Help me pick a monitor

Hey guys, im looking to buy a monitor (1440p144hz) for my rx 6800XT/5600x build. In my country (the UAE) the choices are a bit limited, and the well reviewed monitors are usually very inflated in price so I disregarded these. My choices are a bit limited to my budget which is around $300-400. I was interested to know if paying more would be worth the investment. Im especially afraid of ghosting, although its gonna be my first 144hz monitor so I dont know how it would feel like, I still dont want the monitor to suffer from this issue from based on what ive heard. 

 

 

 


My options that supplement my budget:

 

The Samsung Odyssey G5: $270 (27 inch). Cheapest option, but apparently its a new monitor and there isnt a lot of recognition coming from this product. Its also the cheaper variant from the g7 counterpart, some people complain of ghosting.

 

Viewsonic VG2719: $317 Apparenty I think this is the only IPS monitor from my list. I come from a 1080p60hz IPS LG monitor and I was pretty amazed by the color reproduction. I never tried VA/WLED monitors so I wouldnt know how they would compare. It is 5ms though so theres a bit of delay.

Samsung LC27JG50Q: $337 .

and its probably similar to this monitor: https://www.samsung.com/sg/monitors/gaming/wqhd-curved-monitor-with-144hz-refresh-rate-27-inch-lc27jg50qqexxs/

 

Lenovo G32QC: $340 https://www.lenovo.com/ae/en/monitors/g32qc-10/

 

Now for the last couple of monitors these are a bit more expensive but they from AOC and Gigabyte, they are all pretty close to each other in price so its difficult to come to a conclusion on which to buy.


AOC Q27G2: $380

GIGABYTE G27Q: $392

AOC CQ27G2: $400

I was wondering if it was worth it to spend more for any of these 3 products . The prices are pretty inflated from the amazon.com counterparts, so I dont think these are a good deal, however I dont want to gimp myself as ive spent a lot on my build, and I want a good monitor for it.

well this is difficult without actually testing the monitor, those '1ms' specifications are usually meaningless, and in my experience if a monitor has 'anti ghosting' features it's pretty safe to say it *will* have ghosting... 

 

Tbh probably best to read reviews but even then...
