But if you need better graphics then 1440p resolutions which also widely available in a 27inch gaming monitor are good to go. The last one is 4K ultra which does not look cool on a 27inch Gaming Monitor but it is eye-popping on a 4K TV that ranges between 43inches to 58inches screen size.

Again if you need more then RTX comes in the picture. RTX higher detail, it does not do any special changes in the resolution but works more on the graphic and detailing of the screen image. GPU like Nvidia RTX 2070 is ideal for Watch Dogs Legion. Click the link to know more about RTX FE 2070.
