Question Looking for a Monitor for the wife.


Feb 23, 2010
Hello everyone. Bought my wife a computer a while back and she needs a new monitor. She wants at least a 27" monitor. She plays games maybe 2-5 hours a week. Doesn't play FPS games. I'm not sure what are the best features to go for with her. Here is a link to her computer specs.

Could someone suggest a good 27" or larger monitor that she may enjoy? Im thinking 1440p, 75 or 144hz, g-sync if we can swing it. Not sure how big of a difference it makes.

1. What Is Your Country Of Origin? USA

2. What do you plan to do with this monitor? (ex. Games, Movie Watching, Photo Editing, etc.) Gaming (probably not FPS games)

3. What resolution and screen size do you want? 1440p, 27" to 32"

4. What refresh rate do you want? (ex. 60 hz , 70 hz.) Im not sure what is required since she isnt playing any FPS games.

5. How much are you looking to spend? $200 to $400

6. Brands Preferred (ex. Samsung, Acer, Asus, AOC, HP, Viewsonic, etc. ) N/A

7. Brands Not Preferred (state reason why) N/A

8. Are You Buying More Than One Monitor? Only 1 for this and a decent cheap monitor that is around 24" but does not need any specific requirements.

9. How Many Displays Can Your GPU Support Maximum? And what GPU and driver version are you using if applicable? GPU - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 8GB, Assume most up to date drivers.

10. What Port Do You Want To Connect To (ex. DVI-D, HDMI, etc). DP or HDMI

11. Is This Monitor A Primary Display Or A Secondary Display? Primary

12. Is This A Secondary Display For A Laptop? No

^+1 to that monitor, got it myself about a month ago and have been very happy with it. No dead pixels, no noticeable IPS glow or backlight bleed. Built in speakers aren't very good, but I'd never expect built in monitor speakers to be great anyway.
How far would your wife typically be sitting from the screen? I sit roughly 2.5 feet from mine (fairly shallow desk), and found that the 32" monitor I had previously was a bit too big, to the point that I replaced it with a 27" and find I like that size better.
