    Ok about ready to buy a monitor, got about 250 to spend and I'd like 1080p 144hz 27" what are my options? I've found a few online but was wondering if you guys had any ideas. This will be used for gaming. I'm also interested in curved, Xtra wide, and matte screens, but not as important as refresh also probably way over my budget.

    Your selection is going to be pretty damn slim for only $250. Once you get into features like 120 Hz or more, G-Sync or IPS panels, monitor prices blow up pretty quickly. I'm impressed you were able to find any 27" monitor at 144Hz within that price range. I haven't dug too deeply but every monitor I've seen with those specs tends to start around $300 unless you look at used/refurbished monitors. What did you find?

    For 1080p, don't go above 24". Pixel density will start to become low at that size. Also, what games do you play? If you don't play shooters or racers, adaptive sync might be overkill, as well as 144hz.

    I second this. I own a 1080p 24" (I'm using it right now), and the pixel density looks about right. A screen larger than this would probably start feeling wrong.

    But can you get 144fps?

    Thanks for the advice guys, I ended up buying an open box one of these https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/VG248QE

    I mainly play FPS stuff, but a little bit of everything. Currently playing Crysis 2, and getting 75+ fps with everything maxed. I'm just kind of bugged being forced to choose between screen tearing and vsync(which I find laggy) that's why I wanted such a high refresh rate.

    For what you're looking for, I'd just sacrifice the 3", and go for a 24" monitor with all of those specs since that will actually be in the budget you have. In which case, I'd suggest the ASUS VG248QE. I own one and love it.

    But 27" curved monitors are going to cost you a LOT more than 250 bones with those specs. The cheapest I could find for you with the specs you wanted was this:

    And that costs $580. Go with the 24" Asus I recommended. You'll love it. :yesway:


    Edit: Welp, I didn't see the latest posts, but good to know that my suggestion was the one you went with. :lol:
