1440p with 60 FPS
I will always go with 60fps as the priority.
In my case, if I can't achieve 4k/60, I'll set a custom resolution of 3840x1600 for an ultrawide aspect ratio which looks real nice, doesn't need to scale, and isn't as taxing as 4k/60. I have yet to play a game that I haven't been able to hit 60fps at least with this ultrawide resolution. 2080ti rig. If I did, maybe I'd go down to 3840x1440 and sit a little closer lol. If that fails THEN I'd probably go down to 1440p. But yes, 60fps first.
The only downsides to this are that it doesn't work in HDR, and either the game has to have the borderless window/not exclusive fullscreen mode option, or you must go to Nvidia Control Panel and go to Adjust Desktop Size and Position and set scaling to 'No Scaling', so that it looks correct in fullscreen modes in games. If you leave it at the default (Aspect Ratio) option, it'll stretch the image vertically, which obviously will look horrendous. So yeah, ONLY if you play games without the borderless window option.
It's a major bummer but that it doesn't work with HDR, but there are plenty of games that only have SDR and can benefit from that Ultrawide ratio.

Might be something to do with nvidia scaling options.
Trying to get Asssassin's Creed odyssey HDR to work on PC, i thought it might've been a hdmi 2.0 bandwidth limitation at [email protected]
, so i started to reduce resolutions, and got a no signal.
You shouldn't need to force 60hz unless you like to play with Blackframe insertion/TruMotion set to User (I say this because this doesn't work in 120hz mode). With BFI option turned off, there's no advantage or benefit to get a 1440p/60hz signal. If it's because you want to lock games at 60fps on PC, you can just use something like Afterburner's Rivaturner's statistics server to cap games to whatever fps you want. So in this instance of wanting to cap games to 60 (if there are no in game options), locking the fps down with RTSS is just fine.
The framerate limit option is the one to mess with.
It works well with 120hz signals, because you could even lock games down to 40fps which has proper framepacing with 120hz. Much better than 30fps. Just remember to set it back to 0 when not gaming or everything will lock down to whatever fps you set.
I can't WAIT for a 2.1 capable graphics card. If it works as it should, we'll be able to set a custom res to 4k/100hz. This means we'll be able to cap games anywhere from 30, 40, 50, 60, 100, 120hz! So if you can't hit 60fps, 50 is not a bad choice at all. We can already do 1440p/100hz, so it goes without saying the TV will be capable of 4k/100hz once we get 2.1.
