In the market for a new moniter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've been using the same old 19" Asus 60Hz 1600x900 moniter from back when I first built my current rig. Back then I wasnt really looking for anything specific, as I had an old 4:3 moniter that was dieing before it and just chose a cheap one with speakers built in (which were complete garbage, but got the job done) since my speakers were broken at the time aswell.

I had never done any serious gaming up untill a couple years ago, as I couldnt even run any decent games on my rig untill I upgraded the $40 gpu I orginally threw in there (Just needed something that worked at the time since I had no on-board graphics) for an HD6850. Before I got the HD6850 the only games I really played were things like Mincraft and older games like AoE2, but with more powerful hardware I started playing some newer games at the time, like gta4 and skyrim.

After a few years with that moniter/gpu combo I started getting into more competive FPS games like TF2 and CSGO. 60Hz was fine then, but now I'm looking for something a bit faster. I have also upgraded to a GTX-970 since, so I can consistantly crank out over 250 fps in games like CS:GO. Problem is I can't really find any moniters with the features I've been looking for.

I don't need a giant moniter or massive resolution, just high refresh rate (144Hz+) and low response time (preferably 1ms). The 1600x900 resolution on my current moniter works just fine for me, so 1080p is more than enough for me, and since I dont have all that much desk space I'd like to stick to around 24".

The main thing is I'd like to get a moniter with G-Sync built in, but I can't find any at a decent price point and not 4k. Anyone have any recomendations?

Gsync is whats killing you price wise. The Gsync module alone will drive up the price of the unit anywhere between $100-$200.

You can utilize Freesync when you upgrade GPUs later. thumb.gif

Price isnt the main issue, It's mainly finding a moniter with these features that is 1080p and not 1440p or 4k.

I plan on getting a 1070 or 1080, so I want a moniter with g-sync.

ASUS ROG PG258Q

24.5", 1080p, 240Hz

No clue when they're getting released or the price. Though monitors that fit what you're looking for are pretty common.
