500 euro 1440p gaming monitor

15 hours ago, HadesLV said:

Hey there! Looking for some recommendations!

I have a budget of 500 euros for a new gaming monitor, buying in Latvia. I want to go for 1440p for sure. Picture quality is a much bigger concern than input lag for me, as I am not a big e-sports or shooter gamer and am more concerned with just getting the best looking visuals when playing triple A games. At least 120hz, but 144hz would be ideal. 

What would you suggest? I can see a bunch of options in my local internet store in that price range that look good, but I thought I'd rather come ask some second opinions!

Best option is the VG27AQ. Its an IPS display.

You can refer to these options and then check local retailers. Pcpartpicker does not have Latvia as an option.

Keep in mind you won't reach 100FPS+ unless you go to low settings with your hardware, an i5-7600 and GTX 1060 unfortunately do not have the power for 1440p high refresh rate gaming. So you won't get the full potential of what you are paying for regardless. I'd upgrade hardware first personally. But that is your decision. Or if you want to keep your hardware for now I'd strongly recommend just sticking to 1080p. 

 

Also keep in mind that IPS monitors provide much better viewing angles and color saturation is typically much better.

Should have mentioned, new hardware is already ordered. R7 3700X and a RTX 2070 Super. Thank you for the options!

Latvian myself. Bought LG 27GL850 2 days ago from RD Electronics for 459 euros (they increased the price to 500 now, demand must be high). Love it both in terms of picture quality and game responsiveness. Doesn't come color-calibrated that well from the start though, so you would have to play with the settings or find a separate color calibrator to borrow.

 

EDIT: Checked out SolarNova's recommendation and VG27AQ does seem like it could be a better choice if you can find it for the same price or cheaper. I checked it out on salidzini (for non Latvians, it's a price comparing website across all stores here) and only dateks seems like a good store to get it from (but in case of bad panel lottery, you'd want to RMA it and trying to do it with these internet stores could give you a bad headache, maybe dateks is okay though, I do not know). RDVeikals offers you to return it no questions asked within the first two weeks so I chose them.

 

EDIT V2: If you don't care about ergonomics / have a vesa mount, you could look at VX2758-2KP-MHD which costs 352 euros @ RDVeikals, also a great monitor.
