If I were looking for a VA panel that would definitely be on the list.
32" (16x9) is still too large for a 2' distance IMO, I feel like the sides would be beyond what you can see when looking straight and I feel like the aliasing would be worse than on a 27" screen.
27" gives you 108ppi where 32" is 90ppi. 90ppi isn't actually bad though, it's like 24" 1080p.
For me part of the reason 27" 1440p is optimal is because in most games you can get away with minimal AA which makes it so much easier to run higher framerates.
All opinions btw.

You're out of luck with finding nice 1440p 144Hz. You could try the Innolux based Gigabyte, more here:
https://www.overclock.net/forum/44-m...r-options.html

After trying 10+ of 1440p 144Hz all defective in some way or having a major issue I've settled for Q3279VWFD8.

It will be at least until 2020 before some nicer 1440p 144Hz are available on market especially at sensible prices.

But the biggest issue of the one u chose is 75hz thats basically unusable for any gaming.

ROG X HERO | 8700K | Noctua D15 | 2*8GB 3600C15 TridentZ | Strix RTX 2080 | 512GB Samsung 950Pro | 1TB ADATA SP920 | TT P5 | Corsair RM1000x | 25" Alienware AW2518HF 240Hz 1080p | JBL LSR 305 | Mackie MR824 | HyperX Alloy FPS RGB | Logitech G305 Wireless | LG 55B7V OLED | PS4 Pro.

I believe @The Pook also said they had a good IPS panel, maybe the process of making the panels is getting better?
The best advice I can give on picking a 27" IPS panel is simple:
Don't overspend. I got mine for $330 with a 15% coupon for eBay mobile. I opted for the crappy stand version and replaced it with my other stand. Win-win IMO
Don't buy into G-Sync either, FreeSync now covers all GPUs. Another reason I forgot...I recommend the Nixeus panels because their VRR is solid. Since FINALLY allowing freesync to work I haven't noticed a single issue with FreeSync. Now that I'm playing FFXV, that is very appreciated.

Yeah, I got a great panel! But it's impossible to find nowadays and there are similar/better monitors for ~ the same price or cheaper though.

well I have two nice monitors, I have a HP ultra sharp 2560 X 1600. that cost me like $990 several years ago. than I got a Asus MG279Q like two years later for $590. I may have just got lucky, but I have not ever had any of the issues with this monitor, that many other complain about with the cheaper models, made by other companies.
