Do note that most 1080P monitors with high refresh rates uses TN panels and as said TN has very poor color accuracy compared to IPS

By the way that LG i showed has a 75 hz refresh rate AND it has AMD Freesync support
DVI by the way has been removed from all new Nvidia cards and AMD might remove it as well and monitors have started to remove them as well so DVI is dying
Some of the games I would be playing are Two Point Hospital, Command & Conquer 3, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, Planet Coaster, Caesar IV. Some games are my Steam wish list are Cliff Empire, Tropico 6, RimWorld

I don't think any of these would really need a super high refresh rate. I just want to play them with all the eye candy turned on on decent monitors.

I was looking on Newegg.ca for IPS monitors at 1080p 24" and there really aren't very many. I did find this one... https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...82E16824009720
