Hi guys,

Rig specs are in my sig, but will likely be upgrading to Ryzen 3700X and Radeon 5700 XT in the fall. I am wanting an upgrade for the Halo Master Chief Collection on PC, I also play league of legends. Currently gaming on a BenQ GL2450. I am looking to upgrade to Asus VP28UQG. I am I correct to assume that 4K with less than high settings will look better than 1080P with maxed settings? I am assuming the adaptive sync will make up for if I am not able to hit 60 FPS constantly? My budget is about $400 so I am open to other suggestions since I haven't ever gone higher than 1080P before.

Okay, maybe a more generic question will get more traction.

Upgrading from a 24” 60hz, would 1440p 27” 144hz or 4K 27” 60hz be a better experience?

Personally I'd like to find a good deal on a 27" 1440p 144Hz & IPS panel. They are few & far between, and pricy when you find one.
To add to the indecision, there's freesync & g-sync to toss in the mix too.

I was going to try to find a freesync monitor that is one of the g-sync compliant. Iirc nvidia has started supporting some freesync monitors.

Here's an Acer refurb. I don't about the g-sync compliant aspect of this one. The non-refurb is $693!

I will switch my focus to trying to find a good 1440p then from the 4K avenue I was on. Not buying until the fall so I got sometime.

Just need info to convince the wife to let me upgrade xD

I have a 1440p 60Hz 27" IPS monitor for my "Lightroom" PC. I can say 27" 1440p go together very well for a nice desktop IMHO.

If I am doing the math correctly the pixel density is still better than 24” 1080p. So should make for a cinematic experience which is what I am going for.
