Monitor suggestions for the 3080

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hi everyone, I am looking into getting a 3080 at some point in the future and was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion for a monitor. I plan on using it as my main gaming monitor with my second monitor being the Asus VG278Q 27" 1920 x 1080 144Hz 1ms. So far I have come to the conclusion that if you want a high resolution such as 4k you take a hit in hz. Therefore I would appreciate extra insight and suggestions for a monitor that is good option for hz and resolution

what games do you play? competitive?

how about ultrawide monitors?

rest of the system spec?

 

HUB have some pretty good monitor review videos

Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

i recommend 1440p 144hz then, or even 240hz if you can afford it

 

4k high refresh is still very expensive, and im not too sure if 3080 can run games above 144fps well at 4k, probably not

I am in a very similar situation to yourself after getting a new card, playing warzone in best settings and getting stuttering at 1080p with roughly 180-200fps (xl2546s), guessing CPU bottleneck.

 

After watching some reviews/videos I saw it was possible to get 140ish FPS on 4k monitor in warzone low settings, and 100+ in high, but their processor was better than mine (10850k, I have 3700x).

 

The LG 27GN950 looks nice, but at £750, and I have heard it doesnt handle dark rooms well, hopefully we will see more over the next few months.

I'll start with two ultrawides since they're most expensive ones.

Besides the size and price, the only real difference I found at quick glance was HDR performance.

 

Assuming you can handle the massive curviture and some panel lotto, the G7 is a good choise also. Just do keep in mind that it has some quality control problems, so you might need to return it few times. All that said, it's the best VA panel out there and one of the few 1440p 240hz panels.

Then there are the 1440p 144hz monitors, though I would personally choose something more demanding for a 3080.

https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/lg/27gl850-b

 

All three of them are fairly similiar, LG being the fastest, Asus has better ergonomics and black uniformity and the Gigabyte has most additional features.

 

Here's a links where you can look for even more options. While you said no to the 4k, I'll still add an article about it.

Lastly, I'll recommend that you read the sticky as it has lots of good information.
