Help Choosing Monitor for GTX 1070

I plan on building a computer soon and I need to know what monitor to pair with my 1070. I will frequently game on the computer.

1080p 144hz or 1440p 144hz is what I have been looking at. I want my rig to last for a couple of years and not suffer frame drops in newer games at 1440p. Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you.

  1. also depends what size you want

    my opinion up to 24 inch 1080p

    over 24 inch 1440p
  2. You want a 1440p 144hz with gsync. This is the one I would get.

  3. other things to consider

    tn panel or ips tn usually has faster response times but ips has far better colour and viewing angles though to me thats irrelevant since usually you are sat

    square in front of a monitor any way

    and most important consideration is how much you can spend

    guys, the G-sync monitors you are recommending are way too expensive.
    To the OP: what is your budget for the monitor?


    500 max but a little over will not hurt. I was already looking at the Dell s2716dg, but I am worried of how will it will run games down the road since it is 1440p.

    the Dell is a great deal on a 1440p. The 1070 is overkill on 1080p.
  8. the Dell is the cheapest Gsync 1440p/144Hz if you don't mind the TN panel.

    otherwise the rest are very expensive compared to it.

    and YES the GTX1070 belongs with a 1440p/144Hz monitor.

    the GTX 1070 is not capable of producing 144 fps on the highest settings @1440p. 1080p@144Hz is a better option.


    I play WoW, Overwatch and BF1 all 90-144FPS. everything maxed out.
  10. 1440p will run fine for games right now, but in the future I know it will not be able to play every game at max settings. I honestly don't know what to get. If anyone is curious, here is the rest of my planned computer: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/WqdYd6
  11. I suggest the 1440p because in a year or 2 the cheapest video card will be overkill for 1080p. Right now the 1050ti can run most games well on 1080p long as the CPU is good.
  12. you dense mo....
    even 2-way SLI GTX1080 won't last forever, the monitor usually outlasts at least 2 builds. no matter at what resolution you play you would want to change your card 3-4 years anyways. there is no such thing as future proofing a gaming PC.

    my setup is in my signature. i5-6600K @4.6 Ghz

    Can you recommend a good 1080p@144hz monitor?
  14. A 1070 will be just fine with a 1440p 144hz monitor. Sure in a year or two you might have to lower a couple settings but thats usually not the end of the world.
  15. 80fps on a 144hz monitor still imho looks better than 80fps on a 60hz monitor. 60fps looks just fine on a 144hz monitor aswell. Ive been using a 144Hz monitor for 3 years. Just because its a 144Hz doest mean you always absolutely have to run 100 plus fps.
  16. If you get big fps swings it can stutter a bit, but thats true of any non frame syncing monitor.
    I usually dont see problems till the fps exceeds the refresh rate, then in some games I'll see screen tearing.
    Gysnc and freesync will smooth it out even more as they adjust the refresh rate to match the fps. However neither of those work if pushing fps over the max refresh rate.
  17. I have chosen two monitors:

    AOC G2460PG or Asus VG248QE

    Any others and feedback would be appreciated.
  18. Best answer
    I have had an VG248QE for 3 years and been happy with it, but Gsync wasn't around then. Between those 2 I'd go for the gsync monitor.
