Best monitor for Horizon Forbidden West PC?

King Minor

I am wanting to get a good monitor for horizon zero dawn. I want it to be 1440p (ultrawide if possible) and at least 120hz. I want good color accuracy. I won't pretend to know monitor specifics, so I can't really explain it. I prefer mesmerizing experiences to insane speeds.

 

I have been heavily considering this monitor, but it is on the top edge of what I can afford to pay (I would prefer around $200-225). Any monitor recommendations or things I should look for when buying?

Looks OK but it's VA and as someone with two VA monitors, VA smearing is quite apparent on both. It should be better with higher refresh rate monitors (I've only got one 60hz and one 75hz) but i'd defo go for IPS

Ok, about what price range would the decent quality ultrawide monitors fall in?

Those start at around $270 for high refresh rate ones at 3440x1440 Acer AOPEN ‎34HC5CUR Pbmiiphx 34.0" 3440 x 1440 144 Hz Curved Monitor (UM.CW5AA.P02) - PCPartPicker

There is 2560x1080 for $210 that is high refresh rate but at 30 inches I believe the pixel density would be too bad at this size to be viable Sceptre C305B-200UN 30.0" 2560 x 1080 200 Hz Curved Monitor (C305B-200UN) - PCPartPicker

it does have good ratings though and is easier to run than 3440x1440 so make of that what you will

for ultrawide at that price range, it's all similar VA panels so you are paying extra just for the uw in exchange for color/picture quality compared to the original AOC you linked.

Thanks for the recomendation, but it was a bit more expensive when I looked at it. Closer to $245

Thanks, but I think I am going to go with either the AOC monitor or one of the $200 ones recommended above. I don't recognize the brand and can't find reviews for it.
