ASUS VG259Q ( 24.5 inch 1080P 144hz) - 260 USD 

 

ASUS VG27AQ (27 inch 1440P 144hz) -  430 USD

 

LG 27GL850     (27 inch 1440p 144hz) -   520 USD

 

These are the option i narrow down to ! now the real option is which one should i buy is it worth investing in 1440P if i upgrade GPU every 2 or 3 years?

the question is what you want to do with the monitor. 1440p 27" is a major upgrade to productivity compared to 1080p (I can attest that). But whether you will make use of the high refresh rate with your particular GPU depends on the GPU and the games you are playing.

I have one of the LG nanocell monitors and its amazing. That asus tuff series monitor also has been really positively review by rtings so you can’t really go wrong with either

I am planning to build a PC when the new RTX 3000 series comes out and probably getting a RTX 3070 i play league mostly and sometime plan to play triple A games like RDR2 and Mafia 3

 

Current set up is I7-2600, GTX 1660, 16GB RAM

is it worth the 170 Dollar for 1440P and 27 inch instead of 24.5 inch 1080P ?

For this I would take 1440p as league will definitely hit the necessary framerates and the other two don't *really* need that many frames

I would definitely say yes. I am still very happy about my 1440p monitor I bought about two years ago. It makes a big difference imo

That really depends on your budget. It will look a bit sharper and the extra size is nice if you play RPGs. I went from a 27” 1080p monitor to a 32” 1440p and am now on a 35” 1440p ultra wide. I would say it’s worth it if you have the GPU specs to run it. You did a great job picking out good monitors since they all have really good panels, good response time, and good brightness. No matter which one you go with, you’re going to get a nice looking image.

Thanks haha !! i was researching a lot about 24-27 inches ips monitor with 144hz refresh rate and these seem to be the best choices. But is weird how much the LG cost more then the asus were i live

LG 27GL650F that's the best, HDR, 144Hz, 1440P, FreeSync and G-Sync compatible

If your eyesight isn't great, get a 32" 1440p instead. 32" 1440p has pixels sized about the same as a 24" 1080p.

27" 1440p has smaller pixels (might make the image look sharper but will tire your eyes a lot if you don't have perfect vision).

Since I switched to the 32" LG 32GK650F (a greatly reviewed monitor) I can't recommend 27" 1440p - I had eyestrain using a 21" 1080p.

Smaller pixels = smaller text (if not using some scaling like 120%, 150%) = harder to read / you have to get closer to the screen/text.

 

If you're used to a 24" 1080p screen and switch to a 27" 1440p everything will look and feel smaller if you watch it from the same distance.

I went from a aoc g2590fx 24.5 inch 1080p to a acer nitro vg271 27 inch 1080p to a viewsonic vx2758-2kp-mhd 27 inch 1440p that I had to return due to screen flicker. I bought a acer vg27AQ that I’m waiting to get delivered this week. 
 

For me, going from 27inch 1080p to 27inch 1440p was a huge difference. I took a fat hit on my framerate but the clarity difference was huge. The jump in resolution made the image so much clearer. The viewsonic monitor was nice but it had screen flicker so I had to return it. Using the nitro after returning the 1440p looked awful in games, everything looked bigger and kinda blurry. 
 

I used the nitro monitor for a year and I’d say I play about 3 hours or more a day on it. I used the 1440p for 4 days, soon as I returned it I got on the hunt for another 1440p monitor because I can’t use 1080p for gaming anymore. 
 

If you’ll be getting a rtx 3070 you’ll be fine with the 1440p. I stay around 100+fps in the games I play with a rx5700xt.
