1440p is incredible

I just got a new 2560x1440 monitor today. I can't believe how much nicer it is than 1920x1080.

I'm guessing that the build quality of 1440p screens is generally just better due to there not being as many in existence as 1080p monitors..

How many people here run resolutions higher than 1080p/1200p? I'm running a 7950 at stock speeds. Is this likely to be sufficient for a while?

P.S. Also got my first mechanical keyboard today. Feels sooo much better than standard crap. It's crazy how much new peripherals can affect your experience using a PC.

I have a dell u2711 but my system is too weak to render at full resolution so I play at 1080p.

I use it more for work than gaming though.

Going from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440 really is a big change. I know I was blown away at first too. Advancing to 2560x1600 wasn't as big of a change, of course, but it's a nicer monitor than my 1440 one all around. Also, don't expect to max things with a single 7950. If you don't expect everything to be maxed you'll be ok, though.

I wasn't that blown away by it, but I do love it for desktop tho.. being able to run multiple browsers at the same time next to one another, etc.. quite nice

it's alright for gaming

AFAIK, all the 2560x monitors use IPS (and PLS) panels, which is probably why it's wowing you so much aside from the higher resolution. Most 1080p monitors use lower quality TN panels.

How much was it? Dell has a 28" 4K monitor coming out for under $1000.
