ASUS VG248QE or QNIX QX2710? What would be better for me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am currently trying to pick out a new monitor for my new gaming PC. The PC will be running dual gtx 780's. I can't decided if I should get a 24 inch vg248qe (1080p) or a 27 inch qx2710 (1440p) (PLS) that may have dead pixels and backlight bleeding, and possibly overclock it to 96hz or 120hz.
I currently have two 24 inch samsung TN pannles, that I will put on each side of the new monitor. If I get the 1080p monitor, I know I will be able to play games on high settings at max resolution for at least a few years, but with the 1440p I'm not sure how long the GPU's will be able to stay at a good framerate.
I'll be playing games like bf3, bf4, crysis, far cry, AC4 and lots of new games that come out this year.
Anyone here that has experience with either? I've never used PLS/IPS or 144hz before so I don't know what one to pick frown.gif

My personal opinion is that eyefinity set ups aren't worth it unless you have three of the same monitors and all are debezelled.

I would rather have the Qnix QX2710 and have sick 120Hz 1440p gameplay with two amazing 780's driving it, rather than what would essentially be a not-so-great eyefinity set up - with large bezels between the screens.

Basically with the Qnix and two sick GPUs you will experience games in one of the most beautiful and mindgasmly ways possible and the eyefinity set up will simply be "Man, I thought this was going to be cooler."

p.s. You can always use www.ipsledmonitors.com which will let you return the monitor (XStar DP2710 - same thing as the Qnix, just diff name) within 30 days if you have any problems with it.

In a vacuum, the Qnix would be better... but as it stands with your two monitors, the VG248 will probably serve you better. It matches your other two monitors in size and pixel pitch, so everything will look uniform across your monitors. Lightboost is a bonus. You do lose resolution and panel tech.

Basically,
QX2710 > Asus VG248qe
but
QX2710 + 2x Samsung TN < Asus VG248qe + 2x Samsung TN.

Having mismatched monitor sizes is a little jarring (I run a Catleap Q270 "2B", a Qnix 2710 and a U2312hm, and using the combination runs into a few minor annoyances that are noticeable). The other thing is just that the Qnix will make you hate TN panels; I run all IPS/PLS displays now, and I can't stand TN panels. They piss me off to no end when I have to use one. A point in the favour of the Qnix, but not a point in the favour of your set up.
