    What is this? 2012? Where is my 34", 4K, IPS, HDR 600, 10-bit, VRR, HDMI 2.1 monitor for £600-£700? :)

    looks exactly same to mine asus vg279q, why release again the same model with same resolution, response time, hertz frequency and etc?

    I'm trying to decide on a new monitor currently. I know I want a 27 inch with 144hz, but not sure if I should spend the extra on 1440p.

    It depends ! I was stuck with FHD for over 10 years now . So for me I want 1440p.
    Another FHD for me is not an option . But keep in mind for 1440p and 144hz you need a good videocard, depending on what games you play. Somethin in the lines of 2070 S - 2080 , 3xxx etc.

    Assuming new monitor will last 10 years, 4K would be more future proof.

    GeForce RTX 2080 Ti can do 90 FPS and Radeon RX 5700 XT can do 66 FPS in nice looking games like Strange Brigade on Ultra Quality on 3840x2160 resolution now.

    If performance of hardware is improving 30% per year then medium-high end GPU will do 200-280 FPS on Ultra Quality on 4K monitor in 5 years.

    If you add eye tracked rendering technology to monitors then you will hit FPS limits much sooner.

    Strange brigade is a nice looking game, but it's not that demanding ! Try R6Siege , AC Odyssey , Rdr2 , heck , even tropico 6 is more demanding *( true , not GPU side but CPU side ) ...
    It's true that a 4k will be more future proof. ... but right now I don't see a viable solution ( money wise ) ... for 4K , 144 hz , and MAYBE HDR ! On top of that , after paying for a 4k I will need at least the best video card ... I know this is a hobby for ALL of us ... but we also have to provide in house !
    So, as stated ... I stay by my opinion ....FOR ME ... 1440p ... 144hz ... HDR 600 ... this will be my sweet spot ... for something like 500 - 600 euros ( a man can dream )

    I been on 1440p 144hz since 2018 and had nothing but issues on Samsung CHG70 Freesync 2 monitor. 4K is too much for a RTX 2080 but damn it that Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ price drop looking too good to pass up especially 4K 144hz HDR 1000 and Gsync.

    Going to 1440p is a concern because it is more demanding, but the option to back down to 1080p is always there and I do plan on getting a mid-range Ampere when released. I don't want to spend too much of my stimulus check on a monitor so I've been eyeing the MSI Optix series, this one in particular: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824475051

    Some questions I had maybe you guys can help me answer is regarding G-Sync and AMD Free-Sync. It seems like G-Sync didn't really catch on and the majority of the monitors I've been looking at all support AMD free-sync, is that ok for Geforce cards?

    If your GPU can't handle 144hz is the gameplay still smoother than a 60hz monitor? Red Dead 2 for example I run 60fps most of the time, but do get dips around 45fps so would that look any different on a 144hz monitor?
