Need Help Picking out a Monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I am looking at either get one (1) monitor or two (2) of the same monitors (depending on the price). I need it for CAD work, programming, gaming, and productivity. Being good for CAD and productivity is more of a priority than gaming. However, I would like to do some gaming including competitive games. I would prefer a good balance of both and either a 32" or an ultrawide. I'm planning on getting a 3080 FE (when restocked) so my budget is about $1,400, however, I would prefer to spend less then that if possible.

 

 

Thanks in advance for the help and recommendations.

A few quick questions before I recommend anything:

  1. If you're doing some competitive gaming, I'd recommend a high refresh rate display, maybe 120hz/144hz. Any preference there?
  2. Have you looked into resolutions? With a 3080 you'll be able to hit 144hz pretty easily at 4K in competitive games like CS:GO and Overwatch, and it'll help with overall image clarity in CAD work, but 1440p will be significantly cheaper.
  3. Do you need HDR for photo or video editing? 

Always remember the 80/80 rule of project management. That is, the first 80% of the project takes 80% of the time, and the last 20% of the project takes the other 80% of the time.

1. I'm fairly new to competitive gaming and I do not have a preference.

2. 4K would be a really nice to have especially if it will help with image clarity for CAD work.

3. I do not currently do photo or video editing, however, I do want to try video editing though.

Hm... buy a 4k non gaming monitor n a 144hz 1440p gaming monitor 

if u are not too serious in gaming even a curved 1080p monitor will be fine
