I've been rocking a 24 inch 1080p screen from Asus for 2 years now. It looks good and works well for me. But there's always something better, and as such I'm thinking of pushing my current 1080p screen to my secondary screen (currently a 20" 900p display), and replacing it with a 1440p screen. I've got a couple questions. 1. How much will my performance suffer making this jump? I don't need maxed settings and 60FPS all the time, but I don't want to chop my framerate in half for a higher resolution either. See specs below for reference. Currently my most demanding game that I play is GTA V which I can run almost maxed out at 45-60+ FPS. I don't buy the latest games on a regular basis and most of the time don't even push my current hardware to the limits. 2. If I needed to run at 1080p on a 1440p display for performance reasons, does the upscaled picture look that bad? Images of course will not look as good when upscaled, but is it going to ruin it entirely? If needed, I could just toss the game on my 1080p screen to help this, but it would make having the 1440p display seemingly pointless. 3. What size should I be looking at? I remember thinking my 20" monitor that I originally used at 1600x900 was all I'd ever want or need, but when I jumped to a 24" display at 1080p, it was a whole new world for me. I don't mind having mismatched displays, but I don't want to sink money into a huge display either, but a bigger screen is always nice. 4. Is 1440p going to get "skipped" in the progression of resolutions? Obviously this is hard to answer, but I don't know how fast the adoption of 4K will be and don't want to spend money on a monitor if it's quickly replaced. 5. Anything else I should know about monitors? I don't know much really other than resolution and refresh rate. I don't have the money or horsepower to necessitate a 144Hz display. Same goes for 4K. Brand suggestions? I've tended to gravitate towards Asus recently with that monitor and this laptop I'm on now. I imagine I'll be looking at an upgrade to my CPU and GPU in the next year or two, so that's something to also think about.
