I'm in the market for a gaming monitor. I have a 4k LG... Cut Tweaks tuned my rig and said I should replace it, when I asked for recommendations. Lower resolution, high refresh rate 140 to 240hz. Curved seems nice, but is it just a gimick? What should I get?

What do I look for? - No screen tearing, 1440p, accurate color Refresh Rate? - 100hz minimum, preferably 144hz Curved screens, extra wide? - I like curved screens and 18:9, not too wide Brands? - Aorus, Acer, LG Personal thoughts - In my opinion we need more monitors that are G-sync capable, not just "adaptive sync". I'd say at least 60% of gamers have Nvidia cards yet at best 5% of monitors support G-sync in an official capacity. If I were to imagine a perfect monitor it would be 28", 18:9, 1440p, 120hz, 10-bit panel, 1500R, G-sync (officially), 3000:1, 100% srgb, HDR, 500+ nits with a solid build and adjustable angle/height. And under $500 lol

· What do you look for in a gaming monitor? 1440p - 27 inches / 4K - 32 inches, IPS monitor, USB-C compatible. Little response time would be appreciated since new IPS monitors can achieve it. · What refresh rate do you prefer? Anything more than 75hz is acceptable. · Do you prefer curved screens? Extra wide? Doesn't matter TBH. · Are there particular brands you like? BenQ EX2780Q, Dell S2719DGF, Acer H277HU.

These would be my perfect monitors. I really like the vast but couldn't get one. I can't justify spending more than $500 USD on a monitor but would love a lot of high end monitor features. I understand the monitors below might be impossible to reach so some sacrifices may have to be made. Again, this is my perfect monitor other people have different needs. Ultrawide option -
  • IPS
  • At least 120 Hz
  • Gsync
  • 1440p
  • 1-4 ms response time
  • Height adjustment - Very high to very low
  • At or below $500 USD
  • 8 or 10 bit panel
  • 100% srgb
Not ultrawide option -
  • IPS
  • At least 144 Hz
  • Gsync (not just Gsync compatible the full module)
  • 1440p
  • 1 ms response time - Use the lg panels
  • Height, pivot, and rotation adjustment (For rotation rotate at both sides to 90 degrees, but stop at 90) (For Height very high to very low but maintain stability)
  • 10 bit panel
  • HDR
  • 99% adobe rgb
  • 100% srgb
  • At or below $500 USD

For myself -IPS Color and viewing angles are fantastic. I dislike VA black smearing/ghosting and TN's viewing angles. Flat or Curved is fine I have no personal preference. -Full Array Local Dimming since this gives IPS monitors black levels that compete with non-array VA's. Possibly a MiniLED or MicroLED version as it becomes available. -Minimum refresh rate of 144 since anything below is difficult to use even 120 feels slow in comparison after you've adapted to higher. -8 or 10 bit color. I'm currently sitting on a Acer X27 4K/144 Hz 10-bit Full Array Local dimming monitor. After using this I have not been able to use anything else. The color, speed, everything down to the nitty gritty details are produced nearly perfectly.
