Hi

My son is looking to upgrade his monitor and has a budget of £300-350, possibly £400 if it’s really worth it. Was hoping some of you lovely people may be able to advise.

He’s been using an old viewsonic which is pretty awful.

A 1440p panel would be nice for future proofing, but I’m sure his rig will struggle: i5 4440, 16GB DDR3, 980ti.

Thanks

I recently bought this one as auxiliary screen:

1440p, very good image quality and around 200 pounds, although it is not huge by any means (just 24"). However, bear in mind that this screen has an IPS panel and a refresh rate of 60Hz. I use for gaming a 4K screen that is also IPS and 60Hz and I am more than happy with it, but it cannot be considered a gaming monitor.
