1080p 240hz or 1440p 144hz?

I am getting a new PC and with it I want to upgrade from my current 1080p 60hz monitor to a better 1080p 240hz or 1440p 144hz monitor but I don't know which would be better. I know a decent amount about monitors but I was thinking, more frames or a nicer picture. My new PC will have a 2070 super and if you want to make a suggestion, I game in light conditions so brightness isn't too major and I have a VESA monitor mount so a VESA monitor would be ideal.

To be honest, that GPU won't drive a 1080p 240Hz monitor to it's full potential anyway...you'd need a 2080 Super minimum. You would be much better off going for a 1440p 144Hz monitor...the quality is so much better. If you provide a budget and maximum size the monitor can be, then one of us can probably recommend one (or several).

Also might be worth having a look through the monitor guide for some ideas (little out-of-date as some models have been superceded but good for an idea):

Ok @Nursemorph I'll go for a 1440p 144hz monitor. I was looking at an Acer Nitro VG270UPbmiipx (is it any good or should I look in a different direction). I also will take some time too look through this guide though. Thanks!

I have looked in the guide but I can't seem to find anything which suits my needs.
My budget is £330 give or take £10 and the max size would be 29" as I don't want an ultrawide but I also don't want a smaller 24" monitor. 27" would be ideal probably and VESA would be nice as well.

The Acer seems decent enough..I don't know much about it but the reviews seem good. Another choice may be something like this:

ASUS TUF Monitor

There's also a Samsung, though not sure about the VESA as it's 75x75 rather than 100x100:

Samsung Monitor

Most monitors seem to have VESA mounts that I have seen

I had the same dilemma when I got my new laptop and decided to settle on 1440p for the extra pixels. I've just ordered this Dell for £340 delivered (there are some discount codes floating around).


With the 32in screen size you will have the similar pixel density as a 1080p 27in monitor. Dell also has a 3yr warranty and Paypal 12mth 0% interest payment as well.
