Thanks for the replies. Im looking for the screen size that 1440 Res fits natively without any upscaling or anything like that. Also I will be sitting at a desk with the monitor directly in front of me. So would you say 27 inch is about right? I currently have a 43 inch 4k TV but my graphics card struggles at 2160 and I recon its not doing my eyes any favours sitting on top of it.
Thanks.

I've got a 27" 1440p monitor and it's impressive, despite being cheap.
I should have two but one developed a dead pixel line. Did I mention the units are cheap? :rolleyes:

Fine margins and everyone is different but I have concluded that 32" is just too large for 1440 at 3 feet (for me) - definition loss is too much. I wouldn't go larger than 28" personally.

I'm used to 4K though so I'm probably making an unfair comparison.

Just fyi, 27” looks the same size as 24” if you move it about 10cm farther away. Distance to screen is much more a factor than actual screen size

Will a 32' have a native resolution of 1440? I ask because before the 4k TV I had a 32' panel that was advertised as a 1080 gaming monitor, yet its native resolution was not 1080! So when I set the games resolution to 1080 the picture was terrible! I just want the image to be as crisp as possible.

32" for the immersion, but that's leaning back or sat up right on the chair as opposed to leaning over desk. Leaning over desk 27" preferable.

I went from 27" 1080 to 32" 1440.

No regrets.

Can i see the pixels? Dunno, i play pixelated games half the time. But lack of AA in newer titles is obvious if i turn those edging settings off. YMMV.
