Looking forward to buy new monitor

Hello. My name is Philip. I am thinking of buying new monitor for my computer so i will be able to enjoy my games more on bigger screen. Here are the details of my current setup.

 

Motherboard : Asrock X99 Extreme4

Ram : Kingstone Predator 2133Mhz 4x4GB Quad channel

CPU : i7 5820k 3.3Ghz (atm overclocked at 4Ghz)

GPU : Gtx 1080ti Msi Gaming X 11GB ( upgraded last year i had GTX 970 4GB)

PSU : Coolermaster 750W 

Cpu Cooler : Coolermaster Hyper 212

 

At the moment i am using LG 24GM77 144hz 1ms 1920x1080p and i have another monitor 24inch for browsing while i play. I am looking forward to upgrade my monitors to one 27inch at 144hz and probably gsync ( i dont know if it is worth it ) so i can use properly my gpu as some friends here on the forums told me that i waste it on this resolution. Do you have any monitor to suggest ? Your thought about my system and if i am gonna be able to handle 2k ? I have two monitors at the moment on my list. The one is Asus Rog Swift PG278QR and the other one is Dell S2716DG. Thanks for your time and for your help!

I would upgrade by cpu first but thats just me, for competitive games I would recomand a 24 inch monitor and not a 27 inch monitor because there more looking around but thats just me.  I think your system can run 2k and even 4k if you dont mind some fram rate loss. You could also maybe think about a 240hz 1080p monitor...

Acer's XB271HU is another good option, but all three of those are solid choices.

My 5820K runs games just fine, and like you said monitor size is subjective. I like 27" 1440p monitors.

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

The Experiment --- CPU: i5-3570K @ 4.0 GHz || MoBo: Asus P8Z77-V LK || RAM: 16GB Corsair 1600 4x4 || Cooler: CM Hyper 212 Evo || GPUs: Asus GTX 750 Ti, || PSU: Corsair TX750M Gold || Case: Thermaltake Core G21 TG || SSD: 840 Pro 128GB || HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

 

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

I was looking for a monitor with gsync and it will be worth upgrading at the moment. As for the cpu I believe it can handle the games out in the market at the moment propably I need to wait few years for upgrade.

Good reviews on both models & your system will be able to handle 1440p without any problems.
