Hi, I had this in the "Monitor" section but no replys,I was thinking of getting a new monitor, old monitor is Dell U2412, I am thinking I will have a better web browsing experience and viewing my photos with a display(27"?)and Resolution of 2560x1440 and better refresh rate, compared to the Dell (1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz)?
I have the Ryzen 3 3200G , is the the Ryzen 3 3200G good enough for a new monitor 2560x1440 resolution and higher refresh rate?or would I need to upgrade the Ryzen 3200G, or add on a Graphics card?
Budget is £300 -£400 for monitor.
This is my MB and memory...

Should work fine but if your not happy then you could always drop in a gpu if needed. As your not gaming you don't need a high refresh rate monitor , things like led backlight, ips , colour correction can enhance image quality.

the only game I've played on this computer is Links 2003,lol
Thinking of sticking to IPS monitor and I went with 2560x1440 as @EsaT mentioned in a reply to someone that 2560x1440 would be a better web browsing experience than 1920x1200.
Cheers

For non-gaming uses 60Hz is always fine.
(when not talking about CRTs)
Neither there's any need for the fastest response times.
And AMD's APUs have 3840x2160 as max resolution.

2560x1600 would be better than lowered screen 2560x1440.
But fashion marketing killed that better aspect ratio and 2560x1440 is now the least bad.
Though curiously considering many years long delays in getting gaming capable monitors out, there are actually quite many 60Hz 4K monitors in that price range like this Asus.
Though small size limits benefit from resolution at least without relatively clsoe distance.

OcUK actually doesn't have much 60Hz models listed.

That first 32" AOC and BenQ would have wider colour space than old "lowest common denominator" sRGB...
But of course need use of colour managenement to get accurate colours.

Thanks EsaT, we sit about 2' from screen, would 32'' be too big ?
See a few you mentioned are out of stock at Overclockers, suppose I could look elsewhere to buy.
