Up sizing Monitor

Recommended Posts

Thinking about going up to a 27" monitor. Current monitor is an Asus 24" 144hrz, 1ms, TN panel, 1920x1080p. Looking at a 27" curved 144hrz, 1ms, VA panel, capable of 2560x1440p by MSI (vid card and mono are MSI). I know my 1060 6gb vid card may struggle with the 1440, but I can run at 1080p if needed until I can upgrade my card to a 1070/1080 Ti. Budget rules out Gsync but I haven't had it and am having no tearing problems. Thoughts, suggestions would be welcome.

And no, VR is not in play here. Budget is a consideration, somewhere close to ~400 USD.

Thanks!

My particular setup would probably only allow up to maybe 32-35" but that would be pushing it as I can only get about 36" away. The white PVC has Bern painted gunmetal grey now.20161126_155635.thumb.jpg.0b147820ab58b85bbc159138548c4d36.jpg

Yeah, my lack of cable management needs to be "hidden" 🤣!

So it's my turn for this now.  Figured I'd just kick this one up rather than start yet another thread.

Right now, I have a 19" LCD by Dell, which works fine, but will be handing it off to my parents as theirs just died.  (Fortunately, we keep an old CRT around for just these occasions, so they are not without monitor, just decent monitor.  Who said keeping all this "junk" around wouldn't pay off???)

I have a shelf above my monitor that makes anything much bigger a bit of an issue, but I suppose it could be worked out.  Figuring that it's not an issue, I'm also looking at a physical move in roughly a year.  Not sure where, but it's unlikely that I'll stay where I am now, so I'm thinking the physical space restrictions might not (hopefully won't) remain. 

One of the ones that comes up as most popular is a curved monitor.  Anyone here have one?  Is it better than flat screen? Worse?

What about LED backlit vs LCD?

How about widescreen vs standard screen?


Price range ~$100-150-ish.  Might be able to swing $200.  As with the computer when I built it, I'll probably go high, figuring that a little more spent now will mean a bit of future-proofing.  Future-proofing is key; I'd still be using my old monster 21" CRT if I could have gotten away with it...

I"m not really partial to any particular brand, as I've noticed even the basic Dell monitors seem to be fine.  Am I wrong here?
