2nd monitor after BenQ XL2411P

 Share

Hi All,

 

I originally had a XL2411 (144hz 1080p 1ms) and a RL2455HM (60hz 1080p 1ms) set of monitors but upgrading to a GTX1080Ti meant the XL2411 couldn't have 144hz as it was DVI-D. So I bought a XL2411P for the DP but now I'm stuck with 3 monitors. I don't have space to run all three together so which one should I get rid of? RL2455HM seems the worst in my eyes but is going for similar prices on ebay as the XL2411.

 

Alternatively, is it worth getting a better second monitor and selling both the XL2411 and the RL2455HM? If so, any suggestions on what to go for ie QHD/4k/IPS etc.

 

Thanks in advance all

you could have just gotten a DP to DVI-D adapter instead of buying a new monitor...

I could have true but the adapter was  £120 (as it has to be dual link for 144hz) compared to the new one being £150 so the price difference seemed low to not just get a new monitor that is slightly updated as well

What is a better secondary monitor gonna do for you? What’s the intent or purpose?

Just for watching stuff on or normal basic stuff, but at the moment i've got two 1ms monitors that really aren't needed as they're never the main screen for gaming. It's more in case sometime i want to play 4k games at 60hz maybe, or watch films on it in better quality as gaming monitors aren't that great colour wise
