24" or 27" Monitor for Under £250/$400

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm currently using an old 22" Dell 1680x1050 monitor which is good but showing its age and I think it's time for an upgrade. I'm looking for a solid monitor between 24 and 27 inch, I am an avid gamer so things like response time do matter to me but also picture quality matters as well. Price wise I'd rather not go over £250/$400. Resolution doesn't matter to me as long as it is 1080p or better. I'm not too informed on the subject so I thought someone more knowledgeable might be able to help me out, thanks! biggrin.gif

Can you get a Korean monitor shipped to EU? It may also cost a little over 400USD for a multi-input version.

I'm guessing so, what did you have in mind?

Get the Yamakasi Q270 monitor. It's a 27", 1440p IPS LCD monitor which can potentially be overclocked to 100Hz (on some models).

They use LG A- S-IPS panels (the same ones they use in Dell U2711's), however get the pixel perfect version to be safe (guaranteed zero dead pixels).

You can order them on Ebay.

The ones with warranty cost more. Otherwise, I would get the ones without warranty since they're so affordable and extremely good quality.

Thanks, I will probably get this smile.gif One thing, how much VRAM do you need to power a QFHD monitor? I'm getting a GTX 670 and I'm just wondering whether to get the 2GB or 4GB version.
