Hi I am looking for a new monitor. I have considered many, many options. Here is my part list and build so you know I can run the monitors I am considering. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/4WvV3C (I AM CANADIAN SO CURRENCIES ARE DIFFERENT). So I am looking to spend preferably less than $350 dollars on my monitor. I am also looking into a ps4 so I am highly considering the benq rl2755hm. However is 1080p too low of a resolution for a 27" monitor? Also I have to consider 144hz. Do I want/need it? I play games like league of legends and csgo. And on top of all of that i'd look into a second monitor because I like it for multi-tasking. So would 2 27"s be too much screen? I currently run 2 24" samsungs with 5ms response times and no vesa mounts. I just want to upgrade but I know I don't need some $750 dollar monitor because I am no pro and only in highschool. Just for basic gaming, netflix, streaming, and some editing.
 


yep i agree its one of those questions that doesnt have 1 this is right answer

its what i did before deciding on this 27 1440p monitor

I got a beutiful acer monitor, 1080p, IPS, but at this size, you can notice some pixelation since you sit so close to the screen. I am SUPER happy with this super beutiful display and I do not believe it would be worth the extra cost to up the resolution. 120 HZ will be fine, mine is 60hz and I notice no difference from my old 144hz 24" monitor so do not pay way more for a higher hz. 120 is perfect :)

Not an issue just a personal preference, get picky but it is not even noticable.
