I actually already asked this question to /r/pcgaming and got some excellent feedback.

I ended up purchasing a 1440p 60hz monitor for the resolution later that day, and just picked up a 1080p 144hz recently, so I have the advantage of playing with both of them side by side to give you an accurate insight.

The 1440p has much higher color quality and makes games look ridiculously beautiful. The fact that you're at 2k 1440p means you really don't need much, if any AA to get smooth models. The desktop work space is very nice to have outside of gaming, especially if you work on editing video or do graphics design. This thing is BRIGHT. I had to turn the brightness almost all the way down just to keep it at a comfortable level, especially at night.

What I've noticed with my 1440p is if you're running a rig with a 970 or a card of equivalent or lesser performance, playing 2k 1440p resolution with ultra settings will yield framerates under 60 in most AAA games.

It also is a double loss in performance because the games you do have that pump out over 100 fps tear badly on 60 hz monitors. The lack of consistency in frames per second in general is noticeable enough to degrade the entire gaming experience. This can be somewhat fixed by enabling vertical sync, but it doesn't work well in every game, causes input lag sometimes, and from what I've observed it's there just to do what it can.

In a nutshell, 1440p didn't match up with my system's performance output at all. I had to actually turn down games in order to get a substantial, fluid frame rate. And even then, it was still capped at 60 fps max. I even overclocked my monitor to 75hz, and it looked worse even though it read 75 fps in-game. And turning down the game's resolution to 1080p on the 1440p monitor obviously didn't look good at all.

The 1080p 144hz monitor isn't as great in the color and clarity department on the desktop (in-game there is a smaller, noticeable difference, however it is not a deal-breaker), but holy cow when I first connected it, the difference was night and day. The game was so much more fluid and played more "live" if that makes any sense. Every single game looked and played like it felt like it was supposed to, some even better.

I wanted to cry when I first played CS:GO at 275 fps. It was that beautiful.

In all seriousness though, being at 1080p vs 1440p meant my graphics card could pump out much higher framerates above 60 at ultra settings with AA, where it was having trouble staying in the 50s in Witcher 3 at 1440p with some things such as foliage distance, shadow quality, nvidia hairworks, draw distance, and terrain quality turned down or off completely. I love my 1440p monitor and its resolution, but it just doesn't do well for gaming on this rig.

And the biggest difference? I was actually able to SEE the frames at 100+ fps. I play games exclusively on my 144hz monitor now while the 1440p is great for a second monitor with a large desktop workspace.

At [email protected], you will get higher and much more consistent, fluid frame rates that won't screen tear at higher ultra with AA. Games look so much better, I cannot stress that enough. OR at 1440p you'll get lower frame rates at lower graphics settings at the cost of a higher resolution, and will have bad screen tearing in games pumping out over 100 fps, forcing you to enable vertical sync.

After playing with both of them for many hours, if I had to go back and pick one, I'd pick the 1080p 144hz hands down. Actually if I could have an extra $1200+ to throw down, I'd pick up a 1080 pascal and a [email protected] monitor.

TL;DR Don't get a 1440p unless you have the rig to back it up. If you want to push 1440p for gaming, you'll need a rig running a 980/i5 or better, and a 1440p monitor with 144hz to get the minimum performance necessary for games to look as good as you paid to play them at that quality. Otherwise, go [email protected]

With your budget, you can certainly make 1440p work. A gtx 1080 would be ideal for that. I would recommend going with a single 1440p 144 hz Gsync monitor rather than 2 144 hz monitors.

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB271HU-27-inch-Widescreen/dp/B0173PEX20

For gaming, I don't see a real need to have 2 monitors. I'd rather pour more money into a single amazing display because your game will only run on one of the monitors. If you need more real estate for work and productivity, then get a cheap second monitor.

I'm pretty sure there's room to save some money here too, but I'm on mobile and going to sleep, so maybe someone here could help trim some dollars.

My monitors (pictured right):

https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VG248QE-1920x1080-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=asus+vg248qe&qid=1567120962&s=gateway&sr=8-1

My wife's monitors (pictured left): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0043T7FHK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The stands:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C5H5DN0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My wife doesn't notice difference between 60 and 144 FPS and doesn't play shooters so for her we went with a less expensive option that had a lower refresh rate/response time. The speakers are a little quieter too, and they don't have display ports (her aging GPU only has HDMI ports anyway). If you can spare the extra money per monitor I would HIGHLY recommend the VG248QEs. I've had these for about two or three years now and they've been a dream. Reliable, beautiful picture quality, speakers are loud af. I use display port cables on each and then I have my Switch hooked up to the right monitor with an HDMI. When it's time for me to play Smash with my buddies in discord, I just push a button and it flips right over for Switch time.

Couldn't recommend the stand enough either, things incredibly sturdy and well constructed. I've had it for as long as the monitors and purchased it again when buying my wife's monitors this week.

u/CitizenReveur · 30 pointsr/buildapc

I have a 144hz Asus monitor and a IPS Dell Monitor.



After using calibration profiles for both, the IPS easily has better color depth, accuracy, viewing angles, and etc.


HOWEVER, the monitor I ended up using more is the Asus, because I play competitive CS. Actions feel much more responsive and fluid even on 64 tick servers, but much more-so on 120 tick+ servers. I play on the lowest settings, and on high digital vibrance, so the IPS beautiful screen is useless.


Any game that couldn't utilize the 144 hz, was a bummer to play on the Asus. Even after calibration, the colors felt over-saturated and or washed-out. I don't know much about color accuracy or what-not, but the IPS definitely looked better on games, movies and and even browsing.


Depending on what your doing, could highly influence which monitor type is better, but I think 9/10 if cost isn't an issue, the IPS is a better choice. And, if money still isn't an issue, and you want the best of both worlds, those overclocking IPS monitors from Korea is always an option.

u/Insert_a_User_here · 24 pointsr/buildapc

Nice Build. His budget was around 1100, so he might be happier if he stepped up the monitor a level or two. Maybe go for a 24inch 144hz monitor if he primarily plays first person shooters. This would be a good example:

https://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-1920x1080-144Hz-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1478271530&sr=1-3&keywords=144hz+monitor

Or, if OP isn't into playing FPS games then he could get a decent 2560x1440 monitor instead such as this:

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-G257HU-smidpx-25-Inch-Widescreen/dp/B00QS0AKVK/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1478271680&sr=1-1&keywords=2560x1440

Either one puts the total a little over the 1100 budget, but the difference would be very very noticeable, and OP would get a true feeling of PCMR

This is what I'm using, and I couldn't be happier. It's the same Predator however it has the IPS panel. I'm a fan of the IPS colors for the extra $100, and I paid more than $700 a few years ago. Still worth.

If you're looking to save $100, you can get the same monitor you mentioned (TN Predator) at Amazon cheaper than Newegg.

On Amazon as well for the same price.

Why can't the 27" go on sale. I missed the last BestBuy one a month ago, I wasn't planning on building a computer/going for such an expensive monitor. Now I have all my parts except for a monitor. Can't decide on which to get, and can't get in on the limited stock Refurb ones either.

Anyone have suggestions? Regarding the 27" Dell, the Asus or the Acer?

u/StayFrosty7 · 16 pointsr/buildapcsales

144hz is a huge step up. If you don't have the money, then this is fine. But if you can drop the cash for a 144hz monitor, then I'd definitely go for it. It might even be worth it to check out a 1440p 100hz ultrawide.

Monitors to look at:

1080p 144hz TN

Ultrawide 1080p 144hz IPS

1440p 144hz TN(you might not be able to hit 144hz with all games on this one due to the resolution being so high)

EDIT: TN, not IPS

Yes they do, both of them. I happen to have many. Even my $250 LED monitor just this morning had so much glare, I couldn't see anything and had to turn it away to see better. I only linked the monitor to show you it is in fact LED and not just a generic, cheap monitor.

GTX 1080 is definitely going to overkill this 1080p 60Hz monitor. I would either get the GTX 1070 and a 1080p 144Hz monitor like this one or keep the GTX 1080 and get a 1440p 144Hz monitor like this one

This thicc girl is proud of her bezels and flaunts them around however if you could spare another $50, her cuter sister has a higher refresh rate and smaller bezels. I am sorry you had to read that, thought I'd try to make you laugh however I made cringe.

Not sure what your budget is, but I picked this one up recently and really like it. 1440p, 165Hz, G-sync, 24" TN panel

u/-Rivox- · 13 pointsr/Amd

If you can add some money, buy this monitor instead which has FreeSync and is 144Hz.

Otherwise, if you can't spend 50$ more, check out this and this.

Don't buy a non-freesync monitor.

As for the 480, no it won't overheat, the node202 has a big grill right where the fan is, so it can take as much air as it wants. MOreover, since it's a blower style card, the volume of the case doesn't affect the cooling (cold air is taken by the fan and hot air is spit right out of the case through the rear. Hot air doesn't remain in the case)

Good for the rest ;)

Is this really considered a deal when there is the Dell S2417DG, which also is a 24" G Sync monitor at higher resolution of 2560x1440 and Overclocks to 165Hz for $399.99 on the Dell website, Amazon, as well as Best Buy who also happen to have an open box of it at $354.99.

u/pushformusic · 12 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Yes, yes, yes. That assumes your video card is already putting out at least close to that amount of frames. It's a most for FPS games.

I have this one.

u/showersareevil · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

I paid $260 for the 1440p version of this. I would have definitely went with this one if it was such a good price a week ago. It's probably not worth returning my current monitor to save $80...

Your post is one of the best deals this sub has seen on a cheap 144hz monitors

u/aclee_ · 12 pointsr/buildapc

It's a little more than $100.

Here's an AOC Freesync monitor


Here's the exact same monitor but with gsync. do you think the exact same features in a monitor are worth twice as much?

u/spicedpumpkins · 11 pointsr/buildapcsales

OK let's use your example. Hang on, this is going to be a long read.

THE BUILD THINKING PROCESS: Have realistic goals for your budget and build the highest resolution to fps ratio you can get for the money with a target of 60fps minimum for at least 75% of the time.

When I make a build I almost always include an adaptive sync monitor (freesync/gsync) in the budget because of exactly your scenario.

When enabled, the average person CANNOT distinguish in the middle of a fight between 130 and 144fps. Now you're going to get that super APM Korean here who will claim they can but on average most people cannot consistently distinguish above even 120hz....Linus tech tips and a bunch of other respected tech youtubers have fleshed this out ad nauseum.

With this in mind, adaptive sync alone can often mitigate loss of frames vs what you actually notice when playing, thus slightly future proofing your needs to upgrade immediately on a new hardware cycle.

When a friend, family member or colleague asks for a pc build the following questions come into play:

  1. What specific games or genre of games will you be playing?

  2. I explain to them what adaptive sync is and usually Show them this video. I also tell them I try to target them at 60fps on average as most people CAN notice below 60fps. At my house I have 1080p 75hz, 1440p 144hz/165hz and Ultrawide 3440x1440p at 120hz set ups for me and my own family and explaining to them these are $1100+, $2000+ and $3500+ builds and let them play with them. I also have built budget builds sub $600 but explain that there won't be an adaptive sync monitor in the build.

  3. Then I ask what's their top dollar budget before tax using roughly $1k, $2k and $3.5k increments and tell them what resolution and refresh rate they are buying into so they have upfront expectations of the best case scenario for frames. I also clearly explain that there will be variable fps depending on what is going on in the game and how graphics intensive it is.

    In addition, I also explain the difference in most games between med, high and ultra settings and what things you could turn off to increase frames and not notice much difference in overall gameplay (e.g. Turn off Hairworks, Reduce shadows appropriately, at higher resolutions there is little need for higher AA, etc.)

    NOW LET'S TALK ABOUT UPGRADE PATH:

    According to most recent Steam Hardware Survey the vast majority of gamers are rocking 1050ti/1060 level of cards. These are 1080p medium to high settings cards that can deliver 30-120+ fps depending on game.

    I tell them there is ZERO need to upgrade even when new hardware comes out IF you are happy with the current FPS of games you are playing. Seriously. Who gives a shit if all they want to play are esports titles like DOTA, LOL, Overwatch, Rocket League, Fortnite, etc and are getting 60fps+ and frankly typically 100+fps in those titles with those GPUs. Why bother upgrading a 3-5 year old system at all if your gaming experience is good and you are pleased with the current results.

    When to upgrade then? When a game comes out that you know you want to play outperforms your current setup and you are willing to pay to meet the performance bar. Depending on title, this MOST of the time doesn't even require anything more than a GPU upgrade if they already have a solid CPU and RAM config.

    I'll give you the perfect example. I had a colleague who was playing mostly esports titles with a 1060ti rocking a i5 4690k with 16GBs of DDR3 but now wanted to start playing more graphic intensive games such as Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter World PC at 60fps+ and he thought he had to buy an entire new computer and came to me. He currently has a 144hz 1080p IPS gsync monitor. I said no way man. Don't throw out the baby with the bath water. His rig specific for gaming is still quite playable in most titles. I asked him if he was happy to keep his current playing resolution (1080p gsync) or if MIGHT consider going 1440p in the near future. He said he was sure he wanted to stay at 1080p for now. I suggested he just upgrade to a 2060 for $350ish bucks. He ended up getting a 2060 for a little over $350 and is extremely happy with this upgrade path. Here he thought he was going to have to spend $1500+ and was perfectly happy with the $350 upgrade.

    THE BUILD ITSELF:

    I take my sweet ass time and tell them it will take at least a week before I'm done building when all parts arrive (even though I can knock out most builds in a few hours) so I have no rush on myself as I build PC's for a relaxing hobby and not a job. Some people build legos or models. I like building PC's.

    Long read. I hope it helps save you some money and make a more informed PC building decision.
u/not1frak · 11 pointsr/AskMen

Spent several grand building out this magnificent beast of a workstation/cockpit:

http://imgur.com/a/GAgVj

I had everything else but the monitors and the cockpit, which was about $1900 and $1500 USD, respectively. I got all but one accessory for the cockpit, and shipping was $200 cause it weighs over 200lbs :D

I already had the $400 wheel, $300 pedals, $200 shifter, $150 handbrake, and a PC that is nothing less than $2500-3k to drive such a setup.

That said, I can race around any track I want around the globe, do so without spending thousands on tires/gas/gear each race weekend, am not risking life or limb, and am on-hand at home to be a father to my 1yr old daughter.

Sure I've spent the price of a not-even-that-old Honda Civic on this setup over the years, but its good clean wholesome fun, and fantastic practice for later in life should I ever decide to buy a track car.

Most women see this "rig" and roll their eyes HARD, but only after scooping their jaw up off the ground. Men just get insanely jealous and beg to drive it after scooping their jaw up off the ground :)

Worthit to me!

u/Ambushes · 11 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Most of the good stuff is gone I assume, there are some really good deals on monitors, an unlocked S9. I looked through basically everything electronics.

PG279Q, if you're willing to take risks you can get a 165hz IPS 27" 1440p for sub $500, but I'm willing to bet the lower condition ones have dead pixels or something. Personally I'd aim for ones marked 'Very good' but regardless it's well below the ATL.

u/lesgeddon · 11 pointsr/buildapcsales

Damn, it's 24" little brother just shipped for me and I paid $40 more. Welp, nothing 's leaving the box it shipped in until next week. Gonna take a lot of self control.

Edit: On second thought, I'll stick with the smaller one since it's 165hz refresh and closer in size to what I currently have.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IOO4SGK

It's 144hz, gsync, and sup $400.

It's also 1440p.

I have a 27" 1440p now, but it's a 60hz IPS and I've decided that 27" is to big for my tastes. I have to sit to far back from it to get a good view on it and I want to have 3 screens, so I'm going to get 3 of these dells.

sorry to be "that guy" - but actually, the freesync version of the 34" acer is the XR341CK and it's 75hz (with a fury X he would have the freesync version).

the gsync version is the X34. it's a few hundred bucks extra and 100hz.

THAT SAID, because of the adaptive sync technologies many users claim they cannot differentiate between these monitors and 144hz, so i'm totally splitting hairs on you. both monitors are really fucking nice and really fucking expensive, so your overall point is still valid

u/discum · 10 pointsr/gadgets

You want https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-UltraWide-Widescreen-X34/dp/B016GNX4SE. 1440p Ultrawide @ 100Hz with GSync. It's pretty much top of the line atm, though I think there is a 38 inch version too.

u/[deleted] · 10 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I have been wanting multiple monitors for awhile. I don't know why I put it off so long. I bought a gaming PC for 2 main reasons. Blu-rays and games. I can now play a game on 1 monitor while watching my blu-rays on the other. It's SO nice. When the monitors arrived, ordered from Amazon, I freaked out because it said free-sync instead of g-sync. I checked the model number with my order, and it was right. I realized the monitor is listed as g-sync compatible. Oh well. It works.

As for the upgrade to 144 Hz, you guys are right. It is so much smoother. I set 1 monitor to 144 Hz and left the other to 60 Hz to compare. Even moving around the mouse cursor is so different. I feel like my GTX 1070 wasn't able to show it's true potential until now. I have them hooked up via the display port cables that came with the monitors.

By the way, if any of you upgrade to a better monitor and wonder why it's not showing more than 60 Hz, this post helped me. I never want to go back to just 1 monitor or just 60 Hz again.

u/Sir-Dristan · 10 pointsr/buildapc

I actually prefer the 24" version of 1440. I have a Dell 24" with G-Sync and it's the best goddamn monitor I've ever used.

Edit: It also overclocks to 165hz which is exceptionally nice.

Same MVA panel, same ultrawide 100hz... Same price but we'll call that a measurement error.
But that's while we're keeping it in limits of ultrawides, once we move from those particular shackles we have a classic 144hz IPS example:

$600 MSRP on Freesync vs $800 MSRP on G-Sync. Exactly $200, sales notwithstanding.

> What makes the MX34Q not a gaming monitor?

Lack of 1337 gam1ng aesthetic (see above for reference). I can game just fine on my cheap ass s22e390 and it even has pretty good response times for an IPS panel, it does not become gaming monitor from that however.

Do these use the same panel? One is 144hz, and the other is 165Hz.

u/Tyhan · 10 pointsr/buildapcsales

The Acer XF240H is a newer panel and the only complaint I've seen about that is that its out of the box colors are worse than the VG248QE's. It's flicker free at all brightness settings where the VG248QE uses PWM at <100 brightness. And let me tell you that you will not use it at 100 brightness.

But if you don't like that one specifically, here's another 144hz from Amazon that's newer than the VG248QE at a price I'd definitely say is worth it over the VG248QE: https://www.amazon.com/AOC-G2460PF-24-Inch-Professional-Monitor/dp/B01BV1XBEI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499027011&sr=8-1&keywords=144hz+freesync

u/Vonkilington · 10 pointsr/smashbros

I could be am wrong here, but the deal is that they have insanely low response time. 1ms.

It's not just BenQ monitors, my Asus VG248QE also has 1ms response time. BenQ is smart about getting into the esports scene early and sponsoring, so their name is very recognizable for gamers.

Note that a lot of the expense of my personal monitor choice comes from the fact that it's 144hz. Total overkill for Smash, but feels much better for games that actually support it (CSGO, Overwatch, etc).

One last anecdote, I switched from a 60hz 5ms response time to my 144hz 1ms response time and the difference was immediate and noticable. Colors are more washed out on the faster monitor but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

u/Applecrap · 9 pointsr/buildapcsales

And if you prefer amazon.

And a link to the rebate form.

u/GuysImConfused · 9 pointsr/buildapc

I would definitely get the IPS one - you have to keep in mind that response time in your system is cumulative, so 1ms is not five times faster than 5ms. Your mouse/keyboard to motherboard, motherboard to CPU, CPU to GPU, GPU to RAM etc it all adds up, and you end up having maybe 20 - 30ms input lag in total, so you are choosing between 30ms and 35ms roughly - and that is a negligible difference.
However, the colors and viewing angles are a BIG difference. Definitely go IPS.

EDIT: Here is my specific recommendation.

  • 165Hz
  • IPS
  • 2560x1440
  • G-sync

For the Monitor, the ASUS PB278Q is my sRGB compliant monitor that works fantastically. If you want to bump up to Adobe RGB compliance the PA279Q is the way to go, but quite difficult to find from a good seller.

In regards to the desktop unit, the Intel i7-6XXXk series is the tried and true CPU to go with, with the 6850k being in the good sweet spot for a value proposition.

Minimum 32gb RAM for video editing from my personal experience, preferable 64gb for Premiere and Photoshop running simultaneously.

Most prefabs have already switched their GPUs over to 1080 ti for their high-end stuff with out dropping stupid cash for the quadro P5000/P6000. The increases seen by the quadro series over the 1080 ti seem to be minimal anyways.

The final big money-sink is storage. I would recommend a 1tb SSD, either the samsung 850 PRO for your standard SATA connection or the new 960 PRO for a PCI-E M.2 slot which is significantly faster. For your bulk storage, I recommend the Western Digital 4TB Black drives, either one on its own or two in RAID 0 for a total of 8TB storage or RAID 1 for redundancy to ensure no data loss when one drive fails.

Here's a screen shot of this configuration on Origin PC's Neuron Pro system.

And a link for Digital Storm, the other pre-fab builders that have earned my trust.

How much would you like to spend?

You are US based correct?

Is there a preference in screen type (IPS vs TN vs 'best-of-both' VA/AHVA)?

What kind of games do you play? Shooters vs RPG vs Explore?

Basically 27" is standard 1440p fare, ~30-34 start to become widescreen 3440x1440 (IMO, a great monitor but pricey)

A safe, and good bet is the Dell S2716DG that you will not regret.

u/pianodude4 · 9 pointsr/buildmeapc

I don't know everything about building PCs (just built my first), but I wouldn't go with that monitor. Yes, the refresh rate is high, but with your budget, you really should go for a 2k or 4k resolution with your monitor.

Edit: Here is an Asus Rog Swift monitor at 1440p (2k) with a 165hz refresh rate.

Here is one at 2160p (4k) with a 60hz refresh rate.

I don't think they make 4k monitors above 60hz yet, so if the framerate is important to you, I'd go with the 2k one.

You won't even be able to see the difference between the 165hz and 240hz and I think a higher resolution would be a much better improvement over the higher refresh rate. Plus, you get 2.5 inches of extra screen.

u/Skuzzee · 9 pointsr/pcmasterrace

So, I spent a lot of money on building my PC and have had an amazing gaming experience for over 2 years now. But during my entire career of PC gaming, I’ve always used 60 hertz, basic-type monitors.

Just last month I took the RISKY, SCARY, EXPENSIVE plunge into the “G-Sync, high quality gaming monitor world”. I purchased this.

https://www.amazon.com/PG279Q-2560x1440-G-SYNC-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B017EVR2VM

And believe me, I had the same questions you are asking. Is this worth it? Do I get an IPS panel? Or save money and get the TN version? Will I see a difference with 144hz? What about 165hz?

When I plugged this monitor into my PC, enables the 144hz through NVIDIA Control Panel (that part is important) and launched a game.... it sounds so cringey and nerdy, but I almost cried. It’s a whole different world dude. It feels like you’re opening a door into a world you’ve ALWAYS wanted to be in. If you have a high end gaming PC, you are doing yourself a DISSERVICE by not owning a G-Sync (or even FreeSync) monitor with 144hz.

Just do yourself one huge favor. Do not compromise on quality and price. Look for the brand names and read reviews. Search YouTube for reviews. Ask friends. And never forget... always buy the extended warranty on high priced tech. These things are not perfect and will “go out” eventually.

Long winded answer. Yes. You go out and buy one as soon as you can. It will change your gaming experience forever. I’m NEVER GOING BACK.

It depends on what your preferences are on bow you like to experience games. Both comments so far have the two of the best options: a Korean 27" 1440p or a 24" 1080 that runs at 144hz. If you enjoy the look of the game more, with arguably better colors, go with the Korean monitor, such as this one; if you enjoy a smoother experience, go with something like the ASUS VG248QE or the BenQ XL2420TE (If you're partial to FPS games, this is the better choice IMO).

u/Emrak · 8 pointsr/Planetside

My build, for comparison purposes:

i5-4670k (OC'd to 4.0), 8 GB RAM (1600 mhz), GeForce GTX 780 3GB, and PS2 has it's own dedicated SSD. Last,

but not least, my monitors are two Asus VS247H-P as seen here http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005BZNDS0


Side Note: I used to run an RadeonHD card and ironically, dollar for dollar, got waaaay better performance

(for the price) than I do for my current nvidia. There are definitely diminishing returns IRT higher end video

cards.



Summary: I can run everything at its highest setting and achieve roughly 40-60 FPS in 24-48 battles. In

96+ battles, my FPS is roughly 25-50. I choose not to run everything at its highest setting for performance

reasons.


My actual, current settings: http://i.imgur.com/tNbbZ92.png


1) Determine what is most important for you: the gameplay or the graphics. You will find that many high-

skill players with beast rigs run PS2 at very low settings because--for them--the game is the thing. The

graphics are secondary. Some would make the game look like MineCraft if it helped.


2) Understand that what we call FPS is integrally tied to your monitor. The vast majority of current

monitors (such as mine) have vertical refreshes of 60hz. This means that the absolute most frames per second

my monitor can display is 60. Even if I get 200 FPS, my monitor will only show 60. Side Note: my monitor is

actually only capable of displaying about 56'ish FPS, because the monitor response time is 2ms. Response time

is how fast it takes your monitor to actually process the frames it receives. To achieve actual 60 FPS, my

monitor would need a "real time" response time.



3) Understand that your FPS in PS2 is a ping-pong game between your CPU and your GPU. By using CTRL-F10 in

game you can toggle on your FPS counter in the lower left corner.

Note in this pic at the warpgate: http://i.imgur.com/AKhw9l0.png it shows a "GPU" next to my FPS. This means that my FPS is hitting the limits of the video card (my CPU isn't holding back the FPS).

However, in this pic, in a 1-12 contested battle: http://i.imgur.com/ePp7DmM.png you'll see it shows my CPU as being the limiting factor. Having a beefier video card would be irrelevant. This is because out on the battlefield, my CPU has so much work to do processing bullets flying, damage taken, motion detector pings, etc.


Optimizing For Me: How I arrived at my current settings was due to my consideration that gameplay was king (goodbye flora!). Knowing that my monitor was capable of only displaying roughly 60 FPS, I aimed to kick my settings as high as possible, yet low enough that I can get 55+ FPS in even the most massive engagements. Hence my current settings.


Optimizing For You: Take 20 mins and experiment with all the settings and see what you can get. Assuming gameplay is king for you, set your Overall Quality to Very Low and Render Distance to 600. Using Fullscreen (as opposed to Fullscreen Windowed) seems to give some folks an 5-10 FPS boost when using a single monitor. It does nothing for me personally, but it can't hurt to try. Then, after you are in-game, bring up Windows Task Manager, go to Details/Processes and find your Planetside...exe process. Right-click and set priority to HIGH. See what FPS you get at WG and what FPS you get in massive battles at different bases (not all bases are created equal IRT FPS). If you get greatly in excess of 60 FPS, then consider increasing different graphics options (because your monitor won't be using those extra FPS anyways).

Things that produce the greatest FPS gain:

Turning shadows off.
Render Quality (huge FPS boost).
Render Distance.
Using Fullscreen mode and changing your display resolution.
Graphics Quality toggle (huge FPS boost).
Turning Fog Shadows and Ambient Occlusion off.


Things that seem to do almost nothing in of themselves:

Lighting Quality (always set to low).
Model Quality (always set to low).

Acer XB271HU is on sale on Amazon for $599.99. Cheapest its been on Amazon. I got mine 2 days ago and had no dead pixel or BLB. Was very happy with the purchase. On Amazon, it said this model was available May 8,2017 vs the Asus one which was in 2015.

u/Lunatic_Panda · 8 pointsr/buildapc

I would also probably go 1440 over 4k. The performance benefits are much better, and coming from someone who dropped from 4k to 1440, you wont notice a HUGE difference between them.

GSync is awesome, I love it, and if it fits in your budget, it is definitely worth checking out. I can drop down to 45-50 FPS and never really notice that it is that it has dropped below 60.

The most important things that I could recommend is looking at the games you play and deciding if you want a faster response time or better color reproduction/better viewing angles and what refresh you want to have.

TN monitors are the way to go for faster response time, and many FPS players prefer them for that reason. IPS will get you the best color reproduction and viewing angles, but will be more expensive than a TN counterpart. Both offer refresh of up to 144Hz and there are TN monitors that go as high as 200Hz.

I hope this helps a little in making your decision.

Not OP but the monitor is an Acer Predator. Own one myself it is truly glorious

u/UrBoySergio · 8 pointsr/editors

Acer 34inch Predator IPS panel is hands down my favorite and I recommend it. Acer Predator 34-inch Curved UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1440) NVIDIA G-Sync Widescreen Display (X34 bmiphz) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016GNX4SE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4bJSCbJ5JPPWH

It comes very well calibrated out of the box, almost like those Apple cinema displays of the past. Because it’s curved you will experience a bit of backlight bleed on a total black screen but I never notice it otherwise and it doesn’t distort the colors.

u/xXiDominateXx · 8 pointsr/buildapc

I wouldn't go for a 27" 1080p monitor since it won't be very sharp (24" is the sweet spot for 1080p). Go 1440p 144hz. I would reccomend the Dell S2716DGR as I have the 24" version of it (It is $150 off on bestbuy right now). Unlike what u/rtey31 said a 1070 is fine for 1440p 144hz aslong as you don't care about using ultra settings. I use a 1070 on my 1440p 144hz monitor. Vega is also another option though with a freesync monitor like the Acer XG270HU.

u/johnnywahl · 8 pointsr/buildapc

Definitely, the 27" 1440p 144hz would be a better.

/u/Yuzle whats your budget? IF it's lower, I'd go for the Dell S2719DGF cause it's on sale for a killer deal right now. If you have a bigger budget, an IPS panel like the Acer Predator would really make teh colors pop in games like Witcher

u/jim2point0 · 8 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

Any of the 34" 100hz ultrawide panels would meet that description. They are all 3440x1440 I believe.

Asus ROG PG348Q

Acer X34

Samsung CF791 (this is a VA quantum dot panel though, not IPS)

Just a few examples. There's probably more of them.

u/BlackDiablos · 8 pointsr/buildapcsales

Looks like Acer has been creeping up the price of these refurbished units. I'm pretty sure this exact model used to be $500 on the refurbished store and $400 for the older XB270HU.

This almost isn't worth it when you can get the monitor new for $765, but that's still a personal choice if that extra ~$165 is worth new.

u/dxrion · 8 pointsr/buildapc

i'll save you some time.

 

the top 1080p 144hz 1ms TN Panel they recommend over there on every post that asks, #1 is the Viewsonic XG2401

& #2 is the LG 24GM77-B

they say these two have the best color accuracy for a tn.

 

i recommend the Samsung CFG70

it has better color accuracy than both of those monitors above (because it's a VA panel and not a TN) and colors look as good as on my other IPS display IMO. (IPS panels have the best color accuracy)
and it has great viewing angles unlike a TN panel.
also it's $70 off rn. i really wouldn't pass this offer up as you're getting better color accuracy and better viewing angles for only $20 more than the Viewsonic.

 

good luck (:

u/Hopehellsucks · 8 pointsr/buildapcsales

Viewsonic xg2401 has always been considered one of the best 144hz monitors out there at $199, the xg2402 variant hovers around $215 but I can't tell ya what the difference between them is

u/Spyzilla · 8 pointsr/buildapc

Get the Dell S2719DGF! It is exactly $300 most of the time (I got it for $270 on sale) has great colors for a TN panel, free sync which works fine on Nvidia cards and is 155hz. Amazing value

u/Mattb150 · 8 pointsr/pcmasterrace

They make a 24" version that is several hundo cheaper if you're looking for max affordability. But the 27" is great.

24" on Amazon

u/CynicalTree · 7 pointsr/SSBM

I posted above but this isn't really accurate with just this statement

Melee only runs at 60 FPS. 60 FPS = 60 HZ in that the monitor can only update when there's a new frame available.

The benefit in 120 FPS is that it will finish drawing the frame slightly quicker, but you likely are not sensitive enough to notice the difference without A/B testing 120HZ and 60HZ at the same time and feeling the immediate difference.

There is a 120FPS build that specifically leverages 120HZ monitors for lower input delay and it's still in beta/testing.

His listed monitor only has 10ms of input delay which is near the bottom of the scale. TVs can have 30-40ms of input latency so his monitor listed is very good.

I would only recommend a 120HZ monitor for melee if you also plan to play PC games on it that will actually run higher than 60 FPS. I can't see it making sense financially to spend money on a 120HZ solely for netplay.

Edit: I found a 75HZ IPS monitor at the same price range with 9.6ms of input lag. I recommend this monitor if your budget is under $150 USD.

u/paulatreides0 · 7 pointsr/neoliberal

/u/JetJaguar124 /u/Integralds

So first thing's first, Windows: ~$130 for Home Edition.

Okay, so things to keep in mind:

  1. If you go Intel, overclocking isn't too great on 9th gen intel, especially if you don't have a beefy aftermarket cpu cooler. So if you don't plan on doing that at some point then you don't need a K series CPU and an overclocking motherboard. So your motherboard should primarily focus on giving you decent I/O options.

  2. You also probably want to aim for 1080p or 1440p tops, given your price range.

  3. Related to #1: If you don't plan on overclocking then a basic-ish mobo will do fine, and you mainly want to focus on I/O and other features. If you are getting Intel doubly so, as, as I mentioned before, intel 9th gen doesn't overclock well due to relatively low headroom to begin with. For intel overclocking boards are "Z" while non-overclocking boards are "B". For AMD they are "X" and "B" respectively.

    The GPU you should be seeking to use is the 1660 Ti, which is basically a slightly gimped RTX 2060 but without the raytracing stuff. If you are willing to spend a bit more then you could get an RX 5700 instead, which is nearly ~30% faster on average.

    That'll put you at $270 - $360 depending on the model you pick. Yes, it's a third of your budget, but the GPU is the single most important part of your build.

    Secondly you'll want a decent CPU to go with that.

    The Ryzen 5 3600 looks like a pretty good CPU, its a bit under $200, its fairly beefy and extendable so it's somewhat "future-proof" - in that it shouldn't cause much bottlenecking and you could upgrade your GPU past a 2080 Ti before needing to change the processor.

    This MSI Tomohawk Mobo looks good for the 3600.

    So we're at ~$320 for that, or about $640 total. Plus windows that is ~$730.

    The RAM Inty recommended before should be fine. You only really need 16 GB. This will set you back ~$80. If you find yourself wanting more RAM later down the line you can always add another pair of sticks later and double up your RAM.

    That puts us at around ~$800.

    $80 for a 750W Fully Modular Corsair PSU is basically a steal. It's refurbished though, although that shouldn't be a problem - especially with a PSU.

    We're at ~$880.

    Some good thermal paste for your CPU.

    We're now at ~$890.

    Storage depends on what you want to do. Do you install a lot of stuff and files at once? In which case you might want to get a nice sized SSD plus a big HDD.

    For your system drive. Plenty of space, good price, AND its an nvme SSD.

    That makes for ~$990.

    If you need lots of extra space

    If you need extreme extra space

    Keyboard and case are up to you, decide as you please. For the case just make sure that it can support an ATX mobo, as the mobo listed here is full ATX. Mechanical keyboards are crack, but they tend to be more expensive so they're probably out of range. This will be another $100 to $150 depending on what you pick.

    Something to keep in mind though: Your case and your monitors are basically "future proof". In other words, they won't really get "worse" with time or cause future performance issues. So monitors and case are things where you want to consider what you'll eventually want and buy ahead, even if you have to stretch a bit.

    This just leaves your monitor. I would NOT recommend a 1080p monitor above 24 in. Honestly, if you can go for a 1440p monitor then do it. I'm a bit of a resolution whore tho, so if 1080p works for you then that's fine. I would also avoid TN panels - they tend to look more washed out, tinny, and have worse viewing angles . . . although they also tend to be a fair bit cheaper than the good panels (namely IPS panels).

    I used to own one of these . . . it was vvy vvy gud. This is a relatively artsy monitor, so if color gamut correctness or whatever is important for you for photo or video editing or whatever, then this is a good pick. It's a bit expensive, yeah, but also super gorgeous. It also goes up to 75 Hz. Conversely, get a freesync monitor, and this one is probably good - haven't done much research on it, but Dells are generally pretty good in my experience (my current 4K monitor is a Dell too). Freesync will allow you to basically eliminate screen tearing and will provide a smoother feeling experience because it will even out frame rates better.

    One last thing to keep in mind: Shopping around on ebay and other sites can save you a fair bit. My rule of thumb is to never, ever buy sensitive parts like hard-drives, cpus, or motherboards second hand or refurbished. But everything else is fair game. So refurbished GPUs, Monitors, PSUs, Cases, etc. should be fine. Pre-owned? Ehhh . . . that I'm much, much more sketchy on - personally I wouldn't, but that's just me.

    So in total it'd be somewhere in the range of $1500 including monitor, OS, case, and keyboard. The system itself is around $1000. But you can perhaps knock off a hundred bucks or two by shopping around and looking for where you can buy these parts cheaper than Amazon.

    But again: investing in a good monitor and case can be worth it. It means you won't have to replace it if/when you do upgrade. And worst case scenario you can offload your monitor as a side/secondary monitor when you upgrade your monitor to a new one.

Dell 27" G-Sync 144hz (S2716DG). Great monitor and doesn't look like a carnival ride. If you're into that, you can always paint the base red or copper and run some LEDs along the back. Stock image settings are terrible, but easy to adjust. Take a look at the first review here for settings:

Thursday was my last day. It wasn't the worst thing ever, but goddamn I am so sick of fucking drive thru.

In other news, I'm finally moving to Duluth next Wednesday. I think I'm pretty comfortable with job stuff, but if anybody knows of anything good I'd love to hear about it.

Also, I got some money from amazon for sending in textbooks and I think I'm going to get a new monitor and possibly some speakers for when I'm not using my headphones. After doing a bit of research, I've landed on the AOC G2460PF and Logitech Z323. Anybody familiar with either of those?

u/athriren · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

Amazon has some "very good" (for $465) and "like new" (for $491) in their warehouse deals as well if you're looking to save a little more money.

Additionally, the street price per camelcamelcamel for this monitor appears to have settled at $599, so bear that in mind when considering the savings.

Don’t get that one. It’s the lowest end 144Hz monitor and at $196 it’s too expensive relative to other 144Hz which are much better. $15 more but way, way better

$3000 computer for a videographer... only spends $180 on a 21" monitor? ಠ_ಠ No. No. Nope.

SLI is pretty much useless for video editing (very hit & miss depending on the software) and only adds unnecessary heat and cost to the rig. Drop one of those 780s and focus that money on a quality 24-27" IPS screen and hardware color calibration! (stay the hell away from those budget 4k TN screens)

Edit: Also, if OP is used to their MBP keyboard, I'd recommend picking up a wired Apple keyboard. Personally, I find them much less fatiguing on my fingers. It makes for a seamless transition (if you're still using the MPB) and goes a long way to make your Hackintosh feel more native.

Edit 2: After some very surface level searching, here are some much better monitors the OP should put their money towards: HP 24" z24x P-IPS ,Dell 27" U2713HM P-IPS and Asus 27" PB278Q P-IPS. If it can't come close to 100% sRGB, it's shit. Oh and the monitor color calibrator.

Op you bought a 2080ti you might as well splurge on the monitor. Get two of these and call it a day, or go for one Dell Alienware 34in 1900r, 120hz IPS curved Gsync.

I have the Acer 1440p/144hz IPS Gsync and I agree with P1zza. It’s such a great monitor and often times Acer sells it for $499 out the door on their refurb site. Really great colors, angles are great, very little black light bleed on mine (right bottom very minimal), don’t have to calibrate it much out of the box, 165hz OC + gsync is really smooth. The Dell is nice if you are on a budget, pretty much the cheapest TN 144hz Gsync you can find when its on promo.

>Also the current 27 inch iMac comes with a 2560x1440 screen which by itself costs around $750 at the low end right now putting the whole thing into competitive territory with PCs.

Er... You can easily get a 27" 2560x1440 resolution ASUS for ~$550, A Dell for $589.00, and lower end brands like Monoprice/Catsleap/Xstar, etc. for even less $300-400--- that's only after 2 minutes of searching on Amazon, I could get even better deals if I really scoured the net.

And let's not forget the iMac is an All-in-one so if one component needs warranty or service work, your entire system is out of comission.

Dell 2417dg is one of the best choice (I just got mine).

165hz - G-sync - 24" 2k (1440p) - 1 ms (of course) -

TN panel ---> but check some reviews it as one of the best color accuracy and viewing angles compared to shitty Benq 1080p monitors.

399$ in amazon US atm this is honestly the best monitor fast and optimized for gaming, but still great for movies.

And the monitors are both Asus vg248qe 144hz displays


The ergotron arms are an absolute dream. If need be I can easily adjust them to a horizontal or side by side monitor setup. Make sure you have enough of a lip on your desk for the base to clamp onto. My desk is really just a dining room table and it's 3'' lip was just barely enough to secure the stand. If you done have a sufficient lip then be prepared to drill a hole for the alternate mounting method.

nVidia LightBoost 2D is a poorly-advertised feature of many new 120Hz computer monitors, that is normally hard to activate (without using 3D). For relevant information, see LightBoost FAQ and the LightBoost HOWTO.

Apparently, it is profitable for nVidia as evidenced by the posts in this thread. People buy nVidia equipment just to get LightBoost working (since LightBoost is limited to nVidia). You will notice that about 20% of amazon.com customer reviews for the ASUS VG248QE monitor (popular LightBoost monitor) have rave reviews about the LightBoost motion blur elimination. Go check out the rave LightBoost reviews on Amazon.com -- within that webpage, hit Control+F and find "LightBoost" in all the Amazon customer reviews.

For this reason, people have been asking nVidia to make LightBoost an easy feature to turn on/off!

u/stringpoet · 6 pointsr/homelab

I have this monitor plugged into my server, but I very rarely use it, since the server has IPMI. Mainly, it's just there to plug into my GTX 1070 for my Steam VM. :)

u/Shablo5 · 6 pointsr/nvidia

As far as I know, the 1070 cannot obtain 144FPS on ULTRA in most games (Although are you ONLY playing the latest games? No? Then it's half relevant). That said, Gsync has you the rest of the way.

Problem is, gsync is also a $150-$200 premium (at least in Canadian) to any monitor. They will tell you to buy monitors like this or this but it's hard to justify those 1440P monitors.

If you turn down your expectation to a 1080p gsync 144hz, then things become a bit more reasonable. But if you're an enthusiast, perhaps you really want to push the limit and try the 1440p 144hz g-sync bandwagon out.

Here's the review of the case I released a couple of days ago

u/AstronautGuy42 · 6 pointsr/Monitors

I’d go for a 27 in 1440p (2560x1440) and 144hz. If you can find a good deal I’d definitely go for an IPS, otherwise I’d do a VA only bc I REALLY hate TN panels.

I’ll edit this with a some links to stuff

This is personally what I’d buy in your position if I wanted a new monitor rather than used or refurb.

Acer Predator XB271HU Abmiprz WQHD 2560 x 1440 (2K) 1ms 144Hz (Overclock Refresh Rate 165 Hz) 350 cd/m2 G-sync Gaming Monitor, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB3.0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-011-082

This is a TN panel. The g syncs at this range go for $500-600. The IPS ones are about $700 for a new one.

You can find refurb IPS ones for about $550 though.


Scratch that. I’d get this one. It’s an IPS for $600. You can get used for $75 less also from amazon.

Acer Predator XB271HU bmiprz 27" WQHD (2560x1440) NVIDIA G-SYNC IPS Monitor, (Display Port & HDMI Port, 144Hz) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZXZ3QBD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZekZBbZ5F8193

This same one is also on acer recertified for $494. I bought my monitor from there with same specs except freesync for $330. No dead pixels and slight backlight bleed. The customer support is questionable and not the most responsive but so far the product works perfectly.

I did a ton of monitor research so feel free to PM me if you have any questions

u/ImSurroundedByBosons · 6 pointsr/buildapc

If you prefer not to take chances on dead pixels or warranty issues from Korean panels, the Asus PB278Q (27 inch) and BenQ BL3200PT (32 inch) are both wonderful choices. I can personally recommend them both, unless you want high refresh rates or low response times. The Asus will OC to about 85Hz and BenQ to 75Hz. Don't buy these for OC.

No way in hell would I spend 500 on a TN Acer monitor, you can get the Dell TN with the same specs (just 144hz instead of 165) for $300, which is said to be the best looking TN there is

From my experience, GSync is a complete gimmick and makes no difference. I may just not see much of a difference though because I'm usually playing games at a high FPS and rarely singleplayer games at ~60fps

u/Blaustein23 · 6 pointsr/SSBM

What's not to believe? You can look up independent testing on various monitors. 1-3ms response time
monitors have been widely available for quite some time and used for just about every other competitive game that's not melee or smash 64, the melee community has been extremely slow to adopt because of price, misinformation, and the misconception that all non CRT monitors are terrible. Truth is there's plenty of laggy CRT monitors out there.

CRT are so prevalent because they're cheap as hell so getting together a few hundred is no problem, whereas 200 high end monitors would run you about $40,000, which is pretty impossible for a grass roots community. Not to mention there's zero risk of someone stealing your old heavy CRT, and a potentially high risk of your nice new ASUS monitor being stolen, or broken, if it is tipped over, dropped, etc .

There's quite a few monitors out there that are perfect for melee BenQ is just the name that's most common.

Here's one in a good price range

Higher quality than the previous, more expensive though

I have the ASUS VG248QE and its absolutely amazing. The height adjustment and VESA compatibility are also huge pluses. On Amazon the cost is a bit steep, but I got mine on eBay for $150 with the original box and wires.
P.S Make sure you use DisplayPort and change refresh rate in Nvidia Graphics settings.

u/Thaon · 6 pointsr/nvidia

If you're tight on money, no. It's a nice feature to have, but its really just icing on the cake.

Go for a nice medium priced 144/120hz monitor. The frames are still buttery smooth, even without the G-Sync.

The Asus VG248QE and Ben Q version seem to both be decent purchases.

u/swoledier · 6 pointsr/gamingpc

Well, if you're using the 60Hz monitor as your secondary, ie. putting random stuff onto that monitor it's not really that big of a deal.

However, depending on your budget, why not just get best of both worlds?

Pick up a 27" 1440p 120Hz ($317) monitor for general purpose/gaming use and a 24" 1080p 144Hz ($270, link here for hardcore gaming.

If you want to see my write up of the aforementioned 27" 1440p 120Hz monitor for $317, you can click here.

The only recommendation I might make is to consider a 144hz monitor. The card you are looking at can handle 4K out of the box.

Picked this beauty up when I built my rig this past November and it is a killer. Keep in mind the trade off, you won't get a much color saturation on this monitor as you will with most 60hz, but the performance excellent.

Skimping on monitor is like putting tires from a Civic onto a Murcielago. Do yourself a favor, drop another $100 and go big

u/llliterateChild · 6 pointsr/Monitors

Probably between the AOC G2460PF and Acer XF240H. The AOC looks like it has average color for a TN, not sure about the Acer. They have most of the same features from the look of it: adjustable stand, flicker-free, free sync, speakers, vesa mount...

The Acer XF240H is still on sale at costco for $170.

AOC G2460PF is $199 at Amazon.

Edit: One sale is over and the other looks to be out of stock... So the Acer GN246HL seems to be the only option atm. I'd suggest you guys wait for the price to drop on something else, check pcpartpicker and /r/buildapcsales.

I have the exact same setup, let me break it down for you like this:

Star Wars BattleFront ULTRA settings in game:
1920 x 1080: 90-100 FPS
2560 x 1440: 60-70 FPS

I wish it ran it faster but it doesn't.
Playing games at 120+ fps is awesome, so you could get 1440p @ 144hz but on older games like counterstrike.

I went with this monitor below, got it for $200 and it keeps me happy for now.
Nixeus Vue 24" 1920x1080 144Hz, AMD FreeSync, 1ms, Adaptive-Sync 30Hz to 144Hz NX-VUE24A

I wish I got that red acer that user: c0horst got, but that would mean your games would run slower.

u/LoneKrafayis · 6 pointsr/techsupport

You made the right choice. None of the games you play have any ray tracing features, so you are not missing any visual quality. Your card will do a good job of playing games for years.

Ray tracing is something that might take hold in the game development industry, but games that make good use of it are 3+ years away. (Current games are just adding a few effects.) When all-ray-traced games come out, the 2080 Ti will be old and slow at ray tracing.

Nvidia has tried other new technologies that have failed. At one point, they tried to get the industry to move from triangles to quadrangles. The people who bought the quadrangle hardware never had many games to play, and the tech was abandoned.

Edit: Perhaps you should not get a GTX1080 Ti, but instead get a 144 Hz monitor for your GTX 970. I would also suggest 1440p resolution and IPS color technology as monitor features.

u/TheTidBits · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

The biggest difference is color accuracy and production on IPS panels absolutely eclipse VA panels. If you want something not expensive that looks pretty take a look at this for 1080p and this for 1440p

craigslist that monitor for -$50 less than you bought it and pay the G-sync tax on a used craigslist monitor. It is a ~$150 loss all around, but then at least, you won't ever have to worry about being let down on a GPU release.

25 inch 240hz 1080p ≠ 27 inch 144hz 1080p

Pixel density would be superior on the AW.

If you are going 27inch, 1440p should be a minimum.

So I mentioned r/monitors because if you go there and mention the ASUS VG248QE, there will be some polar opinions. I actually have this monitor, but I don't know if I would purchase it again. It's not actually a budget monitor either, and mine developed a row light pixels along the center. It's still under warranty so as soon as I get a 144hz replacement I'll send it back and use it as a secondary display. Anyway, I'm a single point of anecdotal data. Many people will recommend other monitors though. The replacement I'm looking at is the ViewSonic XG2401, which appears to be generally well recieved among enthusiasts. Few people have actual standards for monitors, so if you ask somebody they'll likely recommend their own because they like it, not because they did their research.

u/Comassion · 5 pointsr/anime

It this guy, and it's really nice.

u/Matt_has_Soul · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you don't want to wait for an Ebay/Rakuten or other % off code, then I would just give it a month or so and maybe this monitor will have a one day sale. That's what this one seems to do on Amazon according to camelcamelcamel

u/wokethebears · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

This is the same price and doesn't use PWM. It's more or less a budget one still, no freesync, but it does have DisplayPort, and just not having PWM makes it better than the ASUS, as they are similar in most other respects.

If you're willing to spend just a little more, this is looked at as the best 144Hz 1080p TN model, its great in every respect and currently at one of the lowest prices I've seen it.

u/xDinoswordx · 5 pointsr/buildapc

I had the perfect recommendation for you, but when I checked on the price I discovered the it took a $70 hike. Lucky for you there is a similar one Lenovo released here. It's pretty much the same as this, it just doesn't have Freesync. But thats alright since you're using a 1050ti. It is $130, but there are some used ones at $102-$115. I have 2 different Lenovo monitors and they work great for gaming. I like them because of the thin bezels and the matte displays. If you can't squeeze the lenovo into your budget, this is pretty popular. There is also this, which is vesa mountable, which is nice. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

u/Penguin474 · 5 pointsr/Monitors

This is exactly what I want too. 27" 144Hz and G-sync. Here are the 3 that I've found and bookmarked and have been price-checking religiously:

u/AliceFaere · 5 pointsr/buildapc

I might suggest the AOC G2460PF (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BV1XBEI/) then. I don't have any personal experience with it but I think it fits your needs. Like the suggested monitor, it's 1080p 144Hz (great for FPSs) but it also includes AMDs FreeSync which will give you smoother gameplay since you have an AMD GPU.

u/Arudinne · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

This is mainly aimed at photo editing so it's designed for color accuracy first and foremost. It has a response time of 12ms (color to color) and 5ms GtG.

For gaming there are cheaper / better options or some around the same price for new items.

This is just a random example I grabbed from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/PB278Q-2560x1440-DisplayPort-Ergonomic-Back-lit/dp/B009C3M7H0

u/boppop · 5 pointsr/apple

Is the Thunderbolt Display a good display? Yes. Is the Thunderbolt Display worth the $1000 price tag? No. There are displays with the same specs that are less costly. For example, this.

That being said, Apple will also likely release an updated Thunderbolt Display that has the same 5K panel as the riMac when Thunderbolt 3.0 is released as part of the Skylake generation of processors (maybe this summer).

u/Gstroxell · 5 pointsr/nvidia

This is my monitor. It's not IPS. But ill tell you it's DAMN BEAUTIFUL!!! It's also 1440p with 144hz and G-sync.

u/anthokneeee · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Had to look through the comments to make sure that somebody let OP know. Even if you, for whatever reason, do not want to take advantage of the G-Sync capabilities, you can always buy a 27" inch 1440p monitor for cheaper without the Freesync. If you are in the market for a G-Sync monitor with the same specs, this one goes on sale for around $350 semi-often.

u/4ever1der · 5 pointsr/Monitors

If you truly have no budget. May I recommend a g-sync 21:9? This is a [beast of a monitor] (https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-UltraWide-Widescreen-X34/dp/B016GNX4SE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1469540543&sr=8-2&keywords=Acer+g-sync+21%3A9)

21:9 gives you the most immersive gaming experience with a larger FOV that makes traditional 16:9 feel cramped in comparison. Later in the year there are more ultrawides in development with even higher refresh rates like native 100hz-200hz thanks to DisplayPort 1.3/1.4. But that acer I suggested will be plenty fast.

u/foxfire1112 · 5 pointsr/NoMansSkyTheGame

Almost exactly what I have (GPU, CPU, Motherboard). This is the best upgrade purchase I've made so far https://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-1920x1080-144Hz-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0

u/beef_swellington · 5 pointsr/buildapc

>But there's no point getting gsync anymore now that Nvidia supports freesync

that's not entirely accurate. The vast majority of freesync displays only sync in a relatively narrow band of refresh rates--some as narrow as 48hz-75hz. Gsync has no such limitation. Further, AMD is already moving on to a "freesync 2" standard that requires similar levels of certification to what NVIDIA requires for gsync, with commensurate costs.

edit:
here are some examples:
https://smile.amazon.com/27-inch-FreeSync-Response-DisplayPort-MG279Q/dp/B00ZOO348C
144hz ips freesync display, quite high end, but the freesync functionality only works at ranges of 35hz to 90hz. I would be a bit salty if I bought a monitor with frame synching technology that didn't actually work near the monitor's maximum refresh rate, personally.

Compare with a gsync competitor:
https://smile.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB271HU-2560x1440-Display/dp/B0173PEX20
Gsync will work on that monitor from arbitrarily low values up to 165hz (you can overclock the monitor to 165hz--I know because I have one and do so).

u/ZBastioN · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Yes this is a beast of a PC, if you have the money you might as well go for a 4TB drive.

Go at least for a 1440p high refresh rate monitor with the 1080, everything less is a waste of a perfectly fine graphics card.

I recently recommended this monitor for the 1080 if you can afford it, it would be a great match.

u/Michael100198 · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

Having used a T.V as my monitor for the past two years, I've been looking to get a 1440p, 144 Hz monitor to make the most of my gaming experience.

I have a Nvidia 970 and will be upgrading my PC when the next line of graphics cards releases.

This monitor seems perfect although I've been reading about the "monitor lottery". What other similar options are there (Two I came across: one and two? And is there any reason I should hold off on buying for now?

Edit: Also, having a Nvidia card, should I aim for G-Sync or will Freesync work as well?

u/MerryDingoes · 5 pointsr/Fighters

For starters, most people confuse input lag with response/refresh rate of a monitor. That's not the same thing, and I'm saying this as a just-in-case thing. Most monitors on their website do not have input lag listed on their website. DisplayLag has a database where they listed displays with their input lag https://displaylag.com/display-database/ If you sort their database by input lag, you'll see that the best monitor has about 9ms of input delay.

I have two monitors atm. The first one I have is this one: https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-XG2401-FreeSync-Advanced-Ergonomics/dp/B01A0ZRR50 ; on the DisplayLag website, it has 10ms of input lag. The other monitor I have is this one: https://www.displayninja.com/benq-gw2480-review/ ; this review claims that it has 10ms of input lag, but I don't know how reputable this website is (but I didn't buy this monitor for input lag reasons). 10ms is fine, and I think 12ms is doable.

RTings has a website where they talk about general quality of TVs. I'm pretty sure that I have this TV, which was considered the best TV for its input lag for that year (2017): https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/s-series-s405-4k-2018 . Its input lag is 14.6ms, and I can definitely feel the difference between this TV vs my more lagless monitors. On playing on other TVs with more input lag, I can definitely feel the severity of the input lag on those TVs.

u/Megabyte2 · 5 pointsr/Monitors

There are a few options though it depends what route you wish to take. It's hard to know how much ghosting a 1080p IPS panel will have due to the lack of detailed reviews of them.

If I had to pick a 27" IPS I would grab something like the ASUS MX279H which is slightly over budget. Not sure if it's the best one though as I don't often look at the 1080/60/IPS monitors.

If you want to rid yourself as much ghosting as possible then 144Hz would be fantastic. Less motion blur compared to 60Hz, less input lag, buttery smooth and since it's TN its a little faster.

For $200 you can get a good 144Hz monitor, the AOC G2460PF which also includes Freesync.

In the end it depends if you prefer 144Hz or the benefits of an IPS panel more.

u/GJB_93 · 5 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

As was mentioned, you won't find one under £150. Some recommended entry level 144Hz monitors would be:

BenQ Zowie XL2411

ASUS VG248QE

AOC G2460PF

The AOC is the one I have, mainly because it was the cheapest of the three at the time. Have no issues with it, Freesync is nice for the price, although I can't make use of it.

u/TinyTimothy22 · 5 pointsr/RocketLeague

To help out /u/prim0_RL, I have both a Ryzen 5 1600 and a GTX 1060 3GB. I can get 250 at 1080p if I turn down some settings and a stable 144 at max is 1000000% percent achievable. I love my 144hz monitor and for the price, I love my AOC G2460PF

u/OceanicMeerkat · 5 pointsr/buildapc

I got a PB278Q this year (also unsure how to tell the difference between new and old models, I have one and like it alot. I don't know if my eyes can detect PWM, but I usually see its quite well reviewed. It's also usually at least $100 cheaper than the Dell models and can sometimes be had for as cheap as $400.

Edit: I have done some research, and if this article is to be believed, the new models have a Black bezel, whereas the old ones have gray. Mine has a black bezel and I haven't noticed any PWM. This is the exact model I purchased.

u/TrueDiligence · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Just a heads-up, the Dell S2417DG is 1440p 165hz and G-Sync capable for only $365. If your GPU can handle it (I would recommend a GTX 1080 or higher, but for competitive titles a 1070 would also work) it is a great buy. The only major problem I have with the monitor is the color banding. I don't notice it when playing games like Overwatch, but do notice it while playing Hollow Knight and other games with a dark color palette.

u/iMisterPotato · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

Amazon has it too: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-S2417DG-YNY1D-24-Inch-LED-Lit/dp/B01IOO4SGK

The 24" is going for the same price on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-S2417DG-24-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B01IOO4SGK/

u/Unacceptable_Lemons · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

TN and IPS are panel technologies that affect the perceived colors at different viewing angles. On a bad TN monitor (like my brother's TN monitor he got for ~$80 3 years ago) if you have a single color on your whole screen, even at the optimal viewing position/angle, the color will look different at the top of the screen than at the bottom, significantly so. In practice, that means in a game your screen's colors look "off". Now, if you slide out of that spot upwards or downwards (or somewhat sideways)? Instantly terrible. Colors nearly unrecognizable.

On the other hand, on a good TN, like my brother's VG248QE that he bought a year and a half ago for ~$260? You still have the colors a bit off, and you still get color shifting, but as long as you're sitting in front of it normally it's not "bothersome". I wouldn't watch movies on it from an off angle, or slouched back in my chair, but for gaming it's fine.

IPS, meanwhile, has basically all the viewing angles. Lovely colors as far as the eye can see. Downsides: cost (especially if you also want 144hz) and a little extra latency (5ms VS 1ms on TN, not really noticeable IMHO, but maybe for top-tier twitch FPS players).

The holy grail tends to be IPS + 144hz, which only exists at 1440p for some reason and not 1080p, and costs typically over $500, and until recently was in the $600-$700 range.

I have the gsync version of this monitor ( which I would recommend if you have an nvidia gpu, it was only about $30 more when I got it however it is the 24' variant). I assume it is like mine and does not have speakers which doesnt bother me given that I use headphones almost exclusively. I think it is a solid monitor for the price, however dont be alarm if your colors dont look quite right out of the box, there are alot of forum posts giving better settings for color accuracy and other things. Also my roommate has the same monitor and we both have noticed a slight issue where it will move a row of pixels in the middle to the left side of the monitor, dont fret because this is fixed simply by just turning the monitor off and on again, takes maybe 15 secs so it hasn't been too big of a deal.

Overall I think it is a solid monitor for what you're paying, not the best of the best, but by no means the worst. And as far as gaming is concerned being at 144hz in 1440p is great, although it does raise your standards a bit so console just feels wrong XD.

lastly this is not some sort of flash sale, these lines of monitors are constantly on sale, given I bought mine over a year ago and my roommate was able to find the same deal on the 27' version 6 months later for about $350 I think.

Sorry for the long post, but I hope this was helpful in some way :)

Good choices for 144hz 1080p TN panels are ASUS VG248QE and BENQ 2411z. Check for BENQ refurb deals, I got my 2411z refurb from benq.com 2 years ago and i love it, no issues.

and btw 5ms is no big deal, you will not notice, anything under 10ms is definitely acceptable. This video explains everything you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER1YV42iqrE You can't trust what manufactures put in the specs, just read reviews and use 3rd party testing results such as https://displaylag.com/display-database/ if you are worried about ghosting

It's basically just the 24" variant of the S2716DG you mentioned yourself. It's worth mentioning that the Amazon product description does not indicate that it's 144hz, but the [Dell product page] (http://www.dell.com/ed/business/p/dell-s2417dg-monitor/pd) does.

u/DonnyChi · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

165Hz is pretty pointless. I can tell you from experience that it difficult to even tell the difference between 120Hz and 144Hz, heck for most people anything over 90Hz starts to have diminishing returns.

The only use I could see for a 165Hz monitor is in cases where you're playing low-demanding titles such as CS:GO where you're getting abnormally high FPS, a higher refresh rate will mean less chances of tearing. But, this is addressed by NVIDIA's Fast Sync technology at the cost of some latency.

That being said, I'd say a single GTX 1080 will handle 1440p at 120-144Hz, and with a G-Sync display you won't even notice any small dips.

EDIT: also, I'd recommend this monitor for the price: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464583131&sr=8-1&keywords=DELL+S2716DG

I would look at the G-sync 1440p 144hz monitors.

You may need to turn down a few things to keep high fps, but some day you'll want to upgrade your GPU. And at that point, you'll have the monitor for it.

That is the best bang for the buck when it comes to 1440p, 144hz, G-sync. I owned 2, and then upgraded one to a PG348q Ultrawide.

There are still a good amount of games that that 1070 will push high fps in at 1440p.

You're going into the very questionable part of monitors right now. All those monitors all use panels made by AUO and are all "IPS like technology" and not true IPS. AHVA is what it's commonly called. These monitors are the AOC AGON AG271QG, Acer Predator XB271HU, ViewSonic XG2703-GS, and the Asus RoG Swift PG279Q. They typically range in price from 500 to 800 USD new depending on sales. The Acer Predator has been found at Costco twice in the past year on sale for $500-$600 USD and sometimes less depending on the Costco location.

You can find specs here http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/ffbdef8b

Make sure to do your research before buying any of them. They're known to have some quality issues and it's often referred to as a lottery. Make sure to buy from a retailer like Amazon where you can easily return them or exchange for another if you encounter issues. I recommend searching this reddit for reviews, pcmonitors.info, and checking out overclock.net. You'll find plenty of information on those websites and see peoples experience. I personally tried buying the Viewsonic once and had some bad blb in the top right and bottom left corner that was a yellowish/orange color. I returned it.

If you're not liking any of these, then there is the Dell Gaming S2716DG which is a TN panel. It's known to have good color, but it has some sleep issues and color banding. Only around $500 USD and escapes the gaming aesthetic if it's not your thing. Samsung is also expected to be releasing Quantum Dot 1440p g-sync monitor sometime in the future, but I don't know much about that.


Response to edit: Acer does have some g-sync curved monitors, but they're not 16:9 aspect ratio. There's the Acer x34 which only goes up to 100Hz when OC'd.

Theye are really cheap 1080p Monitors for just 100-200 Dollar. Like:

Full HD for 170 Bucks. Thats a deal

u/mynameisshittt · 4 pointsr/buildapc

A realistic answer haha? Anyways, I can strongly suggest getting a monitor for GSync with a setup like mine. Itll help relieve the stress of dropping frames since its on the entry level of 1440p 144hz gaming. If you have a beast card like a 2080ti that probably isnt as necessary. I have this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IOO4SGK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Potentially not that helpful since you mentioned 1080p, but I use Dell's 1440p 144hz g-sync monitor and love it. Colors take a little tweaking in the Nvidia settings but looks great to me once dialed in next to my 1080p ISP panel.

u/perfes · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

Most of the monitors here are free sync and I would say have good implementations however I will include a Gsync category.

​

I would not recommend 4k for the 2080. It would be able to run games around 60 fps at 4k however refresh rate will make things more enjoyable. Also, 4k high refresh rate monitors are currently very expensive.

​

Good value companies to look at:

Viotek

Pixio (Did not list since availability issues but worth looking at)

Nixeus

More established companies to look at:

TL;DR of VA vs IPS

IPS has slightly better viewing angles than VA.

IPS has slightly better colors VA.

IPS has better response time than VA.

However, VA does not have defects like IPS glow and much better contrast, so much better blacks and such.

​

TL;DR of TN vs IPS

IPS has much better viewing angles than TN. TN will color shift if looked at straight on.

IPS has much better colors than TN.

TN has the best response rate.

TN is basically worse in every way than VA and IPS except for response time.

No reason whatsoever to get a g-sync monitor now that nvidia supports freesync monitors as well.

​

If you get a 1440p monitor try to go for a 27 inch one though, sweet spot for that res imo, especially since you already have another 27 monitor so they'll look good one next to the other.

​

Maybe try something like this Dell S2719DGF, which is the best budget gaming 27 inch monitor according to the guys from RTings, and since it's coming from them I'd tend to believe it. It's currently discounted for 20% on Amazon at $359 and at this price it's a damn good deal.

u/quantumturbo · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought this Dell about a month ago

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N2L5CXO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Loving it so far, can't wait to really be able to push it with my new build.

u/BruceLeeSin · 4 pointsr/buildapcforme

Ryzen uses dual channel, so get 2 x 8GB sticks of ram instead of 1 x 16GB sticks. The B350 /u/manojk92 mentioned above has 4 slots for ram, so you'll have room to add more down the line.

It's also not true that you need more than 8GB of ram. 1 or 2 games might recommend 12GB, but 99% of the time 8GB is more than enough. I'd still advise getting 16GB to make sure you never find yourself needing more, but if you had to save money you could get 1 x 8GB stick now and then buy another 8GB stick in a month or a couple weeks when you have more cash.

450W PSU is enough and leaves about 100W of headroom for that build's max power draw, but keep in mind if you upgrade in the future to more power hungry parts, you might want to consider getting a higher wattage PSU. Especially if you overclock. That 450W one is decent and so cheap, I wouldn't get a higher wattage one right now unless you find one of equal quality for about the same price (which isn't likely to happen).

That monitor is also freesync - which the 1080 doesn't support. Another option would be this which is on sale for $380 + tax right now. 1440p, 165Hz, 24", and has Gsync. Gsync prevents screen tearing when your fps drops below the frequency (Hz) your monitor operates at, and it only works with Nvidia cards. Freesync, which the acer above has, only works with AMD cards. It'll be very noticeable during cut scenes - lot of games cap fps during cut scenes to 30.

How low you want? $155? $180? Now granted these are a smaller side of monitors much like my original post but I personally don't care about the size of the monitor. My desk isn't very large so it's not too far from my face so bigger is actually more of a pain.

There's only 5 left when I posted this...possibly 4 depending on whether or not I cave.

Is G-Sync worth the extra tax? I'm dying and have been on the edge of buying a monitor for like 5 months...is this probably the best price I will get on a similar monitor?

u/Coooturtle · 4 pointsr/buildapc

How can you even justify it for yourself let alone your parents? Jokes aside, for cheaper than that price you can get a 1440p 165hz G-Sync 24in Monitor. Which is better in almost every way aside from the refresh rate, which is still really high. Older people tend to react better to higher resolution over higher refresh rates (Which this thing still also has). Also, the fact that it doesnt look like a gaming monitor means it might be easier to justify it to them.

u/nolvatron · 4 pointsr/buildapc

I believe he's talking about the S2417DG. It does go down to $350 regularly for the 24 inch, sometimes even below, but it looks to be $400 on amazon right now.

I used to own this monitor. While it's bang-for-buck on paper, the contrast is poor and colors weren't great (expected of a TN panel), mine had noticeable backlight bleeding, and sometimes the display would flicker when GSYNC was on while gaming.

That being said, it's still a great gaming monitor with very low latency. If you want GSYNC, you won't find a cheaper regional monitor with these specs. I wouldn't buy it if you plan on doing anything with it other than gaming, though.

If you're interested in a really in-depth review, rtings has one on this monitor.

u/Telicopter · 4 pointsr/Monitors

With the power of your GPU, I would go 1440p, but you can find a much better bundle and quality at around $500, maybe a little more.
For $600, I found this:
https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB271HU-bmiprz-2560x1440/dp/B06ZXZ3QBD
1440p, 144Hz (overclockable to 165 Hz), G-Sync, IPS, 4ms, 3 year warranty for $600. You could probably get it cheaper on Black Friday or something as well. And, if you don’t want this one, there are lots of other choices.

u/lazy-zebra · 4 pointsr/computers

Usb passthroughs are a more premium thing, and with a quick amazon search, I could not find one in your price range with a usb passthrough. You could always get a cheaper 1080p monitor, and get a usb hub

u/Carstellz · 4 pointsr/blackdesertonline

I would say that these 3 monitors are some of the best, if not the best that you could buy for 1080P gaming @144hz. I have owned all 3, and even used them back when I still had a GTX 1080 like you have. If you are on a budget, I would go with the Acer. If you have the money to spend and want an overall better monitor, then the Asus is the way to go. Not really a reason to buy the Zowie anymore IMO, for the price you might as well just spend a bit more and get the Asus (when I bought my Zowie, that current Asus model was not available). And trust me, you will not have a great overall experience playing 1440P BDO with a GTX 1080. Maybe if you have a 9th gen CPU it could be a little better. I have a GTX 2080 TI and I7 7700k and I can't pull 144fps/144hz in many places, especially not in NW/anything more than smallscale PVP.

This can be found cheaper on different sites: It is a great 1080p monitor, but with the GTX 980 you may want to save an extra $150-$200 for a quality 1440p monitor

I have heard mixed reviews about the BenQ. I personally have this Asus monitor and i absolutely love it. It has adjustable stand and has 3d stuff(I never use that). 144Hz rapid refresh rate and 1ms (GTG) response time. $248 on amazon. overall Id recommend it highly

27" 1440p IPS monitors cover a huge range of different products, from fairly basic ones like the Viewsonic VA2719-2K-SMHD @ $293 to mid-tier gaming ones like the Acer XF270HU @ $594 to higher-end gaming ones like the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG279Q @ $800, to professional graphic design ones like the EIZO CS2730-BK-CNX @ $2600 (j/k, Amazon's price is wrong, these are only $1800).

I have the same one except I bought it from Amazon for $250.52 shipped on Aug 14.

AFAIK, the only 1440p 144hz monitor is the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q

It's not 28", but it's 27" at least.

u/remossful · 4 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Same price at amazon.ca (CDN$ 325.00 + FS) if you don't want to buy it from newegg.ca

You could also possibly PM with MemoryExpress, which has it for $369.99 at the moment.

I got this monitor for around the same price and I love it. Mainly wanted to see if 144hz would really make a difference when playing FPS, and found that you can really see how much smoother it is. I originally got the Acer GN246HL from the amazon.ca deal for $200 and compared the two side by side, but the ViewSonic XG2401 really blew it out of the water when it came to colour and the adjustable stand.

With more research I found that the XG2401 is a really solidly rated monitor, and I highly recommend it to people looking for a reasonably priced Freesync monitor with decent colour for a TN panel.

u/CormacD123 · 4 pointsr/Monitors

Viewsonic XG2401 is your best bet at that budget with those specs. Comes with freesync too unless you have a nvidia card...

Your budget is too low for a proper 144Hz build. But even if it were higher, PUBG is still that unoptimized that proper performance can't be certain.

I have had great luck with ebay Manufacturer refurb monitors. I think its a great deal if you are sensitive to price.

u/drfoqui · 4 pointsr/buildapc

You're saying you want 60FPS at 1440p but the max resolution on that monitor is 1080p at 144hz. If you want what you wrote you want, you're saying you prefer a monitor with a max resolution of 2560x1440. You'll only get a 60hz one at that price range (this one, for example). Monitors that are 1440p at 144hz will be more expensive

Here is an Acer 1440p 144hz 25" monitor. Would this be the one? I'm in need of a new monitor as well, been eyeing the LG ultrawide 1440p ones but they're a tad out of my budget at the moment at $700+. Thanks for the suggestion!

As others have mentioned, youre gonna want to go with a 1440p monitor over a 4k unless you have a monstrously fast PC. Running games at less than native resolution can look shitty and running 4k at a decent framerate is still tough unless you have one of those brand new nVidia cards.

I have a 970 and can run most stuff at 1440p60 on high or ultra settings.

It looks fantastic. The only downside to TN panels is that they have a reduced viewing angle. Things get dark when you view it at a 30 degree angle, but I was never planning on having people watch my screen from an angle like that so it's not an issue.

u/julfdorf · 4 pointsr/buildapc

You want a FreeSync monitor for an RX 580, G-SYNC is only compatible with Nvidia graphic cards. FreeSync on the other hand are fully compatible with AMD, and also has limited compatibility with Nvidia.

Since you mentioned that the PC is mainly for competitive Fortnite in another post I highly recommend a TN monitor such as: Acer XFA240.

Reasons being: It's in your budget, I don't think 144hz vs 165hz will matter (I personally don't notice a significant difference), TN have faster "pixel response time" than other panel types (which matters a lot for competitive gaming), and you won't really notice any major difference between 144hz TN monitors due to almost all of them using the same panel, just different brands basically and the only difference are the technology "around it". And I'd say Acer, ViewSonic and AOC are the best when it comes to that.

Some other alternatives are the [ViewSonic XG2402] (https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-XG2402-FreeSync-Advanced-Ergonomics/dp/B075D1B4SV) and [ViewSonic XG240R] (https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-XG240R-FreeSync-Advanced-Ergonomics/dp/B07L53SFGG), if you want something more fancy with USB ports, but these are slightly more expensive. If you were thinking about the BenQ Zowie XL2411P, I'd say all of these are a much better choice.

u/Mcfly56 · 4 pointsr/PUBGXboxOne

If you're going to get a monitor get one with the best refresh rate (measured in hertz) you can afford. I have 2 different monitors

The 1080 I use has 144hz and I use this for pc gaming as 144hz vs 60hz is a huge difference with kb/m

I use this with my Xbox one X

Id say 60hz is plenty for console gaming and the 4k looks better but on pc the 144hz 1080>60hz 4k.

When I picked these up two years ago 4k 144hz monitors were like 1000$ and didn't want to spend that much for a monitor they may have dropped in price I'm not sure. If you can afford that that's probably you're best option.

Also I own it!

u/Ateious · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Which is better, this monitor or the Viewsonic XG2401?

u/PacoBedejo · 3 pointsr/starcitizen

First, I think ultra-wide setups (whether curved 21:9 or triple-monitor) won't be well-suited to Star Citizen. Unlike a standard First Person Shooter where you're scanning a primarily flat area, space exists all around you.

IMO, the best way to experience SC will be with a VR headset. But, being an MMO, I know that my play sessions might last as long as 12 hours. Given my desire to avoid headset-induced fungal/bacterial infections, I'm going for a great, large, single monitor.

Unfortunately, there isn't a monitor on the market which ticks all the boxes right now. Acer tried a 4K 144hz 32" G-Sync monitor, but the DisplayPort 1.3 they used couldn't carry the necessary bandwidth. Right now I'm using a 27" Dell 1440P 144hz and love it, but wish for a larger screen with similar or smaller pixel size.

According to techbuyersguru.com, monitor manufacturers aren't going to be re-attempting large + awesome again any time soon.

> THE 4K G-SYNC GAMING MONITOR:
>
> Acer Predator XB321HK
>
> We're keeping this monitor here as a placeholder, so readers realize that yes, we know a lot of you are on the lookout for a replacement to this venerable 32" 4K G-Sync monitor, the only one of its kind ever released. The issue with it was that with existing Displayport technology, it was impossible to achieve a refresh rate higher than 60Hz at 4K, and serious gaming rigs are now able to easily surpass that 60 frames per second, even at this extreme resolution. 4K refresh rates of 120Hz and above are coming with the new DisplayPort 1.4 standard, which has recently been adopted.
>
> THE GURU'S TIP:
>
> A new generation of 4K G-Sync monitors that exceed the 60Hz refresh rate will be arriving later this year. To learn more about this exciting new development, see our report on The Future of Display Tech from CES 2017. The only problem: for the foreseeable future, these monitors will be 27", so it's going to be several years before a true replacement for the XB321HK appears!

So, unfortunately, your best bet is probably the Acer Predator X34 for now. It's less "ultra-wide" than a triple-monitor setup, has good pixel size (same as 27" 16:9 1440P), and has an increased refresh rate (100hz). The Z35P could be alright too, if you prefer VA over IPS.

The shitty thing is; because it's ultra-wide, the 34" X34 is the same exact screen height as a 16:9 27" panel. You could get the ASUS ROG Swift 27" 16:9 for $375 less, have the same screen height (same usable screen area wearing in-game helmet), and have a faster refresh rate while drawing fewer pixels, increasing your GPU's FPS output. If you're cool with a TN panel, the $450 Dell S2716DG is hard to beat. You just won't be happy with the color reproduction.

So...just buy your pick of the 27" 1440p G-Sync monitors and be done with it for now. :(

Do your own research on panel types: TN -vs- IPS -vs- VA

u/Brostradamus_ · 3 pointsr/buildapc

For 1080p 60fps, you really only need a 580/1060 6GB. Anything beyond that is overkill--this build could knock $500 off and still do 1080p60fps in just about every game.

In my opinion, the 1070, VEGA 56, and VEGA 64 are all overpriced for what you get out of them. 1060 6GB or find a refurb/on sale 1080 if you feel like spending the extra money.

...For 700 fucking dollars you can get a 1080Ti instead of a VEGA 64. I've also made some other tweaks to your build to maximize performance and reduce wasted space/resources:

  • Don't need the extra cooler with a Ryzen 1600 as the cooler it comes with is quite good already.

  • Switched the case to a Define C, which is essentially a smaller version of the Define S, and will fit your build fine, unless you're adding a custom water loop. Tempered Glass side panel is badass too.

  • Smaller, Drastically cheaper Power Supply will do just fine.

  • Fit a 1080Ti in your budget.

u/LBGW_experiment · 3 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

Well, you have a few options. Depending on your price range, you can go with 2560x1080 which come in 25" (don't bother), 29" (sweet spot for ppi, same as 24"/25" 16:9 monitors), 34", or 35" (specifically the z35 for g-sync or xz35 for freesync). Benefit of 2560x1080 is being able to generally saturate the max refresh rate of your monitor, given the gpu you have and are going to buy. Only downside I can think of is with making such a long-term purchase as a monitor, you're "only" getting 1080p, but I don't really see that as an issue as others might. Also, most of these monitors only go up to 75hz, only the very high end cards reach any higher, and those are usually either g-sync for the acer x34 which goes to 100hz @ 1440p or the acer (x)z35 which goes to I think 144hz @ 1080p.

There are also 3440x1440 monitors and those usually only come in 34". I can't think of any other sizes, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, do you want curved or not? I don't have an ultrawide but I've been researching them for a couple years now and I think it comes down to the size of the monitor. I think 25" and 29" ultrawides are fine for being flat, since they're only so wide but once you get into 34" territory, it would be such a large screen that it is beneficial to have the curve, which is pretty much what the market really offers: no curved 25" or 29" and most, if not all, 34" are curved. The curve helps keep the same distance from each edge of the screen to your eyes the same. These do come at a higher price, though.

u/xexiled · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Sorry for the long response time. IPS panels have better colors and viewing angles. TN panels on the other hand have higher refresh rates and response times.

You have to pick one or the other at this price range though. I however prefer TN panels because I like the smooth 144hz refresh rates and 1ms response times. You on the other hand might want the better colors.

Here are some IPS monitors that are recommended often.


u/create-a-useraccount · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I would HIGHLY recommend getting an IPS LED display which can commonly be found for $100-$110. The Acer R240HY is on sale right now for $130. The colors are just so much more vibrant and accurate with an IPS display over TN. Downside of IPS is that they are more susceptible to backlight bleeding and on average, are slower than TN displays.

Acer predator XB241H fits the bill. Phenomenal monitor, 1080p 24" w/ Gsync and can OC up to 180hz

Just bought one myself after weeks of research. Save yourself the trouble and grab this one. Gsync is absolutely worth it if you don't think your setup will be able to handle the 144hz refresh rate of the monitor consistently. If you're okay lowering the settings to ensure you avoid stuttering/tearing, then by all means.

But, to me, <350 for all of those features is worth it.

So I had a pretty killer weekend.

The tablet I thought was totally toasted decided to work perfectly the second I'd given up on it.

Both discovered and binged the entirety of Gravity Falls, loved every second. One of the best shows I've seen period, immediately bought the physical copy of Journal 3. (so cheap too!)

My favorite episode is without a doubt S2 E8, Blendin's Game. [That episode](/s "I'm a sucker for time travel, and the butt-ton of sci-fi references, as well as the voice work of Justin Roiland, and that Soos backstory was an unexpected gutpunch, I cried like a child.")

Gotta give props to "Not What He Seems" as probably the most brilliant episode from a critical standpoint, thankfully I hadn't gotten spoiled on the big reveals and totally fell for the red herrings sprinkled through the first three quarters of the show.

The refund for my Monitor got credited, so I re-bought it and hopefully it comes this week so I can finally build my PC.

So shit's going pretty well for me this weekend.

I usually roll my eyes at the whole "post show depression" meme but I think I'll miss this one for a few days.

Are AMA's a thing, it's been a while for me so go for it I guess.

The real solution here - Best monitor for $300. Cheap IPS panels cannot compete with the best TN panel I've ever seen.

Budget? If you're looking for something affordable, look here: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-G257HU-smidpx-25-Inch-Widescreen/dp/B00QS0AKVK

But until we know your budget, it's hard to say what to recommend.

I have the AOC AGON 24'' 1440p 144hz. Freesync, bought originally to pair with my Vega 64. it is certifed gsync compatible as well. I bought a RTX2070 afterwards and yeah, gsync works just fine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WVN6CWT?psc=1

Dell makes a pure gsync 24'' 1440p 165hz, it goes on sale somewhat often: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Monitor-S2417DG-24-Inch-Response/dp/B01IOO4SGK haven't used this before, search the subreddit and you'll find many a thread

and that's it. literally nobody else makes high refresh rate monitors at this size/resolution. these are your options.

This pc is small enough to carry around in your back pack but strong enough to get ultra settings 60fps 1080p. I took into account your requests and gave my best shot at it. I'll start with the CPU. The ryzen 1500x can deliver on games and also is equipped with a stock clock of 3.5 ghz so you really don't have to overclock and comes with a pretty nice stock cooler. The motherboard includes wifi as an added bonus and the ram is a pretty fast 16gb ddr4 3000. The gpu is a 1070 which seems small but is actually pretty powerful when it comes to games. I managed to get a 480gb ssd for storage and a fully modular power supply for easy cable management. I really wouldn't overclock in a mitx build since they tend to get hot because of the small space.

Here's a monitor recommendation
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01H5KKQTM/?tag=pcp0f-20

Edit- also the corsair strafe mechanical keyboard is nice as well and if you need me to fit these two in the budget I can find a way

u/AFlaccoSeagulls · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Speaking from experience (playing Overwatch, Apex and Siege) 1440p is the complete opposite of too much. You should absolutely get a 144hz 1440p monitor.

For reference, this is the monitor I have.

EDIT: I also have a Ryzen 3600 (previously a 4790k) and a GTX 2070, and to get max frames with the right resolution you do need to have a good CPU/GPU combo.

u/Nornina · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

The one you linked is a TN panel.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZXZ3QBD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mPe3BbKQ9M4ED?th=1 is the same thing.

u/CherryBlossomStorm · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Decent deal for $1500. For monitors... 1440p 144hz https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DGR-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

u/MJC12 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

You're absolutely fine with 8GB of RAM, and will be for quite some time. Don't need a CPU cooler because that processor isn't overclockable. Look to /u/tcmvl 's comment for some good improvements. If you want to avoid the mail in rebate on that monitor, I highly suggest the monitor I got recently. It's on sale and I love it.

u/Unlikely_Username · 3 pointsr/reddeadredemption

I'd honestly look into getting a cheap 1080p monitor if I were you. 15 inches is tiny, and I'd assume HD-Ready means 720p. You could grab this pretty well reviewed HP 21.5 inch for $90, best seller on Amazon.

u/Adell021 · 3 pointsr/RandomActsOfGaming

I realized my monitor is about to give in (seriously, everything I own needs replacing. I just spent half my savings to have my PC fixed).

And a monitor is priority over headphones considering my line of work focuses on visuals rather than audio. On the minute chance that I win, I'm interested in the Acer Predator. A whole lot more expensive (at 1244$) than my original request but I'm really just tossing this out here. And it ships to the Philippines.

I do doubt I'll win, so I want to ask too... what are stocks? I am a clueless gal who barely considers herself an adult. I know I could look it up but I'd rather hear about it from someone who deals with it and (going by your generosity) has been successful with it.

Seriously though, man, generous giveaway. I'm sure you'll make someone very happy.

u/smile_e_face · 3 pointsr/Monitors

Right, crash course time. I'm not really into the fighting game scene, barring watching a few EVO matches, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that they use TN panels, which prioritize high refresh rate and low input lag over picture quality. That one you linked most certainly does. If you've been using a TN monitor for a while, I'm not surprised that your friend's Predator got you thinking.

For picture quality, you have two options for panels: IPS and VA. Some people will tell you that IPS is the only way, but those people are wrong. IPS monitors clearly win the areas of color quality / vibrancy and viewing angles; TN panels have awful color shifting when viewed off-center, and VA panels, while better, aren't fantastic. On the other hand, all IPS panels bring with them the dreaded "IPS glow," a soft, pale light from the corners visible in dark content.

VA panels, on the other hand, stomp the competition when it comes to contrast - compare ~500:1 for TN, ~1000:1 for IPS, and ~3000:1 for VA - making them an excellent choice for movies. Think the difference between LCD and plasma televisions, which is actually not far off, technologically speaking. But, they're incredibly slow - there are only a handful of VA panels available with refresh rates over 60 Hz - and not really suitable for fast-paced genres like FPS.

Also, consider that both IPS and VA panels have inferior response times and input lag, compared to TN. Almost all gamer-oriented TN panels have ~1ms response times, while IPS aim for ~4ms and VA are lucky if they get ~8ms. What this means is that things might seem a little sluggish when you start out; I emphasize "might" because some people, like me, don't care about the difference, and others don't even notice it. Manufacturers attempt to fix this problem by building "overdrive" into their monitors, essentially pouring more juice into the pixels to force better response times. As you might imagine, though, this comes with its own problems, including higher input lag and "overshoot," faint trails and blurs behind fast-moving objects. This one I do care about, and it's one of those things that once you see it, you can't stop seeing it. IPS panels can suffer from this problem, but VA is where it gets really nasty.

So, in summary, you have three options:

  • TN panels, which offer blazing speed and near-CRT levels of input lag, but often have poor colors, contrast, and viewing angles. This is almost certainly what you have right now.
  • IPS panels, which offer rich colors and almost perfect viewing angles, but have only middling response times and suffer from glow. This is what your friend has.
  • VA panels, which offer fantastic contrast and middle-of-the-road colors and viewing angles, but have low refresh rates and often suffer from input lag and overshoot.

    There are also other features that you might want to consider, but if you're not into PC gaming in a big way, they might be a waste. A few:

  • 1440p+ resolution. This one can be nice even if you don't game. Higher resolution makes for a clearer, crisper picture, but does significantly decrease performance in games and can flummux Windows' and Linux's UI scaling to this day. Still worth it, in my opinion. Do note that the best resolutions for each screen size are probably: 1080p for 24", 1440p for 27", 4K for anything bigger.
  • 21:9 aspect ratio ("ultra-widescreen"). I haven't used this one myself, but I hear it's pretty great, especially for games and movies. For applications, it might not perfectly replace two monitors, simply because you can't do things like full-screen a video on one monitor and work on another. It's up to you on that one.
  • 120+ Hz. Fast refresh rates allow for more fluid gameplay, provided your graphics card can hack it. That 780 is a bit long in the tooth for this, at least with recent titles. In addition, 120 Hz offers a neat bonus: it's a perfect multiple of both 24 Hz and 30 Hz, which means it will eliminate judder in nearly all media.
  • G-SYNC / FreeSync. Designed by NVIDIA and AMD, respectively, these technologies sync your display's refresh rate with your graphics card. What this means is that you can experience tear-free, buttery smooth gameplay without having to enable VSync and all the input lag nightmares that come with it. Note that, while FreeSync monitors are often competitively priced, G-SYNC adds a hefty tax, and you can't use one company's tech with the other company's graphics cards.

    Well, that's just about all you really need to know about finding a new monitor. As for suggestions, I don't really keep up with all the latest models and whatnot, so I'll leave that to others. The Predator is an excellent monitor, though. If you liked your friend's so much, why not get one yourself? It's right in the middle of your budget at ~$750, and includes all of the neat features above, minus 21:9. For $50 more, the ASUS PG279Q offers a similar experience with maybe juuuust a bit better colors. Finally, Acer also offers the 34-inch, IPS, 21:9, curved XR341CK for ~$840, which is...just...wow...really quite a...reasonable price...hmmmm. There's also the G-SYNC-enabled X34, but that $400 premium is absurd.

    Well, I know that was long, but I hope it helped. I just think it's always best to know what you're looking for, rather than just following some random recommendations. If you've got any questions, it's my long weekend, so ask away.
u/Ruhlmdc · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Por que no los dos? That's what I found myself getting when asking myself the same question. If I did have to choose between the 2, I'd have a tough time deciding. The 1440p looks great for games, but the smoothness of higher than 60fps is also great.

u/SadFaceCabbageMan · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales
u/Patate_ · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If the 27" is not that important heres a good 144hz monitor.

u/Gpont · 3 pointsr/MLBTheShow

There is a reddit for monitor help maybe he meant you were asking unrelated to The Show

​

Anyway, this is what i have had for awhile

https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VG248QE-1920x1080-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=asus+monitor&qid=1574814809&sr=8-6

​

Asus is a good brand imo basically you are looking for anything with a really low response time like this one is 1 ms.. I will say that getting cheaper faster monitor means that you sacrifice on coloring a bit like for me this monitor took some tweaking out of the box but i am happy with it.

​

Note im not saying this is the best monitor its just the only one I have used and I have enjoyed it.. You could do further research on monitors based off these specs because im sure they have newer models that are better.

I don't remember how current the discussions I was looking at were but I'm in the market for a 144hz (w/ Freesync if possible) display as well and I've heard praise of the ViewSonic XG2401. Since, I'm assuming, this is a more knowledgeable community (than buildapc/sales) could anyone share their insight on this display and the ones that OP has linked?

u/vergingalactic · 3 pointsr/hfr

Hi,

For starters your config is best suited for 1440p60Hz.

Unless you're looking at overclockable korean A- monitors which I don't recommend then 1440p is off the table at $250.

Cheapest you're going to get at 1440p:

ASUS PB277Q 75Hz TN - $320

Dell S2417DG 144Hz TN- $400

You can look at 1080p ultrawide 21:9 monitors that support 75Hz if you want.

This LG is about the best you're going to get:
http://www.ncixus.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=126877&promoid=1120

1080p 16:9 though gives you a lot more options.

At 1080p for the best experience I recommend forgoing the 1070 in favor of a RX 480 as the former is a little overkill at 1080p.

144Hz is very CPU demanding so I highly recommend going for a Core i7-6700k right now or Zen if you can wait a month / month and a half or so.

Having an i7/Zen with a RX 480 means that 1080p 144Hz with FreeSync is the way to go.

I recommend the AOC G2060PF 1080p 144Hz TN w/FreeSync at $200.

Here's a review.

Thanks for the question, let me know if you have any others.

u/ParkerPetrov · 3 pointsr/Monitors

I would probably go with the following as the color looked pretty good for a tn panel when I saw it. I only tested it in store, so i have no longterm usage data. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-27-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor-S2719DGF/dp/B00N2L5CXO

u/D3rptastic · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Can anyone speak to the quality difference between this and the S2719DGF? I know the 19 is newer and has FreeSync instead of G-SYNC. I have an Nvidia card for what it’s worth but as I understand it those can also use FreeSync

It’s $320 on Amazon so if the screen quality or something is significantly better I’d rather go for that

u/KuroWTF · 3 pointsr/buildapc

freesync adds little to no cost to the monitor, unlike gsync, in fact, theres a good $200 freesync 144hz monitor (here) and then theres this one without freesync or gsync, but pretty much everything else is the same for $250 (here)

u/DarraignTheSane · 3 pointsr/technology

Yeah, the freesync is the kicker, I guess I was off by a bit. Cheapest from a quick search is $200:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BV1XBEI

So, only at least $1000 premium for having no bezel. Still, at the $1500 price point, you'd still be much better off with a triple monitor setup.

u/TheTrufeisHere · 3 pointsr/battlestations
u/RexlanVonSquish · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I personally would go for either the AOC 2460PF or the Acer XFA240

I have the predecessor to the Acer XFA240 (Mine is the XF240H) and it hasn't let me down yet after a year's worth of hard work. It did take a lot of color adjusting out-of-the-box to make it look passable, but such is the downfall of TN panels.

Also, check out ProductChart.com if your budget is wider than $200. You can filter monitors based on size, resolution, refresh rate, included features, and so on. It's nice, and it helped me ultimately decide on the Acer monitor I mentioned.

u/esskay04 · 3 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

Any opinions on which 144Hz monitors are bestfor overwatch. With some research I find that these two get mentioned quite a bit:

u/Luminaria19 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If you don't really need the extra 2 inches, this is quite a bit cheaper.

u/TrapStar11690 · 3 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

I use this:
https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-XL2411-Professional-1920x1080-Response/dp/B01H5KKQTM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498418885&sr=8-1&keywords=zowie+144hz+monitor

This is basic, the build is extremely sturdy, and it has been running well for many months now. The blur reduction is nice. It sets the led's to the refresh rate at the expense of some backlight brightness, which works out if you are not playing in a fully lit room as it would be too bright for most gamers' comfortable level of light

One criticism I can think of, if any, is that the case isn't perfectly rectangular so if you have two of them it wont look like some kind of long black bar or something because there is an aesthetically pleasing corner where the buttons are placed that you can see in the picture . But it's a monitor that looks like it wont break and seems to be used by many pros

u/whatdidshedo · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

freesync if you can .. it's not much difference in price anyway , if you have compatible amd card , prices are going down, even acer XG270HU 1440P 144HZ FREESYNC IS $350 now

u/ryanhd6950 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'd say go for 1440p 144hz G-Sync, it's a good middle ground resolution and you will LOVE the increased refresh rate. Check out the Asus ROG Swift

u/hutchkinss · 3 pointsr/Monitors

1080p (Non-Gsync):https://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-1920x1080-144Hz-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1501114037&sr=1-4&keywords=gsync+monitor

Note: If you pretty much only play csgo there's no need to get a gsync monitor as those cost much more and gsync is disabled when the game goes above the monitor's refresh rate. Your 1060 will play csgo at well over 144 fps even at 1440p. If you plan on playing "beefier" games at 1440p gsync is recomended.

u/BTdemon · 3 pointsr/Monitors

I would recommend the Asus PB278Q. I have a few of them and they work wonderfully. It has HDMI 1.4 and works beautifully at 2560x1440.

u/ComradeShyGuy · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

4k is 4x the resolution of 1080. It doesn't matter the size of the monitor in corresponding to resolution and graphics power. 24 or 27 at 4k won't matter. It'd be the same number of pixels the gpu needs to render. Only thing that chances is the pixel density, but depending on how far you sit back, it may not matter.

I think if you want to stay at 24, I think 1440p would be good for you.

Might want to look into this monitor

Replaced the 4770k with the 3820 and a gigabyte up4. They're better for sli set ups, especially with your budget.The 840 pro is a better option for an ssd than the 830. I took out the network adapter, because it shouldn't be needed. The 32 gb of ram is pointless, and dominator platinum is way overpriced, 16 gigs should work fine. A 850 watt power supply will work fine with your setup. The asus blu-ray reader is cheaper, but you should also consider a regular $17 dvd reader, as it will do everything perfectly, unless you want to watch blu-rays on your computer.

With the sound card and speakers, I'm fairly certain you don't need $400 speakers, unless you are an audiophile, but you can add them back if you do want them. Without the speakers though, you shouldn't need the sound card, as the mobo's sound should be fine. If you want to get a good headset or speakers, you can add the sound card back in, or go for one of asus's xonar sound cards.

Instead of 2 144hz monitors, I gave you 3 60hz monitors for if you want to go with a multi-monitor set up. I would highly recommend going with this 1440p monitor instead, but either monitor set up should work.

I wasn't sure about the mouse, but the logitech G500 is supposed to be a very good mouse, but I recommend you do a bit of research to find out what you want. The Ducky shine 2 is a very good mech keyboard at the same price as the k95. I do recommend checking out /r/mechanicalkeyboards to do some research on some good mech keyboards, and to decide what kind of switch you want for it.

And for your question about ips for gaming, there is nothing wrong with ips. TN panels generally have a faster response time, but it's not buy much. And the shit picture quality of TN panels makes it not even close to being worth it. Ips is 10/10 the way to go.

Looks like the same one is on Amazon for the same price. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0


Can anyone provide info if this is a good one or not? Looking to buy a monitor in the next 2 weeks 1440p/144hz under 500.

u/hanotak · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I'm using a 1080 with a 144hz 1440p G-Sync monitor, and it's perfect. I'd aim for that combination.

This is the one I use. It often goes on sale <$400.

There's also a 24 inch 165hz variant, if you prefer smaller monitors.

u/curtise35 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I think most of this sub is in agreement that a higher refresh rate monitor is better for gaming than a higher resolution monitor. Look for a 1440p 144hz monitor with gsync. Dell makes a classy looking one. Though I'm sure you can find something cheaper than $600.

With this budget you should be getting something from the top tier of PSUs. Any of EVGA G2, Corsair AX, or Seasonic Platinum series 650W+. [Consider this one.] (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9q4NnQ/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1) Though I would really like to see something like this in there.

edit: A note for that case: it comes with the three front LED fans only. No exhaust fan(s) included. You'll definitely want to buy at least one extra of those fans to use as exhaust. This is the exact fan that comes with the case. The LED hub can support up to 6. Your MOBO probably doesn't have 6 fan headers though, so look into a solution for that if you end up getting a total of 6 fans. Your CPU cooler will need at least one fan and it won't be LED unless you buy one. With an all glass case you might want all your fans to be uniform LED. The fans are bad ass and I love that case.

Also with a glass case you might be interested in braided power cables that look a lot nicer than generic PSU cables. Check out cablemod. Also a lot easier to work with.

I must say it's very enjoyable working with high budget builds. I get to recommend all the cool stuff.

u/jjrmm7 · 3 pointsr/Monitors

According to the questions section on Amazon "There's an option in the menu to overclock to 150, 155, 160, and 165 Hz. And the included DP cable is capable of handling 1440p at 165 Hz" but I could be wrong

u/CptnObservant · 3 pointsr/buildapc

S2716DG. Definitely recommend as well. It's a bit more expensive than some of the competition, but the higher quality will easily last you 8-12 years

u/CainMosni- · 3 pointsr/Monitors

I'm interested in hearing opinions about this monitor too. I was looking at the S2716DG, but couldn't get BestBuy to pricematch the MicroCenter deal for $400.

At first glance, the Asus VZ27AQ looks like a solid 27" 1440 IPS monitor. It doesn't look like it has VESA mounts though.

I mean if you have the means to do so I would suggest an x34 Predator. It's an ultra wide monitor which is incredibly immersive and the 1070 is enough to run it. Once you go 21:9, you'll never go back to 16:9.

u/Ghost1y · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I have this monitor and cannot recommend it highly enough. Here's a marginally better priced Amazon link.

The one thing is the colors aren't great out of the box, but if you google it, you can find some color profiles/settings on Tom's Hardware that look good.

It really is awesome. I got a 144Hz monitor last week and it really has shown me what I have been missing out on. I was playing CS:GO and was flat out blown away at the smoothness.

Not to mention how fluid everything moves now in comparison to my work monitor.

I don't know if it's the "best bang-for-your-buck" monitor you're looking for, but this is what I'm using and I really love it.
ViewSonic XG2401
It's currently out of stock on Amazon but usually sells for around $330. I think I bought it for $290 on sale but I know it's gone lower.
It's a TN monitor, 144 Hz, 24", and the stand allows it to tilt/rotate and is VESA ready.
I have it mounted on a VIVO dual monitor arm stand with a ViewSonic VA2459-SMH monitor.
Again, don't know if it's what you're looking for, but I thought I'd share.

Edit: Might also want to check out the XG2402. I believe that's the newer version of the XG2401. Around the same $330 price tag I think.

u/freespace303 · 3 pointsr/Monitors

You sure you're not willing to consider 1440p? Because at your budget ($372 usd) 27" 1440p 144hz monitors can be had all day long. If not, I listed some 1080p monitors below as well.

Since you have an Nvidia card, My first choice for you would be the Dell Gsync S2716DGR, which goes on sale for less than $400 all the time. It's pretty much the only Gsync 27" for under $400 consistently. Keep an eye on /r/buildapcsales for the best deals.

After using 2 freesync and 2 gsync monitors, I can't go back. The elimination of stutter/tearing is completely worth it IMO. Framerate dips and spikes are smoothed over as well, making for a very consistant experience.

Also, here are a bunch of Freesync 27" 1440p 144hz choices to consider...

Pixio PX276 - $310/250€

Acer XG270HU - $350

G-Story GS27QR - $330

ASUS PB278Q - $353

Monoprice 124657 - $340

If you insist on sticking to 1080p, here are a few options, all 144hz

Pixio PX325c - 32" - $350

Viotek GN32C - 32"- $300

ViewSonic VX2758-C-MH - 27" - $250

Acer ED273 - 27" - $254

I also recommend checking these sites out, they both have comprehensive lists of the best gaming monitors out right now.

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/sw1nglinestapler · 3 pointsr/buildapc

If you're on a budget, this 24" AOC free sync monitor is great bang for the buck. The colors need calibration out of the box but once it's up and running it's really nice. High refresh rate + adaptive sync is hard to live without once you've experienced it. Even vsync'd 60hz doesn't really compare.

u/Jmar64 · 3 pointsr/Amd

I'm new to building but this monitor that I chose is the AOC G2460PF that says 144hz Dvi dual link and dp only. Does this mean I need the dual link active adapter as well? This is the Monitor.

u/Slinkwyde · 3 pointsr/Dell

Before the XPS 13, I used 15" laptops by themselves. This time around, I wanted to try something different: something small, lightweight, and with good battery life while I'm on the go, but with a desktop-like experience when I'm at my desk. That's why I chose to buy an XPS 13 9350 and a WD15 (Dell's USB-C Dock). By plugging in a single cable into my laptop's USB-C port (laptop to dock), I connect my laptop to a 25" 1440p monitor, a mechanical keyboard, a mouse, power (USB-C can provide up to 100 watts of power), headphones, a microphone, a backup SSD, and a micro USB cable (for phone, Xbox One controller for emulation, etc). I also have a highly adjustable office chair with great back support. Then when I want to take the laptop somewhere, I unplug that one single cable, put the laptop in a perfectly sized sleeve/bag hybrid, and go. It's a rather nice setup, especially now that Dell addressed my USB-C stability issues in a recent BIOS update (version 1.4.4 that came out a few days ago).

You make a good point about charging all the time being bad for the battery, but the dock /desktop mode is a core part of my setup and there's not a way to use the dock without it charging the laptop. I suppose I could start unplugging the laptop from the dock each night before I go to bed. That won't entirely fix the problem, but it should help some while still giving me the benefits of the dock.

u/IsThisAGoodNameOrNot · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Personally I would prefer this one. Only 24 inches as opposed to 27, but better response time and 144Hz for when you get your PC

Edit: words

u/TheBigreenmonster · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Yeah, I paid $200 for my freesync monitor.

If you aren't going to be stressing these gpu's why are you looking at this price point? You could easily get under $200 by going with a slightly older card.

u/smokedironmade · 3 pointsr/buildapc
u/TempOWThrowaway · 3 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

First of all, is your laptop running a GTX 970 or a GTX 970M. It's probably a 970M.

In general, the best investment for a competitive shooter like Overwatch when it comes to monitors is going to be a 1080p 144hz monitor with G Sync (because you run NVIDIA). Ignore input lag ratings, as all monitors are going to have imperceptible input lag outside of framerate.

It being 144hz is the only real performance improvement, with the rest just being how good the game will look (resolution, panel size, panel type, contrast ratios, etc). Going higher than 1080p is inadvisable unless you have an awfully impressive GPU setup or want higher resolution at the cost of hitting rock bottom effects settings on your GTX 970M.

On low-medium settings, your GPU should be able to run 1080p 144hz Overwatch on a monitor like this.

u/RicePower90 · 3 pointsr/laptops

I've had mine for about a month and I'm also in college as well.


  • Battery life is absolute shit, the battery lasts about 3 hours on a full charge, turning on battery saver doesn't seem to help that much. If you ever get this, just make sure you have your charger at all times.

  • This build quality is nice, doesn't feel like some cheap laptop, as it should be cause its 1000 dollars. As I said I've only had it for about a month but everything works fine so far. The webcam doesn't seem to work when I got mine but I don't need it anyway so I didn't bother to get mine replaced, plus I like to have it off.

  • I don't really know much about screen quality, for me every monitor seems the same lel. I have a Benq gaming monitor that I use most of the time with my main rig and I honestly can't see the difference between that and this laptop display, and apprently people say the screen quality for that monitor isnt the best, sooo yea.

  • Thermals seems fine. CPU idle temps at 42 and GPU idle temps at 39. I haven't had long gaming sessions on this device so I don't really know how the thermals will be in-game. Although I did test it out on fortnite when I got it for around 10 mins and the temps seems to be in the mid to high 70s.

  • I don't really know what the differences from a k570 is but looking at the specs the k571 is just a upgraded version of the k570.


    I don't use this machine for video editing and haven't really used it for gaming yet. But with an i7-9750H and 16 GB of Ram paired with a GTX 1650 you should be fine with whatever you are doing. The 120HZ Screen will be amazing for gaming. Oh and also the battery seems to charge pretty fast. Overall this is a pretty good laptop but if all you want is raw performance, there are cheaper laptops out there with a GTX 1060 that will have better performance.

No VESA mount and the stand does the bare minimum of keeping the monitor upright but I expected that for the price

u/scraynes · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Sure. See below.

ASUS VG248QE - This is what I have, because I got it for $188 from Best Buy. Best buy tends to usually have a good deal on this monitor, so keep an eye on that.

The famous BenQ XL2411 - I've heard this is the best 144 on the market. I've never used it per say, but I love the design but it's not worth the extra money(I got my other one for much much cheaper) so I never got to use this.

Acer GN246HL - This is a very low-end 144hz and some people have it, but it doesn't have much with it (adjustments etc).

The Asus one is heavy, so if you use monitor mounts, make sure they're secure.

u/TheFrenchAreAssholes · 3 pointsr/Amd

[This] (http://www.amazon.com/Acer-XG270HU-omidpx-FREESYNC-Widescreen/dp/B00VRCLHYS) should be what you're looking for. Granted, it's twice the price. It's a pretty good monitor, though; I have one.

It's certainly powerful enough, but as a fellow web designer I don't think any of Apple's portables have enough screen space to comfortably design / develop. Get a 13" MBP, then buy the nicest monitor you can afford -- I don't know your budget, but I'd suggest a 1440p 27" screen like this one.

Gaming headsets don't do much compared to real headphones besides the looks and comfort that they give you (is they offer comfort) get ATH M50x. They are nice headphones at $150 they sound really nice, get an AMP if you want better quality in the sound. The way they make 7.1 audio is that they use software. You can use Microsofts 7.1 audio (only in the newest update of Windows 10) or you can use Razer's 7.1 FREE 7.1 audio software. Does the Motherboards I/O please you? Why don't you get it on water. The RAM is at a good speed (the sweet spot of RAM speeds). Look at cases like the DeepCool Genome and the Corsair 570x case. Those are cases that I think look cool at a similar price (the DepoCool Genome comes with a CPU water cooler with a reservoir and 3 fan radiator pre installed).
Edit: 144Hz in 1440p is really nice and you will love it. Dell makes a 1440p 144Hz monitor too that looks nice and professional and it is 27 inches. Right now the monitor cost less in Dells website, the only thing that is bad is pixel inversion but you can enable ULMB. This monitor has the nicest stand I have ever seen even and it is really nice. You can't make a better stand then this one. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IOO4SGK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apis_1499057239133

get a 144hz if you: can afford it, get easily above 144 fps in cs. The difference is significantly smoother and well worth it (you can see the difference just by dragging your mouse across the desktop). I recommend this one by asus. Good color and one of the cheaper ones out there.

u/MrShnickles · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Most people seem to like the settings listed on the top Amazon Review.

u/Zimmerel · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I would head over to r/monitors for a ton of good advice. Some quick tips would be pay attention to resolution, your 1070 should have no trouble running 1440p which a step up from many common HD TVs and monitors. Next is refresh rate. Higher refresh rate, put simply, makes most things much smoother. I'm not 100% but you should be able to play plenty of games @ 144hz with slightly lessened graphics settings. I run a 1080 with 1440p @144hz and that card is only a step above yours.

My monitor is the https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0. It can regularly be found on sale for ~$450 USA. Another thing to look out for is TN vs IPS which are common types of panels monitors use. TN is known for having lesser colors and viewing angles but is vastly cheaper and doesn't suffer from the many quality control issues that IPS monitors do. Just check out some amazon reviews on popular IPS models. Not saying they aren't fantastic looking, but you will pay more and there's a chance you'll have to send it back a few times. My monitor is a TN and it looks and plays incredibly. If you go with this one, download anow aftermarket color profile.

Lastly, G Sync. It basically is there to remove screen splitting. It's a great feature but you will pay more for it. Makes game play buttery smooth and pairs well with a high refresh rate monitor. Freesync is AMD's version so look out for that because you don't want to be paying for a feature you can't utilize. You want G Sync for a Nvidia card.

Hope this helps!

Get the Asus VG248QE.

I'm not 100% if it's within your budget of 300 € since I'm just using Google's USD to Euro converter.

Also G-Sync/Free Sync doesn't really do anything other than dynamically change the refresh rate of the monitor and gets rid of screen tearing.

For an extra 50$ you can get a 144hz monitor

For about 470$ you can get a Dell S2716DG (I think that’s the right numbers) which is 27 inches, 144hz, gsync, and 1440p. The 24 inch model is only about 360$ with 144hz, G-Sync and 1440p.

I wouldn’t pay 480$ for a 1080p 24in monitor when that starts getting into the 1440p 27in price range.

Edit:

Here’s one of the Amazon offers for the 27in Dell-

Also, It depends on how much your gpu can handle at that res/what settings you hope to play on. I see why you’d want a 1080p over a 1440p.

It depends what games you play. If you play FPS, I would recommend a mouse that has 500-1000 Polling rate. Polling rate is basically the delay between your mice and monitor. This delay is measured in milliseconds. Resources: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mouse_Polling_Rate
https://www.google.com/#q=what+is+polling+rate

If you are worrying about DPI, it is just a measurement of sensitivity the mice has.
DPI: Dots per inch

I would recommend there being the smallest delay between your mouse and monitor in FPS games.

In a scientific point of view, when you move your mouse with 250 polling rate, it will take 4 ms (milliseconds) to input that into your computer. This delay may limit your actual ability to aim by, essentially, four milliseconds.
Not only that, right after your mouse sends this input, now your monitor has to refresh and display this input for you. Low response time monitors help greatly to this because it simply lowers the delay.

u/bradd93 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

You are going to need to choose between ips and 120hz at that price range. Dell makes some great ips panels like this one. Otherwise you can look at a TN panel for faster refresh rates. I know this asus is highly recommended on here. Either are great options around your price range. Read up on reviews and just pick one. Good Luck!

u/Aztechnology · 3 pointsr/nvidia

I'm not sure why given all the available information you think it doesn't increase the cost. But sure

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/g-sync/diy

Nvidia was selling these at $200 +S&H. We can pretty easily extrapolate this to the increased cost of Gsync monitors.

In addition we can easily extrapolate from the cost of identical models that do or don't have G-sync.

Freesync: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Curved-34-inch-UltraWide-Display/dp/B0111MRT90

Gsync: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-UltraWide-Widescreen-X34/dp/B016GNX4SE

Part of this cost is also reflective of market cost, but the difference margin on most monitors that are the same model aside from the type of sync is around $200-300 dollars. Which would imply the module cost in these circumstances.

u/victorywei · 3 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

$1400? For this X34? Or is there a different one?

u/TaedusPrime · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Since budget isn't a big issue here there isn't much to change unless you want some opinions on another case or something. The nzxt s340 elite or phanteks evolv atx tempered glass are more updated cases and would look slot better built.

You don't need a 1000w pay but meh, it'll last you for this or any other foreseeable build lol.

Other the the case ideas, looks amazing.

Edit: now that I see it. Consider a 34 inch ultrawide gsync option. Gives you slot of screen real estate but without 3 monitors and will give you a much better gaming experience with that 1080ti.

I use this and it's pretty much the best purchase I've made in a while.

GSYNC is expensive, if you have that kind of disposable income do it. As far as 144hz goes, there's no going back from that smoothness.

Honestly, right now the sweet spot is 1440p 144hz ... slowly coming down in price. When it comes down in price this is my next purchase https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

I wouldn't worry about 4k gaming unless it's a really big importance to you. If you need to upgrade now, 144hz is where it's at. If you can spot some extra cash, 1440p 144hz. GSYNC is pretty amazing though, from my understanding it eliminates tearing and gives the smoothest gameplay possible, something that could be helpful for PUBG as it grows. Hope that helps

Any monitor is more than sufficient to the game on, especially when the average response is 8-5ms. TV's are perhaps the worst since they get as high as 30 or even 40ms.

u/hotchrisbfries · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I bought an ASUS VG248QE 24-Inch Screen LED-lit Monitor and yes, the colors out of the box are HORRENDOUS. But that can easily be fixed with the right ICC color profile. I found mine with a quick google search. I've never had an IPS panel, so if that is what you're comparing too I can't make any recommendations.

The other really nice thing with 120Hz or 144Hz panels is the almost complete lack of motion blur. LightBoost monitors have a strobe backlight feature that completely eliminate motion blur for 2D; for CRT-quality perfectly sharp fast motion on LCD. Usually this is only for 3D, but you can turn it on with a simple background app. It makes everything from your desktop to gaming incredibly smooth with zero ghosting.

The app I use is here: http://www.blurbusters.com/zero-motion-blur/lightboost/

So unless color accuracy is a huge deal for you (professional photography, video editing, etc..) the advantage to having 120Hz and virtually no motion blur is a big upside for gaming. Not to forget that you can also get Nvidia's G-Sync installation kit, provided that you use an Nvidia card.

This setup will do okay at 1440p/144hz, but unless you are really determined to go AMD I would recommend using a more powerful nvidia card.

I would start by calling my local costco and asking if any stores in my region have the Acer Predator xb271hu in stock. That monitor is currently on sale for $500 at costco because they are clearing out their inventory. If you can get that acer panel (its gsync) then use the money you saved to get a gtx1070 to go with it.

I currently have that acer predator monitor paired with a gtx 1070 and a 7700k. I get ~90-100 fps on BF1 64 player games with ultra settings, and ~140 fps on the mix of medium/high settings that I usually play with.

Yes! Threadripper is not meant for gaming. It is for productivity. Ryzen 2700x will be more than enough for you. If you want, you can buy the overpriced 8700K.

>Monitor (4K required?) - I would prefer at least 2K or above with good color accuracy. Preferably IPS panels and good connectivity (DP 1.4, HDMI 2.0 - if possible)

4K gaming is pretty useless. Better get 1440p 144hz monitor.

u/Anti_SeaBear_Circle · 3 pointsr/buildapc

There's some differences between these monitors that are fairly important. The Acer is an IPS monitor, while the BenQ is TN. TN is older technology, but is usually able to boast better response times, which in general is better for gaming. The BenQ you have listed is 2ms response time. The Acer has a response time of 5ms.

However, IPS monitors have way, way better viewing angles, and are better at color reproduction, which generally make things look nicer (and as a personal anecdote, make things seem "brighter").

Basically it's a choice of whether you want the slightly faster response time vs the IPS panel. I have 2 of the Acer monitors, because they have a very small bezel they look good in a dual monitor setup. However, I swapped one out for a 144hz monitor and I'm not going back to 60hz. It's obviously more expensive, but if you're going to drop $500-1000 on a computer, you shouldn't be bottlenecked at the monitor.

I haven't seen any expensive difference between freesync and non-freesync monitors.


You might be talking about G-Sync, those are the expensive ones.

Edit:
Sorry I thought you are talking about: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB271HU-27-inch-Widescreen/dp/B0173PEX20

The technology you have in what you bought is similar to the one in the one above, except there is no added cost, so you can't really say you paid for freesync, you paid for a high-end TN panel, freesync is just bonus.

I suspect you are a troll because if you know how to OC your video card and know Fallout 4 is limited to 30FPS by your monitor and not by something else, you do know how the monitor works. I apologise if you actually don't know how to troubleshoot this problem, you don't seem like you would have trouble doing it.

Use DDU(display driver uninstaller) to remove current drivers, reinstall latest version after. Connect monitor with display port cable in the package to you video card and set virtual super resolution to On in amd crimson. By this time Freesync option should be On in amd crimson. Now in amd crimson you have to go and limit fps to "desired refresh rate"-2, as most guides say, in order to make sure your monitor always stays in the freesync range. Also check that in windows dispay options at advanced to have your desired refresh rate selected. Search google for ufotest to be 100% sure at what refresh rate your monitor works to rule that out. Now download windmill test for freesync and make sure you see a difference with freesync on/off and vsync on/off. You have to see tearing and no tearing while cycling through them. If you still have it not working, I'd say you should return it or rma it because it's a faulty monitor.

u/TheAShorter · 3 pointsr/GlobalOffensiveTrade

I have both an ASUS and BenQ monitor (that I use for my Xbox. Yes, I'm a console peasant at times)


The ASUS is an VG248QE - 144hz, 1920x1080, 1 ms response etcetera. amazon link


The BenQ is an RL2455HM which is only 60hz but that's all I need for console. Everything is similar between the monitors except for refresh rate. link to an XL series monitor


My only complaint about the ASUS is that the menus for adjusting picture can be slightly confusing at first if you haven't used one before. The BenQ I have is NOT the XL series, but from what I have seen the picture menu is very similar between the XL and RL series (which I have) - VERY simple and easy to operate.


Prices are similar on Amazon, with the BenQ being about $20 more - the biggest difference is the menu operation, which is slightly more simple on the BenQ monitors.


Overall - if you want to spend a little extra for a simple menu go with a BenQ XL series, if you don't mind figuring out the menu for a cheaper monitor go with the ASUS.

I recently bought a new monitor and did a ton of research and ended up buying the Viewsonic XG2401 which is widely regarded as the best 144Hz, 1080p monitor and I'm very pleased with it, it's a joy to game on. Personally I feel 1440p is pointless, unless you have a monster PC because you'll want to be hitting at least 100fps with a 144Hz monitor and that's much easier to achieve at 1080p.

u/Uncle_Blayzer · 3 pointsr/battlestations

I think the best choice for you would be a 24" 1080p 144hz monitor. With your build, you'll be able to play new games on maximum graphics settings for years to come at this resolution, and you'lll be able to take full advantage of the refresh rate. You should be getting well over 100FPS in games like Borderlands. Furthermore, a top of the line monitor with these specifications shouldn't break your budget. I'm not sure if prices are higher in the UK, but you can get a top of the line one in the U.S. for around $200, which is roughly £150.


Keep in mind that many 144hz monitors are set to 60hz as the factory default, so you may need to open the menu with the physical buttons on the monitor and switch the refresh rate to 144hz. You'll also likely need to enable this in your display settings on your PC. It's a simple process you'll be able to figure out with a quick google search.


Of course, there are a lot of subjective factors to choosing a monitor that have to do with personal preference as well. I'd suggest asking your boyfriend what size his monitor is if you don't know already. You may decide you want something larger if that's what you're already accustomed to.

With SLI 980's I'd definitely go for the ROG Swift over the PB278Q.

I have the PB278Q (PB278QR actually) and it's as great display. While it's not 144hz and doesn't have G sync it's perfect for my use as I do a lot of color-critical photography and retouching work in Photoshop.

I went with a single GTX 970 which is more than good enough for ~60fps with the PB278Q. With your pair of SLI'd 980s you should consider the ASUS ROG Swift which would be the perfect match for your GPU setup. I personally would never pay that much money for a TN panel even with G sync and 144hz but again, that's me and I have different needs.

If you want you can go 4K as well but 4K on a 28-inch display means very, very tiny text given the amount of pixels. Go have a look at one first before you decide on getting one. 1440p would be more practical for gaming anyway!

u/Cjprice9 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Do you really need a sound card? Your motherboard will likely have a pretty good one in there already. That $250 is very expensive, either save the money or use it for a better GPU.

That monitor is a good one, however since you're using an AMD card, I recommend this one instead. It costs about the same, and has freesync, along with the 1080p and 144hz.

That motherboard is a bit pricy for the sort of build you're doing. You could shave off ~$50 from your overall price there.

I'd recommend shaving some price off those peripherals and using the money to get a solid-state drive along with your HDD.

You people just don't understand... Gsync adds $150+ to ANY monitor. THAT'S what your paying for. This Dell would be sub $300 if it didn't have gsync. The price is absolutely fine for a gsync monitor.

Don't blame Dell for it being 'overpriced', blame Nvidia for thinking they can charge whatever they want and get away with it.

Depending on the games you play (lighter esports titles vs heavy AAA), you may want to consider a 3700x. While the 3600 has decent 144hz performance, the 3700x or 9700k is ideal for pushing more frames, plus you have the added benefit of two more physical cores. You can get an awesome 1440p 144hz freesync monitor like the Dell S2719DGF for around $300. There's no reason to pay extra for Gsync when Freesync will do the exact same thing for cheaper. A nice 1440p 144hz IPS panel should only run you $500, so spend a little more of that budget on a CPU upgrade to make the most of a 144hz monitor.

This is the one I'm looking at. So what your saying is if I use FreeSync it matches the refresh rate to the fps? Is there input delay like typical Vsync?

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-G257HU-smidpx-25-Inch-Widescreen/dp/B00QS0AKVK is essentially the same (I think it uses the exact same panel but not sure). I got one not too long ago for $200. But the dell has a significantly better stand, comes factory calibrated, and has a better feature set in general. If your trying to buy a main monitor I'd go with the Dell.

Also, the U2515Hx is $279.99 on Amazon right now.

This is around the same price as a 1070. Enough games hit quite a bit over 60fps and the monitor will be much longer relevant compared to a gpu, 1070 for 1080p 60 is really overkill, and to future proof id say no. Because 1 the price to performance is way worse compared to 480 and nvidia does not really age that well anyway. You should just buy the most reasonable gpu for you and upgrade whenever needed. You could obviously buy the 1070 with the monitor that would be really nice.

EDIT: Its also available on Newegg for the same price.

u/ll3ubbles · 3 pointsr/Monitors

Ok, what's your budget to begin with?
And what's the main purpose of the monitor? (Gaming, art, design, etc..)

I recently bought a Dell S2716DG/R for my gaming rig and was pleasantly surprised with the picture quality. (Upgraded from a 1080p 32" TV monitor.)

Specs of the Dell
-27" screen
-2560 x 1440 at 144hz (DisplayPort)
-G-Sync
-1ms Response
-TN panel (I know you're looking for an IPS)
-Color Gamut (typical): 82% (CIE1976), 72% (CIE 1931) Color depth: 16.7 Million colors
-DisplayPort and HDMI
-2 USB 3.0 ports

Price: Bought it on 08/26/2017 at $449 (Best Buy) (Wait for the price drop, maybe you can get it for lower.)

Now, there's a 24" version that I've seen go down to $380 at Amazon. Dell 2417DG

If you can try to see the monitor in operation before buying, go check it out. But, it's been an amazing Switch for me and the colors have been way better than my original screen.

^ This is my pick.

Another monitor to consider

AOC Agon AG271QX

I've looked into this and was going to get it, until I found the Dell on sale... pretty good reviews. (Look outside of Amazon reviews, those are mixed with other products)

24" ver. of the AOC

u/YhuggyBear · 3 pointsr/Monitors

So this 1440p dell is generally cheaper than every 1080p gsync Ive seen. well worth it. I have the 27in version.

u/hwtrend · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Depends on how much you want to fork out for the monitor , but I think a 24" 1080p would be what you will looking for . It's a good PPI ballpark for 1080p , I've used 27" 1080p before and the lack of pixel density gets really annoying overtime , especially while web browsing .

If u're looking for 144hz and Gsync there is this ASUS VG248QE 24" 144hz 1080p TN https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B2HH7G0 , for around $259.99 (I don't know how much it's sold in Crown though) . Don't think there are much options for 24" IPS with high refresh rate though .

u/FierceDeityGabe · 3 pointsr/gaming

I'm going to assume you're on a budget otherwise I would recommend something like this as a 144hz monitor will make a way bigger difference than whatever the hell "optimized for esports" is supposed to mean. But I would go for a 24 inch screen regardless as 1080p on anything bigger will look grainy.

u/The_Real_Cjc100 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I would definitely go with 1440p for just gaming. I have a 4k monitor at work at a 1440p one for personal use. I can't really notice a difference with gaming between 1440p and 4k unless you put them side by side doing the same thing. I think 1440p would fit better into your budget and requires far less graphical power to drive. There is a massive difference between 4k and 1440p for viewing lots of text on the screen at once so you if you anything like that it might be worth it. I would also recommend that you take a look at IPS panels and adaptive refresh rate monitors (g-sync for nvidia). IPS is slightly slower (it won't matter unless you play very competitive games) and costs more. However, it will display more colors and will display them more accurately. G-sync allows your graphics card to dynamically set the refresh rate of your monitor which leads to a far better gaming experience, especially when your frame rate is below 120hz. My personal monitor has both of these technologies and they make a big difference.
The monitor you picked out has a 60hz refresh rate, that's fine for casual gaming but I recommend you pick out one with a higher refresh rate before you get one in 4k.

Reccomendations:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B01IOO4SGK/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all
This one is 1440p, g-sync, 144hz, and TN. It's a little out of your budget but regularly goes on sale. My friend has one for cs-go and loves it.

https://www.amazon.com/AOC-AG241QX-2560x1440-Adjustable-DisplayPort/dp/B01NCTHS6E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1519152011&sr=8-1&keywords=1440p+120hz
This is a 1440p, freesync (you'll need an amd gpu to take advantage of the adaptive refresh), 144hz, TN monitor. It's a little bit cheaper than the last one.

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XG270HU-omidpx-FREESYNC-Widescreen/dp/B00VRCLHYS?tag=bestmonitors04-20

This one is 1440p, 27 inches, and 144hz. People are saying you can tune the colors because they're not the best out of box, but everyone has difference preference on color.

u/Trees_Advocate · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Hi all. I need a monitor for an ordered build. I'll have a GTX 1080 running with an 6700k, but I know little about monitors. I've also kinda run through my budget, and will be limited on what I can drop for a monitor. I'd like to spend about $400, but can probably stretch that to $500 for the right deal.

Will an IPS work if it's only at about 60hz, 5ms Refresh rate? Or should I bite the bullet and pay a little extra for a G-sync capable 144hz TN? Both are 2560 x 1440. These are what I'm looking at:

27" IPS:

24" G-Sync TN:

27" G-Sync TN:
http://www.microcenter.com/product/437547/ROG_Swift_PG278Q_27_WQHD_G-Sync_LED_Monitor

Any other options are welcome! I wasn't sure if G-Sync was really necessary, or even a high refresh rate. Thanks all!

u/mwax321 · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Fair warning. I bought two of these about 3 weeks ago and returned BOTH to Newegg/Pixio. Both had some sort of issue where the menu buttons would stop working after being on for about an hour. If you pressed a menu button, the entire screen would turn into flickering green/red bars. Power button would stop working, even. The only fix is to unplug, wait 5 min, plug back in.

I instead bought two Dell Gaming S2417DG 165hz GSync Monitors. They were the only 24" 1440p 144hz+ monitors. They are NOT IPS, but they look fantastic (after a moderate amount of tweaking).

The Pixio stand is hot garbage too. Highly recommend a VESA stand if you buy this.

u/PM_ME_PANTY_IN_MOUTH · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought this PC as is from Amazon along with the Acer R240HY bidx Monitor. Everything works splendidly.

I can run League of Legends on the igpu at over 60fps max settings.

Personally, I would recommend installing a graphics card and changing the PSU if you do so. If you don't want to reconnect everything by changing the PSU then you can get a card that runs off the power from the mobo (gtx 1050/rx460).


A bit weird though as my pc shipped with a 350w PSU. Maybe they thought they could cut the costs a bit by lowering it.

u/lollluna · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would tack on a regular hard drive (1TB would do), they're super cheap and will give you some needed extra storage space. 500GB will fill up quick.

With a solid CPU and GPU you'll want a better monitor for sure. Acer makes a very affordable but solid monitor that is freesync and gsync capable that I'll post the link for below.

u/Zutrax · 3 pointsr/battlestations

The vertical monitor is a Dell Gaming S2716DGR. It's a 27" 1440p TN panel monitor with G-Sync. It's a fantastic little monitor, but a lot of people do have issue with color banding on it, especially if you don't tweak the settings on it.

The curved ultrawide is an Alienware 1900R. For me it was a tossup between that and the Asus Predator ultrawide of the same style. I ended up chosing the Alienware due to less complaints over backlight bleed and the fact that it overclocks to 120hz. So far it's been a beautiful monitor and I've had zero issues with it.

u/connorboy · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I really like it a lot. I went from 1080p 60hz -> this and the colors I got from this amazon review here made it look really really nice

Although I don't have it on 144hz yet (still on 760 GPU, waiting for MSI Gaming X 1070 to be in stock) its still a huge upgrade, they colors look really nice and the stand is super good. Also, games run really well surprisingly even though I'm on 1440p and that probably has something to do with g-sync, so that is really good as well.

Overall rating it right now solid 9/10

Give the ASUS VG248qe a try. It's a great monitor for the price.

u/Snorkle25 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

This is what I recommend getting:

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

Gsync is a variable refresh rate technology that matches and changes the screens framerates to match your GPU's output.

In Pane Switching (IPS) is a newer screen type that generally offers better contrast for darker blacks and lighter whites with a fuller color range than older TN panels.

The refresh rate goes up to 144hz which on newer AAA titles you will be able to enjoy but is more than enough to not limit the system.

u/PurrNugget · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I don't think we're going to truly have a 4k capable card for a couple more generations. The 1080 excels at 1440p and you should easily be able to hit 144hz on most AAA games maxed graphics. I do pretty good with a 980ti and this monitor.

u/PhantomFallacy23 · 3 pointsr/CompetitiveForHonor

You're better off buying this ASUS monitor (link below). Benq monitors cost a decent amount more and this monitor uses the exact same screen as the Benq's do. I have this exact ASUS monitor and have had it for about 4 months. I absolutely love it. When I bought it it was about $200 USD and the price has been fluctuating ever since I did. The lowest I saw it was $195 USD. It's a bit on the higher side atm though, but Benq's are still a bit more. Hope this helps!

It was sold by Amazon so I'd wait for that I got the warehouse deals one. I'd recommend spending the extra little bit to get 1440p 144hz g sync, it's a sweet monitor

This is why I asking whether you'll be buying in US. Building with US prices is way different than building here in India. Here's what the prices would look like in INR:

Ryzen 2700X - 29,488

Cooler Master Masterliquid 240 - 6620

MSI X470 Gaming Plus - 13,384

Gskill Sniper X 3600MHz - 16,499 (This is effing cheap at Prime AGBG! I have no clue how.)

Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SSD - 6050 (Samsungs are just better)

WD 1TB 7200RPM - 2920

MSI 1080Ti Gaming X - 79,999 (As usual, ridiculous price at amazon. Out of stock elsewhere. Cheapest 1080Ti in India is FE which sells at nVidia's website for 57,000. Next cheapest is Zotac Mini for 65,000.)

Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Special Edition - 8770 (Black seems to be out of stock for now)

Cooler Master V650 Fully Modular PSU - 8000 (We don't get EVGA PSU's in India except at amazon for twice what they're worth.)

Microsoft Windows10 Home - 5769 (Finally amazon is useful! Gods wept!)

Dell S2716DG - 58,669 (Amazon useful again! What is happening?)

Cooler Master Devastator - 999 (I'm not sure if this is the right one?)

Total - Rs. 237,169 with MSI GPU. Cost would be Rs. 214,168 with Founder's Edition GPU. However cheap Nehru Place might be, I doubt it'd save you Rs. 50,000.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intel Build

i7 8700K - 27,490

Cooler Master Masterliquid 240 - 6620 (We don't get Dark Rock Pro 4 here).

MSI Z370 A-Pro - 10,199

Corsair LPX 3000MHz - 15,550 (G.skill Aegis unavailable)

Rest of the build same.

Total - Rs. 231,035 with MSI GPU. Rs. 208,036 with FE GPU. Again, way over your budget I think. You've got two options IMO: 1. increase your budget, or 2. state your final budget and we'll try help you out with a build from scratch.

How about the Dell S2716DG 1440p 144hz Gsync $479.99 ?

The only downside is it's a TN panel but if you're purely going for gaming , it should be great . It's also very well received in /r/monitors and there are already plenty of calibration settings to get the best out of it here https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/4y3pzd/best_display_settings_for_dell_s2716dg/?st=j4yzv007&sh=279f23a4

Play letterboxed widescreen. It won't be as pretty but you'll get the whole inventory.

When you can scrounge up the money for a monitor (any monitor), I suggest this. It's about the best balance of price and quality you can get under $150.

u/NoxiTiZe · 2 pointsr/PS4

DemonicXfat, getting a monitor is good for hardcore gamers that enjoy shooters and really want an edge.

When looking at getting a monitor to game on, it is good to go for 24-32". And the best thing to get is something with a low response time. When buying a monitor for gaming most people look for one within the range of 1-5ms(GTG) response times and something that has the capability to be adjusted quite well(through settings). I personally like ASUS ones. Other ones that are recommended are BenQ( quite expensive though), Samsung, and Acer. I don't recommend getting a smaller tv as the response times will still be greater.

Please note: you haven't really given a price range but you shouldn't be spending anything over $250 for a good monitor(You can find reasonable deals on any of these monitor types above)

I'll link you to a few ones my friends and I have used:

Though I would check for if to be on sale. I got it directly from Dell for $480 and I saw it on sale for $450 before. You could always play on 1080 resolution still if games are suffering too much. I have a 1080 ti and I can generally get around 80-100fps in most games at 1440p ultra everything minus v-synch. With the 1060 I imagine 60fps is possible but you probably will need to play with some high and medium settings.

u/Ageless3 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

Personally I think g sync is the cherry on top of a nice system, it shouldn't be something you sacrifice other parts for. I got this on sale for 500 bucks when I was looking for a monitor and I love it. I like that I never EVER have to worry about v sync or screen tearing. I like that even when my games dip to 40fps they're still smooth flowing. It's a very nice feature to be sure.

But if you're deciding between a big gpu upgrade or getting g sync, I'd say go for the gpu.

u/g0atmeal · 2 pointsr/buildapc

If I may make a recommendation, try to go for 24", which suits 1080p better. 27" is still good, but it doesn't look as sharp. Also, I would strongly encourage getting a monitor with adaptive sync. ("Freesync" monitors if you have an AMD card, and "Gsync" monitors if you have an NVIDIA card.) It makes a huge difference.

Looks like you have a GTX 1070. In that case, I would recommend also upgrading to 1440p like /u/KarlofDuty said. I use a 980 Ti for [email protected] w/ Gsync, and it does the job very well. A 1070 should do it even better.

The options you selected are all quite a bit overpriced for what they offer, in my experience. As for affordable better options, I use the Dell S2716DG, which meets all these critera and you can often find for about $450-500 -- check /r/buildapcsales often, because this monitor pops up there every other week. You can get a monitor multiple times better for the same amount that you're already willing to spend.

Please note that it is a TN panel, which is a type known for having washed-out colors. I own two different monitors with TN panels, and you can adjust color settings to make it still look great. The main benefit is that TN is usually much cheaper than the better alternative, IPS. (So, if you're willing to spend an extra couple hundred bucks, you can get an IPS panel instead. If accurate color is that important to you.)

You may be thinking, "but that's a 27"." The key difference is that 1440p looks great at 27", while 1080p looks best at 24" in my opinion. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Other note: there's a new release from Dell coming soon, which is basically the same thing but scaled down to 24" for better sharpness and increased the refresh rate to 165hz. I don't know how much it will cost, but if you're interested it might be worth waiting a little while.

u/aceman1011 · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

? It has 1 ms less response time for G2G, but otherwise they seem pretty similar. The Asus has a MIR and some bleeding from the backlight, but is it worth paying the extra cash? Thanks!

u/Anrikay · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Sorry, just edited the album to include them. Both of them are 1920x1080 TN panels.

Center monitor: Asus VG248QE 24" 144Hz monitor. I bought this monitor because it's 144Hz, 3D-vision ready, and Asus so it would match my other monitors. I give it an 8/10.

Pros: I got it at $220, eye strain is significantly reduced due to the 144Hz refresh rate, I can finally watch my 3D movies, and the backplate is at the same height as the other monitors so monitor stands work.

Cons: my only real con is the color reproduction. When in 2D, colors can be a bit washed out and there's only so far calibration can take you. In 3D, on the other hand, it looks fantastic so I accept the trade-off.

Peripheral Monitors: Asus VS247H-P 23.6" 60Hz monitor. These monitors are used for nVidia Surround and extra documents. For example, I'll do |Spotify & browser|works cited & research paper|browser & browser|. Since I mainly do work on the center, I didn't need 120/144Hz. This gets a 9/10.

Pros: response time is suitable for gaming. Color reproduction is some of the best I've seen in a TN panel. I bought the two monitors three years apart and noticed zero color degradation. At $150, the price/performance ratio is almost unreal.

Cons: The included stand is garbage, very few ways to adjust it. If you want more than one monitor, I'd recommend just getting a monitor stand. But this being my only complaint should tell you how good I think it is.

TL;DR: I love all of my monitors. I would recommend the VS247H-P to anyone. The VG248QE isn't for everyone, so I recommend that only if you want 3D. There are better looking 144Hz monitors without 3D.

u/bearadox · 2 pointsr/buildapc

>I also would need to find a monitor that supports 1080p/60fps without breaking the bank or looking like utter shit.

1080p/60Hz monitors are super cheap nowadays, shouldn't be an issue. "Utter shit" is subjective, of course. My ASUS monitor is nothing fancy but I have no complaints either, currently $110 ($90 after rebate).

I have one and I have absolutely no issues with quality or screen tearing on any game

u/DJ_Slomin · 2 pointsr/buildapc

It really depends on what your brother is playing for games. If they are gaming casually and want it to look amazing this would be a good.

That looks like a good 4k monitor. That 1080Ti could push 4k pixels but only at 60fps max for many games.

If your brother is playing competitive or fps games I would recommend a 1440p monitor. It is known to be the best sweet spot resolution for 27" monitors. Below is a great 144Hz, 1440p, g-sync, IPS monitor. A gaming monster. Having a g-sync monitor is a gamers dream. It keeps everything buttery smooth without any tearing.

I think you will get a lot of varied answers around here about IPS vs. TN. Having said that, I will tell you my experience. I bought a cheap Asus TN panel a few years ago (before I knew what a TN panel was). Something always seemed off about it to me but I could never quite place it. Then I started to regularly use an IPS panel and I finally put it together. And once I figured it out, the weaknesses in the TN panel became glaringly apparent.

On the other hand, I have no doubt that TN panels have improved greatly since I bought my monitor, especially in the price range we are talking about here and I think a lot of people here will tell you there are great TN panels like this: Dell S2716DG

Which I have seriously considered buying because it's a great price, great design, great quality and has all the features I want...except it's TN. I can't speak for you but since you already have an IPS panel I would think that having a TN monitor next to it would just be distracting, to me it would be. But the price difference is hard to ignore.

u/S1iceOfPie · 2 pointsr/Monitors

This one looks like a close match: 24M47VQ.

However, if you want to try upgrading to an IPS screen instead of sticking with a TN panel, it looks like you could buy this monitor for virtually the same price: 24MP48HQ-P. However, this one doesn't have a DVI-D input, so if you don't have an HDMI connection to your computer and were connecting with DVI-D instead of VGA, you could try this Acer monitor as it's very similar: Acer R240HY bidx.

If you do have an HDMI connection available and a cable, I'd recommend this Dell 24" monitor for currently the same price as the above suggestions: Dell SE2416HX.

Hope this helps!

u/ShadowWovle · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

With the 1080 you could probably bump your monitor up to a 1440p 144hz one (also with G-Sync if budget permits). I'd suggest this or this

If it's a little expensive I'd suggest removing the SSD (for now) to make up the money and adding it later. :)

The Asus PB278Q 27" monitor looks like it'd be similar to the Dell (or Apple Thunderbolt Display).

Really any display would work but I personally prefer displays with resolution that is at least 2560x1440 and IPS. Mainly just get the highest pixel density you can afford. There might be some popular and cheaper Korean equivalents out there as well.

Out of your price range now, but it goes on sale below 450 almost on a weekly basis. Watch /r/buildapcsales

Hits most of your points.

1440p,
144hz
Gsync
27"
low response time.

It is a TN. Some might knock me for saying this next bit, but don't listen to them. Speaking from experience, this is true. This monitor has fantastic colors for a TN. Turn up digital vibrancy in the nvidia control panel to about 60% and things will really start to pop. Sure it has TN viewing angles, but you don't care, you're going to be looking right at it like 99% of people who spend this much money on a monitor.

The only issue that this monitor has to speak of is some pretty bad color banding. Personally, I think it is far overblown, but it is there and I will accept that some people may be more sensitive to it than others. Accept that in your price range no monitor will come without drawbacks (In any price range, it could be argued... monitor technology and QA really still kind of blows all around). I'd take this particular drawback over almost any others I could think of.

Still, If you can wait a week or two for this monitor to go on sale and snag it, I would be willing to bet you'll be so satisfied with it you will not feel the need to upgrade in a year, and if you did you would be disappointed with the monitor you upgraded to in the sense that you will feel you should have gotten more for what you paid in comparison. You really can't beat this monitor for the price when it's on sale.

I believe this is the perfect IPS panel. Good for editing (I'm a graphic designer) and 1080p 60fps gaming.

4ms response time and 9.5ms input lag (did my research on this monitor). It was $119 and now $129. Hopefully it wont be more expensive when I get the money ):

I don't know about the AOC, but I have the 1440p version of the Acer (every other spec the same, even same case/bezel) and two KN242HYL 60hz IPS panels (also same case/bezel) and they are fantastic.


Worth noting that CamelCamelCamel tracks third party sales of that Acer as being 195ish and sold from amazon for a few bucks less. This isn't much of a deal so much as it's normal price. link here


Personally I think monitors are one thing that is pretty safe to buy used. They are pretty stationary, people don't modify them, they have a very long life expectancy. If you're okay with that try checking ebay for it or make a post on /r/hardwareswap . Craigslist and facebook marketplace also work, these are very common models.


If you're specifically looking for new, check /r/buildapcsales - If you filter for posts tagged "monitor" and sort it by top for the past month, you will find what sort of deals are possible. Usually deals repeat themselves I find, just be patient.

Try returning the one you have and replacing it maybe? Depends on when you bought it though via amazon

One last question: I'm getting my first monitor sometime over the next few days with a budget of max about $150 and I was wondering if the Acer R240HY bidx 23.8-Inch IPS HDMI DVI VGA (1920 x 1080) Widescreen Monitor would be a good choice?

u/JLC4LIFE · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

I'm playing on a 1440p 144Hz BenQ monitor. I have a i5-6600k paired with a GTX970 overclocked and I get constant 80+ FPS. I play the game on 1440p resolution on lowest setting for PUBG, but any other game I also run 1440p, but with the highest setting my GPU can achieve.

It really is worth it to be honest. I can't tell about G-sync as my monitor is Freesync, but rest make my games look awesome. Modded Skyrim on 1440p monitor... think about it.

The best bang for your buck is probably this one: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

u/thirdeyeblindmelon · 2 pointsr/DetroitRedWings

I have two 24 inch 1080p 144hz monitors. I like 1080p because it's easier for the 1070 to hit 144fps in almost all games I play. Witcher 3 is probably the most demanding game I play and I get anywhere from 70-100+ fps with ultra settings. The 1070 is perfect for 1080p144fps, but if the extra fps doesn't really matter to you, it's pretty good for 1440p60fps too.

u/ffaorlandu · 2 pointsr/wow

In case anyone cares, the reasoning behind the 60 FPS limit is due to your monitor's refresh rate. The amount of times the screen refreshes (draws a new picture on the screen) is measured in hertz (hz). Most monitors are 60hz meaning they refresh 60 times per second. Your computer may be producing 200 frames per second but your monitor doesn't display them all. Sometimes part of 1 frame and part of the next frame are shown together and cause screen tearing. Limiting your FPS in game to 60 FPS will help eliminate this effect. VSYNC accomplishes this by matching the FPS of your game to the refresh rate of the monitor. This can cause input lag and is generally bad for fast paced games, especially first person shooters. This can have minor effects on WoW during PVP or raiding where movement and reactions need to be quick but in general it's not that big of a deal. The best way is to arbitrarily set your max FPS either through the slider on the in game menu or with the command "/console maxfps 60". If you want to properly use your beefy video card running WoW at 100+ FPS, then get a higher refresh rate monitor. Usually 120hz but the Asus 24" 144hz monitor is $269 US. I own one and highly recommend it for anyone that plays PC games. If you really want to utilize the full potential of 120hz and 144hz monitors, then you'll want to check out Blurbusters which activates the full refresh rate of your 120hz monitor.

in additoin to being 144hz, also has 1ms response time. And the color and saturation is amazing. Honestly when i got this and played chiv, chivalry looked even better. All the lighting looks amazing, colors are way more vibrant, and walking inside stoneshill for example... even the torches on the wall and stuff look different in an amazing way.

Investment? yes.. it's pricey but peripherals make your gaming experience so good.

If that one is out of your price range, you can try this

hmm well i have a viewsonic xg2401 and i love it but if you could do without freesync try something like ASUS VG248QE or the BenQXL2411Z. i've also heard great thing about the Nixeus vue24. Just giving a few options. I'll do some research and come back with some 60hz option with freesync.
Note: The Asus and the Benq dont support freesync.
The Viewsonic and the nixeus do support freezync.

u/voidcalls_tousall · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Hi EN,

I am in your boat. It's Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I want to build a new rig. My last one (9/2011 - seriously) needs some updating.

This morning I've been reading about monitors and honestly the thing that stands out most is FreeSync (AMD) and G-Sync (Nvidia). I'm finding that this determines a number of the variables of the monitor and it's cost. So far I'm looking at a 27" G-Sync monitor and it's on sale for $470 Link

u/Locke03 · 2 pointsr/Guildwars2

In that price range I would look at 144hz monitors if you have a system that can push that many frames in the games you play. If you have a shop nearby where you can see some in action I would encourage you to stop by and have a look. Personally I find that the visual quality gained with pushing 90+fps to be vastly superior to pushing higher (more than 1080p) resolutions. Take a look at something like the Viewsonic XG2701 or Asus VG248QE.

u/Ass_Cheddar · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I would recommend saving up for one, It would be totally worth it. I spent $560 on a Dell 27" 1440p 144Hz monitor, my second is my old Dell 23" 1080p and the difference is impeccable.

Edit1:Found It on amazon for cheaper than I spent! used or new.

Edit2: Also Gsync is amazing for gaming, you can really tell the difference when it comes to the smoothness of a games graphics.

That's a great build longhornarch and I appreciate your reply but I wondering isn't the monitor way too expensive in this build? I mean I could get a cheaper one and use the rest of the funds to say have a faster ram. Maybe even upgrade the processor to i7.

This monitor was mentioned in the top 10 monitors of 2016:

Well if there is a huge GPU crash and a GTX 1080 ti is $400-500 then that or a GTX 1070 or 1070 ti. I'm looking for a 1440p monitor, 144hz and vesa compatible. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DGR-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0?th=1&psc=1

u/R-A-S-0 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Honestly, that's not a bad monitor. I don't think you'd see much of a visual improvement with any modern 1080p monitor.

120-144hz is always a worthwhile upgrade in my opinion, especially in games like CSGO and DOTA2. Something like this Asus would do the job nicely.

I would stay at 1080p as your system will have a hard time running most games at a higher resolution.

Edit: I totally forgot about Freesync! If you get a new monitor, definitely get one with Freesync; I use G-Sync on a daily basis and it's amazing. This looks to be a good one

u/Ba11erOnABudget · 2 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

Coming from 1450 hours in CS:GO, solid gear is a great investment.

You absolutely will not regret getting a Zowie mouse. I've used one for the last 500 hours of CS:GO (EC2-A) and it is great. The mouse is light, has solid profile key placement, perfect sensor and plug and play ready. It is the essence of a perfect FPS mouse. All the features you need, none of the stuff you don't. If/When this mouse dies I'm going back to get another. Something to note about Zowie, each of their mice use the exact same components (buttons, switches, sensors) the only difference is the shell.

A large mouse pad is also great. If you want something on a budget take a look at these. I recommend at a minimum, the XL Heavy. I myself have the Extended at work and the XXXL at home for gaming. The large surface allows for lowering your sens to get finer aiming capability (important for CS:GO Headshots, can do without it in OW)

For monitors, I have witnessed 144hz gaming and can confirm that nothing is smoother. If your PC can get 144FPS in OW then it isn't a bad investment. Look at this or this if you want quality well priced panels. When it was time for a new monitor I opted for 21:9 Ultrawide with 75hz refresh and have no regrets. The games I've played on this monitor are great experiences and I believe 21:9 panels are 100% the best you can buy. When 21:9 is available in 144hz and 1440p I'll buy day one. Until then I wait.

EDIT: a few people recommend steelseries mouse pads. I've had some and didn't care for them too much for the price they're at. The "generic" one I have and recommended are great for the price and have held up extremely well over the last 18+ months I've had them. MIONIX mice are also top quality and from what I remember, they actually come out of the same manufacturing plant that Zowie mice do. I didn't mention a keyboard b/c I believe there are better places you should put your money first (Mouse, Mouse Mat, Display, then a keyboard). If you want to get a mech kb, cooler master has some good entry options. I have their CM Storm Quickfire and it's been great. Keep the audio you have now, sound isn't as vital as it is in CS:GO but if they were to die out on you, look for some quality headphones that don't have a "gaming" label.

If your budget is up to $250 that ASUS monitor supports up to 144Hz so if you are playing more competitive/eSports type games they will be much smoother if your GPU is capable.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236722&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Is similar to the first option, but offer FreeSync, if you are using an AMD video card. Also just a little be more expensive and may be out of your budget.

https://smile.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VX2757-MHD-DisplayPort-FreeSync-Technology/dp/B01A0ZRRCI?ie=UTF8&tag=pcpapi-20

Two options from ViewSonic 24" for $160 and 27" for $220. Both are 1080p so be aware that the larger screen isn't higher resolution. This doesn't make a huge difference in gaming, IMO, but windows and text in a browser might seem larger than typical if used to a 24" 1080p monitor.

Both support FreeSync and go up to 75Hz. Obviously not as high as 120 or 144, but its still a noticeably and welcome improvement to 60Hz.

https://smile.amazon.com/AOC-G2460PF-24-Inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B01BV1XBEI?ie=UTF8&tag=pcpapi-20

Final option here, AOC 24" 1080p with FreeSync and refresh rates up to 144Hz. If refresh rate is a high priority this is the most affordable option to get the highest refresh rates available today. It also comes with a pretty robust stand that allows it to be raise quite high, and rotated vertically. Seems to hit all the features for a great price and reviews seem to be quite favorable.

Dell 27" 1440p 144hz G-sync
My current monitor, needed a little bit of color calibration out of the box but after that everything looks amazing and with 144hz G-sync games run smoother than anything I've played on before.

I picked mine up for just under 500 dollars durning one of dells many online sales.

u/falconfetus8 · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

144hz monitors are awesome. However, they're also pricey, and the improved smoothness might not be worth the $230+ pricetag, unless you're receiving it as a gift.

Here's the order in which you should upgrade, if you want your game to feel smooth and responsive:

  • If your mouse's polling rate is less than 1000hz, upgrade that first. It's the cheapest, and will drastically improve how everything feels. You can get a kickass mouse for just $45. I recommend the Logitech G303.

  • If you can't consistently run Overwatch at 80+ fps on lowest settings, upgrade your GPU first. Since we're speaking in terms of budget, you'll want to go with AMD. AMD cards are cheaper than their equivalent NVIDIA cards, but kinda choke on certain games with NVIDIA technologies in them.

  • If you still have money left over, or have already done the above things, get a new monitor. The one I chose is this.

    The monitor will definitely give you an advantage, and make your overall computing experience smoother and more responsive. But with the pricetag, you might want to consider other upgrade first.

u/Hard_Celery · 2 pointsr/buildapc

It's 1440p/144hz/G-sync, but TN. However, it apparently uses a different TN panel than what Asus/BenQ is using according to this review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_s2716dg.htm

It's been as low as $549 (on the microsoft store), so I'm waiting for that price drop again.

Hope this helps!

u/viperatedrko · 2 pointsr/buildapc

If your gonna be gaming at 1080p you might want to switch to the AMD RX 480 because your motherboard is AMD optimized for Crossfire and not Nvidia SLI if you so choose to run two cards in the future.

The RX 480 runs better, if not the same, performance as the GTX 970 and costs $200 for the 4GB model, which saves you $55.

u/TimeTravellerSmith · 2 pointsr/buildapc

The refresh rate is the cap to how many fps you can actually see.

So a 60Hz monitor (which is the standard) changes the picture on the screen 60 times per second, meaning that if your GPU is pushing out 120 frames per second, the screen only captures every other frame that's produced by the GPU.

You can get up to 144Hz monitors, meaning that you can see up to 144fps. AFAIK you can only get these in 1080p and not anything higher and they're more expansive than your standard monitor.

EDIT:

This is also how screen tearing happens and what VSync is for.

Say you've got a 60Hz monitor and you're playing at 100fps. Odds are the screen will refresh halfway through the GPU pushing out two different frames, meaning that half of your monitor shows the old frame, and the other half shows the new frame. Which is noticed during lots of quick movement and is annoying as all fuck.

So VSync attempts to match the timing of the refresh rate so your GPU only pushes out new frames as the monitor can handle it.

If you've heard of Nvidia's new tech GSync...the idea is that instead of the CPU trying to regulate when the GPU pushes out frames for maximum timing on the monitor (which is constant and locked) the monitor's refresh rate is non-constant and matches the GPU's output up to a certain threshold. Thus eliminating the tearing issues and taking burden off the CPU.

u/MPCExtant · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

The BenQ you're looking at is 75 Hz, not 120/144 Hz. I personally have the BenQ XL2420Z and I love it.

The ASUS VG248QE is a pretty popular gaming monitor. It was selling for $220 a week or two ago, it's gone up but it's just above your budget. Not sure if you're willing to stretch it a bit. So if you're willing to wait for a sale, you might catch a better price.

As for mice, I use the Razer Deathadder2013, and that's a little large. I used to use the Logitech G502 but it was a little too small for me. But it does have the thumb grip/rest you were looking for and the weight is adjustable.

People here are recommending the Zowie FK1 which is really popular amongst the community right now. If you're hands are small, the FK2 is coming out soon (not sure when), and it will be slightly smaller. But these have no thumb rest.

Side note: If you decide to go for the ASUS monitor, this will help you with the color calibration. These fast response time monitors usually have shitty stock color calibrations.

Here is a 4ms IPS monitor that is very cheap.
You should read a lot if it's reviews before purchase.
Basically if you're set on getting a monitor below 4ms then you might have to skip out on an IPS display. Just bare in mind that IPS displays have better color, which is more important to me than refresh rate. Depends on your tastes. Maybe I can find one with a faster refresh rate, though.

u/pterencephalon · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I recently bought this monitor (price seems to have gone up a few bucks since I got it) and am quite happy with it.

At that price point, you'll be looking at 60 Hz monitors. Unless you're into competitive gaming where you need every tiny boost, look for an IPS panel instead of TN. If you want to mount it on a different stand, look for whether it has VESA mounts (the one I linked doesn't). Other than that, consider whether you want a glossy or matte display, whether you're OK with bigger bezels, and what amount of stand adjustment you want.

I also have this monitor at home and am quite happy with it.

I would say whatever you can afford, typically you can get a 24inch 1080 60hz for a decent price around 100 bucks. If you game a ton then I would go for a 144hz monitor, but for cheapest and soonest 1080p 60hz is good! I have a laptop and have seen people use a laptop mount to put a monitor side by side with laptop. Here and a cheap monitor link here (look at amazon reviews to see images of it in use) Also a mouse and keyboard would also be needed for an external monitor since you wont be using laptop one anymore

  1. No.
  2. As long as your monitor is [email protected] or [email protected], you should be able to achieve that with most games. Remember: FPS is the number of frames your GPU can push out. Refresh rate (Hz) is the number of frames your monitor can actually display.
  3. The B450 platform is aimed at Ryzen 2.
  4. Ryzen favors faster clock speeds. Your ram should be fine*.
  5. Mini-sized cards are typically meant for smaller form factor builds. Just understand that you may be sacrificing lower temps for the smaller card size. Also note that your case can support a longer card.
  6. This might be a good option for you.
  7. I'd swap that Razer keyboard for almost anything else; Razer's weakness is not their hardware, but their god-awful software.
u/Keelay_Jelly · 2 pointsr/Monitors

Unfortunately I don't have any experience with that monitor. The only "problem" I see with that monitor is that it has Freesync and not G-sync. In a way that's actually kinda good, since Freesync adds no premium to the monitor, but when running something at 144Hz you may find the adaptive sync to be nice on graphic intensive games. Funny enough I had the same situation earlier in the month when I found an IPS panel with 144Hz 1440p and Freesync for 200$ less than the equivalent G-sync. The only G-sync version that was the same price was this Dell TN panel (with all the other stuff). Still haven't decided ... waiting for AMD benchmarks.

Back to the questions though. I'm not entirely sure what your situation is like (or how much that monitor cost in AUD cause for some reason the page won't load) but you may either want to stick to 1080p 144Hz or IPS for now, or wait and see if that Dell panel goes on sale, since its got everything you are looking for + g-sync. I'm expecting however that the monitor i linked is like 700+ in AUD, which in that case my bad. A 1080p monitor with IPS and 144Hz might even come out soon who knows?

The Acer that the other guy mentioned is a good choice, although you could also go with the [Dell S2716DG] (https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0) for the same specs and much lower price (and IMO it looks nicer).

If you're willing to spend a little more for an IPS monitor, the Acer XB270HU bprz (not Abprz) is $100 more than your budget and the colors look much better. If you could afford to drop a little more I think it's very much worth it.

u/VectorVictorious · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Bought mine for $430 a few months ago. The caveat is it was sold as "Used - Like New" on Amazon. Always check out the other sellers on that monitor.

Took me about 2 weeks of watching daily before I found a great deal on what should have been and what was a "like new" monitor. Looks and runs flawless for a savings of over $100.

edit: holy shit, I can't believe the lowest priced new one there is now $600.

There are a couple options. Dell has a 24 inch and 27 inch monitor with them specs. S2716DG.

If not Asus https://www.amazon.com/PG278Q-27-Inch-Display-Refresh-Monitor/dp/B00MSOND8C

I picked up the Dell options two weeks ago it was on sale for 450 dollars. So if its not an immediate need you could wait for that sale again

Middle monitor: Dell Alienware AW3418DW (120Hz) - Got it for $629.99 open box at Microcenter a couple months back.

Left and right monitors: Acer CZ340CK (75Hz) - Got them $599.99 each at Microcenter when they were first released, cheapest 3440x1440 curved ultrawides at the time.

Top monitor: Dell S2716DGR (144Hz) - Paid ~$450 for it used shortly after it came out. I actually had this one as my middle monitor prior to getting the Alienware, but let my girlfriend use it. I recently kicked her out and took it back!

Hey everyone. I'm heavily torn between two very similar monitor models, the ASUS VG248QE and the AOC G2460PQU. Spec-wise they seem identical, but the AOC seems to be a year newer and perhaps better.

Any experiences out there to recommend for or against either?

u/Akip25 · 2 pointsr/Monitors

19201440p is 4:3

i think you probably mean 2560
1440

for gaming id say 1440p 144hz > 4k 60hz

so something like the Dell - S2716DG 27.0"

u/MatteoTomato · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme
u/AlaskanBeard · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

It's not necessarily hi-res, but I'm super happy with my ASUS VG248QE's. Instead of something widescreen you could go with a dual monitor setup (I've got triple monitors).

I recommend them a log on this sub, but they're definitely worth it.

u/glazapotamus · 2 pointsr/buildapc

144Hz, it feels soooo good!

This monitor is often recommended. Not an IPS display but a few tweaks of the color settings and it looms fantastic. G-Sync, 144hz, 1440p, Display Port. Has everything at a reasonable price and is a fantastic complement to my 1070ti! There's a 24" model as well.

Dell Gaming S2716DGR 27.0" Screen LED-Lit Monitor with G-SYNC https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0149QBOF0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Iae7BbX4G7M89

u/Soulshot96 · 2 pointsr/Monitors

Couple options for the 27 inch panel:

Asus MG279Q(IPS Freesync 4ms, 144hz, not as good as the PG, but it's cheaper, and works better with your AMD GPU thanks to freesync): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236466

This Acer(not too pretty imo but 144hz 1ms Freesync and cheap): http://www.amazon.com/Acer-XG270HU-omidpx-FREESYNC-Widescreen/dp/B00VRCLHYS/ref=sr_1_1?tag=amazon0606-20&ie=UTF8&qid=1430272001&sr=8-1&keywords=acer+xg270hu+omidpx

If you really want to save money, there is this Asus monitor(24 inches, 144hz, but TN, and only 1080p): http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VG248QE-24-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/?tag=amazon0606-20

You'll have to look at these monitors for compatibility with Vesa mounts and stuff.

As far as Ultrawides go, that is a bit trickier, you might want to either stretch the budget, or cut into the $600 for the 144hz a bit to get both. I'll post suggestions anyway.

A Dell IPS 1440p ultrawide no freesync though afaik and rather expensive: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-UltraSharp-34-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00PXYRMPE?tag=amazon0606-20

Crazy territory here, but this Acer has 75hz, 1440p, ips, freesync and a slick design, but its expensive as hell:
http://www.amazon.com/Acer-XR341CK-bmijpphz-34-inch-UltraWide/dp/B0111MRT90/ref=sr_1_15?tag=amazon0606-20&s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1436945804&sr=1-15&keywords=3440x1440

And a slightly cheaper but still pricey 1440p ips ultrawide from LG:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824025066&cm_re=1440p_ultrawide-_-24-025-066-_-Product

Look through, find some you like that both fit into your $1200 overall budget, make sure they would fit on a mount, find a mount, and go.

u/Kingrcf3 · 2 pointsr/PcMasterRaceBuilds

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0
Probably the best monitor without spending the premium on an ips version, usually can be found for less in the $400-$450 range

u/gaming4good · 2 pointsr/nvidia

well the first one is free sync so no reason to buy that unless your going AMD.

The second one i think is over priced. It is probably cause it is a BenQ but it has a refresh rate of 60hz which is poor. It doesn't have either g sync or free sync.

My recommendation is https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0

It is a little more but if you camp dell, amazon, and ebay you can find it sub 400 used, but 450 right now for new is a great deal doesn't go much below that ever. I got one for 350 used. It is 27" 1440p 144hz. It looks fantastic and has an amazing stand. The color are great after calibration and it has g sync to boot.

u/charliefuckstick · 2 pointsr/techsupport

With your CPU usage being that high, open task manager and find out what's using most of your resources. Prebuilts often come with a ton of manufacturer's bloatware.

Otherwise, there's not really a whole lot else worth straight up upgrading in your system right now. The 7700 is a great CPU, and the 1070 is a great GPU. You're at 1080p60, so there's not really a lot more performance you can squeeze out of that resolution/refresh rate for games. Nvidia's RTX cards just launched, but there's really no data for them other than they're the standard improvement over last gen's cards since literally nothing supports ray tracing yet. There's info circulating around AMD putting up GPUs on a 7nm process soon, but same with the RTX cards, it's probably wise to wait until more information is available before deciding on either. However, the 1080ti is likely going to take a dive in price pretty soon given the RTX release and Nvidia coming back into possession of thousands of Pascal boards once the crypto market demand died down. If you decide to step up your GPU, you might want to check into higher resolution and higher refresh panels as well, as there's not really more performance you can squeeze out of 1080p60 by upgrading your hardware. I've got this 1440p144hz panel and this 4k60 panel, and they're both outstanding performers for the price. You'd definitely need to up your GPU to drive them to their full potential, but it kinda sounds like you're thinking about doing that anyway, and like I said there's really not a whole lot more you can get out of 1080p60 that you aren't already getting out of your current hardware.

As for your CPU, not really a whole lot of point in upgrading there. Coffee Lake is just a hardware refresh of Kaby Lake [your CPU family], and Kaby Lake is just a hardware refresh of Skylake. It's a quad-core cpu, but it's hyperthreaded, which means it essentially functions as an 8-core. There's really no reason to put money into upgrading it until something actually better comes along.

But then again, these could all be totally moot points. Building a pc is a lot of fun and a great way to get to know every single bit of hardware in your rig. Given that you've already got a very well-performing pc, it might be worth your while to just put down some cash for an inexpensive pc just to fuck around with, like a Ryzen 3 GT 1030 build. It's a great way to learn more about hardware and how it interacts with your os without having to put down a ton of money, and it isn't necessarily devastating if you break your OS tinkering because all your more important data is elsewhere.

tested tons of 27 inches with gsync. the only one ive been really satisfied is this one https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1504110302&sr=8-1&keywords=s2716dg . i got on e of those a fewmonths ago and got a perfect panel with the first order. i upgraded to dual of those and second one was perfect too since dell has pretty good quality control. all the asus and acer (which i tested like 5+ of every model sadly...) either had high backlight bleeding or many dead pixels and dust behind the panel (or even both). despite i know at least 2 colleagues of mine do have an acer predator without problems ( after some buys and returns in the panel lottery). and avoid 1920x1080 at 27+ inches since it does look pretty ugly and your 1070 can chew those 2560x1440 easy even maxed out on most titles (especially with gsync making it smooth even in the 80 fps).

u/WrappedCorn · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

My tax return can barely fit the bill for my needs for a 1440p monitor. The two monitors that I am looking at right now are these.

Dell and Asus

Taking that both of them are gsync, the dell ones are relatively cheap but still expensive. I think I would either go for the 1080p monitors since that's all I could afford.

u/gsnee · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have the 27" this is the model that I have I believe S2716DG Best buy carries it for around $350 fairly often.

u/Enickols12 · 2 pointsr/pcgamingtechsupport

For gaming, the monitor looks good. Here is a review.

If you have an AMD card and you want a 24" monitor this one is better.

I don't have this monitor, but I personally like Asus monitors because they usually can get pretty tall so I don't need a monitor stand. I have the PB277Q and it looks nice, performs well and I have not had any issues with it in the year I have had it.

This depends, the 24" with have a higher PPI by about 10 (not that big of a deal really) and the 27" will be larger. Personaly I would get the 27" if they are the same price like they are on Amazon.

u/noah03ark · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I'll try to keep this as terse as possible.. There's also a few more steps if you use Flux, so if you need those added just say so.

You can try an .icc profile as the quickest, simplest form of calibration. This is done in your windows settings, using the s2716dg profile that you can download here: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm
These guys put one together based on their review of the monitor.

I don't only use that .icc – I applied it at first, and went into Nvidia control panel's color options and applied the following tweaks suggested by this fellow in the Amazon review
. Just scroll down, it should be the first review.

His settings didn't quite jive, so I turned down digital vibrance and some other things. Point is – that profile plus any tweaks in nvidia control panel and the built in hardware's brightness and contrast should do you fine, and you can eyeball it when you get to that stage.



The beauty of this monitor is that it does have 8bit color unlike a lot of TN panels, and with some calibration the only way you'd care about this vs IPS is if you have them side by side or depend on color calibration for photos.

u/TheAutoManCan · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Maybe a Dell S2716DG? It's a TN panel 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync. It's been on sale new for under $500 if you are willing to be patient or you can buy one right now at Amazon for $588.88.

I've seen this one recommended quite often. Wait and see what everyone else thinks. I'm not an expert by any means.

1440p + 144hz + IPS + G Sync (but I don't think that'll apply to your graphics card, but I'm not sure)

I didn't get it myself because I decided to go for 1440p.

u/Torgine · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Hate to break it to you but a 27", UWD monitor is anything but budget. You'd be better off with a budget 24" 144Hz monitor like the ASUS VG248QE.

u/Jmvars · 2 pointsr/gaming

I have a ASUS VG248QE. It costs $244 on Amazon.

It's an old monitor by now but it should still fullfill your needs. It has built-in speakers too.

You might need to install a color profile since the colors can look a bit washed out. Luckily you can find a simple guide on the internet.

EDIT: If you plan to ever use the built-in speakers I suggest a DisplayPort cable as my speakers would make static noise when using a DVI cable.

u/Scaldor · 2 pointsr/Monitors

I normally agree about Dell quality control, but not on this monitor.

Its always a lottery with gaming monitors unfortunately.

Also I bought four xb271hu recently, 3/4 were fantastic and one of them was relatively good for ips panels in terms of blb/glow. I tried the pg279q three times , x34 twice, and xb270hu three times, they were all poop. Xb271hu has improved qc to 270

u/ThiefMnemonic · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/Strobe_Synapse · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Your monitor type will depend on what type of games you want to play and how you want to play them (emphasis on frames per second or max detail/resolution - 1440p or 4k)

You have a fairly powerful setup so you could try and go for the 1440p resolution monitor (recommend 27") but it may come with a sacrifice of FPS. You'll also need to consider what refresh rate you'll want your monitor to be. Personally, I'd shoot for something at 144hz. If you want to maintain a higher framerate because you want that buttery smoothness, then I'd suggest a 1080p monitor @ 144hz.

You could do 24" as well unless you just want a bigger screen. It's important to keep in mind that there's no right or wrong answer here, it's a matter of preference. I'm running a similar setup to you but with a 1080ti and I chose a 27" 1440p @ 144hz monitor, specifically this one.

​

Remember that your monitor will likely outlast your current build, so it never hurts to spend a little extra here knowing that you will have something even stronger a few years down the road and the monitor will be able to accommodate that. Good luck!

I followed a review that I saw on Amazon to good effect. I'll link it here for convenience. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/product-reviews/B0149QBOF0

In summary though:

Gamma-0.60%
Digital vibrance-70%
Hue-0

DELL Monitor settings:
Brightness-26%

G-99%
B-96%

Make sure you have the latest drivers from Dell's website as well.

There is another review below the top one, which has pictures. It's essentially the same with slightly different contrast and brightness setting. Mix and match until you finish what's right for you. Hope this helps! My colors really pop with those settings applied.
