    Is it worth it switching from 1080p to 1440p? Is there any visual difference?

    The post is pretty much self expalanatory.

    My set up:

    Sapphire Radeon R9 390X 8GB GDDR5 (Triple Fan)
    i5 4690k 3.5 GHz
    MSI Z97 mobo
    Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 2133 MHz RAM
    1x WD Blue 1 TB
    1x Samsung Evo 250GB SSD
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo cooler
    2x Corsair 120mm case fans
    2x 1080p 60 Hz monitor

    When gaming on 1080p ultra, I normally get at least 40 FPS depending on the optimization of the game, and my temperature is normally at about 35 Celsius. Should I switch to 1440p to get more out of my card, or stay at 1080p? I'm not planning to upgrade for 4k anytime soon but gave 1440p a thought

    meh imo 1080>1440, but maybe worth it for 4k because thats a big upgrade.

    but for you since u dont want to, nah. I would stay with 1080. depending on how much expendable income you have.

    but hey its not my call.

    Ehh, I would only prefer the 1080p because there is a slight difference, but if you had the disposable income then you should do it. Otherwise stay with the 40FPS on ultra in 1080p.

    Yeah, I'll stick to 1080p. I get 40FPS on seriously unoptimized games like Just Cause 3 or Fallout 4 (during first week) Assassin's Creed: Rogue, but I get up to more than 100 FPS on 2015 AAAA+ games such as The Witcher 3, MGS V and more

    I would say stick with 1080p because thats high end regular but some games are visually different for 1440p

    just stick with 1080p ultra with that setup. you should be getting at least 60fps@Ultra1080 on those specs and temps should be way higher than 35oC lol

    I'd take the big jump to 4k. It's like 100€ more, and you can play games in HD without scaling because its HD squared.

    Honestly, I see little to no difference from 1080 to 1440. If your card can handle 1440, go for it. But personally there is no reason to try and push it if it doesn't run well. 1080 is more than sufficient imo.
