Need a second monitor recommendation

As the title says, I need a second monitor recommendation, mainly used for discord/google, so preferably 60/100 hz and curved. My main monitor is Msi Optix G24C4 144Hz

BUDGET: 250 USD

You should always try to match your secondary displays with your main.

 

It can be both off-putting and even nauseating to constantly move between different displays with varying color profiles, panel types, and refresh rates. 

 

Not to mention the strain it'd be putting on your eyes.

 

I'd like to suggest getting a second G24C4, but that was a questionable purchase to begin with.

Your budget listed above for the secondary display is $250 USD, the G24C4 you already have costs exactly that. If you can afford it, the matching display makes sense. 🙂

Because the AOC 24G2 exists, and is the better option for that pricepoint/specs.

Well yes macthing display makes sense but i dont want to have 2 144hz monitors bc the second one will be waste bc i will be using it only for discord etc. plus aoc isnt curved so it kinda dont fit, but i agree it is good
