Components ordered... just need my display

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm at the last phase of putting together my first build which is picking out a monitor and it's just confusing me a bit and I guess like others on the forum have, I'm looking to get some recommendations that will fit my needs/wants.
I'm looking for a 27" 144 Hz display that will give me the best image quality and response time possible. I don't know if it matters but I only play FPS games. I'm looking to buy within a month or so and I don't have a budget limit.
I have been looking at the BenQ XL2720Z but as I start my research I see that there are issues and I'm not sure if it should still be considered.
I'd appreciate any suggestions passed my way.

Thanks.

click on "Show Press Release" to see more info.
looks like a good candidate but I'm not sure about the release date. From what I have read they are releasing it this month.

It does look like a possibility. How would it compare to a 144Hz display? Will the fact that this is a G-Sync display slightly outweigh the fact that it's not 144Hz? Thanks for the link and suggestion. I'd love to hear more as I'd like to make up my mind soon.

Thanks.

Thanks.

On the website it says it is 120hz+ so that means gsync will make the fps sync with the screen that is presumably 120hz. so you will get 14hz less but that should not be noticeable. Personally I would say the Gsync out weighs the 14hz less.

From what I've been reading it seems that Asus is the one to wait for. It's frustrating having al the components ready to get put together and not have a monitor to complete it all. I think the most I can realistically hold off is about a month. If the Asus isn't available then I'll have to jump on the BenQ and then possibly sell it when the Asus is available.
