    2560x1440 at 144hz with Freesync.

    I love everything about it coming from 1080p 60hz. I believe this is the current sweet-spot and I'm pleasantly surprised how well my 290x copes with it.

    2560x1600 (on a nearly ten year old Dell 3007WFP) with an AMD HD7750 and a Core 2 Duo.

    It plays Factorio great but I'm going to have to upgrade for the next mass effect.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1920x1080 or triple that + bezel compensation, which means about 5940x1080 - depends on a game. Eyefinity is great, but only in certain games - sometimes the extra field of view is just useless. Like in Witcher 3, where most of the time these extra screens only show trees and other forest plants or cave's walls.

    Online FPSes, on the other hand, look super cool, and in some of them superwide resolution can be an advantage.

    1680x1050. My old Fujitsu 22" screen is still going strong after nearly 8 years. I would love to upgrade to a super widescreen as games look beautiful on them.

    It's on my 9 year old Dell 2407wfp-HC, which I thought was quite expensive back then (+£400), but considering it's lasted 9 years and had a range of inputs (good for my PS3 and Xbox 360 back then), it's actually bit of a bargin.
    Almost the same here, just the 2408 model

    Was expensive when i brought it, but considering how long i've had it, it was worth every penny IMHO

    I have a second 1080p (22") cheap monitor for multi-monitor windows use, but i only use a single screen for gaming.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    2560x1440 but for demanding games I'm downgrading to a 1080 monitor (Keeping the 1440p monitor) because my 970 just can't keep up with the settings I want to play at and at 1440p. The 970 certainly isn't a 1440p gpu

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1680x1050 on a Samsung something or other from years ago, with a 4890, also from years ago (obvs). Don't game enough any more to justify an upgrade.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    I'm a bit surprised I'm the only one running my resolution... (2048x1152)

    I expected at least one other.
