New Monitor help
Written by: Andrej997 - 02:37 Mar-28-2021

Hello people, after using a fairly good IPS monitor as my gaming one, i was looking into upgrading it sometime in the next couple of weeks and as such i have decided to go for a 144 Hz one.

I found one about 8 months ago ( https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27gl63t-b-gaming-monitor  ) and so far it seems good.

Now i was thinking since i have chosen this monitor around 8 months ago, there have been new ones available and I would like a recommendation for some if you think this one is bad or you know some better ones.

My budget is 300 euros ( aprox 350$ ) but could stretch it to 350e or 420$ and one of the MUST HAVEs of my new monitor is to have Height Adjustment ( dont care about pivot ), i was looking for a 1080p 144 Hz and 27 inch ( yeah i know pixels and stuff but i dont care about that as i have poor eye sight anyway xD )  but if no 27 inch ones are good then 24 inch is also good. I would also like it to be IPS

Dont care about brand, dont care about blue light filters / options / free or gsync

 

If you need anything more feel free to ask :D

I own AOC 24G2U. It's 144hz, IPS 1080p panel. Pretty accurate colors out of the box, looks pretty stylish and runs great. But if I were looking for a monitor again, I'd try to find 1440p high refresh rate monitor. I think you could find decent ones in 350 to 400e range.

"problem" with 1440p high-refresh-rate monitor is to find optimal matching graphics card, I do have ultrawide 1440p at 100Hz and 1080Ti is reasonable minimum for such res/rate

Agree with you, my RX 480 would struggle on 1440p and TBH i wouldnt purchase it even if i have a better GPU, would rather pump more frames with better graphics- as for the AOC I honestly have some issues with it which is availability as im unable to find one in stock ( either in my home country or Germany where i also can buy components)

thoroughly consider all the pros and cons of whatever choices you'll come down to,
years back I went for 27" 1440p 60Hz when I needed bigger workspace, now I have 34" ultrawide 1440p 100Hz because I needed even more workspace and also wanted to try more than 60Hz out of curiosity - which turns out is useful even for basic tasks as everything feels smoother and snappier;
that said, after every monitor upgrade, I had to get better graphics card - replaced GTX770 with 980Ti and now 1080Ti - and since right now is absolutely worst time to buy a graphics card, I don't think buying any 1080p screen would be justified for me…

why not get 165Hz then?
check ASUS TUF series, those are 27" 1080p IPS at 165Hz, not sure about G-Sync though

If it supports freesync it's most probably G-Sync compatible, so there should be no worries there.

but still there's supposedly some difference between freesyn'ed G-Sync and proper G-Sync

Very negligible, basically nonexistent as far as I could tell. Had zero issues with my monitor running on my old RX 480 or 1080ti I have now.

TBH didnt really think that the benefit would justify the extra cost, im looking right now and the difference is around 40e extra ( i do get some more "features" ) however nothing major. As for as Gsync wouldnt use it as i have an AMD GPU and will continue to have it until i switch it to something in 2022

So here's the deal, the monitors listed below were reviewed in 2020. The reason for that is that I haven't been able to find better ones for the price bracket you mentioned.


So here are a few monitors that might be interesting to you. I'll also link a video that reviews the monitor as well.


https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VG279QM-Compatible-DisplayHDR-DisplayPort/dp/B0845QFDVM


Review from Hardware Unboxed


The video also links several decent monitors that are within your price range.
Asus VG279QM
LG 27GN750
MSI MAG251RX
Gigabyte KD25F
Pixio PX5
LG 27GK750F
LG 27GL850
Viotek GFT27DB
HP Omen X 27


Hope this will be of use.


P.S.
From what I've seen Hardware Unboxed is one of the best places to check out for monitor info.

I have checked all of the monitors you have mentioned and well, all of them are 240 Hz+ which i honestly dont see a point, I really like the VG279QM however the cheapest i could find was 390e ( 460$ ) which is a little bit too much for me to spend. As for hardware unboxed i do watch them from time to time :D

So 144 Hz is the max, ok. Did you notice a difference going from 72 to 144Hz?
