Hi guys,

I have a 10yr old 1080p Samsung SyncMasterXL2370 23" monitor.

I use my computer for Photoshop and video editing (I'm an artist), and for gaming.

I'm looking to get more real estate for multi tasking when photo editing, and better pixel density when gaming. When I game I almost never play competitive multiplayer - usually single player games (Divinity, witcher, far cry, metro games, RTS games). I would like to be able to play RDR2 and Cyberpunk etc in due course but am holding off on buying a new graphics card until the new AMD and Nvidia cards become more available. So, no need for super high refresh rate, but 144hz would be nice.


I'm looking to upgrade to 1440p, 27" screen (not a curved screen.). Possibly with HDR if available, but it's not absolutely essential.

Happy to play my current games at 1080p for now until I upgrade the graphics card later.

I'm not a total noob but I'm also not totally familiar with how different IPS / VA / TN monitors look in real life.

Can anyone suggest some potentially good monitors that might fit the bill?

Budget around £250 - £400 (approx $300 to $500)


Thanks!


My current pc specs:

intel core i5-8400 cpu
Nvidia GTX 970 GPU
16GB corsair 2400mhz ram

This one seems reasonably priced £250 for a hybrid for gaming:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07YM7X9R8?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1

Claims 100% Adobe sRGB spec, 75hz.


Better option for color accuracy: £300

Dell, 60hz, 99% Adobe sRGB but also HDR 400 (low level of HDR support), and 85% DCI-P3

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079QF5522?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1


Not much around the £400 mark, the high quality image monitors start at 500 and work their way up, rapidly. These typically have built in/included calibration/come pre-calibrated. Also tend to have higher response times, so not ideal for gaming.


If you are after 144hz:
