the question is when. i just bought 8700+1080 but i dont know if i should return it and wait for next gen. btw is 1080 good to play on 2k for 144hz? i feel it might be not power enoughotakuz wrote: ↑ Sigh ... thats a good monitor for those who can drive those frames and pixels but i my 580gtx wont do it and video cards are still hella expensive. i paid almost the same for my fell U2715H
I have a feeling they are going to release the new 4k 144hz monitor at the same time with the new Nvidia 20xx series

Well.. yeah 1080 is good enough for 2k . but like others said depend on which game and what setting. but you will be ok for most game .... i play LOL in 2k max settings and bf3 in 2k low medium and its ok with a gtx 580. i still believe 2k 144hz 27" is the sweet spot for gaming and its IPS !

Don't listen to these people here who are commenting yet probably never used a panel like this.

I don't own this exact monitor, but I own the asus mg279q which is the same panel. A 1080 will be plenty powerful to drive this monitor. You don't have to hit 144hz to get most of the benefits from it. I've found the ideal FPS to shoot for to be around 90fps. Which is a 50% increase over the standard 60hz. After that the improvements from higher frames are quite as noticeable, but still good.
Your 1080 should easily be able to drive most titles to at least 90fps. I currently only run a 970 with a good overclock, and dial some settings back to hit around 90fps. A 1080 is far more powerful and will be able to hit 90fps at 1440p with max settings on most titles.
Even for desktop/productivity use, 1440p/144hz is a big improvement, the extra screen real estate and smoothness of mouse movement is really nice. Going back to 1080p/60hz feels so cramped and jittery.
Don't let thinking a 1080 is not enough for 1440p/144hz when it is, and the monitor will probably last you for quite some time, as monitor tech has been moving very slowly, we are very far off from high refresh 4k and 8-bit panels. 27"1440p144hzIPS panels have been the sweet spot for several years, and likely will for several more. You're wasting the performance of your 1080 to run 1080p/60hz.
