looking at upgrading my monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys I'm wondering what would be the best monitor for story driven games mostly on pc and ps5, I play most my esports titles on a 1080p 144hz monitor and I'm looking at using a second for casual games. My budget wouldn't be massive (~250 euro)(ireland). 

I'd appreciate your opinion on this. As of right now I like the idea of 4k for the amazing photo but I haven't really seen 4k or 1440p except for shop tvs.

Thanks

Really only 3 options I can recommend within budget. I would recommend getting an IPS panel, much better viewing angles and color saturation over TN/VA panels which makes a difference if you care about detail and quality versus high refresh rate and low latency.

 

1440p 31" 75Hz IPS:

Is there a big difference in picture quality between a 4k panel and 1440p ( i already have a 1080p 144hz that I use for competitive games )

Edit: I should have mentioned but I thought it was standard but the aoc monitor doesn't have a vesa mounting and I have my monitors on a dual desk stand
