    I'm reaching out to the overclockers community as I've been looking at monitors and found myself getting very confused with which one to buy/ I've done a few hours of reading reviews but still cannot come to a conclusion. I'd like a bit of help if possible from you guys :).

    PC Specs:
    • Geforce 1070 GTX
    • i5 6600k
    • 16GB DDR4 Ram
    • Currently gaming and coding on 1 monitor at 1080p (its about 12 years old)

    Requirements for the monitor are:
    • Budget £400 - £600
    • 27"
    • 1440p with 144hrz or more
    • Dual monitors would be great if possible
    • I play a wide range of games FPS, RPG and RTS
    • I use multiple web browsers, Visual Studio and Visual Code daily

    About time to change that downgraded low screen already as new.
    (1920x1200 would have been proper monitor resolution)

    Acer has cheapest the 2560x1440 IPS
    Beyond £400 choise starts increasing, though quite a few are out of stock

    Including LG 27GL850, which has very fast response times competing against many TNs.
    Lenovo Y27Q-20 would have same panel at 165Hz.

    Though if you prefer dark/dimly lighteg room, then IPS isn't good and VA shines with its highest contrast/best black of LCDs.
