Which is better for 144hz gaming? VA or IPS? 24" or 27"?

Hi 

Guys I have a dell g3 3590 and I can get 100+ fps on majority on the games I play. So to get the most out of my machine I decided to get a monitor. Now I am stuck between a couple of choices and need guidance. I am stuck between Gigabyte G27f ( 144hz, IPS, 27"), Asus Tuf VG249Q1R ( 144hz, upto 165hz, IPS panel, 24")  and MSI optix series( 144hz with curved displays all 27" options).

I would appreciate it if any one could help me decide the best option among all of these considering it will be used a primary display for a laptop setup.😇 

 

TIA

VA and IPS panels are both fine. If you want the best viewing angles, and the (usually) best color accuracy, go ips. Almost all the time if you're looking for something else, such as a curved monitor, a faster response time, this or that, I'd recommend a VA panel usually. 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

In general, IPS is better for gaming because they have better response times than VA (don't just look what the manufacturer says, read up actual reviews, VA might have lower RT for specific transitions, but on average they'll be worse than a comparable IPS screen), but...

  • cheap IPS panels sometimes use 6bit color depth instead of your standard 8bit, so colors look much worse
  • I don't think there are any curved 27" IPS Displays out there, so if you want to go for curved, you'll be limited to VA
  • IPS panels most of the time have a lower peak brightness
  • I'm using 2 curved VA screens right now and to me there is no visible ghosting on either of them, unless you're a competitive E-Sports gamer, a VA will typically be just fine
     

As for 24" vs. 27", it depends on the resolution you want to game at. 24" usually only come at 1080p, while 27" are available in both 1080p and 1440p. At 1080p, a 27" may look a bit pixelated unless you're sitting far away from the screen. But 1440p will put a lot more stress on your GPU and you might not get the same 100+ fps.

IPS can be slow and not be so great if a worse IPS panel is used.

VA has a lot more contrast like 3000:1 than 1000:1 from IPS.

Good IPS panels should however be a lot better to use if for gaming, were if the panel has a good overdrive setting, keeping good picture at higher HZ and higher or lower FPS (some only "works" at the highest or the lower FPS scale to the rated HZ). Also that VA can have smearing due to their panel type, which can be very noticable. IPS have their own issues like light bleed through the screen and lower brightness unless you get a more expensive monitor.

 

Soon there will be more MiniLED monitors that I think would often under the IPS? Not too sure, and OLED, which isn't exactly what I would want for a monitor.
