Got a new monitor recently and I just found out that it can run at 75 Hz, but I wasn't sure if that was worth lowering the resolution for. What do you think? --- My movie and gaming room: http://imgur.com/a/IjWr1 My pets: http://imgur.com/a/P9VGU

Slightly higher refresh rate doesn't begin to make up for that much of a resolution drop --- If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

if the second isnt 120hz i wouldn't bother, and either way i'd personally still pick the higher resolution --- i7 3820 / Corsair H80i | Asus Sabertooth X79 | 2x GTX 680 4GB | 16GB Corsair Vengeance LP | 2x 600GB Raptor / 2x 1TB WD RE3 | Corsair HX1000w | Silverstone RV01

2560 x 1440 @ 60Hz refresh rate
Run it at it's native resolution. That extra 15 FPS won't be mind-blowing. That's if you even notice it...

What about 2560x1080 at 67.5 Hz?
Actually 2560x1440 on a 27" screen reduced to 2560x1080 would probably look too small. Never mind. --- http://gifsoup.com/webroot/animatedgifs/55488_o.gif http://www.d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y.com/

I'd take the higher resolution unless I was playing a FPS where having a higher framerate gave me some kind of advantage....and even then if I wasn't playing it super competitively I might not care and would still opt for the higher resolution. I can't imagine having 75hz over 60 being a big deal.
Like I discovered that I could overclock my monitor to 72hz but that wasn't worth the effort (and the colors looked worse too). --- http://raptr.com/badge/arleas/uc.png http://i.imgur.com/G7PNnZ8.gif
