Hello, I am looking for a new monitor for about £350 to £400 UK BRITISH POUNDS.

I have found https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-VG279Q-Monitor-FreeSync-Certified/dp/B07KP34NMJ just want to know your opinion.

If you have any other suggestions please say. I am looking for at least 144hz since my specs are 3700x and 2070 super, I don't mind 1080p or 1440p and I am not a competitive gamer I am as one calls it a "Graphics Whore" (Not extreme one xd).

Please help since other people are taking their sweet time to respond and I am on a time limit. I also don't play extremely high demanding games but on the odd few times I do.

Thank you and if you want anymore information please message.

I am tired so sorry for any missing information and spelling.
 
I'll look further into details. You are correct in the LG being 32inch. It got high reviews for the price though. https://www.google.com/url?q=https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GB5m_VuvSLM&sa=U&ved=2ahUKEwjP6v7lyoPmAhUEmeAKHZO6CIUQtwIwAHoECAoQAQ&usg=AOvVaw3LbXUFOrppPxJRqzo5g5QX

I watch HWUnboxed on occasion, and monitor reviews are usually in-depth. A 27" would be more suited to 1440P due to pixel density though. Still, tons of options in this price range.

I'd have to check out your other selection as well.
 
I'll have a look. First glance, looks like a solid choice. I'll take a look at freesync details. Any preference to panel type? This looks like IPS, which I prefer myself. This sub forum doesn't get looked at much, so there can be delays. Nice system specs, btw.

Hi thanks, nice specs too.
I don't really mind on what panel it is, I have had a lot IPS panels so I guess I generally just steer more towards them.
I have had a very bad day today, so sorry for those post earlier, they are gone now anyway :).
If you have any recommendations for monitors round about £350 please say + Like I said on the post I wouldn't mind either 1080p or 1440p just mainly want the 144hz but if I can get 1440p I would be 100% happy with it, I am also not a competitive game, just like ma graphics (Do occasionally play competitive games but not a lot I just play games like Hitman 2 etc.).

Thank You. @1LiquidPC
 
ASUS model looks good in reviews. Another strong candidate as well it seems. LG 32GK650F based on VA panel. Both have the same freesync range and work fine with Nvidia GPUs. Just not going to be able to push 144Hz at 1440P in more modern AAA games with 2070 Super. Still, I'd rather have 1440P visual fidelity over 1080P outside of competitive gaming.

Ok. Had a bit of delay. Back now though. I'll check out those specs. Any features required, USB ports, ect?
Nope, USB ports are not needed but are fine if the monitor has them, Thank you for a recommendation to the LG 32GK650F I will look into it. At this stage in time I am needing to buy one in probably couple of days time maybe even tomorrow depending on how things go, so if you would kindly say which one you would go for or a different monitor I will be very pleased. I have been searching for a very long time and there have been a lot of people who have been helpful in narrowing the monitors down however not helping me in which one I should buy. Knowing me whatever monitor I buy, I will probably like it either way.

I have noticed that the monitor is 32in what is okay but is a push for my setup, might be able to make it work, but since it is a 1440p monitor I would assume that is to be expected (32in), I am still learning about monitors and I am actually enjoying it so if you have any helpful tips for the future I would appreciated it.

Thank You. @1LiquidPC

Okay, thanks. I have watched HWUnboxed and it has a very strong review going for it.

The other options I have been recommended are the:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/AOC-C27G1-27-Inch-Curved-Monitor/dp/B07DTGXKK7
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-VG270UPbmiipx-FreeSync-ZeroFrame-Speakers/dp/B07G9J35CQ/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1

I have also have a forum going on Linus Tech Tips: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1125595-looking-for-a-new-monitor-need-help/?tab=comments#comment-13068194 what has a bit more information, however, the purposes of what I want is on this forum.
 
Makes sense to get all the available information from multiple sources. The waters can get muddy on this though when it comes to monitors. Tons of variables, specs, and opinions on which is "best". Usage scenario affected as well, due to needs for color accuracy for some folks.

Yeah, I have been on a couple of forums what have all helped to an extent, just need to go and buy one nw and I am hoping this is the last the forum I will see in a very long time, when you have the time it will be nice to see ur opinion on the monitors I have sent above.
 
Looking at them, I'm still leaning on LG or ASUS at this point. The ACER's internal panel manufacturer is a relatively new to market company for the screens. May be some bugs to work out. The AOC is a curved 24". I've heard that 24s and 27s are on the small side when going curved, and can be a bit distracting. Flat screens make more sense in this size from reviews I've seen. I had a curved 34" non-gaming monitor before. This said, my current ASUS monitor and previous ASUS prior to this treat me very well. Happy with both choices.
