ASUS - PG248Q Vs PG279Q

Before I get started... I have an Asus 1080 O8G GPU, intel 8700k CPU, 16GB RAM, 650W Power Supply so both monitors would be easy to handle probably...

 

PG248Q - 24", 1080p, 144Hz-180Hz, 1ms, G-Sync, TN - 400€

PG279Q - 27", 1440p, 165Hz, 4ms, G-Sync, IPS - 700€

 

For the past few months I have been debating between these two monitors and I am still not confident if I want to upgrade to a 1440p monitor... What are your opinions on these 2 monitors? Is the PG279Q really worth the 300€ more? I mainly focus on playing fortnite as of now and I don't play on highest settings beacuse I want performance in that game mainly, but sometimes a new singleplayer or good graphics game comes out and I want it to look good when I play it... Whichever one I would choose would probably perform 10x better than what I have and if anyone has experience with IPS vs TN panels, how big is the difference? And do you think 700€ is too much to pay for a monitor at this moment?

100% get the PG279Q. TN panels are not very good for viewing angles, and just for image in general. Also 1440P at 27" will look fantastic.

For 1080p I wouldnt bother with Gsync since it's 2x as expensive as other 144hz monitors in the same class. 

 

For 1440p, it's a good step up in price from non G-sync monitors in the same class (which are usually around 450-550) I've personally considered upgrading from 1080p 144hz TN (VG248QE), but the price is still just a bit too high for my tastes. $500-600 would be better IMO

Your video card can handle it so IMO go for the PG27UQ although personally I would save up for an ultrawide (PG348Q etc)
