I'm narrowing down my first PC build, which is based around the Ryzen 2600 and a GTX1070. I have everything more or less already chosen but I can't decide between those two types of monitors. For the longest time ever I had a crappy laptop so the upgrade will be massive regardless of what I choose.
A friend of mine briefly lent me an HP Gaming laptop and I can't remember if it had a 1440p screen or not, the entire Windows layout looked small and really sharp (I know 100% sure it was an IPS screen). I really liked that screen, so I'm buying no matter what an IPS screen,
I know that with 1440p you loose smoothness but gain image quality. I don't plan to play competitive (I mean, a CSGO match here and there but that's it), but I'm concerned about the future proofing of the system. I hate the world future proofing but I'd love to have the system more or less intact for two or three years and then upgrade it if necessary.
The CPU I'm going for is already strong enough and i believe is the sweetspot for gaming. Besides gaming I plan on doing music with VSTs and real instruments.
What do you reckon? Explain in detail if you can please.
