Not sure if i'm missing something, but the XF240H at $150(which I personally bought a few months ago around $180) seems to be a better option? It's got a good stand and VESA mount, 144Hz, Freesync. People complain about the colors out of the box but just set something up (I don't care much, I'm colorblind).

u/REDDIT_IS_FOR_QUEERS · 15 pointsr/buildapcsales

Don't know why anyone would pay 180 for this thing. Shit stand. Shit bezels. Reject panels with dead pixels most likely.

This is a better deal.

u/onliandone · 4 pointsr/buildapcforme

I might have missed something, but I don't think that's possible. Which racing game are you thinking about?

Yeah, you could get one monster PC with multiple processors and SLI, but afaik VR does not properly work with that. Multiple GPUs each running their own OS? Maybe possible, but that's too much tinkering, and not guaranteed to work at all. 4 gpus would also be too much for the board, I think.

But $20,000 is a lot of money. Let's say the four seats cost $5000, as with https://rseatamerica.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=67. The displays could cost under $1000, 4x https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ. For the wheels, Logitech makes good ones, though they are expensive: 4x https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Driving-Racing-Feedback-Steering/dp/B00Z0UWV98, $1500 (edit: Note the alternative recommendations in the comments to this comment, apparently this wheel is not a popular option). Keyboard 4x https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823816015, $300. The headphones, https://www.amazon.com/AKG-240-Semi-Open-Studio-Headphones/dp/B0001ARCFA is an option, $220. Though maybe you want closed ones.

That leaves for the interesting part $12000, for the PCs. And of course that is more than enough to get 4 VR capable gaming PCs:

External Storage has too many options, could be as simple as https://www.amazon.com/Book-Desktop-External-Drive-WDBFJK0060HBK-NESN/dp/B00KU686HI linked to one PC, or a real NAS system. But that would be a topic of its own.

So, given that gigantic budget possible. Practical? Well, on you to judge. You definitely want to double-check everything I wrote, it is not like I (or anyone around her, most probably) has ever created a setup such as this before.

u/Demokirby · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Try these, I think this monitor is the same as the XF240h but with a worse stand.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/42r01z/recently_got_an_acer_xf240h_as_a_gift_and_cant/

You can also try the amazon one.

u/Tathir · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Currently torn between the XG2401 and the XF240H. Both seem like great monitors, with the general consensus that the XG2401 is better, hence the higher price tag. Question is, is the extra $70 or so worth it? I don't know much about the very fine details behind monitors, other than that the XG's Freesync range is better.

Any thoughts?

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/RocketLeague

this is only $230 dollars and its freesync!

ask me any questions about it I use this for RL, its amazing balls

Good monitor if you don't wanna deal with used ones! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DHTWZRQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_cci6ybZ9KWH3E

u/ConfusedFall · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If your looking to play a 1080p you'll want to go with a monitor with a high refresh rate, like the ROG Swift one you posted. Here's a 144hz that I use that's a bit cheaper.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DHTWZRQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

You could also step up to 1440p with that card, and for the same price as that ROG you can get 1440p 144hz monitor too.

u/Paracelcus · 2 pointsr/buildapc
u/Dragynfyre · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Also that's a bad 144Hz monitor. It doesn't come with DisplayPort. Spend a little extra and get something that isn't outdated like this one

u/cyborgerian · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Newegg Amazon (Acer XF240H) Currently sold out from both, but you can back order it from newegg. Amazon also usually has them back in soonish, from my monitoring the past few weeks. (Usually 199$)

u/taztic · 2 pointsr/Monitors

I picked up the Acer XF240H on a costco sale for 169.99$ a few months ago. 1080 144hz with FreeSync. It's about 200$ right now on amazon, I definitely recommend it!
https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ

The colors are kinda wonky out of the box though, and should be adjusted. I followed this post here and I've found that the color settings work pretty well for me

u/TinyTimothy22 · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

What type of graphics card do you have?

Here are two nice AMD Freesync 144Hz 1ms monitor on sale and not on sale.

u/ExRcanian · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Acer XF240H if 200 is the limit. This monitor doesn't have many thorough reviews, but the image quality will most likely similar to others in this price range. Tolerable.

Another option is the AOC G2460PF if it comes back in stock. Again, probably the same subpar image quality as the previous one.

By far the best in this range would be the $260 Viewsonic XG2401 which, for a TN panel, probably has the best image quality/colors in this class.

u/Polo_Pajamas · 2 pointsr/buildapc

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DHTWZRQ/?tag=pcpapi-20

24in is better for 1080p. This is cheaper has 1080p, Freezync, 144hz

EDIT: Rx 580 is releasing this month, as well as Ryzen 5. Might be worth seeing the benchmarks for both of those.

u/Notthemasterchef · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I know that you're looking for 60-75hz, but this monitor is 24", 1080p, has a 1ms response time, and a 144hz refresh rate. It also costs about the same as anything you'd get that fits your criteria, and 144hz really does look a lot better. Not sure if it's IPS or TN though.

u/futilehavok · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Build looks solid. I'm assuming you're wanting a freesync monitor?


Two good options:

Both are 1ms response time and 144hz

  • If you want to try 21:9 ultrawide, this should be a good place to start.
  • I included a CPU/MOBO/Cooler that can handle modest overclocking, incase you want to jump into it. There's a good guide on /r/overclocking and many youtube videos out there to get you started.
  • I went with a RX480 because the monitor supports Freesync. This an AMD only technology and would make this setup truly worth it.
  • Now if you didn't want a 21:9 ultrawide, you could swap that out for a GTX 1070 and a 144Hz 24" 1080p Monitor. Though I will note, that this monitor is also freesync and would benefit from an AMD GPU. That being said, the RX480 has a hard time reaching 144 FPS in most newer games.
  • A note -- The 21:9 Monitor I included has support for 75Hz Freesync over Display Port, despite the product page on some sites listing it only at 60Hz.
u/Nexdeus · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

Just a heads up, this monitor is on sale.

u/CUK4CoCoPuffs · 2 pointsr/Monitors

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ - right now, you can't beat that value

The viewsonic xg2401 but you can't get a new one for less than $260.

$70 less For a monitor that is nearly as good is a great deal - people seem to enjoy having it from the reviews.

Outside of shitty colors out of the box, people have posted screen adjustments to get the colors pretty decent.

u/ObamaIzHitla · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

Freesync though

EDIT: Normally they (>120hz+freesync) go for alot more but youre right; this only $10 more.

You are very welcome!

I would definitely get this 24" 144hz FreeSync monitor.

u/AfterAtoms · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

$229 retail for this? Honestly, you can get a lot more for your money if you look. I got my main monitor, an TN Acer 144hz 1ms for $190 here. I think the price went up though. It even has a VESA mount. It's basically better in every way, just 3" less, but worth it in my opinion.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good deal if that's actually the retail price, but there's some things that are just not worth it. This is one.

u/snazztasticmatt · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

I actually just ordered this guy to go next to my 29" ultrawide last week, should be coming in today or tomorrow. I wanted to wait for a 1440p 34" 144hz ultrawide with freesync to come out but they're prohibitively expensive and I'm waiting for the vega to be released anyway. I'll be shifting my ultrawide a bit to the left so that I don't have to spin too much to see it

I have a monitor that doesn't support freesync and i want to get a monitor that does. This is the monitor i have now and this is the one i want. I don't want to get rid on my current monitor so i was thinking of going dual screen. Would the freesync only work on one monitor or not at all since one of the monitors isn't freesync?

u/cGraymatter · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I’m looking to setup 4 monitors in a 3+1 configuration. Question is whether I should invest in a 3+1 mounting stand OR a single-arm stand to support the monitor that sits above the middle monitor.

The 4 monitors I’m using are all different in width, resolution and weight, which also complicates things. Here they are:

  • My center monitor is 24” wide and 15” tall and has 100x100mm mounting holes. It weighs ~14lbs.
  • The monitor that I plan to have sit above my center monitor is Samsung, only 19” wide and weighs somewhere between ~10lbs to ~14lbs (Amazon and CNET disagree). Notably it only has 75x75mm mounting holes.
  • My right monitor is also Samsung, 22” wide and weighs around ~12lbs. It has 100x100mm mounting holes.
  • My left monitor is ASUS, 23.6” and weighs around ~10lbs with 100x100mm mounting holes.

    Because my top monitor has different mounting holes (75x75mm), does that make things more difficult if I were to get a 3+1 stand? Will some or all stands support the weight of all of these (most importantly the one on top)? Which is better if all my monitors are different widths, a 4 monitor stand or a single arm stand? Is it practical to have a stand for just one monitor sit above the middle monitor? Does it mean anything that all my monitors are different widths?

    Appreciate any and all help!
u/Normiebrah · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Arguing with bigots on the internet how fun.

In your link there is no 'XF240H.' You say that it is better than the ASUS, but does your link compare or say anything between the two? No, it does not. Therefore it is YOUR subjective opinion. Here are the facts. The Acer XF240H is flicker free just like the Viewsonic. Proof? Description of the monitor.

I said that the colors are not as good as the viewsonic. You think it's significant. I think it's not. I literally said in my original post that it's anecdotal.

Take your monitor circlejerk masterrace shit and go back to /r/PCmasterrace. Done arguing.

u/death978 · 1 pointr/BuildAPCSalesMeta

This one goes on sale a lot for under 200. I got one and its pretty legit. You will have to do some calibrations, the stock settings come pretty poorly set. But once done it's really decent for sub 200. Also if you get it from Costco even better. Cause if you decide you don't like it or find a better one later Costcos return policy is amazing.

u/potatox · 1 pointr/buildapc
  • Go for the RX 480 8GB because AMD has better/longer support for drivers, and you can also get a monitor with FreeSync for much better budget than one with G-Sync.
  • With an RX 480, it would probably be nice to take advantage of 1080p if you do want to spend money on a monitor. I would get a monitor with FreeSync if that's within your budget (~$200-$300). I currently have the Acer XF240H for the same card and I love it.
  • Not sure about the PSU and its brand, but 650W will be beyond sufficient for this build so I don't think you will need to get a new PSU.
  • I would also just get the i5-6500 instead of i5-6400 since it's just ~$15 more.
u/johnyahn · 1 pointr/buildapc

If you want 24" and FreeSync I recommend this monitor: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1481303882&sr=8-1&keywords=xf240h

It's what I have and I love it. The colors need some tweaking out of the box but apart from that it's been great for me.

u/Subiedu · 1 pointr/buildapc

The 1080 is overkill for 1080p. Any games you actually want running at 144hz will not need a 1080. Get a RX 480 and a 144hz FreeSync monitor.

Need more bang? Get the R9 Fury X instead of the RX 480.

If you want to stick with Nvidia then a 1070 will do you just fine.

u/ArmoredTricycle · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Also, the Acer XF240H is another great choice. I got mine the other day and I love it. Colors are a little wonky out of the box but can be fixed.

Maybe ask in a separate thread on r/buildapc or r/pcmasterrace for opinions on the best 144hz freesync monitors?

u/PosturedPasta · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I'm running an RX 480 with a 1080p 144 Hz monitor and it is so worth it. No question in my mind. The smoothness you get from that high of a refresh rate is like butter. Such a better viewing experience than 60/75 Hz, no matter what the game (even on the desktop lol). You can get a good one for ~$200 and that price difference is worth saving for imo.

Edit: For example, this one.

u/Tex__Mechanica · 1 pointr/Monitors

This monitor gets down to $189. Or lower depending on sale. 1ms 1080p freesync 144hz over DP. Colors out of the box are not the greatest but with some tweaking can be great. I own this monitor AMA if you'd like. I mostly play Dota2 & FPS.

u/New_at_PC_Building · 1 pointr/buildapc

I have a Acer XF240H and everything is working perfectly. I was looking around on Acer's website and noticed there were drivers for the monitor. I didn't know monitors needed drivers... After reading up on Acer's website they say "Acer only recommends downloading and installing a monitor driver if the plug and play driver offered does not offer support for your monitors native resolution or refresh rate, or if you are having issues with color quality." The monitor has bad colors in general, but everyone says that about this monitor. So should I install the drivers?

u/BrkoenEngilsh · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I would look around for a bit.

the XF240H went on sale on amazon for 190$ ten days ago.

The AOC G2460PF is 199 and supposedly looks better than the older 144hz monitors.

u/pingsting · 1 pointr/Amd

Nice monitor op. An off topic question: I live in 3rd world Africa, and freesync monitors are not really sold by local vendors. Im looking to import from amazon this Monitor for the equvalent of $440 :(

Seeing that it would be almost impossible to send it back, how reliable are new monitors thees days, am I taking too big of a risk?

u/T-In-The-Clutch · 1 pointr/buildapc

For budget level I've seen in person the Viewsonic XG2401 , Acer XF24H (Roommate owns this one) , and Samsung C24FG70 (I own this one) and they're all really good budget monitors. If I had to rank them in terms of display it would be Samsung->Viewsonic->Acer. The Samsung is the only one that is not a TN pane but it is also the priciest. I bought it because I got it on a huge deal at Fry's. the curve is negligible. All 144hz, all 1 ms response time, all 1920x1080 which is all we can hope for at this level of GPU really, maybe a little 1440 but not a whole lot. I would recommend any of the three. We were cautious about the Acer due to lack of reviews but has really impressed us so far. Just have to a do a little fiddling with colors out of the box. Another bonus the Samsung has is the quality as it comes out of the box. It also produces the largest reproduction of color gamut. In my opinion all are very good value and fantastic 144hz entry level monitors. They're no 144hz IPS GSync monitor or anything but they definitely get there job done!

u/Wrath_0f_Khan · 1 pointr/Competitiveoverwatch

I had a question and answer for the op. First I use https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ its a great freesynce monitor, with a wonderful stand, and it occasionally goes on sale at Costco or amazon website for 149.99 + tax. My question was what type of cpu do you use? I am trying to get my game to run at 120hz or 144 hz, and I am currently stuck around 90-130 fps. My specs are fx 8100, 8gb 1600mhz ddr3 ram, gtx 750 ti, what do you think is my most limiting component?

u/Noob_Established · 1 pointr/BuildAPCSalesMeta

I personally have the C274FG70, but that's $270.

For your budget, I'd recommend the XF240H. Good specs and it's available at Costco.

I have the acer xf240h. Its a 144hz 1080p monitor. You can get it for $200 refurbished on newegg or new at $210 on amazon.

Only issue I have with mine is that sometimes when I turn my computer off it just cycles between the inputs, says no signal, sleeps for a second and cycles again. I just turn it off. But then sometimes it doesn't and just stays asleep...

Hmm, so believe it or not I have had this problem since i first built my pc, I thought my old 60hz monitor was slacking that is why I got this instead https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ but even now with a new monitor I always feel a slight delay... Back when I used to play Overwatch i had 100 fps constantly on my 60hz but still felt delay... I am going to do a computer rebuild this week, I am going to switch out the old paste for the cpu and dust it off

First one if you want cheap. 2nd one if you want gsync as well. I'd probably step up to 1440p with a 1080ti though. That card is overkill for 1080p

I used pcpartpicker.com to filter the specs I needed, and unfortunately most of the 144hz monitors I found were unfortunately out of stock (or would take long to deliver). Here's what I found:

This Asus is 75hz but cheaper than most.

This Acer sounds perfect but is unfortunately out of stock.

And as stated previously, this AOC would also be great, but is out of stock temporarily as well.

I guess the Asus one sounds better than just a 60hz, but i'll have to look up some reviews. What do you think, if I may ask?

EDIT: I keep seeing people saying that 144hz doesn't work with HDMI, and using HDMI seems like you'll get a max of 75~hz? I'd also like to add that I definitely understand the future proofing, but as of right now the only games I go over even 70-80 fps in are games like csgo (which I don't play so often anymore), and star wars BF/battlefield. On top of that, I'm ignorant to the glory that is anything above 60hz, so it wouldn't be a huge detriment to me. I'll definitely be on the look out for these monitors, but I just can't seem to find any at a good price for my budget, or that are in stock. Thank you though!

I plan to mostly play Overwatch, so I think I would be better off getting a TN 144 Hz monitor.

This one seems good: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483551076&sr=8-1&keywords=Acer+XF240H

Well, I can just start listing 1080p 144hz flicker-free low-blue monitors with links to see if you find one with thin bezels, but the bezels are the limiting factor.

Viewsonic XG2401

BenQ XL2411Z

BenQ XL2430T (Not a big difference from the XL2411Z)

Acer XF240H, Newegg Link Here

That's pretty much all the non-Korean monitors you'll find that fit those 3 categories. 1080p 144hz just doens't have a lot with it. You already have the ASUS MG248Q, so I didn't include that one. I also only listed FreeSync-capable monitors.

Freesync is an adaptive refresh-rate technology that syncs the frames out-put by you GPU with the refresh-rate of the monitor. It's designed to eliminate screen-tearing and/or the stutter associated with regular V-Sync making for a much smoother feel to gameplay, especially when the frame-rate dips below the target refresh-rate. It comes at pretty much no additional cost, you just have to select the right monitor. If you can swing another $50 I'd go for Acer XF240H which you can get for $200 here or here. If this is too much I'd suggest the Lenovo LI2364d. It's priced a little high right now @$140, but it very regularly goes on sale for less than $120 (recently as low as $100). The Lenovo is 75Hz, but is IPS too which is nice.

u/Penteke · 1 pointr/buildapc

You need to use the monitor with a display port cable to get the 144Hz.

That is just information I have gotten from:
this review: https://www.amazon.com/gp/review/R341I0C7E9PK99?ref_=glimp_1rv_cl
amazon's product listing: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ
Costco: https://www.costco.com/Acer-XF240H-24%22-Full-HD-Monitor-with-AMD-FreeSync.product.100316061.html

Costco's listing tells you that you will only achieve 120Hz using a dvi-D cable.

u/EdgesCSGO · 1 pointr/Monitors

Acer XF240H. 144 hz is nice to have especially at this price point.

u/Darkasf · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This one is pretty nice and you can spray paint the orange ring if you don't like it. I did something similar with mine.

u/escaflow · 0 pointsr/buildapc

For $250 max budget you're mostly limited to TN budgets .Yeah like many have pointed out , high refresh rates options are usually in 24" form factor . That said , there are these few monitors fitting the criteria

Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz $259

Acer XF240H 1080p 144hz $210.85 Freesync

ViewSonic XG2401 1080p 144hz $259.60 Freesync

If you have an AMD card it would be nice to get the Acer or Viewsonic for the freesync and between them , would personally recommend the Viewsonic XG2401 .

Whats the diference between The Acer GN246HL
and Acer XF240H ?

u/Grinnz · 0 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

Freesync monitors are not any more expensive than straight 144Hz monitors. I have no plans to get an AMD card but https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XF240H-bmjdpr-24-inch-FreeSync/dp/B01DHTWZRQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483051059&sr=8-1&keywords=xf240h was still the best bang for my buck. (G-sync monitors are of course usually much more expensive.)

u/oijlklll · 0 pointsr/buildapcsales

Yeah I mean it can be worth it but it's all preference. I actually tried a 27" 1440p and found it was just too big for me but it could be good for you. My LoL performance actually improved going back to 24" (finally made gold yay). Another great option would be a 144Hz 1080p monitor. Your card would really be able to use that to its full potential and 144Hz makes for a great experience.

This is a pretty good one and on sale for a very good discount. Just fyi it will have slightly worse colors than an IPS model though. This is the one I have, got it on sale for $220 and I am very pleased with it.

By the way everything I linked is a 23-24" monitor. If you need recommendations for 1440p monitors I can recommend some as well.
