Please suggest a budget monitor option

Go to solution Solved by e22big,

Generally, any flat IPS 27 inch 1440p 144+ hz are as good as the one next to it. If you want to be sure just pick something LG, MSI, Gigabyte or Asus, most of the time they will perform more or less the same, just pick the cheapest or one that fit your asthetic preference. 

 

Just make sure that they are IPS - not TN, not VA (well not the cheapest one anyway.) Not that they were bad but you'll probably do a bit more research on those two to find a good option. But 27 inches 1440p with 144+ hz will perform great as a rule (and not too cheap, not that I know of anyway)

 

HDR is well beyond you at this price range, it's not totally useless but you can at most expect a wilder colour gamut and extra brightness at the low to mid price range. Not worth the money but all of them tends to come with one anyway.

I need a second screen for my work. I have an Acer Predator Helios 500 with Core i9 and GeForce 1070. Primarily, I will be using that screen for my Digital Marketing work (Strategizing, documentation, content creation, etc.). I also game a fair bit.

So what I am looking for is a budget monitor with at least 2K resolution and decent color accuracy which won't suck at gaming. I can compromise the gaming performance.

Additional Info as asked for in the first reply to my request:
1440p. 27 inch seems to be quite common on most options on Amazon. So I'll say 27 inch. 120-144 Hz refresh rate. I didn't mention it before because I thought that would raise the price of a potential candidate. Similarly, I am going to be buying the monitor in India, in Rupees. The prices of electronics don't convert in the exact same ratio as the currency rate because many times products are sold at a higher price in India.
So price-wise I'll say just suggest one or two options that satisfy most of the requirements covered in my messages with main focus on color accuracy, resolution and less so on gaming abilities (response time, refresh rate, etc.). A good deal at the lowest possible price-point.

May be good for HDR content consumption too.

Just to be perfectly clear, 2K is 1440p and not 1080p. If so, what screen size? refresh rate? max budget?

Not an expert, just bored at work. **may edit my posts a few times after posting**

Yes, 1440p is what I meant with 2K. 27 inch seems to be quite common on most options on Amazon. So I'll say 27 inch. 120-144 Hz refresh rate. I didn't mention it before because I thought that would raise the price of a potential candidate. Similarly, I am going to be buying the monitor in India, in Rupees.

If you talk on HDR, they is no more budget but premium price.

Sorry budget need to take out HDR.

But 27 inches 1440p with 144+ hz will perform great as a rule (and not too cheap, not that I know of anyway)

 

HDR is well beyond you at this price range, it's not totally useless but you can at most expect a wilder colour gamut and extra brightness at the low to mid price range. Not worth the money but all of them tends to come with one anyway.

Thank you for a very informative reply. You are the MVP. I finally settled on exactly same parameters myself after hours of research.😀 I have finalized Gigabyte M27Q after much deliberation.
