What Budget Monitor Should I Buy For Gaming And Creative Work?



What Budget Monitor Should I Buy For Gaming And Creative Work?

I was thinking I could get a 1440p for round 400 to 300$ (Australia)

I Would Like One I have a RTX 2070 (Like My Name Sugests)

And I Do Very Light Gaming Tasks and video editing 

Thank you!

Ideally you would want something that covers close to 100% of the sRGB colour space for creative purposes. However, if you're working with prints, this is a pickle, since you're going to need coverage of the bigger AdobeRGB colour space so your prints don't look weird. This will be significantly more expensive.


For gaming, you're going to want Freesync (yes, NVidia cards can use Freesync now). An IPS panel is best for colour accuracy and thankfully, any modern IPS panel will have 90-100% sRGB coverage.


And lastly, I think 144hz for gaming is really nice to have.


Here are two IPS Freesync 144hz 1440p monitors with good colour accuracy. They're around $450, but if you wait for Black Friday, they should be on sale.
