If you like playing competitive fast paced FPS then 144hz but if you dont....


If you plan on upgrading your graphic card to a future GPU then I would go for 1440p considering future games are not going to run 60fps 1440p highest settings on current gen.

Depends entirely on what you plan to use the monitor for.

It is way easier to run a game at 1440p with 60 FPS than it is to run the same game at 1080p with 144 FPS.

With a higher resolution you can always turn down a few graphics settings to compensate for the performance hit, or even add a second GPU.
When you're looking to run the same game at more than double the framerate of 60 FPS you're going to run into CPU bottlenecks a lot and in that situation you rarely have the option to lower things to help.

So I built my rig this weekend and have played some games and it has really shifted me to want this monitor
Acer XG270HU omidpx 27-inch WQHD AMD FREESYNC (2560 x 1440) Widescreen Monitor
Or something like it. What do you guys think if it?

I paid $800 for my XB270HU w/gsync maybe 6 months ago and would happily sell it to someone for $400 cash if they walked in here and offered it to me. Hell, I'd sell it online but I don't feel like dealing with shipping a monitor.

They are good gaming monitors. Not much else.

Thats disappointing me, I don't know what to get then... What would you recommend.
I kinda want 1440p over 4k and have a higher refresh rate. Im looking for something around $400.

Try a gaming monitor out. Just make sure to get it somewhere that will do no hassle returns. I mean, high refresh rate gaming is pretty sweet. Just, current gaming monitors seem to suffer from a lot of issues. The quality doesn't justify the expense. I honestly don't think anyone that saw my 1440p/IPS/144Hz/Gsync monitor would offer me more then $300 for it. And I have a good one with very little light bleed.


Here's a video about Asus's new monitors. Same deal seems to be applied to Acer gaming monitors.

See there aren't many monitors not for gaming that have a higher resolution and refresh rate..

Expect a Dell Ultra HD 4k Monitor P2715Q 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor is even cheaper..
