I've had a 24", 27", 32" and 38". The higher I go, the more overwhelming gaming is (especially fast paced stuff like FPS).

No matter how long I tried to get used to it (had it for months), I never could. Even at different orientations and distances. Something about not encapsulating the entire region throws me off.

For multitasking and movie watching, the higher dimensions were the sweetest though.

Currently sitting with a 24" 144hz VA and it's the best so far.

I went from 24 to 27 and 32". You'll get used to the 32" it took me a day or two.
I've had mine for about a year now, and it's still a bit overwhelming in FPS games. It's as if my eyes cant focus fast enough on the larger screen. That's it with the screen a bit more than an arm + hand length away. Its of course easier in the morning when my eyes are rested than at night.

Which screen is that?

Mecer K3G3R 31.5" 1440p.
IMO:
At 32" or more, you should be on 4K.
1440p should, max, be on 27".


Oh the one everyone was snapping up last year. I was looking at it, but it was sold out very quickly. They say it's a TN Panel though?
*puke* :p
Once you go IPS, you can never go back to TN :cool:
(I tried...and I just couldn't :) )

My Asus 27" was IPS, I'm using this LG which is VA and honestly there's not a lot of different, yes the Asus was better colour reproduction and it popped just a tad more.
Also 1440p on 32" is actually fine, and the hardware for 4k isn't easily obtainable.

For sure, but this isn't about VA. It's about IPS vs TN.

For me, 1440p on 32" falls into the same category as:

:D

With reasonable settings, even a 1080ti does 4K pretty well, so I don't know :)

A 1080ti is stil quite pricey. and also I've got no issues with 1440p on this monitor, far clearer than 1080p was on my old 27"

Any high end gpus there is quite high demand atm.

Not a single, rtx 2070 or rtx 2080 in stock at wootware. Means the 2nd hand market will carry a premium now

Yup, I noticed :-( my 1660ti now only pushes just passed 60fps on 1440p.

It's VA, but yes, it's a bit of a turd picture quality (relatively) and response time wise.
It' right next to my 4k 27" pre-calibrated monitor, and I'm still amazed by how much better that monitor is. You get used to it, and looking at it on its own it looks fine.

It does, but 90fps just feels SO much better than 55fps in gaming. I rather drop the resolution a bit and bump the detail to max than the other way around.
