List of 2560 x 1440 Monitors- December 2021
Quad High Definition or QHD as it known to most of us is a step up from [full high definition](http://monitors-uk.com/monitor-resolution/full-hd-1920×1080/) or FHD. Featuring 2560 x 1440 pixels on the screen at any one time the QHD monitors are able to give a clearer crisper display.
**There are some things to consider** before buying a 1440p monitor, if you go for a small QHD screen, for example [24 Inch](http://monitors-uk.com/monitor-screensize/24-inch-monitors/), you may find that the text on your desktop is too small. If you are just a gamer this might not be a problem, or you can work around it by setting Windows to use larger fonts and Icons. Ideally higher resolutions are suited to bigger monitors. Some would argue that higher resolutions are a must for bigger monitors, 1080p doesn’t really cut it on a 32 inch screen!
To get the most out of a QHD screen you’re going to need a decent graphics card with a decent amount of video RAM. With all those pixels on screen your PC needs that extra memory to work with, especially when using high resolution textures. A 4gb GTX960 is probably going to struggle to work with one of these monitors, but a GTX970 will fair better. To really future proof your rig a GTX980 will be the way to go.
**Can I have a QHD 24 inch monitor?** They do exist, but you have to think about whether it makes sense. 1080p looks great on a smaller screen, sure maybe 1440p is better but does it make a large difference? Is it worth the extra strain on your graphics card? Is it worth the additional cost of all this. Arguably not.
