Just a view from the other side of the fence;

I was fine with 1080p/60Hz and my GTX 950 did that fine on most games. I foolishly bought the 1080ti FE when it came out, then had to upgrade my PSU, then I figured, well, might as well get a 4k monitor. And yes, 4k gaming is awesome, but was it worth the $1200 price tag when 1080p/60Hz was just fine? Probably not. I don't have any regrets, but for those of you waiting, you're not really missing out. Besides, 4k is one of those things that you really only notice at first before you become accustomed to it; like going to see a 3D movie. Awesome at first, but by about 10 minutes in, you're immersed and have forgotten it was even 3D.

I'm on a 60hz monitor but i have it overclocked to 79hz. 60hz feels really choppy, but 79hz feels great.

I was planning on getting 144hz TN before buying this monitor. It was only $30 for IPS 1080p. You can't get this quality monitor for $30 even today.

I wish I could be like some of you and be patient, but I've had like 6 monitors since 2011, lol. Currently my PC is connected to two different 4K displays(LG 32" 4k monitor and 49" Samsung KS8500) along with an LG 2560x1080 144hz monitor.

I'd have to upgrade my GPU too if I wanted to upgrade my monitor specs (1920x1080@75hz), so no thank you.

I don't understand how people can keep the same monitor for 5 years like one user in here mentioned. I replace every 1 - 1.5 year(s). Going beyond that is like not changing a bulb that's starting to dim. Not healthy at all.

I see no reason to upgrade beyond 1080p/60fps. I actually got two new 1080p 60Hz IPS displays this Christmas.

Money is not a factor in this.

I replaced 2 8 year old 1080p/60Hz IPS displays.

I also still use DVI/HDMI as I don't have any Dispaly Port Cables, or Display Port compatibile monitors.

The thing about monitors is 'you don't know what you don't know'. If you've only ever game on 1080p 60hz, then that probably looks great to you.

But, once you go to 1440p or 4k 144hz, you can't go back

I upgraded from 720p to 1080p last year, I am not upgrading again for awhile. Going from a plasma broadcast monitor to a monitor was a travesty, but games arent made for 1366x720 anymore (in game menus end up taking up the entire screen).
