Suggestions Needed! New Monitor purchase being made....

My Sceptre 22" flaked out 5 days after the 2 year extended warranty ended, so I'm looking for a replacement monitor (upgrading hopefully) that will fit in the following dimensions. 28"w x 19" h  ON the stand. Hoping to go above 1080 but not spend more than $300 after shipping& taxes. (didn't really see this coming) No Micro center near me. Newegg and Amazon are my usual friends... lol.

The Sceptre greeted me with a white screen that when I restarted it,showed a blurred faded image of the logo before going all white again.When I hooked up the old monitor,it works fine,so I know it's the sceptre.

What are your system specs or your future upg plans? I think that would determine what is suggested. I have a Dell 144hz 1440p monitor that fits those dimensions, but if you can't "fill it out" it would be a waste to have such specs :)

Hmm. Is color gamut/fidelity important to you? Or is FPS king? There are both at your pricepoint but they aren't all equal. If you had to pick one over the other, which would it be?

Dell S2721DGF - IPS / 144hz / gsync   (not on your list)
VIOTEK GNV27DB - Decent. I never had a viotek monitor before so I don't know about their quality tbh.
Viotek GFI27DBXA - seems better than the DB. has gsync compat
 AOC CQ27G2 - also decent and is gsync compat as well. 


I'm pretty sure I checked and all of these have dp 1.4, 144hz, gsync, and IPS or better panels. I'd go with the one you like best. Honestly, the DBXA and the Dell would be my choices... I just have a thing for dell monitors though haah.

I second dell's  s2721dgf

Or if you can slightly stretch your budget LG 27GL83A-B 27 Amazon special

Samsung LC27JG56QQNXZA (last generation but essentially almost top of the line)

 

Alternatives are dell S2721HGF and LG 27GN650-B 27 Samsung g5 27 inch

 

Lenovo L27q-30 27 Inch QHD Monitor this is great on specs for video, but 75hz only

You should try using your warranty anyway if it was only 5 days or so after it ended. A lot of the time businesses will still cover it if the product died so close to the warranties end date.

It was 1 of the extended warranties from walmart(that's who I got the monitor on-line from) original warranty was 1 year so as soon as the time was up it showed it was no longer valid.

giving the VIOTEK GFI27DBXA 27 Inch 180Hz QHD 1440p 1ms Gaming Monitor, the AOC CQ27G2 27" Super Curved Frameless Gaming Monitor, and the BenQ EL2870U 28 inch 4K Monitor for Gaming serious thought. each are $300.00 or less and have a 3 year manufacturer's warranty so I don't have to worry about buying an extended one.Will fit the dimensions I have open for a monitor so that's a plus.:classic_smile:   Edit: I didn't go with the Lg's because they only had a year warranty on them. :(

That is some bawler specs for monitor. It's with 10 bit with 1.07b colour. 600 nitts and 180 refresh (probably in display port only) and it is gsynch.

 

Not too bad for a brand new monitor

Well,went with the BenQ for the 4k because I don't do a whole lot of gaming where I have to worry about getting killed often by real people. 🙂 and even @ 60Hz it's supposed to have a 1ms response time.(I bought the Dp cable for the best results.)

Is this going to be your first time doing any gaming on a 4K screen? What GPU do you have?

yeah,I did a modest OC and it's been ok in Destiny2,Dying Light,Metro Exodus,and Witcher 3 so far. Just now took it higher and tested using FurMark's 4k preset test, here's a screen shot of results (notice the actual OC can be seen in HWMonitor @ 1980Mhz) Don't know why gpu-z list the OC at 1757Mhz,but no matter WHAT I OC it to that's what show's there after a certain point.🤔lol, it probably doesn't like my card because it's not a super. gonna try some more test.Edit: added screenshots the set oc is 1875 but it boosts to 1980 for some reason, it seems to run stable on it's own between between 1850 & 1920 during the test and hasn't crashed yet. Will see how it does in actual games. 🙂 the big black "benchmark results" shot is from the Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor benchmark in 4k. lol, actually got like 1 higher & 2 fps lower than when I ran it in 1080 just before. I also switched my ram over to the XMP profile which gives me a higher clock there. Might try rerunning some of the test with cpu parts to see if it helped.

Nice. Tell us what you think of 4k gaming once you've gotten a chance to play around with it. 

feels more immersive in 4k with the graphics kinda looking like the older 3d movies(I'm only 30" from the screen so it feels like I'm right on it. 🙂 lol,that may be a bad way to describe the feel,but it's the closest I can think of. I like it,no buggyness so far in anything. 🙂
