    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    15,360 by 4,320; using two 8K Dell UltraSharp UP3218K monitors fed by two Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11GB Graphics Cards.

    Ahh! Just woke up from a nice dream. No I don't, I don't game, possible to dream of winning the Lottery though.

    On this sort of topic - this turned out to be an interesting watch from Linus...just ignore the almost clickbait video title (its a much more balanced video than you may expect from it's title!)

    2560 x 1440 27" and happy to stay with that for the next few years.

    I use a second little HD screen as well if I'm doing work, music etc, so that one might get replaced with a matching QHD eventually, but I don't plan to game across the pair.

    2560 x 1440 , monitor will run 4k @60hz, but my gfx just struggles too much for that, maybe 4k more when i upgrade the gfx card next year.

    1920×1080 / 60 Hz, GTX 1070 here. Ive experinced both HiDPI 4K and curved monitors, but none of these convinced me theres significant difference in game enjoyment when i take into account the price of an upgrade. So still rocking Full HD in 2019.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    3440 x 1440 @ 90Hz w/ GSync.

    Have a TV connected running 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz but very rarely use it for gaming, when I do it's only for short stints of casual games. I even bought a 2nd 1080 Ti to drive 4k60 but I just find 21:9 gives a far, far more immersive and enjoyable experience.

    3440 x 1440 primary monitor; 1080 x 1920 (portrait) secondary IPS monitor for productivity, documents, chat clients; 3840 x 2160 TV for media.

    Next upgrade for gaming will be a VR headset.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    Another for 1920×1080 @60 Hz

    Only 22". This was my first wide-screen and realised too late that I should have gone for at least 24" to avoid downsizing on height. (Yes I've had it for some time now)

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    I'm still stuck at 1920x1200... Still works, and at that resolution I can max all settings, so I guess I'm not in a super big hurry to upgrade to something more current... But one day I hope to get a nice ultrawide.
