I am so confused in which to Pick please help

Recommended Posts

I am trying to decide which monitor to buy between these 2

- LG 27GL83A

- LG 27GL850

I will be upgrading from a tn panel which is my old reliable AW2518H , i mostly play fps games (RB6,CoD) but lately i have been playing games like the witcher 3, Dying light, assassins creed, and etc. And i have noticed that those games don't look as nice as when i hook up my PC to my 4K t.v. but i also do not want a 4k monitor, 1440 seems like the sweet spot for me. So i was wondering which one of these 2 would be good for me since i am just going to be using it for gaming and youtube. I have done some light research and some people say that the 850 is better for photo editing and stuff like that, but i will probably never do that so idk which one to pick unless the 850 gives me a better gaming experience.

If ur considering the GL850, consider the VG27AQ instead, its imo a better display.

The problem with the GL850 is its contrast, its rather crap even for an IPS. I think going from a TV, assuming ur TV is VA, ull miss the contrast, even on the VG27AQ which has admirable contrast for a IPS display, but it should be better than the TN u have.

 

The only way ull get a TV like experience in a monitor is if u go VA.

For example:

CPU: Intel i7 3930k w/OC & EK Supremacy EVO Block | Motherboard: Asus P9x79 Pro  | RAM: G.Skill 4x4 1866 CL9 | PSU: Seasonic Platinum 1000w | VDU: Panasonic 42" Plasma |

GPU: Gigabyte 1080ti Gaming OC w/OC & Barrow Block | Sound: Asus Xonar D2X - Z5500 -FiiO X3K DAP/DAC - ATH-M50S | Case: Phantek Enthoo Primo White |

Storage: Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD + Samsung 850 Evo 256GB SSD | Cooling: XSPC D5 Photon 270 Res & Pump | 2x XSPC AX240 White Rads | NexXxos Monsta 80x240 Rad P/P |
