Thinking of switching from Asus 34 100hz to Asus 27 165hz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Just looking for some suggestions.

I'm currently on an Asus PG348Q Curved 3440x1440 100hz & I'm thinking of switching to the Asus PG279Q 2560x1440 144hz.

I feel that my 1080ti will be able to produce higher frames on the 2560x1440 so I can take advantage of the full 144hz compared to my 3440x1440 100hz. Also, I'm not sure the difference between 100hz to 144hz by I'd imagine it's nice.

Games Played: Black Desert Online, Playerunknown Battlegrounds, Six Siege

Let me know if my thinking is flawed.

I'm in the opposite wheelhouse at the moment.

I have a 144Hz monitor but I really want an Ultrawide and have been wondering how much I'd notice the drop from 144Hz to 100Hz.

It would still have G-Sync (as I won't go without it).

I imagine the difference is noticeable, it has to be. Sure it won't be like the difference between 60Hz and 144Hz (or even 120Hz) but to what degree, I don't know.

I think it's a fine choice for you since you play mostly shooters. Actually for shooters, gsync is really over-rated. What you really want is the highest hz possible, the lowest input lag, and good motion-blur reduction. In that case, you might want to consider the benq line of gaming monitors too which have even lower input lag than the ips 144/165hz gaming monitors as well as very good motion blur-reduction from black-screen interpolation. The asus you suggested also has good motion-blut-reduction with backlight strobing called Ultra-Low-Motion-Blur where you set vsync to 120hz and it syncs the backlight.

The main tradeoff vs the benq monitor is the Benq monitors have better response times and grey-2-grey pixel response and the IPS will have better colors. The IPS is already very good in terms of it's gaming specifications; so if you are not extremely CSGO-pro-level competitive; it's probably the better choice.

I switched from the Acer version of the 144hz panel to an ultrawide myself. I don't play shooters really or fast-paced games anymore and the extra screen real-estate means more to me in the games I play (MMOs, turn-based strategy, AAA games in single-player).

Also of note is that for high hz monitors, a faster CPU means more than it normally would for driving that high FPS.

Good luck with your decision.

I have both a 165hz (pg279q), an ultrawide 100hz (Samsung C34f791) and a normal ultrawide (Dell 3415w) on my desk. The change from 100 to 144/165 is quite noticeable, especially if you play stuff with fast panning movement (overwatch, bf1, quake). PUBG is a rare case though, it would be more enjoyable on the 34" if the Dev provides proper 21:9 support.

When I got the ultrawide 100hz, I expected it to be quite bad in terms of motion blur and planned to use it only for RPG/RTS/TBS. However, It's surprisingly ok/acceptable for shooters too. Still prefer the 165hz for snappier movement, but if I had to choose 1 monitor only, it'd probably be the 34" 100hz since it's more versatile.
