Budget? The more recommended ones cost like $700+ and that has G-sync, 144hz and 1440p resolution.
Nothing to see here...keep looking.

I can objectively say as someone who owns both a 55" 4k TV and an Acer 144hz/1440p/4ms monitor, i could give up the TV in the blink of an eye.

You know those guys that run into burning buildings to rescue their pets or loved ones? That would be me with my monitor. I'm sure my family will be fine.

As someone who has gone into burning buildings when others run away this is a funny so you like the monitor that much!! Good to know. Passing it off on the wife who wouldn't use it all will be the tough part.

Better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.

Also if she let you spend that much money on that rig, I can't imagine its a far cry to get an accompanying monitor.

It blows my mind the people that spend top dollar on their build and have a $50 1080 monitor. It's like buying a lambo and driving in Brampton.

True my current monitor isn't bad just looking to upgrade. There would be no issue but my discretionary funds are pulled in so many directions. Plus my two golf trips take priority lol
