What do you guys reccommend according to my usage?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A little background.
  • Monitor is used my primary media viewing source. I use it to watch Netflix/Movies/Browse, whether I'm in the chair or laying in the bed next to the setup.
  • I do play games. Mainly League of Legends, nothing too hardcore or intensive like ultra competitive FPS, but I may dabble into next gen shooters like BF4.
  • My budget is somewhere around 300, not really willing to budge over mid 300s.
  • I run a Radeon 7850, overclocked to the specs that are relatively close to a 7950. 2gb of VRAM, but I'm not sure it has enough juice to run 120hz 1440p games at the desired FPS.

Here are the following options I have narrowed it down to, if you know of anything comparable, please post it .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236313&Tpk=144hz
(I like this one, the refresh rate is nice, it's at a decent price, but I can't help but wonder if I'd enjoy an IPS over a TN panel considering I'm not playing too many FPS games)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236337
(This one is nice as hell. Without a doubt the best build quality of all of the choices I've looked at. 27" IPS, but unfortunately it's at 1920x1080, which I hear is a little small for how big the screen is. This monitor almost positively has better colors than the previous.)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-27-2560x1440-WQHD-PLS-Computer-Monitor-Matte-/121117252582?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c33269be6
(You were probably expecting this one. A great compromise between refresh rate and color production, but I can't help but wonder if my video card can actually run anything at 120 frames at the 1440p resolution. Also, it's really a coin flip on wether or not you get dead pixels/significant backlight bleeding. )

Any input? It would be much appreciated.

The Qnix is absolutely the best choice man. Hands down.

It is amazing as a media viewing monitor...the colors and smoothness is just jawdropping. Just because you can't run BF3 on Ultra at 120Hz 1440p is not an excuse to skip over this monitor...

You definitely don't want the VG248QE for the things that you use monitors for. This monitor is for people who only care about having the most advantageous hardware they can get their hands on for competitive FPS gaming (meaning Counter-Strike GO, Quake, competitive TF2) while forgoing color quality/viewing angles/higher resolution.

The VX279Q is a waste of money because it's 60Hz and 1080p for the exact same price as the 1440p 120Hz Qnix...it just does not make sense at all to buy it.

Go with the Qnix, you won't regret it...I mean just look at dem colors man (and that's out of the box without calibration):
