This thicc girl is proud of her bezels and flaunts them around however if you could spare another $50, her cuter sister has a higher refresh rate and smaller bezels. I am sorry you had to read that, thought I'd try to make you laugh however I made cringe.

I have been wanting multiple monitors for awhile. I don't know why I put it off so long. I bought a gaming PC for 2 main reasons. Blu-rays and games. I can now play a game on 1 monitor while watching my blu-rays on the other. It's SO nice. When the monitors arrived, ordered from Amazon, I freaked out because it said free-sync instead of g-sync. I checked the model number with my order, and it was right. I realized the monitor is listed as g-sync compatible. Oh well. It works.

As for the upgrade to 144 Hz, you guys are right. It is so much smoother. I set 1 monitor to 144 Hz and left the other to 60 Hz to compare. Even moving around the mouse cursor is so different. I feel like my GTX 1070 wasn't able to show it's true potential until now. I have them hooked up via the display port cables that came with the monitors.

By the way, if any of you upgrade to a better monitor and wonder why it's not showing more than 60 Hz, this post helped me. I never want to go back to just 1 monitor or just 60 Hz again.

Don’t get that one. It’s the lowest end 144Hz monitor and at $196 it’s too expensive relative to other 144Hz which are much better. $15 more but way, way better

Check Acer XF250Q or Acer XFA240 or AOC G2590FX , all are on the Nvidia approved list for Gsync compatible and would be my top picks for $200-225 gaming monitor.

u/Carstellz · 4 pointsr/blackdesertonline

I would say that these 3 monitors are some of the best, if not the best that you could buy for 1080P gaming @144hz. I have owned all 3, and even used them back when I still had a GTX 1080 like you have. If you are on a budget, I would go with the Acer. If you have the money to spend and want an overall better monitor, then the Asus is the way to go. Not really a reason to buy the Zowie anymore IMO, for the price you might as well just spend a bit more and get the Asus (when I bought my Zowie, that current Asus model was not available). And trust me, you will not have a great overall experience playing 1440P BDO with a GTX 1080. Maybe if you have a 9th gen CPU it could be a little better. I have a GTX 2080 TI and I7 7700k and I can't pull 144fps/144hz in many places, especially not in NW/anything more than smallscale PVP.

u/julfdorf · 4 pointsr/buildapc

You want a FreeSync monitor for an RX 580, G-SYNC is only compatible with Nvidia graphic cards. FreeSync on the other hand are fully compatible with AMD, and also has limited compatibility with Nvidia.

Since you mentioned that the PC is mainly for competitive Fortnite in another post I highly recommend a TN monitor such as: Acer XFA240.

Reasons being: It's in your budget, I don't think 144hz vs 165hz will matter (I personally don't notice a significant difference), TN have faster "pixel response time" than other panel types (which matters a lot for competitive gaming), and you won't really notice any major difference between 144hz TN monitors due to almost all of them using the same panel, just different brands basically and the only difference are the technology "around it". And I'd say Acer, ViewSonic and AOC are the best when it comes to that.

Some other alternatives are the [ViewSonic XG2402] (https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-XG2402-FreeSync-Advanced-Ergonomics/dp/B075D1B4SV) and [ViewSonic XG240R] (https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-XG240R-FreeSync-Advanced-Ergonomics/dp/B07L53SFGG), if you want something more fancy with USB ports, but these are slightly more expensive. If you were thinking about the BenQ Zowie XL2411P, I'd say all of these are a much better choice.

u/HunterxKiller21 · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

How low you want? $155? $180? Now granted these are a smaller side of monitors much like my original post but I personally don't care about the size of the monitor. My desk isn't very large so it's not too far from my face so bigger is actually more of a pain.

u/WaZyJ · 4 pointsr/buildapc

I currently have the Acer XFA240, its works great for me, has 1ms Response Time, a somewhat small stand so it doesn't get in the way and has adjustable height and tilt/swivel. I would definitely recommend.

Edit: It also came with displayport cable which is pretty cool

u/ErnthaGod · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace


The bezel isn’t exactly thin but considering your price point this is a pretty good monitor.

u/RexlanVonSquish · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I personally would go for either the AOC 2460PF or the Acer XFA240

I have the predecessor to the Acer XFA240 (Mine is the XF240H) and it hasn't let me down yet after a year's worth of hard work. It did take a lot of color adjusting out-of-the-box to make it look passable, but such is the downfall of TN panels.

Also, check out ProductChart.com if your budget is wider than $200. You can filter monitors based on size, resolution, refresh rate, included features, and so on. It's nice, and it helped me ultimately decide on the Acer monitor I mentioned.

u/lollluna · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would tack on a regular hard drive (1TB would do), they're super cheap and will give you some needed extra storage space. 500GB will fill up quick.

With a solid CPU and GPU you'll want a better monitor for sure. Acer makes a very affordable but solid monitor that is freesync and gsync capable that I'll post the link for below.

u/sitefall · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I don't know about the AOC, but I have the 1440p version of the Acer (every other spec the same, even same case/bezel) and two KN242HYL 60hz IPS panels (also same case/bezel) and they are fantastic.

Worth noting that CamelCamelCamel tracks third party sales of that Acer as being 195ish and sold from amazon for a few bucks less. This isn't much of a deal so much as it's normal price. link here

Personally I think monitors are one thing that is pretty safe to buy used. They are pretty stationary, people don't modify them, they have a very long life expectancy. If you're okay with that try checking ebay for it or make a post on /r/hardwareswap . Craigslist and facebook marketplace also work, these are very common models.

If you're specifically looking for new, check /r/buildapcsales - If you filter for posts tagged "monitor" and sort it by top for the past month, you will find what sort of deals are possible. Usually deals repeat themselves I find, just be patient.

u/XmentalX · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Here is a cheaper option to B) as well https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYHZ6R6

I use this plus the old all to common GN246HL which is the cause of many upgrade headaches. Luckily I was able to go with an RTX 2070 SC Black which still has a DVI port so I have dual 144hz but OP i feel your pain I used to have 2 GN246HLs (got the 2nd for a steal) finding a reliable way to get 144hz with a dvi monitor is not worth the effort which is why I finally dropped money on the monitor I linked above.

u/friedmpa · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

I think the monitor is fine, ips panels are great. If you really wanted a new one get something with a faster refresh rate, just makes everything better:

Just chiming in here, I just barely upgraded my 60hz old thing to this 144hz. It is a good one if you want low cost and don't care about still just being 1080p. I'm loving it and there are lots of good reviews out there on it.

u/lydraffekorah · 2 pointsr/PcMasterRaceBuilds

I would definitely recommend an SSD right off the bat. Faster loading times and faster write speeds.

Also, this monitor is currently at $209 but the price fluctuates and you can usually get it for juuust under 200

u/NovaSolaris · 2 pointsr/Gamingcirclejerk

That is just not true. I built a computer for a friend that was 1K and can run any eSports game at 100+ fps. You don't even need a powerful PC to do that.

An RX 570, a $150 card can even run Metro Exodus on High settings at 60fps average so long as you generally don't bottle neck it with a weak CPU. All you need to accomplish that is an i5 or an R5. Unless I missed something, I only saw it under 60fps in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Throw in a cheap 1080p 144Hz monitor and you already have a better experience that every single console gamer.

You don't know what you're talking about and just contributing to this myth that you need to spend a ton of money to have a good experience, which isn't the case at all.

Don't believe me?

So when it comes to buying a mouse it is really all about your play style and feel. If you like to palm the mouse meaning that your whole hand is round the mouse a good mouse is the Razer Deathadder If you like the claw grip using mostly only your finger tips than I would recommend the Logitech G Pro I personally now use this mouse but used the Deathadder for a number of years. Both mice have over a 12,000 dpi setting once you install the software you can adjust as you please, but tbh most likely you will play between 200-900 dpi and 1.2-3.2 sensitivity in game. All of this is preference and you will figure out over a long period of time playing key board again is all preference it depends if you like silent of mechanical Razer Cynosa is a very nice silent one in your price range, for mechanical I have owned a lot of them and tbh the one I use is a off brand one I bought from my local Walmart and and I like it more than any high dollar ones I have owned so you might want to look there. Also you will need a nice mouse pad I have and will probably continue to use for years the razer goliaths speed it is cloth and I like it, there are also hard pads many people I know use and enjoy the Corsait MM8800 but again this is all up to preference. Last thing if you are trying to play at any high lvl of competition you might want to look into a 144hz monitor if your computer can run what ever game you are playing over about 200fps I have Acer 24inch 144hz the price is really good and makes a huge difference. well that is about all I can think about I wish you the best of luck and above all just have fun.


u/RecklessWiener · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I don't personally own this monitor, but it fits your criteria.



u/David367th · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Before anything else, you should look at monitors with the idea what you want your Resolution and Refresh rate. Generally the higher one is, the lower the other. You also have to worry about response time, but thats pretty simple: the lower the better, go for 1-4ms.

  1. This is the kind of thing that depends on resolution and frame rate. You're probably best with either 1080p@144 or 2560p@60 or so. If you're thinking about the different gsync/freesync, a 1070 will utilize gsync.

  2. I would consider companies like Acer, Asus, Benq, all make great monitors. With the Acer XFA240 being something to look at.

The eGPU's TB3 port is supposed to be for the computer to feed data to the eGPU (I assume there is only one TB3 port on the eGPU).

An HDMI cable is fine for connecting the eGPU to 60 Hz or 120 Hz displays.

But if you have a 144 Hz display (which I totally recommend, it's life changing) you need to use a Display Port cable (not to be confused with Apple's mini display port) otherwise the display will bottleneck at 120 Hz. Or at least that's what I saw with my setup. You can verify your refresh rate with this website.

My setup is:

u/IamRightHanded · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Did some research and googling yesterday and came across this monitor as maybe the best budget option.

It's still a TN panel, which matches the Predator. It's 1080p, 144Hz refresh, and has FreeSync rather than G -- unfortunate, but yeah I'd be using this primarily for web browsing in between game loads on the Predator anyways. Just from what I'm reading, this seems like the best bet.

u/911riley1 · 2 pointsr/Monitors


You won't be able to take advantage of the freesync since you have a 1070ti, but you should have very little screen tearing overall since that card is more than enough to push 144fps at 1080p.

u/Th3_Ch41rm4k3r · 2 pointsr/Rainbow6

You will generally get the best price vs performance if you build your own machine.


At the $1000 price point you will need to ask yourself: do I want to try to shoot for 144hz performance or will I be happy at 60fps?


My advice would be to get a cheap 144hz monitor and try to squeeze performance out of your machine. Here's a quick build: https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/t832FT/great-amd-gaming-build


If you just want to get the most Siege performance for the money you can drop to 8gb of RAM and use the extra money to get a 144hz monitor like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1542135907&sr=1-3&keywords=144hz+monitor


You will really get the most out of your investment in playing on PC if you shoot for 144 fps level performance. A 2600 with a 1070 will get you there. If you want to add a better cooler you can get good over clocking on your 2600 and video card (I would go with a decent 1070 with at least two fans). It is worth having an SSD for your OS and main games.

u/Analbub · 2 pointsr/Monitors

The 1060 max-q isn't powerful enough for gaming at 1440p on any new or demanding game, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you plan on upgrading in the future or plan on building a desktop at some point that is more powerful. Also if you primarily game I would recommend 144hz over 1440p. I would stick with either 1080p 60 hz or 1080p 144hz, but the 1060 probably won't be able to fully use that 144hz on most games. I have the msi gs65, which has 1060 max-q as well, and it has a 1080p 144hz panel in it, and I get 100 fps and above on less demanding games, but any AAA or graphically intensive game struggles to get above 60. My final thoughts before recommendations would be an ips or va panel over a tn, because the response time downgrade is (imo) worth it for the amazing color reproduction. Also at 144hz i find that g-sync and freesync are not that useful and find the additional price not worth it. If you are only gaming and doing competitive games then TN is fine though. Anyway, here are my recommendations


If you aren't into competitive games and want good colors for watching videos and/or photo editing:

1080p 60hz: Dell U2414H

1080p 144hz: Acer ED273


If you are into competitive gaming and want the fastest response time here are a few options:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/?tag=pcpapi-20. I recommend getting a 144hz monitor, they are really that much better than 60hz and the 2070 will be able to play all games at 144fps. If that's too much, then get this 75hz monitor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CVL2D2S/?tag=pcpapi-20.

>144Hz G-sync compatible

Do you mean G-Sync or Freesync that is G-Sync compatible? There is a minor difference. If you have an Nvidia GPU, G-Sync will perform more consistently than a freesync monitor.

Have you seen any of these? They should be exactly what you listed in your requirements:

u/DeathStriker5168 · 2 pointsr/RateMyPC

Well here's a 144hz monitor for $200. it's nice I use it and I even stopped using my 4k monitor

u/Christopher_Bohling · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I would consider the Acer XFA240. It's a 144Hz Freesync monitor that has been validated by Nvidia as G-sync compatible. So that means that it will work out of the box with either Nvidia or AMD graphics cards. Getting something that will work with both is a good idea because it gives your monitor greater flexibility - you're not restricted to just one GPU manufacturer in the future.

This list is a good guide to monitors that Nvidia has validated as compatible. Bear in mind that true G-sync monitors (the ones labeled just G-sync) will only allow variable refresh rate with Nvidia GPUs (I mean, the monitor will still work, you just won't get VRR), while the "G-sync compatible" ones are Freesync so they will work with Nvidia or AMD.

I don't think they make any 1440Hz monitors yet...

But in all seriousness, there's a lot of options in your price range available on Amazon like this and this and I don't know how far you are from CA's MicroCenter but they also have several options for $250 or lower--just in case you want to go the brand new route.

27" 144Hz monitors will be a little harder to come by for $250 and lower but you may find some decent used options on here.

u/ExodusMe · 1 pointr/buildapc

you are in luck because this is on sale right now.



I have the ViewSonic XG2401. The acer above is G-Sync certified compatible.

In any case you want to get a 1080p 144hz (or higher) g-sync compatible monitor.

Your GPU should be able to push higher than 144 frames in most games on low settings, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to go for a higher hz monitor if you don't mind spending more.

u/Cllydoscope · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Now I'm looking at this one


I just typed 1080p 144hz 1ms ips for my search. This one in particular appears to be a TN panel though. It's only $169, which sounds decent. only 57% of reviews are 5-star, so that is a bit concerning. I wasn't able to find the monitors you listed at those prices currently.

If you're still looking for a monitor I've been using this monitor for 2+ years and it's good. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hey brother I would advice to get this monitor https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Same thing what youre going to get but cheaper honestly that will save you some money i currently use this monitor and have no complaints although i wish i would have went with a 1440P monitor but i cheaped out a lot, with my pc including watercooling pc fans and especially an ugly case. so take my advice especially with the case make your pc look good trust me you will regret it if you dont. you can get a nice cheap nzxt case for the same price or maybe 10 dollars more than what you're getting

u/Imor77 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Bet. I was looking into that monitor or the Acer XFA240 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1), but yeah...you are right that adapter is way too expensive.

u/TalesOfMaxwell · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Literally just bought another Acer monitor similar to this a few hours ago on Amazon.


I can't find any major downside, besides no swivel, to cancelling the Amazon one and purchasing this instead. I'll end up saving about $50 with tax.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks, yeah here's the two I'm thinking about currently:

And to me idk if I'll really notice 144hz, and I'll be using it a lot for games capped at 60 but I'll probably go for it anyway

Hey PC master race, I'm ready to finish my ascension completely with a 144hz monitor. I've had my eye set on this monitor, but I don't have an AMD graphics card. So I'm wondering if I should bite the bullet on this one, or wait one more week for black friday/cybermonday - the preview deals for 144hz have been in the same price range as this from what I've seen so far. I'm also completely open to any recommendations of monitors to keep an eye out on, thanks!

I have an MSI 1050 Ti, do i need to worry about getting a Gsync 144 hz monitor or am i fine with Acer XFA240, id ont have much knowledge with monitors and dont know what AMD Freesync and Gsync except for what i think is that if you have and AMD card, the freesync is better for you and an Nvidia is better with Gsync

u/Jakenator1296 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I currently have the AOC G2460PF, which is $195 on Amazon. The BenQ monitor doesn't include Freesync, but I'm going to go ahead and assume you don't have an AMD graphics card, so that won't really matter for you. That ViewSonic monitor is the 2017 model, but the 2018 model is $250, and so is the BenQ monitor.

The Acer XFA240 is $15 more than the AOC monitor and has the same style stand.

The Acer GN246HL is the same price as the AOC monitor, but only has tilt capabilities due to a different style stand.

I've had my AOC monitor for a year and a half now, and I haven't had any significant issues with it, and it performs well for a cheap monitor. Also, in my opinion, it looks much better than the 2nd Acer monitor.

The only downside of the AOC monitor is that it's color accuracy is pretty poor, but I don't think any of the 144Hz monitors near $200 will have good colors. If that's important to you, then you might want to dish out a bit more for a better panel.

u/shnurr214 · 1 pointr/buildapc

i really want to buy a 144hz monitor but im not really aware of all the specifics i need to look out for to get the best bang for my buck.

i was originally referred to this one here https://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-1920x1080-144Hz-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0?ref_=nav_ya_signin&_encoding=UTF8&

but i saw some other options that are decently cheaper https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=dp_cerb_3#customerReviews

can anyone help me sort through the bullshit and get a good deal on a solid 144 hz monitor without spending a zillion dollars.

id like to keep it under $300 as my budget if possible. cheaper is always better

u/Baby_Kangaroos · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ryzen 5 or Rzyen 7 (2nd or 1st generation) would be a good upgrade.

I would skip the 970 and get the 1060. Also be aware that there are 3gb and 6gb 1060 models with the 6gb models obviously being better.

I think Acer has a 144Hz 1080p monitor on Amazon for like $200: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6?tag=monitorfan-20

In that spec/price range, the Acer XFA240 should be better.

It's Freesync/Gsync compatible, and has low-framerate compensation. As well as a bit cheaper, and still has a fully adjustable stand.

If you wanted to go 1440p or up the panel quality to VA/IPS, you'd need to spend a lot more.

u/coldtires · 1 pointr/xboxone

Yes monitor will work with Xbox, 60Hz output is standard, 75Hz is only possible with PC.

The Freesync range on that Acer is 48-75Hz but on Xbox will be limited to 48-60Hz. This means only 60fps games that dip into 50fps will benefit from Freesync.

if you want something with a wider range you need something like the Acer XFA240 which has a Freesync range of 48-120Hz over HDMI with LFC (low frame rate compensation which triples/doubles frames putting them into Freesync range) this means for Xbox it has an effective range of 20-60Hz or 20-120hz so a lot more games can be covered by that.

Though a lot of Xbox One 30fps games use a feature called adaptive vsync which does not work with Freesync so not all 30fps titles will benefit.

Also be aware Xbox does not work with all 120hz output modes, it varies among displays how 120hz is done, mostly minor benefits from using 120Hz.

u/sideflanker · 1 pointr/buildapc

I hope you remembered to factor in tax. The XG2402 was, for example, $229 to Maryland after taxes.


$180 XFA240 is a lower cost alternative to the XG2402

You won't need an aftermarket CPU cooler at all with Ryzen products.

Your build only needs 550W or less. If you can find a 550W power supply for cheaper, go for that instead.

Your motherboard is unnecessarily strong. It'll overclock well but at this budget you might want to spend your budget elsewhere. Just pickup a good B450 board like the Msi Tomahawk.

Windows can be installed and used for free, you just won't be able to change your background. All you'll need is a flash drive and a computer to load the install onto the flash drive.


With the extra budget, you can pick up a GTX 1660 TI or maybe even reach for a RTX 2060.

I'd go with used or refurbished on that budget, try Offer Up, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslits or Ebay. If you can extend you budget a lil bit, check out the Acer XFA240 (Has G-Sync for your GTX card), Sceptre C248B-144R or the 27" Dell Gaming LED-Lit Monitor 27" Black (D2719HGF)

u/LemonDesu · 1 pointr/USF

Hey there, im not really sure about the motherboard, but i looked at your parts list and i would definitely recommend a different monitor. With spending around 200$ you should look for a 144hz monitor that supports freesync, since nvidia graphics cards can now be enabled with freesync monitors. Id recommend something like this which is popular for around that price https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_DJeRDbD6B9AFT

u/bach37strad · 1 pointr/buildapc

Looks good. I just finished migrating my node 202 build to an NZXT H200 for better Temps. One thing I noticed was using an sfx power supply even in a large itx case that could fit a full sized psu, was it gave me lots of extra room for cable management. I was using extensions though so I needed the extra space.

As far as your monitor goes, If you're set on that price point, personally I'd recommend going getting a higher refresh rate 1080p panel.

u/HagPuppy89 · 1 pointr/buildapc
Made some adjustments to maximize performance. Changed RAM to different brand with faster speed (Ryzen CPUs thrive on fast RAM), changed SSD to one that performs better, has longer longevity, and is less expensive, added 2TB HDD, switched GPU to 5700 XT which performs better than the 2070 Super at a lower cost (Unless you just HAVE to have ray tracing this is the better choice), Swapped case to less expensive one with 4 fans and still has RGB, upped PSU to 650w as the GPU suggests having at least this much power, plus it’s gold certified.

All in all, this comes in just lower than what you priced.

Edit: great monitor for price would be the Acer XFA240 @ $180 - 1080p HD monitor capable of 144hz. 144 FPS will feel like a mega upgrade over traditional 60 FPS gaming. And this rig will get you there.

this one offers some more ergonomic design at almost the same price, idk about you but i'm a tall person and i normally use the height adjustment on PC displays. personally i just went to a 144hz ViewSonic and 144hz is where it's at.

u/sir_froggy · 1 pointr/buildapc

FreeSync doesn’t affect Nvidia cards, it just doesn’t work with them. You’ll get the same framerates on a FreeSync monitor as with no sync monitor, you just can’t enable the FreeSync feature for use, the monitor will just work as a regular monitor. G-Sync is a nice feature but it usually adds $50-100 to the price tag so be cautious. Tearing can occur regardless of monitor depending on your framerates and the game, but with 144hz you should be relatively fine unless you’re playing at 160+ FPS.

That ASUS is overpriced for a TN monitor, if you don’t mind TN go for the Acer XFA240 which does have FS. But with your 1070Ti you may want to consider 1440p, especially since you were considering a $350 ASUS, you can get the Dell S2417DG which isn’t much more, has G-Sync and is the best value 1440p 144hz on the market currently. A 1070Ti will play most games in 1440p admirably and it will be great for a long time. I know neither is 27” but you’re gonna have to compromise somewhere, and 24” is still a great size.

u/Mongothegreat · 1 pointr/buildapc


I have this monitor and while I have an Nvidia card and can't take advantage of the freesync everything else is great. It requires some color calibration out of the box but for the money you are getting an amazing deal.

If you're willing to spend around $200 this Acer 1080p 144hz monitor seems really good for the price. Plus it's G-Sync Compatible. I have an Asus VG248QE for $200, but for some reason I could only find it for $260 which isn't worth it in my opinion.

Just a good heads up for you, you can usually find good monitors on sale that are 144hz. You don’t need to worry about freesync or gsync anymore. I have an Nvidia card with 2 freesync monitors and they are beautiful. I would scour this forum and also check out slickdeals.

Thanks for the list! I believe I actually found a really nice monitor. It's the Acer XFA240, 144hz 1080p and it is G-sync compatible with the latest update since I own a GTX 1080Ti. I think it's perfect for me considering my main display is G-sync as well. The only con is that it is a TN panel but I don't really mind as my main monitor is also TB.

I want to try that because I have sensitive eyes. Which one of these would you recommend regardless of the price difference and why?

How does this monitor look?

u/TeebsTibo · 1 pointr/streaming

Acer XFA240 bmjdpr 24" Gaming G-SYNC Compatible Monitor 1920 x 1080, 144hz Refresh Rate, 1ms Response Time with Height, Pivot, Swivel & Tilt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Mdj8CbM52R58Z

This is one of the ones that is freesync compatible as well. So if you’ve got a nvidia card then you’re solid.

Here is a reputable one for 180

after using 144hz, going back to 60 for so much as web browsing can look weird to me when moving the mouse around the screen

u/Knobbytires69 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Apologizes, I suggested this monitor for the long term use under the assumption you will upgrade the gpu to something more powerful. I reread your post and did some more research


I think the LG is good budget screen if you want an IPS display with good color accuracy compared to TN panels.


Here's a similarly priced LG Ultrawide monitor with IPS.




I know you said you don't feel like getting a 144hz monitor right now, at the same price range you can get one. It comes with 2 very crappy speakers, but they're better than no speakers.


u/Gup__ · 1 pointr/buildapc

Well I was hoping to be able to reuse everything except for my CPU, motherboard, and RAM. My case, graphics card, hard drives, and CPU cooler should still be good to go.. and I was thinking of getting this monitor. More of a 24" guy. Ideally I'd like to have two of them.

u/Deltasidearm · 1 pointr/buildapc

This monitor is probably the best value I've seen at $310 USD. It's 27", 1440p, 144 Hz, 4 ms response time, VA panel, 1800R curve. I assumed you were looking for a 1440p monitor because you are getting a 1080Ti. If you want a 1080p monitor, then you can find those much cheaper (~$200 USD, like this one).


Keep an eye on r/buildapcsales for good deals.

u/Mr_Lotus · 1 pointr/blackfriday


Much better than samsung's defective monitors, it's actually the one I own and it's on sale for $170. Don't regret it one bit even though I bought it at full price months ago.

u/KobaltKaria · 1 pointr/Dell

Check this out... Well under you budget and enough for gaming at 1080p


u/BrkenSmilez · 1 pointr/blackfriday

This (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_YjB9BbR1QG0BP) is the one I use, love it so far. It’s $209 though, $9 above budget :P

Monitor model number just in case the Link doesn’t work: Acer XFA240 on Amazon Us

u/bfinleyui · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm trying to make a decision on a budget 144hz panel, and I'm paralyzed by indecision... Budget is, ideally, $200 or under. Needs to be VESA-mountable.

  • ViewSonic-XG2401 - $200 after coupon, the USB ports are a nice touch, comes with a Displayport cable
  • Acer GN246HL - $191 - More reviews, never had an Acer Monitor before...
  • Acer XFA240 - Looks like a different model from acer, but maybe a little nicer? I don't know.

    Never bought a gaming monitor, for looking for some advice, I want to get this thing ordered ASAP....

    I'm only gaming in 1080p, obv, coming from 60hz on my 55inch tv, and have a big 25-hour charity stream and didn't want to stare at that all day. I have a 1070ti, but can't afford a g-sync.

u/rubberduck774 · 1 pointr/buildapc

What would be your refresh rate preference? If it’s 144hz I’d recommend looking at used since they can get pricey, and so far I’ve seen no 144hz panels for around £100. I did see some 75hz though. Your Vega 56 needs something that can utilize it more. If you can, I’d open your budget up a little more to be able to afford a 144hz monitor. The Acer XFA240 is a good one, also has Freesync. Goes for ~£150.

Here’s the link to it

u/SoLaR_27 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Are you in the US? This one has good reviews for $200 and has Freesync (G-Sync compatible). This Sceptre monitor also has good reviews for $180, is 144Hz, and is even curved, but some customers have said that they come with a few dead pixels. Amazon's return policy is pretty good, so you might want to try your luck. Here are a few others that you might also want to consider: Dell D2719HGF,Asus VG278Q, AOC G2590FX, and Acer ED273.


EDIT: These are all 1080p.

u/danbogi · 1 pointr/buildapc

u/AntiK00l · 1 pointr/buildapc

1080p would do you fine, just make sure it's 144hz. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3202580/benefits-144-monitor.html If you really need it then atleast make it (one) widescreen (they're expensive). I would suggest something from LG or Samsung. Like: If not, then at least 2-3 of this: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1536714982&sr=8-2&keywords=acer+144hz would do you the best, and with that budget i'd go with a 1070-1080 to run those monitors. I use one and a cheaper "Spectre Monitor" (brand)

u/cyberintel13 · 1 pointr/buildapc

To be honest a GTX 1060 is gonna struggle to do 1440p. I didn't realize you had a 1060 at first. I would go with a well rated 1080p G-Sync compatible 144hz like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6

u/KomonKun · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

u/TheJackedWhale · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have this one and couldn't be happier with it. Fantastic deal for the price. Especially a good idea if you plan on getting a radeon card in the future because of the freesync capabilities it has!

I have this monitor and it’s everything I asked for and for only $210 right now
Not to mention if you have an AMD card then you can take advantage of the free sync

u/Ultima257 · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Thank you for the additional input, I’ll take the advice on the cooler and monitor!

I’ve looked at these two monitors on amazon. Would you tell me what you think of them? The lower priced Acer advertises AMD freesync to eliminate screen tearing. Would that be better than using regular in game VSync?

The Asus boasts thing such as overlays or timers, which I am not interested in.

u/singu_fnstr8 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm trying to choose a new monitor for my setup. I wanna upgrade to an entry 144hz (I play at 1080p).

Narrowed down my list to these 3:



Acer XFA240

Which one should I choose? I run on gtx 970(freesync wont matter here), mostly play dota and maybe some AAA games on high. I'll spend up to $250 if you guys have other ideas (US based)

u/Plaatinum_Spark · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Pros and cons of curved monitors at this resolution? I've never looked into them before, but someone told me that curved is only good if it's an ultrawide monitor.

I've also been looking at this monitor, it's slightly more expensive but not curved.

Any advice for a newbie with monitors? I have an R9 290 if that means anything. I primarily play League, Overwatch, and Destiny 2.

u/OwnUbyCake · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Looking at this monitor for my first 144hz monitor (https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) and a review says that it doesn't support borderless windowed mode for games. Is that even a thing? Sounds unusual since the aspect ratio seems to be a standard 16:9.

Or would I be better off spending the extra few dollars and getting this on instead? (https://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-1920x1080-144Hz-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8).

Guess I just wanna know if that person is right about the possible lack of borderless windowed and which monitor will truly be the better one.

u/PhilosophicalSlob · 1 pointr/buildapc

>hing more than that would really be pushing into overkill territory unless

So this is the monitor I use to play the games on.

60 hertz


This is a second monitor that is hooked up but I used for general browsing/obs (streaming my games) only.



I play games like rocket league and fortnite and can average 120 fps but during intense moments my fps will normally drop/the game play stutters.

u/AngryMinotaur47 · 1 pointr/Monitors

I don't really care about TN vs IPS, I'll rather have 144hz and 1ms response time. So I've been looking at this one:

For all of you experienced builders out there: don’t worry! I’m using a new app called BuildCores that still doesn’t have some core features so I have to add links for keyboard and mouse.

For OP: sorry that I went a bit over budget! It’s worth it though.

u/DeRodeBaron · 1 pointr/PcBuild

Wait a second, ima find u a better one. (one with g-sync maybe, because Nvidia supports freesync but only if it goes through displayport and not hdmi)

Edit: for example this one, it has the 144hz 1ms
AND it has g sync for your nvidia gpu. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=gsync+144hz+monitor&qid=1566119516&s=gateway&sprefix=G+sync+144&sr=8-3

Used monitors even if they seem fine are not a good idea unless you need a crappy monitor as a 2nd monitor. Personally, I would buy a NEW monitor if you want to use it as your main monitor. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-XFA240-bmjdpr-Response-Technology/dp/B06ZYHZ6R6/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1543583466&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=144+hz+gaming+monitor+1ms&dpPl=1&dpID=51geOOpItVL&ref=plSrch : this is a great monitor for the money and is also 144hz with 1ms response time so its great for gaming.
