Hello! My PC specs include a 7700k CPU and a Asus Dual 1070, and I’m currently using a Samsung PX2370, and it’s got me feeling a bit dated, I’ve got a few scratches in the middle and top-middle of the panel that have been disrupting me while gaming on occasion here and there, and this is prompting me for a nice upgrade. I have 25 2/8ths inches of width in my monitor cubby in my desk to play with, and height/depth isn’t really an issue, so I’d prefer a 27 inch panel. I’m looking at a budget of about $500, with capacity to go slightly over if it’s a great buy.
Latency is important, this is SRK, y’all know this already.
1920x1080 vs 2560x1440? I’m sure my GPU could handle 1440p maxed out on most of my games and I’d like to get the best out of that. I do tend to play a lot of very pretty games and want them to really shine.
60hz vs 144hz? Is the difference really that noticeable? My research tells me yes, but I would love some practical reasons to spring for it.
Gsync? I hate screen tearing but part of me wonders if I get so much of it because of the age of my current display, I’m not sure. It sounds like a great benefit, are gsync monitors bound to 144hz refresh rate though? I think so?
Built in speakers are in no way shape or form required. No thanks lol.
I would prefer a somewhat adjustable stand with vertical movement and tilt, no VESA mount required though.
A curved monitor would be really nice, but likely out of the price range if I’m being real with myself. Who knows though, that’s why I’m asking here.
I think that covers most of what you need to know about what I’m looking for? Throw me some suggestions!
