Hey all,

I just finished building my first PC and am looking for a new monitor to get the maximum out of it. I play games like Battlefield 5, WoW, ( Got The Division 2 and Metro Exodus game keys from my CPU and GPU purchase ). I want the monitor to have 1 MS response time, 144 Hz and to be 27 inch.

Now my question is; 1080P or 1440P? This is the Build I am using:

So looking at the build my suggestion would be 1080p monitor.

Reason being is that right now you can find a plethora of low cost, good quality 1080p screens. Having a 1ms requirement isn't going to be hard to fulfill.

Plus pushing for 1440p may put you in a position for having to compromise on quality if you're looking to stay wallet friendly, and I'm willing to bet that budget is important to you.

1080p with an MSI mag24c because you could get stable 144hz at 1080p, or you could have noisy framerates at 1440p, and they are a lot more expensive, and a 2070 would be able to completely do 1440p at 144hz at high settings.
