Currently i have a 4k monitor 60Hz, my GPU its good but simply not good enough to handle new games with ultra graphics on a stable 60 FPS, more it goes 40 - 50 fps and thats not playable anymore. im looking for a good monitor with a lower resolution than 4k but higher refresh rate, i found whats listed below.


I want:

2560 x 1440
1ms responsetime
144 or 165 Hz refreshrate
gsync
27 inch ratio 16:9
TN panel

if you have a good monitor in mind leave a comment.
personally i found this 3 good looking devices but i am unable to chose one...

Asus ROG Swift PG278QR
ASUS ROG PG279Q
Asus MG278Q

I have the PG278QR - been a little over 2 years. Has 2 dead pixels - they weren't there from the beginning - at the bottom of the screen in the Windows Taskbar, where I don't notice them. I only see them upon booting up into Windows.
There's also a little bit of burn-in. I left the screen on overnight one too many times(also didn't have screensaver set up), so entirely my fault.

Ignore any monitor's overdrive refresh rate, stick with the default refresh. The monitor can run at the higher refresh rate, but it comes at the cost of a higher margin of error, and thus increases ghosting, or smearing effects.
Overdrive is never worth using because of that.

Thanks for you reply peoples, the dell monitor looks also good and the price is even lower, duo the other response, i will for sure stick with the default refresh rate im not overclocking anything in my build.

However, i am still not sure which monitor is the "best" choice so if theres anyone out to help id gladly read your comment!

There is no best choice.
All you can do is try to find legit reviews on the monitors - beware of the customer product reviews!
The ones that advertise 1ms response time may only be true under specific scenarios, like this one:
Advertises 240hz, and 0.6ms-

Or this LG 27GL850 that claims 1ms response time:

A TN panel is going to be your best bet for 'true 1ms'. IPS and VA have improved, but there not quite there yet - IPS is really close though.
People give TN panels flak for having the worst color reproduction, but ehh, I don't know, I've never used anything else. I plan to try a VA panel for my next monitor pick...

Intresting content you showing us here, i find it really sad how greedy all industrys go for money and adverstise their products just to make cash. i saw a monitor on amazon IPS with 1ms, but i do beleve your comment saying ips doesnt reach that jet.

Also i have never used anything else then TN panel and i think the colors are totaly fine.

Another question i just found is if you can recommend me your favorite manufacturers about monitors.

im having an asus model for about 1-2 years also i used the 4k monitor with 70Hz instead of 60 for a long time and the device is still running as the days i first used it. i would tend to buy asus monitor again but i have no experience about DELL or ACER etc
