This poll is now closed.
Forget about the driven-up hardware prices for a second, what is your planned upgrade path in the near future for your display?

1080p 60Hz still looks good to me, iam sure 4k looks amazing but iam a simple man with simple tastes i could buy a 4k monitor if i wanted but whats the point my 1080p monitor still works perfectly fine, if and when my current monitor ever goes out i might think about upgrading to a higher resolution but right now its good enough as it is

I'll be building in six months to a year, so hopefully some high-refresh 4K displays are in the wild by that point.

I'm not 'dead broke', but I will keep using this 1080p 60Hz monitor until it conks out. I'm still in awe of it's picture quality tbh! My previous monitor was a 1280 x 1024 5:4 screen, and I only replaced that in 2013 because it conked out.

1080p 60hz is fine for me.
I'll probably get 4k whenever my current one breaks. I can afford it now, just seems like a waste of money since I'm happy with my current setup.

1440p is underrated, you get better framerates and awesome res. Not to mention you can't find good 4k monitors, most of them are s***.

Currently debating on pulling the trigger on moving up to 1440p. Got my eye on that ASUS 279Q g sync monitor.

Just not sure how performance would be. Currently I can max every game out with all bells and whistles at 1080p and maintain 60 fps. I kind of like that but I'd also like to experience some fast ass high fps rates too lol.

I'm on a GTX970 and a 24" 1080p monitor. Still works fine for everything I've thrown at it. Next gen NVIDIA I'll think about upgrading. Then I'll have to decide if I want to go 1440/144 or look at 4K. 4K seems to have some issues from an actual usability standpoint unless you get a fairly large screen. This needs to be for more than just gaming. 1440/144 may be the sweet spot for me and I can likely get by with an 1170 for that.

I'll worry about 4k when I can do 21:9 at 120+ fps at max settings. Until then I'll be fine as I am atm.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

I recently went from 1080-60 to 3440x1440-100-gsync. It was a massive upgrade, especially for Eve.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
