I game at 1080p and would rather be able to hit 144fps in the majority of my game library than go to 1440p and struggle.1080p is still stunning at 27". The 1440p crap is exactly that, crap.

1440p isn't crap. That, just if you think about it, isn't true. 1080p is great don't get me wrong especially running at max details for gaming, 1440p is better. And it's no longer impossible to run a lot (not all I'll attest) games at even 144hz at that res. On the whole, this is a good monitor

44% off? Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t this just the standard price for this model?

There’s so many variations of these predator screens I might be wrong but as it’s the 1080p model I don’t think I am. I’ve been looking at a few of these lately but they seem to get serious erratic results from the panels.

Hey 1nsomniac, I'm only going by what Overclockers list as their RRP of this product. I have to agree with you though, there are so many of these damned Predator monitors of varying spec!

Sorry ElderRat...

Imo if you're going to game at 1080p then a 24" monitor is perfect, and 1440p for 27".

Especially if you're paying the extra and forking out for g-sync.

If you want a 1440p 24' this is a better buy nrgit.biz/pro…tor

Also comes with a 3yr warranty.

The 27 is out of stock but is £419

Wasn't saying I had that view, just the echo chamber here says you must think 1080p at 27inch is too low PPI. It's different strokes for different folks. I run an x34a so trust me, 1080p is long behind me. Just had to get in there before people started chiming up

What are you running?
It sounds like it's time to upgrade your GPU.
You'll hit 144/1440 easily.

A GTX 1080 would be a good pick. Black Friday is right around the corner

I got 1070 with PG278Q 144hz 144hz monitor and my GPU struggle to run FPS games I think if ur into FPS games then 1080p with 144hz is gud, I heard even 1080 struggle to run @ 1440p

No worries mate. It's definitely not too low of a PPI but it also depends on how close you sit to the screen as well.

Don't want people to make the same mistake I did!

Got the same monitor, there's nothing wrong with 1080p on a 27inch screen. Not everybody sits at their computer to count pixels. Speaking of pixels though, one issues I've had with it is a recurring stuck pixel, so I really don't recommend buying since stuck pixels are really annoying to deal with.

Then keep crying about resolution and frame rate.

A 1080 is not £600
More like £450 which should turn into a £200 upgrade once you sell the 980 Ti.

It'd be even less if you get one in the sale and sell the Destiny code.

I'm not crying

Someone says 27" 1080p and the fucking Muppets start throwing crap around about needing 1440p at that size. It's garbage and one of those Elitist comments that some cool kid on a forum once said, and all the little brown nosers follow suit. 1080p is absolutely fine at 27" and means an average card is capable of 144fps in more games at high settings.

On a 27" monitor 1440p is considered the sweet spot and the minimum for most.

I've had 27" monitors in the past at both 1080p and 1440p. I found that individual pixels were visible at 1080p.

It's all a moot point really as you can run a 1440p monitor at a lower resolution so the higher res screen is the clear choice.

The clue as to why you're being silly here is in your own post...

"I found" --> your experience does not line up with everyone else's. You don't need to put people down to back up your own opinion either calling it the clear choice as even your own explanation of why it is better is critically flawed (running downscaled to 1080p with a 1440p monitor does not have perfect scaling and objectively will look worse than a straight 1080p monitor). And this is coming from someone who yet again can't stand using 1080p monitors... Take a moment to reflect

It's amazing how people can get this wound up over a rather good judging from the heat deal.

Most would agree that 27" is too large for 1080p. PPI is too low. It's mentioned time and time again on threads everywhere, there's gotta be a reason for that and I've experienced it first hand so I know they're not just being 'elitist'.

Interpolation is an issue but nowhere near as bad as you'd imagine.
If given a choice between a 27" 1080p monitor running 1080p or a 27" 1440p monitor running 1080p with the option of upping that to 1440p in some titles/in future/productivity I know which one I'd pick.

I try not to be mean in my comments but if people wanna make silly initial arguments then it sometimes ends up that way unfortunately whether or not it was intended.

Anyway good deal

Nah. Either you are being bottlenecked by your CPU, or you have AA set on more than 2x (which isn't needed at 1440p) or other silly settings that such as TressFX or PhysX on high, which can knock 30-40 fps off some games. For example, I played Doom at 1440p with a 1070 and i7-4790K at 100-144 fps (~135 average) and COD: Advanced Warfare at 165fps, locked (except for occassional "dips" to 130fps).

980Ti to 1080 will give a ~15% boost in framerate i.e. 60 fps to 69 fps...for £450?! Or, turn down settings from ultra to very high, lower AA, or some other GPU hog and you'll easily be able to get more than a 15% fps boost, for free for an iimperceivable difference in image quality on moving scenes.

I agree that 1080p on 27" is too pixelated, particularly noticeable outside of games during graphics and word processing use. 1080p at 27" is 2010 spec. In my experience, I find 1080p fine up to 24". The statement "Many 27" monitors have native resolutions of 2560x1440 and hence operate at 1440p."... is even found on the "1080p" wikipedia entry!
