2K vs 1080P in Video Cards and Monitors Posted September 16, 2020 Well my personal opinion on this subject, is the higher the resolution the better. I have a Acer Predator 27" 165Hz 2K monitor and when the Display port broke and I went back to 60hz, I couldn't tell the difference really. Sure it was less "smooth" but it didn't change my ability to get kills. I much rather have a higher resolution than uber refresh rate. But I also not a competitive gamer. I play COD, Battlefield 5 and Destiny 2 mostly. None require much skill be be considered good. If you are playing Valiant, CS:GO or Apex Legends, it might make more sense to go all out with the increased refresh rate.
