LG 25UM65-P 21:9 or Asus VG248QE 144Hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I ordered these components with the monitor that I wanted, but NCIXUS ran out of stock, so I didn't get it (it was a really good deal and I don't think that it's worth it at it's regular price, so I am looking at different ones).

 

My Specs

Intel i5 4690K

Asus GTX 970 Strix

Asus Z97-A

Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133 C9 RAM

Samsung 850 Evo SSD (250GB)

Corsair RM750 PSU

NZXT H440 designed by Razer

Windows 8.1 Pro

 

I have been looking at the Refurbished LG 25UM65-P and the Asus VG248QE.

 

LG 25UM65-P

Refurbished (LG recertified Grade A)

2560 x 1080

21:9 Aspect Ratio

60Hz

IPS display

25" diagonal

111.14 PPI Pixel Density

Becomes retina at 31"

$180 USD after promo code (really good deal)

 

Asus VG248QE

1920 x 1080

16:9 Aspect Ratio

144Hz

TN Panel (I'm not worried about colors though because of this)

24" diagonal

91.79 PPI Pixel Density

Becomes retina at 37"

$275 USD Regular Price

 

My question is: With my specs is the 144Hz monitor worth the extra $95? I am going to use this monitor for web browsing, schoolwork, gaming (KSP, Skyrim, Insurgency, Assassin's Creed, Battlefield, and a little Minecraft), and occasional Photoshop and FL Studio.

I'd say the LG. I've used a 144Hz panel before, and it is nice. It's a noticeable difference. However, I do love my VA/IPS screens because I don't just game. If you're doing photoshop, I'd say the LG is a better choice and cheaper. The bigger aspect ratio and higher resolution is good for work too, my 2560x1440 panel can basically have 2 full-sized windows on it at once.

Asus, only because I am unsure if the 970 can ultra games with the LG at 60fps.

At 1080p you can 144hz most games at ultra. (Not all newer AAA games though.)

EDIT: I also neglected to say that all games do not have ultra wide support.

I would get a regular 1440p monitor in your spot, not ultra wide nor 144hz.

Yeah, 1440p is a better option. It is more expensive, however.
