    1080p 24" - 27" - 32"

    I would say 27" is the maximum suitable size for 1080p. anything bigger than that will start to get blurry and annoying.

    Samsung CHG90 - Microstutters (Mostly in Forza 7)

    sound like driver issue. p.s. your cpu is a big bottleneck. you're not gonna get any higher fps with 7 y/o cpu. your old monitor is already great and you should spend money on new cpu not another monitor #facepalm

    Advice on purchasing a 1080p monitor

    http://itsvet.com/monitor_lg_24mp59g_p-pdaa1-31.i?id=6201 I personally like LG for budget gaming. because it's 75Hz monitor, while other models on this price range are 60Hz. you also get freesync and 1ms response time, which is a good deal for <$200 IPS monitor.

    Need Opinions for Monitor Choice

    I'm using the Samsung, never regret, the only thing that I hate is the long ass plastic stand. (make sure that you have a big desk) Dell is good because of G-Sync and higher refresh rate than the others, but I don't like TN panel. and I won't pay $400 for a 24" TN even tho it got G-sync. Acer is ok. The color quality won't be as good as Samsung (8bit IPS vs 10bit QLED VA), but still pretty good. The downside is a very limited adjustable stand, and it's 27" but cost the same as 32" Samsung. (tbh I prefer 27" over 32") Samsung seems to have a better deal right now (as I bought the 27" ver. for $650 ffs)

    Acer Predator XB271HU Broken LCD Investigation

    that really looks like an impact damage on the monitor which cause the liquid crystal to leak. impact is not necessary to be on that point, impact from side can cause that too. (maybe not a very hard impact because no liquid leaking mark on the picture, but enough to cause damage to panel) it's not the pixel issue either because for the worst case. you'll just get dead spot or burned-in mark, not distorted line like this. also doesn't look like firmware issue. but try to factory reset the monitor and lets see if it works. another possible case beside impact damage is hardware controller issue. this is a very rare case, it's possible for faulty controller to cause distorted line. a single insect bite on internal cable could cause distorted line too. but this reason won't be convincing the warranty team because that definitely looks like impact damage. distorted image from faulty hardware doesn't have a clear impact point like this. maybe you can try to bring it to a 3rd party repair store. since the warranty is already gone, why not just let them open it up and have a look inside.

    2k or 4k so many options

    you need to get higher fps in order to take advantage of higher refresh rate monitor. for example, if you get 70 fps in game, but your monitor is 60hz, then what you'll actually see is 60 fps not 70 even though it shows 70 on the fps counter. but if you use 144hz monitor, then you'll see up to 70 fps because 144hz monitor can support up to 144 fps. meanwhile, you also won't get an advantage of 144hz smoothness if your GPU can't push the fps up to 144fps. for gtx 970, it should be able to achieve 144 fps @1440p on most e-sport games. but definitely not enough for high setting AAA games.

    VA viewing angle is acceptable. it's a lot better than TN. but not as good as IPS. Yes. much smoother mouse movement. and huge benefit for FPS game like cs:go. P.S. avoid Kogan.

    4k Monitor Recomendation

    if you want the best "bang for the buck" then get LG 27UD58-B https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACVB6JS3116 but Dell U2718Q is currently having a good deal right now. maybe you should get this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260554

    VA = QLED?

    Yes. worth it. I'm currently using QLED. I compared standard VA and QLED VA side by side at the shop, QLED's color win hands down, much improvement on red and green color. P.S. QLED (Quantum Dot) is a kind of "color upgrade" for that panel. QLED is not only for VA panel. sometime you'll see TN panel + QLED.

    I tried both Samsung and AOC 4k TN and I would say the color production and viewing angle are pretty disappointing. (according to my standard, would be fine for most people imo. if you really need "budget 4k that doesn't suck" then you should consider buying Samsung) Unlike cs:go or pubg, LoL doesn't seem to take full advantage of high refresh rate monitor beside smoother mouse movement. I'm not a big fan of ultrawide, and I currently see no real advantage of having it. so.. LG 27UD59-B 27" seems to be the best choice.
  13. yeah. 1st gen Ryzen always has memory issue T_T
  14. 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.
  15. 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).
