I'm in position to buy a new freesync monitor this weekend. Currently, I'm have GTX 980 but I will be moving to buy an AMD gpu in the near future. With that being said, I'm stuck between buying these two monitors; ACER XF270HU ($400) & LG 34UM69G ($350).

They are both ultrawide IPS screens but here's the difference. The ACER is a 27" 144Hz ultrawide monitor @ 2560 x 1440 while the LG 34UM69G is a 34" 75Hz ultrawide @ 2560 x 1080. Now I already own a LG 34UM68P which has the same specs like the LG 34UM69G & I did enjoy playing games on it but now, I am now using this monitor at work. My concern with the 27" ultrawide is that it will appear too small since I've been using 34" ultrawide. Budget? I do not want to spend over $435.

BTW...This will be used strictly for gaming & browsing

For web browsing, the LG. For gaming, the Acer.

If I had to choose for myself, I'd go with the Acer for the refresh rate.

I'm buying the ACER after realizing it's not an ultrawide

The price is just unbeatable when compared to ASUS 27" freesync ips monitors.
