Question Need Advice for Dual Setup (Purchase + Orientation)

2 Questions:

1. I already have a flat 24" 1080p 144hz monitor, however, I would like to upgrade my setup and get a second (27" 1440p 144+ hz). My budget is ~$260 or less, and I've found a few options. However I'm split between getting a second flat, curved, or ultrawide curved monitor. I'm planning on getting a horizontal mount too. If I went with curved, would the setup be awkward to use? Either way, I'm planning on having the new monitor in front and the second on the side (due to size differences). Thanks.

Also, if anyone has current deals for monitors that I've missed, feel free to comment down below.

2. Looking at these rn:

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-VG271UP-FreeSync-2560x1440-Widescreen/dp/B07NFK9XST/ref=sr_1_15?keywords=1440p+144hz+monitor&qid=1649136000&sr=8-15&th=1 ($100 off, heard good things about it)

https://www.amazon.com/AOC-CQ27G2-Frameless-Adjustable-Guarantee/dp/B0862YHJ56/ (curved va, not the best but pretty budget)

https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-2560x1440-DisplayPort-Adjustable-E275B-QPN168/dp/B08SZH8J2T/ (budget flat ips, spectre's decent but not sure if it's worth it)

Lenovo G27Q (165hz but lenovo?) - found it for $260 on ebay

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-odyssey-g5-27-ips-1ms-qhd-freesync-g-sync-compatible-gaming-monitor-with-hdr-black/6471364.p?skuId=6471364 (g5 is bad but not sure how it compares to those above)

https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Optix-G273QF-Anti-Glare-Adjustment/dp/B08S999YC8 (more expensive, is it worth it?)

Are there any better monitors for 1440p 144hz in that price range?

Thanks again!

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Curious though, what sort of content do you consume? Personally as a main monitor, I'd have either a curved or a flat panel and the secondary panel, I'd have a flat panel but in a portrait mode, since I tend to do a lot of reading. A vertically oriented monitor helps in you reading more content per page, per scroll.

That being said, if you can pick two Acer Nitro's and have them side by side.

Thanks for the reply! I mostly do gaming + studying, although I do a bit of content creation as well. I'd prefer having both horizontal, but is a vertical really that much better? Thanks again!
