which monitor should i get for my 1080

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
the website Now in stock finally paid off and i was able to successfully order a 1080! The strix was on my list and was what became available so i grabbed it. My question is What monitor should i seriously get? I am thinking either the acer xb271hu or the asus pg279q(rogswift) but am concerned with the qc issues that seem be surrounding them. I am currently using a gtx 970 and an asus 1080p ips display and am afraid to try a tn variants of the monitors listed above. Any advice?

If you are already on IPS, do not go to TN. The colours are horrid compared. OLED or IPS is the only way to go I think.
As for the monitors you listed, the Acer is not worth it. The Asus is a very good monitor however, so you can safely buy that. Personally I would rather buy the Asus 34" 21:9 100hz G-sync. My brother has one and the experience is just above any monitor I have ever tried in my life (and I have tried many). 100hz is also plenty to get a very smooth gameplay, together with G-sync it's awesome. Just the sheer size of the monitor gives you a wow effect. So if you can afford it, you won't regret it wink.gif
