    Ok guys, i am currently running a Ryzen 3600 @4.3ghz and a Evga 1070 graphics card. My current monitor is Samsung C27H58 1080p 27" 75hz Curved And i am very happy with it.

    I was considering upgrading to a 32" but understand this is a very bad idea at 1080p?. i was looking at the Samsung T55 32" As i think its pretty much the same as what i have but bigger.

    My other option was maybe the Gigabyte G32QC and break into the 4K realm, ive heard mixed reviews but price seems good. Never used a VA panel though.

    Not sure if my card will handle 4k and at what Hz?

    What would any of you boffins recommend?

    1080p is borderline acceptable on 27" already, to a point where many will tell you don't do it. Definitely do NOT do it on a 32" monitor. 1440p minimum at that point, ideally 4k.

    Also, I would personally stay away from VA, many will agree with me and many won't. Do some research into IPS and VA panels.

    If you're on a 1070, 1080p is the highest I would go. I bought my brother a 24" 1080p monitor last year because he has a 1070 and I felt like 1080p will get a lot more juice out of that GPU. I could've gone 27" but 24" looks much sharper so that's what he got.

    Yeah I figured that would be the case. I don't mind the 1080p. At 27". Got used to.it.

    I will be in the future updating the card. Not with these pathetic prices though.

    Go for only 1440p for 27" and above.

    Your GPU is not idea for 4K and 4K is not a good resolution for Windows 10 due to Windows 10 upscale will make Windows classic apps blur. Using 4K without upscale, you see nothing as everything will be very tiny.

    I

    At 1080p,dont go over 25 inch. Its the absolute max for 1080p having proper quality.

    Also dont forget,32 inch is Massive,you will be sitting right infront of it. Bigger is not always better { Pixel issues and eye strain ) . I think you will regret the choise going to 32inch.

    For 1080p i seriously suggest to try and stay between 25 - 27 inch ( 27 inch is alrdy too big for 1080 )

    Spend your money on a proper 25 inch model instead of around the same price you would be willing to spend on a 32inch model. You will probably have better quality overall aswell for your resolution.

    I have to suggest here that right proportion of resolution to screen size is also a subjective thing, I have bought 27" 1440P monitor as upgrade from 24" 1920x1200 and I must say, 24" on either 1200p or 1080p is better than 1440p on 27" - for me the text on it is too small. I have set in on default 100% scale but all the documents and websites I have on 150-200% zoom. I have no problems with my eyesight. It does not impact video viewing and games. As it was mentioned bigger screen or a resolution is not always better. I would avoid using 32" on a desk, it's too big to view from close proximity.
