Monitor Upgrade Time

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well my last monitor finally crapped out on me. That means I get to buy a new one, or two. I would like some help on deciding on the end purchase. I won't be buying it for another week or two, so I have some time to make the best decision.

I use a 570, so I do not know if that would be a problem. I haven't kept up with PC news, and benching since late 2011. So I have no idea how crappy my 570 is now.

All I really do is play Battlefield 4, Minecraft, and Terraria. Also the occasional movie watching. I do not like playing on multiple screens. I prefer 16:10 over 16:9, but that isn't a deal breaker for me.

Here is initially what I came up with.
  1. Dell UltraSharp U2412M
  2. ASUS VS24AH-P
  3. ASUS VG248QE
  4. BenQ XL2420Z
  5. BenQ BL2710PT

Also any opinions on these 21:9 monitors?
  1. Dell U2913WM
  2. ASUS MX299Q

If you have any other suggestions please link them.

TL:DR Which of these should I buy, or suggest a better one.


Thanks in advance. thumb.gif

With a 570 you're probably gonna do the 1080p thing, especially for shooters, which is fine. The thing is you have ips and tn panels listed. That's a *very* subjective choice...I personally don't even get the 120/144Hz thing. Tried it and went back to ips. Other peeps say they could never do 60Hz again.

My recommendation for 1080p ips is the EIZO FS2333

For 1080p TN I'd wait for g-sync. If you can upgrade your card that ROG swift if lookin pretty sweet.

Thanks for the reply dubldwn. I will look into that Eizo FS2333. About the graphics cards situation, I was actually planning on buying a 280X soon. (Or something around that price point)

The Eizo EV2336W is the same as the FS2333 except that it has significantly less overshoot ghosting, and has a better bezel. Check out PRAD's reviews of the EV2336W and FS2333.
