Gaming Monitor recommendations up to 350$ (with FreeSync)

Verrierr
 Share

Hello everyone,

The title is pretty self-explanatory I believe. I'm not very experienced in the field, so I'm really not sure what should I focus on when choosing a monitor, and I do realize I'm gonna have to compromise a little at that price point. Curved or flat? TN, VA or IPS? 1080p or 1440p? What I'm sure of however is that since I already have a FreeSync capable video card, I obviously want to take advantage of that. Other than that I'm open to suggestions. Also while I don't feel like I care about my display enough to spend more than 350$, I'm capable of doing so if there's a good enoguh reason, so don't hold back if you think there's a solid option that's a bit higher than that.

I'm currently in the market for CPU to replace my rather ancient one. RX 580 for graphics. I'm not from US, I'm using dollars just so more people can tell what I'm talking about.

 

I play LoL quite a bit.

Then probably just buy a cheap R5 1600/2600 whenever, or an R7 8 core if you want to do streaming/recording.

And buy any of the 1080p 144hz free-sync displays.

if you're cpu is ancient then you're probably still running on DDR3 RAM. Most modern CPU's run on DDR4 now. When you upgrade your cpu, you're upgrading cpu+ram+motherboard

I know that much on my own. I'm looking for something a bit more specific than this.

It doesn't matter which one they're all fine

Only a few will be VA panels, which is better than TN but it's hard to find

1440p is unlikely to be worth it.

I am very much aware of that, thank you for your concern (I suppose what you're getting at is whether my budget can handle it?).

a pointless meme, maybe useful on ultra wides but that's about it

Yes, that is what I was getting at. In terms of monitor suggestions, BenQ or ASUS are pretty good in terms of quality for 144hz, but if you want to go cheaper Acer, Viewsonic, Monoprice, or HP are usually the trend I see.
