    Question Is a 32 inch monitor with 1440p good to play WoW?

    Or do you think this is just too big? Should there be any concerns of playing with a 32 inch in WoW or in general?

    4K won‘t work with my GTX1060 the way I want the game to be I think. I want beautiful scenes, high fps and stunning colors.

    So would you recommend me a 32” Monitor then?

    So many variables it’s hard to give a good answer

    I wouldn't want to play on anything bigger than 27" personally. Even at 27", your eyes have to move so much to get from one side to the other unless you have it a longs ways from your face. But what would be the point of that when you can just have a smaller monitor closer? Just my opinion.

    This is nonsense. You want as big a display as you can because you can keep moving more noncritical UI elements out to the edges while keeping more of the actual playfield uninterrupted. Yes, there's a practical limit on how much of that you can usefully scan, but there's no end to the useful things you can do with more border space.

    I'm sorry to burst your bubble man.

    I would wait for BfA to be released.

    Legion is the most poorly optimized expansion Blizzard has ever released.

    When 7.0 released myself and thousands of other players were reporting insanely poor FPS in Suramar, Valsharah and some dungeons/raids. It was acknowledged by a Blue in the official Tech Support forums and they said a fix was on the way for 7.1 but it never came.

    I have a 27 inch 1440p 144hz gsync monitor. i7 4.1Ghz 4790 CPU, GTX1080 graphics card, 16gb ram etc. It's a $2500+ AUD PC(just for the tower).

    I can't max out WoW in 1440p. It's not possible. You have to turn anti aliasing down or turn some of the sliders down to 7 or lower to even maintain 60FPS.

    Suramar is the worst culprit. 30FPS roughly.


    Really dissapointing to be honest. Meanwhile I'm running Battlefront 2 at 1440p at 80+ frames. That has ALOT more shit going on and its multiplayer too so there's no excuse.

    Apparently WoW can't utilize all the cores in your CPU. They really need to fix it for BfA.

    If you're like 2 meters away, then yes. Otherwise, get 24" max.
    There was no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    LOL kid, it's my opinion and my preference and you're going to tell me it's nonsense? And no, you're quite wrong, I don't want as big a display I can. I know what I want and you're not going to convince me that I am wrong about my preference. I have the ability to use a 70" 4k screen in my office but I have zero desire to do so. Are you unfamiliar with the concept that different people like different things? If you want to have a huge screen and then just look at the very middle part, go right ahead, but that's not what I want to do. I won't even tell you that you're wrong for having a different preference than me because I'm not a child who gets triggered when someone else has different opinions than I do.

    Whether I'm coding or gaming, 27" is as big as I want to go. I've done bigger and I've liked it less.

    I play on a 34" ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio for WoW. Like others had mentioned FPS can and will be a problem. However i think BFA should fix all that.

    Personally I FUCKING LOVE IT. Especially love moving anything thats not critical button wise to the corners out of my FOV.
    If i was riding a donkey down the road. And someone threw a rock and knocked me off. Would i be stoned off my ass?

    With a 1060 I would not unless you plan to upgrade to a better card soon. 1440 adds a TON of extra pixels that need to be rendered and a 1060 could have a harder time.

    A while ago I bought a 32" 1080P tv and hooked it up to my computer solely as a monitor.

    I've found that it is good when playing games. As others have said it does mean sometimes I have to look from one side to the other.

    It's also a bit too big for doing work on (Excel & Word etc.), but then I view that computer as an entertainment device, not a work computer.

    I've been using a 32' TV at 1080p at a distance of around 1m as a monitor since 2009 and it's fine. Got used to this now anything smaller than 32' feels really small.

    Too many variables, but that size alone is enough for me to scream "nope".

    Assuming you're within two feet of the display it's going to be incredibly grainy.

    27" is the sweet spot for 1440p if you're using it as a monitor due to your proximity from the display, but that's only one aspect.

    Been using 24"x3 (1080) in surround for years now, and couldn't imagine going back to a single monitor. The amount of screen space you get is absolutely amazing, not to mention that you actually see things which would otherwise be off the screen if you only had 1. Surround still has some technical limitations unfortunately, but wouldn't stop me from highly recommending it over a single 32-34" monitor. Also FWIW I run on a 1060 at high settings and get good FPS.

    I play on an 24" 1080p 144hz monitor. I love it. that being said, it's not a good monitor until it's 80" 6k 244hz.

    Trolling aside, it's preference. In wow it's fun to have larger screens, in FPS it's feels better to have a smaller one because you can see more clearly than missing something in your peripherals. I personally prefer refresh rate over resolution.

    Yeah it's fine as long as your graphics card can power it fine and doesn't break down in heavy visual aspects of say the raid.

    Why is BFA going to fix things? Are they finally going to rebuild the entire visual engine and allow multithreading and wow to take advantage of SLI, etc etc?

    I play WoW, as well as other games (Destiny, PUBG, BF1, etc), on the HP Pavillion 32Q with 100+ frames on a GTX1060 6GB. I wouldn't put much weight on these people saying play on a smaller monitor. I feel like they either don't know what they're talking about or they play FPS games that benefit from different features. Your context is WoW, so let's stay there...

    A 32" monitor is fine for WoW. I play it on one every single night. More room for addons.

  17. #17
    It'll be fine, but 32" is a bit large for 1440p in windows, so everything will be much larger than normal. If you don't mind that, go for it. Otherwise, the standard 1440p monitor size is 27" and that's what I would recommend.

    And yeah, the GTX1060 is fine for 1440p. I used to play WoW at 1440p on a GTX770 at 60fps and the GTX1060 is much faster than that. WoW isn't a particularly difficult game to run.

    It can't be nonsense when it's his personal opinion/preference.

    I use a 34” ultrawide, WoW runs beautifully on it. Unless theres something wonky w the specs on the 32”, I’d say do it.
