High res and low AA or the opposite?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, due to a lack of space I’m looking at getting a laptop for use with P3D and have two questions. It’ll have a 17” display, and I have a choice between 1080p and QHD (2560x1440). Given the screen size, both options would have a high pixel density and so I assume antialiasing can be kept reasonably low. My first question, is there a difference in image quality and GPU load between 1080p with a mid AA setting, and QHD with a low AA setting? Would AA even be needed on the QHD screen at 17”?

Secondly, would a GTX 1070 be sufficient to run at these resolutions, or is a 1080 really recommended? There’s a huge price difference between two. I understand Dynamic lighting, shadows etc all play a part but just looking for a broad opinion.

Thanks in advance,
