Which Monitor Should I Get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, 

I'm planning to build a new PC, so I need a monitor. 

 

What I use my monitor for:

- Gaming

- Graphic Design (Illustrator and Photoshop)

- School Work 

What graphics card do I plan to use:

GTX 1070 (More likely) or a GTX 980 ti

What do I want for my monitor:

1440p+ Resolution

Wide screen for multitasking (WQHD?)

Slim bezels (Not a must I do like slim bezels)

Budget

About $350 USD

 

Thanks :)

not happening for 350 unless Craigslist or bought used, for what you are asking you need to at least be at $650ish range i recently bought a nice monitor and looked everywhere., Sorry to say but you have to invest more money if you want it good sir.

Cheapest and best imo with excellent quality control and you get g-sync since you are using nvidia gpus this is especially a sweet deal i have used the monitor for a month now and could not do with out.

for $350 i know what i was talking about good sir. the above is not happening at $350.

further more at $200 more the monitor is a 10/10 has everything and g-sync, i am looking out for his build long term no sense to buy a 1070 or 1080 then get a subpar monitor.

All the monitors i listed are 1440p WQHD, maybe not all of them have slim bezels, but as he said it's not a must!

 

Here's another good one, best option in my opinion, it's a little over $350 though.

@Cottontails Thanks for your help, I think that the Asus PB258Q is a very good recommendation, it's very similar to what I'm looking for. 

@godzrule Thank you good sir, I do agree that buying a good monitor is important for my future, however I don't need the top notch ones like the one you've recommend to me, as I've mentioned above, the one Cottontails have recommend for me have suited my needs.

they do and he did, however having a 1070 or 1080 and then using it on a monitor that was not meant for gaming will not be ideal and for 200$ increase he literally gain everything. Its true that it is outside of 350$ but investing 200$ even if saving needs to happen or waiting is well worth the returns with g-sync also he would gain slim boarders. I agree that in finding a 350 i was not successful i still believe that investing 200 will be a much better idea and wont ever require updating for sometime like a 350$ investment would. anyways i have to go to work. To OP your call at the end of the day its your setup thats being affected.
