Check comparisons on RTings, you would be surprised how well the older and much cheaper displays hold up. Last years models might be bargains. I did the same for the new Ultrawide Odyssey G9 vs the older 49" CRG9 / C49RG90 (US/UK) display, both are 2x 27" 1440p monitors side by side with a curve. The only real benefit of the G9 is 240Hz vs 120Hz max refresh, in some ways the G9 is a little worse! (I especially dont like the tighter curve of the G9, I sit a bit further back.) But to use the G9s 240Hz refresh at native res requires the use of compression (DSC) over DP because it doesnt have HDMI 2.1, so only 20xx series cards onward get the benefit. The older CRG9 can be overclocked to 144Hz 8bit/colour with a custom res. But this might have a bit of dark smear, I'll have to check. Another downside of the CRG9 is HDR with 10bit/colour maxes at 100Hz due to bandwidth limits (doesnt support DSC). However, I use HDR on my Q9FN TV (also a 2018 Samsung VA) at 8bit and its absolutely fine, so this might work well on the CRG9 to keep it at 120Hz and input lag really low. To this end, with few differences, I just bought the C49RG90, should be here in a few days, lockdown fun Thats 1/2 the price of the new G9 saved! I just realised, theres nowhere to enter the display you use in account settings.
