Is there any point to run beyond 1080p and 60fps?

When 8k resolution(7680x4329) and 120fps are the norm, then you have my permission to stop.

I just got a bit of a chubby thinking about that.

the human eye is only capable of seeing 43fps, and anything above 1080p is indistinguishable.

The human eye can percieve up to about 85hz

1080p 60 should be the goal you're shooting for, at the very least. Planning on getting more than that, your costs go up rather quickly.

Yes, higher resolutions are great, and if you feel like buying a 120 hz monitor, that's also great. They're definite improvements, but with our current PC tech, it's more economical to spend $700 and get perfect 1080p performance than to aim higher and deal with buying a $600+ graphics card, a $300 processor, etc.

It's like looking at cars. I know, bad car analogies, but give it a thought. 1080p 60 is a solid $20,000 car. 1440p is closer to a Corvette. You spend 3 times as much for higher performance that doesn't mean much in day to day life. Higher performance doesn't make your games any more fun, but that's not to say that everyone should just play on lowest settings at 720p. Building a PC that's good enough for you is like striking a good middle ground between the two extremes.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

There's a pretty big difference between 1080p and 1440p. It's a 78% increase in pixels. Things should look a lot better at higher resolutions and higher refresh rates. It all depends on your eyes and budget though. If you've taken a look at 1440p vs 1080p (on similar sized screens) and legitimately can't tell the difference, then it's probably not for you and I would suggest you get your eyes checked because there is a clear difference. For fps, I've never had a display capable of over 60Hz so I can't comment on that, but I do like to hit 60fps if at all possible.

Price wise you can get 1440p monitors now for decent prices (around $350). However, you need significantly more powerful gpus to push that resolution with the same graphics settings for the same framerate that you currently play at.

Diminishing returns of the level of smoothness >60fps provides makes it quite irrelevant to all but the most fat walleted of enthusiasts.

Going higher then 1080p is good though, provided you have a big enough screen (or sit eye bleeding close to a smaller one) to see the difference. Honestly though, most people, because of the size/distance of their screen, are better off just supersampling for now.

When looking at these comparisons, were you using monitors that could display 120hz or >1080p? If not, that's why you saw no difference. It's like trying to play a high quality recording of a full orchestra through the crappy speakers on a phone.

I have a hard time seeing the difference between 720 and 1080. I have to look very closely. I literally cannot tell any difference at all between 1080 and 1440. You put the same image side by side on 2 different monitors, and I couldn't pick which was is 1440 by looking at it.

The ignorant only think they can't see over 60fps because their monitors don't display higher than that.
