Is this the best monitor I can get for the price?
I heard it has some minor flickering issues, but apparently it's not a deal breaker. Anything better for the same price, or is this it?
2 points • theshorteststack
Yea, fortunately I'm in a position where $30 either way isn't a big deal, just want a good value monitor.

I just bought this Acer Nitro 27inch on Amazon. Works great in sRGB. Has Free Sync and 144 Hz and is IPS.

>Do you think it is worth it to buy a 2070 super and play in 1080p?
No, except if you're a super hardcore MLG esports kids who needs 200+fps .
1440p monitor is the better choice for most people. 2060 super can handle 1440p with few settings turn down.
>hp 17xq monitor 27 inches 144hz 2k res
If you're referring to hp 27xq, it's a TN panel. you could get an IPS 1440p/144hz panel for the same price.
Acer Nitro VG271U Pbmiipx 27" is usually 349 (currently OOS)
LG 27GL83A-B is also around 349 (currently OOS)
If any of the 2 are in stocks, you should get it instead. It's in very high demand so it sell out really quick.

I just picked up this 1440p monitor two days ago. It was pretty cheap https://www.amazon.com/Acer-VG271UP-FreeSync-2560x1440-Widescreen/dp/B07NFK9XST

It is but if you are building your first PC I think that’s a waste. Yes, G-Sync is good but it’s not entirely necessary. With V-sync the stutter is unnoticeable. Unless you are funneling $5000+ into your whole setup then G-Sync is a waste. I would recommend something like this thats much cheaper is you want 1440
1 points • LBapq6KC
The old AUO panel sucks really badly without a g-sync module.
If you want a cheap IPS option that is close to your price point then get this.

Keep a look out on local deals and you may be able to get both instead of having to choose one or the other. I had been looking for a few months and found someone selling this monitor brand new in box for $200. Picked it up and brought it home and it’s fantastic.
1 points • FadeThePublic1
would this option be the best? I am reading 1440p 144 hz > 4k 60hz
1 points • OscarTheDeGlasser
There are a few things that are wrong with this list. First the good things:
The cooler is solid, would offer great overclocking for any cpu on the market, but you may not be able to push it as far as lets say a decent 360 mm aio.
The Ram is solid, 32 gb is overkill, but seeing that you are using autocad and solidworks, 32 gb should be fine.
The gpu is solid.
The case is solid.
The psu is solid.
The cpu is solid, especially for gaming, but for tasks like autocad and solid works I would recommend a ryzen 7 3700x. It won't provide as much of a gaming performance, about a 10-15 fps difference in most games, but since you are planning on getting a 1440p 165 hz monitor with the 3080 you wouldn't be able to see any frames above 165.
Now the bad things:
The motherboard, for the 9700k, isn't too good, especially since you want to overclock it. I would recommend something like the msi meg ace z390 or the gigabyte z390 aorus ultra.
The 1 tb ssd just isn't enough storage nowadays, the ssd itself is solid, but I would recommend adding on a seagate barricuda 2 tb hdd.
I also don't recommend getting windows for the full price, since you can find a key off of any site for way cheaper.
Now the monitor seems way overpriced, I have a 1440p 144hz monitor of mine, and trust me, you won't be able to tell the difference of 144hz and 165hz (one I have)

Not actually $450, you can get it for $338 on Amazon without it bwing refurbished.

How does this compare to the Acer Nitro VG271U? Seems like they have very similar stats and pricing (when there is a sale going on for this one). Why would you want the LG over the Acer here?
1 points • MordeoMortem
It's out of stock right now but it is 1440p 144hz and ips for under 400 which is an amazing deal. I bought it myself and I can say it's the best monitor I have ever owned. It says on amazon it will be in stock june

That's a decent 1080p monitor, but unless you need absolutely highest refresh rate for competitive online first person shooters, a 144hz 1440p will be much better, especially for things besides gaming since you'll have more screen real estate and higher pixel density.

oh another thing. at 1440, a 27" screen has a nice DPI instead of spreading those pixels out to 32". I like 27" for 1440, 32" for 4k.
this is the sort of thing you should look for from what you said you're after

I’d recommend this, it’s a bit above at $299, but it’s 144hz and 1440p. So it seems like it’s multipurpose.

The Acer Nitro VG271U Pbmiipx seems to be a pretty good monitor. It's also IPS, which is the best in my opinion. And yeah a 1080 should be fine at 1440p. It might not be able to do 120Hz+ for AAA games on ultra, but you'll get by fine. I'm using a 1080 Ti with ultrawide 1440p, and never have problems.

If I’m willing to give up some ssd storage so it doesn’t make my build more expensive than a VA one, this monitor
1 points • pdsingh08
1 points • GodleyX
Really? The 1070 is too weak? Are you sure? It's not that old yet...
what would you suggest? And ultrawide seems cool, but probably wouldn't do very well with future upgrades or getting a better gpu and triple monitor setup.
The 2070 super gpu seems to be like 500 bucks, but it's g3d mark score is 14800 and my 1070 apparently is 11300. that doesn't seem like such a fantastic improvement.
this monitor also has freesync, high refresh, low response, and is an ips

Check out this one, Acer Nitro VG271U
It's on the higher end of your price range, but it'll give you some extra value with 1440p, VESA Certified HDR400, 1ms, etc.

The physical monitor panel they use. It determines overall picture quality. Basically saying IPS is the best. You'll see it prominently advertised if it has it.

Depends exactly what you want, but a single monitor for $500 is no problem at all. FYI, FreeSync monitors are cheaper than GSync, and most of them are compatible with NVidia GPUs. There's not a huge reason to go with a GSync monitor unless you want to match brand technologies, so the below monitors will all be FreeSync.
TN panels have the best response time, meh contrast and meh colors. They're best for fast paced and twitch FPS games. They're also generally the cheapest monitor. Like the Dell S2719DGF (which frequently goes on sale often). My wife and I both have 2 of these monitors, though mine are older G-Sync versions. They've been great monitors that I would recommend. Though there can be annoying color banding, particularly when displaying dark/nighttime scenes.
IPS Panels have meh response time, decent colors, and decent contrast. They're generally the most well rounded type of monitor, but really good monitors can get pricey. Like the [Acer Nitro VG271U] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NFK9XST/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_i_K.FNEbDW2VVJD) (this is one of the more affordable 1440p/144hz IPS monitors).
VA Panels have good colors, excellent contrast, and meh response times (black -> white -> black in particular is pretty bad). From what I've read, the response times for VA Panels are getting much better than they used to be. Like the MSI Optix MAG272QR.
