What size screen do you use for gaming?

_

As for myself ... still chugging along at 1920x1200 on a 42" Panasonic plasma.

32" HP Omen 1440p for PC gaming. Tried connecting the ps4 to it, but it looked like ass.

Considering jumping up to a 40+" 4k hdtv for PC gaming/console use. Reading reviews on cheap 4K HDTVs working well as PC monitors (Samsung 6300 and Sony x720e spring to mind). I'm interested in going this route because I mostly use my PC for irc/discord, web browsing, and gaming (non competitive) and a tv should also allow console gaming to be upscaled more attractively.

Went from 27" 1440p gaming to 15" laptop. How I miss my desktop but just didnt have the time to justify money invested; ergo, the downgrade.

I used a plain old 23" 1920x1080 Acer for years, then the experimenting started. First I got a 28" 4K 60Hz Samsung monitor. But only used it for a few months, dpi was too small, many apps don't scale at all, and many that do did it badly. Then I got a 27" Acer 144Hz 2560x1440, which I'm still using. But my eyes are not what they used to be, I wish it was at least 29-30" with the same resolution.
I also tried a 43" 4K VA screen for a few days but it was terrible. Too large for desktop I only used the middle of the screen because the outsides weren't in my focus. Basically I couldn't comfortably cover that much real-estate, and my eyes started to hurt even after 5 minutes of looking at the screen. It looked great for gaming, but my eyes were still hurting even during that usage.

My next upgrade will be a 34" 3440x1440, when one becomes available with at least 120hz. The current ones are only 100hz capable, that's not gonna cut it.
Oh and I use TN, in fact I prefer TN over IPS, take that IPS snobs!

50" Samsung 6300 series 4K TV. Can't wait for FreeSync on televisions to become a reality.

ASUS PG278Q (27" 2560x1440) and Samsung UN49KU6500 (49" 3840x2160). The latter will occasionally be used with the PC, but usually only with games that have a locked frame rate. G-Sync FTW.

I am more of the "can't wait until Freesync and Gsync stop existing so there can be a unified variable frame-rate technology that everyone can adopt" variety. Doesn't help matters when Freesync monitors are so much cheaper than Gsync ones.

Asus ROG Swift PG278QR 27" 2560x1440 G Sync 144hz(165hz OC). I don't think I'll ever go back to 60hz again.

Until you've tried 4K @ 60hz. :) In all seriousness I won't upgrade from 4K 60hz until 4K 120hz GSync comes out which will be years before it would even be affordable.

I've got an Acer 27'' Q123SomethingF that does 1440p @ 144hz.

Loving the high refresh rate. Having been out of the loop on PC gaming for nearly 6 years and only having 144hz this past year has been a game changer.

HDMI 2.1 will bring the advantages of G-Sync/FreeSync (and higher refresh rates) to mainstream televisions. Hopefully manufacturers start using it sooner than later.

I mostly game on PS4/X1 or through Steam link on my W1070 1080p projector with a 140" screen. Got a Playstation VR last week and have been loving it, not sure what size/resolution that would be :p

Wasn't sure what I was going to see in this thread for a moment. ;)

Still chugging along with an NEC 2490wuxi with A-TW. I'll upgrade one of these days when I actually have some confidence in what's out there. Or if this thing dies on me.

No worries this isn't GenMay

I have a 24" 1080p 144hz monitor for PC gaming, a 24" 1080p 60hz monitor that my PS4 Pro is connected to at the moment, and I have 43" 4K Vizio with a XB1s, PS3, SNES Classic, and Switch connected to.

43" 4k just a couple of months. 1080Ti seemed overkill for my games at 1440p, so I upgraded. Wish I had more gpu at times, but very admiral job. Round and round we go lol.
