I believe the parental units want to buy a new monitor for my pc for xmas. Normally I would spend about 3 weeks deep diving and watching/reading dozens of in-depth tech reviews etc to narrow in on the best price/performance/future-proofing. I don’t have that kind of time so I’m going to outso… crowdsource!
I’m looking for a monitor 27" @1440p. I plan on using it for mainly gaming with some light use in video-editing. My current pc is a Ryzen 1700x 16g RAM Nvidia 960gtx GPU (I know, its my current bottleneck… Team BrokeGaming). As you can see I’m not going to be pumping huge framerates through this so all things equal, I’d rather spend a few dollars on image quality vs extreme display rates. My budget is in the $200 range (give or take ~50 bucks). Because this will ultimately be passed onto a non-tech relative, bonus points for Amazon or Newegg links. I’ve kind of kept my eye on the korean 27" scene for the past few years, but that market is constantly changing.
Help me L1T, you’re my only hope!
