It's time for my first gaminig monitor 27" ?

Since 2015 on my main PC I have the Dell U2715H.I'm thinking now to go a step further and replace it with a gaming 27" monitor. What you will suggest? The main system its a 9900k with Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Master, 32GB RAM and EVGA GTX 1080ti.

Thanks you.Well my first choice it's Asus PG279Q but I heard many problems with backlight & bleed. It's true the current and upgraded model it's the PG279QZ ?

Don't think that would be better monitor, maybe with more features (HDR, wide gamut...) But that would not be sRGB monitor but wide gamut monitor which is worse in my opinion.

The LG has a 1ms response time where the PG279Q has 4ms and the LG is better in other areas as well
It also has a 98% color reproduction accuracy due to the new nano IPS panel

The PG279Q is a monitor from 2016 and its being replaced by newer models the LG is only the first so bad idea to buy a PG279Q unless you need a monitor right here and now

There is no 1ms IPS panel and there will not be, that is just marketing. Every HDR monitor is wide gamut and that is very bad in SDR.
