A 1060 will struggle to do either with out lowering graphics settings a shit load (aka what's the point)

1080p 60Hz or 1440p 60hz. As cool as 144hz is I have no troubles not using it in games and my scores are the same. It will force a higher level of GPU.

Actually the biggest benefit of high Hz is it is easier on your eyes doing mundane shit. That I appreciate the most.

yea decided to go down the 1440p route.

I'm not sure why people say that 1060 6gb will struggle at 1440? My GTX 970 4GB did fine with CSGO and Dota2...

1060 6bg will do bf1 at 1440p around 60fps (or above) at high settings, even ultra settings according to the youtube vids

Maybe get yourself a good wireless gamepad too, so you don't miss some of the PS4 action

install something like witcher 3 or mass effect andromeda or any newer more demanding game and see how it goes. if all your playing are two source engine games you might as well have just stuck with the 970. might just be me but i couldn't call 35fps playable anymore

Only reason I gave up my 970(and entire PC) was because I made the move to Australia from NZ lol.


But yea pretty much exclusively play CSGO and Dota2 and the odd BF1 its just I have an issue with dealing with anything other than 60FPS+ on those 2 games

Wow, didn't realise there was so much diff going from the 980 to the 1080, which is what I've done recently. Huge.

What size screen?
If 27" go no lower that 1440p
For a 24" 1080p is okay
