Following is my PC Config:
  1. Intel i7-4770
  2. 32GB DDR-3 RAM
  3. Nvidia GTX 1070
  4. Primary & Secondary SSD Drives
  5. Windows 10 Pro
PC Usage:
  • 70% for daily usage ranging from web surfing to watching YouTube, Netflix or Amazon Prime.
  • 30% playing games.
Games I play in the order of most played at top:
  1. Star Citizen
  2. Cities Skylines
  3. Colin McRae Rally series
  4. NFS Series
Future:
  • I'm planning to switch to a Gaming Laptop with minimum x70 series GPU or equivalent around after 2 years down the line.
  • Will not be upgrading my Monitor for a good 5 or 7 years or till it dies.
Cost of the Monitors:
  • Acer Predator X27 bmiphzx (2160p/144Hz) - ₹ 1,35,990.00 (U$1906.67)
  • Acer Nitro XV273K (2160p/144Hz) - ₹ 55,999.00 (U$785.14)
  • Acer Predator XB-271HU (1440p/144Hz) - ₹ 41,999.00 (U$588.85)
With the above am confused in choosing between Acer Nitro XV273K or Acer Predator X27 bmiphzx (2160p).
I also have Acer Predator XB-271HU (1440p) in mind but when I think about future proofing am not inclined towards it.

I would straight away choose Acer Nitro XV273K but with future in mind, am not sure if HDR400 should suffice or should I go for Acer Predator X27 bmiphzx with HDR1000. Also XV273K is G-Sync Compatible but X27 is G-Sync Ultimate.

I was initially looking into 4K Thunderbolt displays, but kind of realized that 120Hz gives a better experience and anyways I feel Thunderbolt 3 is not up to the mark when it comes to gaming.

After weighing some pros and cons I bought the Acer Nitro XV273K.
With Single cable I'm able to get 120Hz and if I need 144Hz I will use the double cable.
Have to use the 150% scaling, but 4K videos looks good. Didn't try HDR.
My GTX 1070 is able to handle the graphics but yet to try all the games listed. VRR is yet to be tested.
