Down to two monitors....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have been eye balling two different monitors and based on my system below, what would you pick and why?

Currently I have a 60hz AOC 24" that is OC'd to 70hz, but I want more. biggrin.gif I know my GPU is what is gonna limit me in the end. The game I mainly play is BF4, pretty much nothing else, maybe the occasional Assassins Creed, Mirror's Edge. Nothing major.

Here are the two monitors and I have to get them at Amazon.

Asus VG248QE 144hz 24" $279 shipped

QNIX QX2710 Evolution II 27" $338 shipped

Monitor is cheaper through superbiz (even with the $13 shipping)

I would pick the Qnix and get a decent stand for it.

I have been in the same thing as you for a new monitor, while I loved my 144hz monitor I just couldnt stand the TN panel anymore. While I did have a budget of 800dollar I choose the korean monitor simply because it can have overclocked HZ and decent colors at the same time (I can't stand 60hz anymore)

Here's the monitor I got and I'm able to OC it to 85Hz

http://www.amazon.com/PB278Q-27-Inch-LED-lit-Professional-Graphics/dp/B009C3M7H0/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1394385756&sr=1-1&keywords=Asus+PB278Q

Good discount and free shipping in the USA. The base of the monitor is very very since you can swivel the monitor from landscape to portrait plus the usual tilt up and down, so no need to buy a separate one. Lastly, it has VGA, DVI, DP, and HDMI so you don't have to worry about connections at all.

I calibrated it using TFTCentrals ICC file and used their base settings (tweaked it of course).

Beautiful colors and it's PLS/IPS so you get the same awesome angles plus you can OC it as well!

Your HD7870 will not be able to take full advantage of the Qnix's 120Hz at 1440p or the ASUS' 144Hz. If you care even just a little bit about image quality, the VG248QE is out the question.

The ASUS PB278Q skips frames when its refresh rate is overclocked, as do all multi-input monitors.

Consider the Dell P2414H which can be OCed to 80Hz.

I get over 100 FPS on high @ 1080P no aa/af before the Mantle update. I think I can run either. Oh and BTW, I don't have to run the Qnix at 120hz either, to be honest I would be happy with 96hz.
