Help to choose my new 144hz monitor

Postby RXR_Banjo » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:22 pm

Alright guys, im tired of my asus 60hz IPS (bought 2 years ago) and i want to upgrade to a 144hz.

Main use: work (emails and normal use) + MXS (main game) + some fps when i feel like it !

After reading reviews for 4-5 hours (i know it took me a long time.. lol), here are my 2 final choices:

1- http://www.viewsonic.com/us/xg2401-2.html

2- https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Monitors/MG248Q/

They are about the same price (380- 400$ CAD delivered at my home)

I can't use freesync with the viewsonic because i have a nvidia gtx 1060 card but 2 of my ''facebook'' friends chose the view over the asus after testing both and they do not regret it at all!

What's your opinion?

pc: i5 4590 + gtx 1060 6GB

Depends if you're alright with 1080p. The Acer can get down to the $140 range during black Friday, but if you want it now it's still probably the cheapest option by a decent margin. Both of my Acer's have worked perfect.

Yes i know sean thx ! Its just that i work alot from home and the acer has alot of negative comments regarding colors and ghosting .. it is alot less expensive but im affraid of the quality and it uses PWM ( http://laptopmedia.com/highlights/what- ... r-reviews/ )

That's my main concern about it
