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?

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

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.

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).
