Choosing a monitor

Budget (including currency): 


Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I've started a new build and because of my favorite game I'm second guessing my monitor choice. I'll go into what I've been playing on, what I'm upgrading to, and games I play.


My current set up isn't great, I play on a Asus G751JT laptop, it has a Haswell I7, 970m 4gb, 32gb of G.skill ram and a samsung evo SSD connected to a acer VG240Y. This info isn't really that important


My new rig (which I'm still buying parts for) will be AMD Zen 3 5600x (when in stock I'll buy) RTX 3080 (when in stock I'll buy), Asus Tuf 570 pro wifi MOBO (have), 32 gb of G.Skill Trident Z Neo 16CL (have), WD Black SN850 (have). If this isn't enough info for what my rigs performance will be like then I'll add more info. 


Games I play. The game I play the most and is my favorite is Rust. So I would like my choice to be built around this being the main game I play. Other games in no particular order are Apex, Warzone, Starcraf 2,Diablos, HOTS, Bloodstained. I'm not moving from my GPU choice because I like to stream games like bloodstained to my Shield TV.


My budget is high to mid range. I want a monitor that's at least 27'' but a wide monitor would be nice,1440p would be a must but 4k would be nice, and last I want something that's at least 144hz but more wouldn't hurt. I guess my biggest concern is response time in Rust since it's a game that has lower FPS and I know some monitors response times can very depending on the FPS. This is where I need help. Thanks!

You need to be more specific about your budget and location, availability and pricing vary drastically


Here's an affordable one, rated for 100hz but you can probably overclock it to 120.



i7-7700HQ | GTX 1060 | 16GB DDR4 | 512GB NVMe SSD | 1440p OLED display | Logitech MX Master KZ ZSA

Thanks for your response I live in the United States, I'm looking to spend between 1k and 500 usd.

I was looking at the LG-27GN950 and 850 but I don't know how much of a performance hit if any with the 4k monitor. They both do 144hz and seem to have good response time even at lower fps. Any opinions will help.
