Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a decently priced 500$ max 1440p 144hz or higher gaming display of some reputable brand not any Chinese monitors any suggestions. Rocking a 1080ti if anyone curious about the gfx.

Check out the Dell S2716DG: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/BcTrxr/dell-monitor-s2716dg

- It's 27", 144Hz, 1440p, TN, and has a respectable brightness of 350 nits. It also has decent reviews.

- One problem with this monitor (and other high refresh rate 1440p at this price point) is that colour accuracy is garbage. This monitor is not suitable for any sort of colour sensitive work since the blacks look more like dark greys.


I recommend getting a good 1080p 144Hz panel, like this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vhQG3C/asus-vg279q-270-1920x1080-144-hz-monitor-vg279q

- It's 27" 1080p, 144Hz, and it's IPS. I'd personally take an IPS panel over a TN one any day, no matter what the screen resolution is.
