I can see in your signature that you have a 1440p monitor.
Do you play any moba or RTS games and find the elements to be to small?

Just to clarify what I meant about some things being smaller - e.g. the health bars in LoL get smaller so it's harder to last hit minions at first (although you do get used to it after a few games).

Soem other games like SC2 scale the gui perfectly up to 1440p so it's not much of an issue.

Thanks. I have decided I will go for 1440p.

Last question :

Acer Predator XG270HU

Or

Asus MG279Q

What do you think? The Asus costs about 30 % more but it is an IPS panel

I have the MG278Q which I think is very similar. It's an awesome monitor.

The situation changed a bit since I got an offer for a 3 week old secondhand Dell U2515H.
The seller couldn't handle the 60hz coming from a 144 Hz monitor.

Off course the U2515H is secondhand, 25" and 60hz, but it is only 3 weeks old and about half the costs of the 27" monitors I had been looking at.

Any experience with Dell U2515H for gaming??

Pros : Cheap, IPS, Good warranty ( Dell 3 year Exchange service)

Cons : "only" 25", 60hz, no freesync

Ive got the same Dell as you and Ive played just about every genre of game on it, works just fine for me, nice colours and I actually prefer the smaller screen over 27 inch as it offers more of an improvement in image from 1080p due to higher PPI.

144hz would offer a smoother experience in action games but I found that the colours were very washed out on the Asus ROG swift that I played with a bit, it actually looked worse then my old Asus IPS 1920x1200 monitor overall, and that kind of ruined it for me.

I do mainly play 4X and RPG's though and basically nothing FPS online so smoothness is not my number one priority.

Just taken the plunge on a Dell U2515H (awaiting delivery), currently using Eizo FG2421, prior to that a Samsung TN panel (1680 x 1050). I have enjoyed the FG2421, but the increase in res over my last monitor did not feel big enough for windows desktop real estate. I'm hoping the Dell does provide that feeling.

I hated the blacks on the Samsung TN panel TBH, this is where I thought the Eizo VA shone. Hoping the Dell IPS is between the two for blacks. I do at times use the PC in low lighting and have dark windows backgrounds, so hoping IPS glow is low otherwise back to the Eizo VA.

Day 1 thoughts

Finally feel got more desktop space, when I went 1680x1050 to 1920x1080 didn't feel at all like I gained much on desktop but 1080P > 1440P defo feels like I've got more.

Not fired up Win 10 Pro yet but in Win 7 Pro made no adjustments to OS font / scaling. Luving the higher PPI of display, image seems pin sharp, TBH sharper than my Eizo FG2421.

Fired up SWBF and noted some tearing in it so enabled VSYNC and all good, will be try FRTC instead of VSYNC. Diablo III HUD also looked right @ 1440P, only old game tried so far was Mass Effect, no issue there either. Waiting for the evening to see performance in low light (ie glow/bleeding).

Day 4 thoughts

Well I have light bleed / glow, top left corner is worse and lower left has some. Is annoying with the dark backgrounds I use on desktop (so using lighter/colourful ones now). Generally don't notice it in games unless it's a dark scene, then it is annoying.

Also I'm finding I'm noticing lower FPS, I like blasts on SWBF. When playing blast maps I find when there is more action on screen / movement of screen it seems 60 FPS is too low. It's not stutter as such from what I can tell. FPS is not deviating from 60 FPS TBH, I have FRTC set as 60 and V-SYNC on. It just does not seem as fluid as playing on my Eizo FG2421 @ 120Hz 1080P. I've FRAP tested matches and also used the in-game counter via command perfoverlay.drawfps 1.

Seems odd to me what I'm noticing. Until the Eizo past monitors had been 60Hz or 75Hz. I do recall feeling the gaming was sweet on the Eizo, but I never thought if I reverted to 60Hz screen I'd notice the difference.

So undecided if keeping the Dell U2515H, gonna give it a few more days with it and then try the Eizo again and make up my mind. If I revert to the Eizo I will miss the larger resolution of the Dell for desktop use, I would also miss the PPI, makes images so sharp and clear IMO.
