    I dont quite agree, Some systems *(like the ps5) do not support 1440p native res on a monitor, so having a hdmi2.1 set with 4k support is a good way to future proof.

    Not relevant in this case though. He isn't looking at HDMI 2.1 and was limited to basically the 3 monitors he mentioned only.

    Earlier up in the thread we did advise to wait it out for an HDMI 2.1 compliant 4k monitor, but that was not an option.

    Problem is we don't have the monitors that supports all the features we want. The best bet is to go for a 48 CX OLED if you can find one. Sadly they are rare and more expensive than the 55". As for monitor size you really don't want to go for anything more than a 27" because it gets too big depending on where you sit. I know its a point of contention but when I moved from 23" to 27" it was jarring at first but with going from 1080p to 1440p I pretty much got the same pixel count so it didnt really affect the overall quality. Going from 27" to ultrawide 34" also wasn't such a big deal because it still retained the high of the 27".

    I feel we are in that odd realm on PC gaming where 1440p provides just enough detail without turning games into a sloggish experience while 4k is still somewhat demanding.
