Looking for a new (gaming) monitor

Hey guys,

right now I am struggling to make even a close selection of monitors, because I am pretty overwhelmed by the total selection.
Currently I am searching for:

  • 2560 x 1440
  • 27 inch
  • 144 Hz
  • Compatiblity with both AMD and NVidia
  • DisplayPort
  • Suited for Gaming (not utterly trash contrast)
  • Not used for Office, Multimedia or Media Creation Applications
  • A budget of ~400€

Like every monitor comes with it up and downs, I can't see through which points would be important for my use case :/
IPS/TN/VA and stuff like this are still kinda big questions to me

I hope someone can give me a path for how to search one, or give their own recommendations based on previous reasearch/experience

do you think that is better than the Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ?

It does cost 80€ more ^^

HJardware unboxed does really good monitor reviews too


EDIT: Also it's probably not worth going VA or TN in your price range. TN usually has subpar colors and there are just better options out there. VA can be great but they're really at the budget end with AOC or the super high end with Samsung odyssey displays. Your budget should get you a really solid IPS display.

Also fwiw the Dell S2719DGF, Gigabyte FI27Q-P, some Lenovo monitor I can't remember the name of, and LG 27" 1440p 144hz offerings all have the same LG panel so you can price shop those. Keep a look out for the MSI MAG274QRF-QD as well.

Sadly the S2719DGF is sitting at ~450€, and the S2721DGF is sold out, and has waiting times for months.

Is the MSI MAG274QRF-QD even released yet?
The Gigabyte FI27Q-P costs 600€ :c
Do you mean Lenovo Legion? - It costs 450€ aswell
Also had the ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ in mind, but its 460€

That's why the LG 27GL850-B is interesting for me, because there is an offer for 350€

If those are all the prices available to you then the LG is a slam dunk purchase
