    Currently 2560 x 1440. I have a 65" 4K TV but I'm waiting to upgrade my GTX 970 before I use that for gaming.

    Currently on a 24" 1920x1200.
    Planning on a 27" or 32" 2560x1440 144Hz as soon as I upgrade my dying GPU (probably within the next month).

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    Short story,
    Had 1440p 144hz TN and sold it to move to 4k 60hz TN, Wasn't happy with 60hz so bought another 1440p 165hz IPS.
    All is good for a long time, But I have my eye on that 4k 144hz HDR just not at the current ridiculous prices, Needs to be less than half the cost especially since it's only 27inches.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1200p (1920x1200) or 1680x1050 if my card can't keep up. I'll hopefully move to another 16:10 27-32in soon, 1600p I hope. Short/wide doesn't work for me unless on spreadsheets at work, so I'll be waiting a while I'd guess...ROFL. There are a few you can buy but they are NOT cheap (Dell 30in $1050 comes to mind)

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    Look at your comment section. Why test 4k? Look at steam survey, 125mil, <1.38% are using 4k. Again, why test 4k? It's ok to do that for certain specific stuff, but otherwise, you are wasting your time and not giving readers the best chance to know their hardware. Benchmark more games where we PLAY, not where you wish we'd play

    In some games with some cards it's the only way of hitting the cards limit easily, running most games at 1080p on a 2080ti isn't going to tell you much. Equally the 1.4% playing at that res are the target market for a money no object card like that.

    For cards further down the range I agree it's of little practical use but I suppose it is a common benchmark so you can see just how close it gets to the latest top of the range product.

    Currently 40"@4K going to downgrade to 32"2560x1440 4K is not all it's cracked up to be and dammed expensive to keep up.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    2560 x 1440. No plans to upgrade despite spending a lot of time recently looking at demo systems to establish whether it's worth it. If I did make any moves in that direction in the near future it'd be in terms of adding extra monitors either side.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    The overwhelming majority seem to be 2560 by 1440p

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1080p at the moment. I will be getting a freesync 1440p or 4k monitor this year though.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    2560x1440 usually, except if its a game I stream to my tablet then its just 1920x1080 because that is my tablets resolution and its a nuisance changing it every time I change between tablet and desktop.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1920 x 1080 @ 120 hz for the main monitor.

    I tend to use my oculus rift more nowadays rather than my monitor for games
