  1. yeah. 1st gen Ryzen always has memory issue T_T
  2. i5-6400 is still doing fine with GTX1080 I think. but if you want no bottleneck at all then either i5-8400 or r5-2600x.
  3. I'm currently using 2 x 8GB 3200MHz G.skill memory with CL14 (samsung B-die) I wanna upgrade to 32GB but CL14 ver. is no longer available from where I live, only CL16 ver. is available. Is it ok to mix CL16 ram with CL14? btw my motherboard is Asus Strix X370 (Ryzen).

    VA Panel 27" 1080p vs 1440p

    1440p is still better than 1080p. if it's just $50 more then go for it.

    PG248Q VS XL2430

    Well. there's VG258Q. pretty much the same as PG248Q, but with Free-sync instead of G-sync. has 144hz refresh rate instead of 180 and slightly worse build quality, but a lot cheaper, probably even cheaper than XL2430. but if you really have only these 2 choices, then just get XL2430 and save your money. btw if you do care about color, you won't get a "WOW" quality from any of these monitors, they're all TN panel.. Window color calibration profile should help a bit, but it will never outperform VA or IPS panel. if you wanna play game only and just want an "acceptable" quality, then these monitors seem to be ok.

    TN or IPS Panel

    Pro gamer choose TN over IPS because 1. TN usually has less input lag than IPS. every ms does matter to them. (don't confuse between pixel response and input lag, they're different) 2. washed-out color of TN actually benefit competitive gaming like CS. because you can see a bit clearer on the dark corner of the map. From my experience. For pixel response. 1ms and 4ms different are very small and trust me, you won't notice it (unless you play Osu). 4ms is already low enough to prevent ghosting effect. I would go for IPS because of better color and much much better viewing angle (I usually get annoyed by bad viewing angle of TN) $150 higher is quite worth it i guess, if you plan to use it for 5 years+

    Yes, this one is good.

    Samsung Vs LG Monitors iPS, VA panels

    on Samsung gaming monitor. there's an option on OSD to reduce input lag, and it works. input lag is greatly reduced, as low as 3.88ms (according to pcmonitors.info) but might make the color become a bit worse. you also can set pixel response time to "fastest mode" (1ms). which is really faster, but this also affects the color production. (but still good tho) What make this monitor not suitable for professional gaming are: 1. input lag and pixel response are still slightly worse than TN gaming monitor. 2. high contrast of QLED makes image become harder to see in the dark scene, compared to the washed-out color of TN. if you're not a professional gamer, then forget about it. I used to have CFG70, and never have problem with it. later I sold it and upgraded to CHG70 and I'm really happy with it. CFG73 is pretty much the same as CFG70. but with software fixed.
  10. Asus VG278Q is pretty good. cost around 300 usd

    Which monitor should i buy

    tbh. none of them are good. but if you only have those choices, then first one seems to be the best here. from your given website, if you want a good quality monitor, get at least this one. http://setec.mk/index.php?route=product/product&path=10019_10031&product_id=27624 or this one if you mainly want to use it for gaming. http://setec.mk/index.php?route=product/product&path=10019_10031&product_id=27625

    Samsung Vs LG Monitors iPS, VA panels

    CONCLUSION: from my experience, Samsung qled win. Color: Samsung win Contrast: Samsung win Viewing Angle: LG win Response Time: Samsung win. "1ms mrpt" ad is somewhat true. when I set response time to "fastest mode" I feel like it's slightly smoother, and has less image ghosting effect.

    1080p movies on 1440p monitor

    Yes, slightly different. I have both 1080p and 1440p monitor. 1080p movie looks a bit sharper on 1080p monitor than 1440p monitor because of no upscaling. But the differences are minimal, you will barely notice it unless you put both monitors side-by-side. On the other hands, if you watch 4k video, then 1440p monitor is gonna be clearer than 1080p monitor.

    1ms MPRT vs 1ms GtG

    Curved or Flat won't look much different on 24". Curved will only benifit large monitor or ultrawide. If you think Black Friday has more options, then you should wait for it. Tbh I'm not quite a big fan of MSI monitor and I never recommend it unless it's on discount or really cheap. If you're willing to pay a bit higher, maybe get Samsung CHG73, which is a much better option than MSI mag24c.

    1ms MPRT vs 1ms GtG

    mprt is just another unit to measure response time similar to gtg. On paper mprt should be more accurate. I try both 144hz 1ms mprt VA and 144hz 1ms gtg TN. TN looks a bit smoother to me, but they're not much different.
