Best Budget 1440p display

Hey guys I recently upgraded to a GTX 1070 and so I would like to utilise the power this card has, but as i just blew $600ish dollars on a graphics card I don't have all that much money left to spend on a monitor so what is the best "bang for your buck" 1440p Monitor in your guys opinion?

    Depends, delving into the world of korean monitors there are many choices :P.  Do you want 120hz or 60hz? There is the Pixio here - https://goo.gl/YuxWs5 which would probably be my first choice, Though here is hands down the cheapest 1440p 27 inch you can get - https://goo.gl/bXHJ3E
    The glass ones I used in my video are drying up.... here is the closest thing - https://goo.gl/HpNMYS :(. They look gorgeous though.
    Happy New Year's Everyone, here is to an awesome 2017!

    I personally use a Qnix 2710, pretty damned good for the price and can overclock to 96hz. Only one input and a crap stand though.

  • I've been using a Dell U2715H for a while now, they're pretty good value for money (mine only overclocks stably to 75hz, but at 2560x1440 my 980Ti struggles to keep that frame rate on modern titles so I don't enable VSync). 

    I had an Asus PG278Q but was a little unlucky with the panel quality so sent it back a few times over the months until it finally gave up the ghost, and got a refund. 

    I'd say get something like the smaller U2515 (or similar) for use as a desktop and save up for a GSync model later down the line. The Pixio Bro-an mentioned seems like a good middle ground, though haven't tried one yet, we're a little technologically delayed here in the U.K.

    I can't speak for 1440p Dell monitors, but I've used a 24 inch 1200p one and it is outstanding, great colours and excellent build quality. Professional quality if you ask me. Dell really knows how to make good monitors. Was pretty expensive at the time though. My dad uses it and he does photo editing so colour accuracy is very important. I have done some gaming on it and never noticed any drawbacks, maybe there would be in pro gaming.


    For best budget to performance you HAVE to go Korean Though.

    I found a cheap 1440p monitor called the BENQ BL2420PT for 250 euros but it 'only' is 60 hz. 

    EDIT: I am planning on getting a GTX1070 system too, so I am looking into a 1440p monitor too. You pay a premium for 144 hz though :/ 
  • Hey Just found a Dell UltraSharp U2711 for around $240Aud just wondering if anyone else here has used this monitor and can recommend it?
