I puked when i tried a 60hz VA after being used to 144hz TN, i really don't advise making that trade, and you're also losing G-sync. It's almost a downgrade in every which way.

144hz --> 60hz downgrade

1440p ---> 1440p same

27" --> 32" sidegrade? Losing pixel density for a larger screen.

Gsync ---> No VRR downgrade

1000:1 contrast ----> 3000:1 contrast Upgrade

IPS glow ---> Deeper blacks w/o glow Upgrade

When i put it like that it seems kind of even, but aside from however bad your glow may be the blacks on the AHVA are quite good already, 108 ppi is great, 144hz is amazing, and add G-sync to that and you have a pretty good monitor, with just bleed/glow being the only real negative.

Also @ OP why not just get 1440p 144hz with Gsync or freesync depending on your GPU?

If you dont like IPS glow get one of the TN options, dead center they're as good as these IPS models and really only suffer from a more medium AG coating, otherwise they're just as good and can be had for a bit cheaper.

Even if you can only maintain 60fps @ 1440p dont settle for a 1440p 60hz monitor, better to future proof yourself a little bit with 144hz. Games may not always hit 144fps, but desktop usage dragging stuff around and scrolling etc will all look smoother. Also you get the benefit of 144hz being a perfect multiple of 24 so 24fps video playback which most movies are wont have any judder that a typical display refreshing at only 60hz would.

Everyone is different, priorities also differ. Gaming is not my no.1 priority so I seek first and foremost image quality and color accuracy, but this must also be accompanied by adequate size and resolution. Since gaming is not my priority, I would take 1440p @60hz any day over 1080p @ 144hz. Still game every now and then, just no fast paced shooters or competitive gaming. TN...? uhm.. no thanks. But again, if I was a die-hard gamer, a TN may do (nothing less than 8-bit color depth though, very few TNs have that).

Also the bigger the monitor, the more immersive it is to me. 27" is the absolute minimum size I can live with but even that is beginning to feel small for me. And with 27" no less than 1440p. 32" @ 1440p is doable because its the same PPI as 24" 1080p. I'm leaning towards 32" monitors for future upgrades myself.

So again OP, decide where your priorities are (gaming vs overall usage). If you have the chance, go to a PC store and check out various size displays (despite non-optimal viewing conditions) and various resolutions. One thing that will likely impress you is how much impact larger screens have on viewing experience.

why would you get rid of 144hz 1440p IPS ?

Dear OP, it's 2016 and going for 1080p,no matter the refresh rate, is just a step back. 60hz is also setting yourself back while you've got 144hz panels with adaptive sync and low blur technologies. I can also throw in my 5 cents about the TN panel on my S2716DG. I have several TNs at work, and have used Asus MX27AQ IPS for a few months before I bought the Dell. This panel is nothing like the TNs I've seen. Plus you've got no glow,almost no to no bleed and great black color uniformity across the panel, whereas on the IPS I had it was almost like a different shade of silver or yellow in every corner + some in the middle. I actually prefer my Dell TN to Asus IPS for movies, the colors are rich and life-like on the Dell plus there's nothing bothering you during scenes shot in the dark or black and white movies.

I have the same monitor as him and moved it to my backup rig. I'd be embarrassed to tell anyone that didn't know about gaming monitors how much I paid for that thing. Sure, it's good at gaming, but, that's about it. Even the viewing angles are poor compared to my other IPS monitors. Guess that's the coating or something, but, come'on. We're getting taken big time on gaming monitors. Especially with Gsync.

When I pulled the xb270hu off my main rig I asked my ol'lady if she wanted it to replace one of her $120 on sale 22"/1080p/IPS monitors. She didn't. Reason being those $120 monitors look far better then this $800 gaming monitor. Those monitors look like I paid $400 plus for. This XB270hu looks like I picked it up for cheap off some teenager.

Since you're pretty much set to go 1440 60Hz, you might as well go 4K and go down to 1440 while using single 390. Get another 390 in the future and use the 4K.

I use 4K with my 2 290s at stock gaming. 1440 for work. It only takes seconds to switch between rez.

Edit: here is a screenie of 4K in BF4 . . .



Skyrim is mind boggling.

I will have to spend $200 and I will have 3 decent monitors.
Gaming should look good across three screens and I will have to deal with one when its a very demanding game but then work productivity should be great!
Im using one these right now
http://www.amazon.com/Dell-E2414H-24-Inch-Widescreen-Backlit/dp/B00DM65EH8/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1454733071&sr=1-1&keywords=dell+e2414h

I got it for under $100 and I think I could get 2 more for the same price, what do you guys think?

I mean in my engineering class I use a 1440p ips monitor for my work and its amazing but its expensive and I think might not be worth the price tag unless someone can convince me otherwise.

In that case, make sure you get good monitors. I think HP has some low cost good 1080p IPS monitors?

I'd take that a step further; it's good for competitive gaming and fast paced action games like Shadow Warrior, that's it. But I really want to be immersed in my games, and IPS, especially this IPS, isn't good enough. But the OP of course has different priorities.

1440p at 96hz is what I run.

60HZ is crap, too much screen tear.


Get a 1440p panel that can OC.


1080p is a joke. The Desktop just feels small, cramped. Would be fine on a 20" monitor, just not a 27" one. 1440p gives you a nice large desktop to work with, meaning you will also see more on web pages.

1080p is for plebs, nothing more. tongue.gif
