Want to get a feel for size and speed. with that said microcenter has this monitor for 499 and the rog for 799 I do not plan to keep but I do plan to test. dell the better choice? thanks in advance
I just sold my Dell like new for $350.
I have 2 ips predators. The only cons about the Dell compared to the IPS counterparts. When looking at the viewing angles or below it. For example like the max recline setting on one of those gaming chairs. Also if you watch anime the colors are brighter on the ips. Also 165hz.
I just wanted to have to monitors side-by-side that were the same. Also I don't want 1080p At all. I have an Asus strix 1080. With 1440p 165hz I still feel like that is a good card for that monitor. When I try to run 4K or even ultrawide 1440p I just feel like **** because I know it's not good enough. Which is a ******* stupid thought because I have one of the best setups available as of right now. So instead of thinking that stupid oh I should upgrade I was like I'm going to be happy my 1440p.
The upgrade to 4K is nice but to me not really that big of a jump. I will be upgrading to .the 4K 144hz g-sync HDR whenever that becomes affordable. I do not want 4K at 60hz I do not want 4K without HDR. You can simulate ultrawide by running it at 4K ultra-wide resolution or even 2560 by 1080 on a 1440 panel and just shove it in your face and it feels the same. That's a better solution than giving up 165hz for 100hz.
Since between 144 165 is not that big but a 100hz and even 144hz just is not worth it for me.
Long term I would regret using 1080p(I bought a 1080p TV in 2010 and a 1080p Monitor and 2011 why the **** would I keep using this resolution) every day. I would also regret buying 4K because I know I can't run it and I should just wait 2 years for the tech to become available. Right now I believe this is the best long-term viable setup for the money.Edited by Madhawk1995 - 4/22/17 at 12:57pm
