Looking to buy a new monitor since my decade old 1080p HP cheapo monitor is finally starting to fail (takes about an hour to power on after booting PC). Since I have a fairly decent PC I wanted to get into the high refresh rate 2k monitors, but I don't want to waste my money on a piece of shit, or overpay for a mediocre/overpriced one either. Looking for some suggestions on a 1440p monitor that has G-sync, or will be compatible with the upcoming jan 15 driver updates allowing Freesync to work with Nvidia cards. So far the list of certified freesync monitors with a 1440p resolution are

Acer xg270HU
Asus MG278Q
Agon AG241QG4/AG241QX

I'd really prefer not spending over 400 USD on a new monitor but I suppose I am willing to go over if its a particularly good monitor for the price. Any help is appreciated.

I've got the Dell S2716DG. It's a 27" gsync and I bought mine for $379 on sale about 2 years ago, might be cheaper now.

Main drawback: It's a TN panel, although the blacks are incredible for it.

Plusses: hell of a lot cheaper than similar IPS panels.

preference: It's not a dumbass gamer look either, it's nice and slim and sleek.

Not OP but, would a AOC AGON CQ32G1 be ok?

I know it's a VA panel but it's 144hz, 1440p, 1ms and has a good freesync range for g-sync compatibility (30 - 144 Hz). The main point being it's cheap.

Was just wondering if IPS would make that much of a difference for another 50-100% $?

You know Gsync and Freesync aren't the exact same thing right? They're both just adaptive sync. That being said you also miss out on ULMB if you go Freesync.

>> No.69301835

Gsync and freesync pretty much do the same thing. With only some reports stating that freesync runs worse on some monitors, due to no specific standards like gsync. Also ulmb is trash, thanks to the fact that we are bringing back flicker and requiring a stable framerate of at least 85 or greater, in order to get the actual benefits.

check out Dell S2719DGF, dell has it currently in store for 349€ on their german retailer website dell shop w.e you call it

you don't need gsync because 1. freesync gets adopted by nvidia on january 15th. 2. at 144hz it really isn't that obvious that you have it.

the panel decision is much more a criteria to have a smooth looking image. TN is the best choice for that
