Hi! I'm currently looking at AOC 27G2E 27in IPS 144HZ 1MS 1920X1080 Gaming Monitor and MSI Optix G27C4 27in 1920x1080 165Hz 1ms Curved VA Monitor. Probably will buy two for dual monitor setup but my problem is what would be better for gaming? If you have a better suggestion please do tell.

Current PC specs:
CPU: Ryzen 7 7300x
MOBO: TUF Gaming x570 (wifi)
GPU: MSI Armor GTX 1070

Thank you for your opinions and suggestions!

I cannot address anything about gaming. I don't do that!

My two main boxes each have 3 monitors. Things get busy when I'm building a catalog<G>. If your selected graphics card can support two (or 3) monitors, and most do these days, you can plug in just about any monitor you want to. I have one, a 12", I bought at Goodwill, that I use for an always there file manager display. At worst, you might need an adapter...like a DVI to SVGA adapter for an old monitor. I find AMD GPUs work better than nVidia with W10. Might just be my choice of hardware in the box.

yeah i run a gtx 1070 probably this can handle dual monitor set up. but the remaining question is what monitor would you suggest?
