    So, I've been using the RX 5700 XT for a little while now, but recently got a second monitor.

Anyone with experience with this card who can tell...

    Question Choosing between monitors

    My cat has recently broken my monitor by pushing it, and now I'm searching for a new one. I am trying to choose between the Dell S2419HGF and the Acer XF240Hbmjdp. Which one should I go for?
