. I expect I am going to scale my desktop up so that my icons are the normal size, and the pictures on my screen will appear to be the same size as they used to be on the lower resolution monitor.

    Bourgeois! :rolleyes:

    Will that handle 1440p at 144? That's some heavy lifting.

    No, won't max it out, but it'll probably do 80-100 depending on graphic settings. I've got some head room so the next time I upgrade, the monitor will keep up. I had my last monitor for about 12-15 years.

    It's an old one at the moment, an AMD FX-8350. It's probably choking on what that card is trying to feed it. I'm waiting for AMD to release the Zen 3 processors in the early summer. I'm building a new rig then.

    No kidding, an FX-8350 with a 1080. No interest in a new Intel CPU?

    I have an i5-6500. Good enough for now and a good placeholder for a 770oK maybe in the summer.

    Intel is kinda proud of their offerings. I've always gone with the budget underdog. I always had Radeon GPUs until this latest adventure with Nvidia. Picked up the 1080 last summer to replace an old old old HD4770. I might have gone Intel as well but with the Zen line, AMD finally put out something competitive. I'm going with the rumored 3850X, the 16 core 32 thread 5.1ghz CPU if that rumor pans out and the reviewers give a thumbs up. We shall see what they actually release.

    IPS ... nice monitor. I wish they had IPS high refresh rate monitors that didn't require a 2nd mortgage.
