Poll Whats better for PC gaming 4K or 1080HD (9 votes)

4K 44%
1080HD 56%

I've always wondered which one is better for gaming between 4K and 1080, specially for PC gaming. At the moment, i've always used my 4K TV for all gaming, both PC and console. However, while Console games work perfectly on my 4K TV, PC games however tend to have a slight issue when it comes to size from time to time.

I've not used an actual monitor since 2007 and it wasn't even a HD one either. So for me personally, i was wondering what would be better for 2020. I have a 1080TI card and was thinking about either having a few monitors or maybe just the 1 depending on how things go.

What are your thoughts and opinions with 4K and 1080 monitors for PC gaming.

1440p is the sweet spot.

If only the two were available ill take 1080p for the higher frame rate

Pretty much this. 4K is wasted....not only is the resolution needlessly high, but it hogs resources.

Would rather have an ultra-wide 1080p monitor than any anything-4k monitor.

1440p ("2K") at 144 hz refresh is ideal.
