Any 144 hz with 24 inch of size at least would be good, I would recommend the samsung shg50, gaming monitor.

hey wolf! glad to see u posting 

 

https://www.centrecom.com.au (it will take it to it, i just shortened the text)

 

Found this as the cheapest au one at just below my budget (379).. though the site says its 25", googling it says its 24.5, but whatever, rounded and its still .5 inches bigger then my current.

 

144hz is very nice, as mine is probably only 60.

 

Also with freesync mmmm @AwesomeMcCoolName dunno if you're into monitors but this seems pretty good, and its samsung

asus vg248qe

Exactly $399. 24" and inbuilt speakers which are nice.

 

144hz

 

Looks possible a bit of a thicker border then the wolf one.

 

No freesync

 

Though i do get $30 gift card if i buy it before 31st of december lmao

 

--------------------------------------------------

Both same brightness and response time....

 

Leaning towards the samsung as it has freesync and I think i'd prefer that over speakers, plus $20 cheaper.

 

Hopefully Awesome can provide some input.

Freesync doesn't do anything with an Nvidia GPU, so it's not the biggest deal right now (although looking forward it could be a detriment).

 

Response time is pretty meaningless since there is no consistent way of measuring it. The speakers built into monitors are all pretty terrible. Just try and find reviews for both and see how they compare/which suits your needs/preferences better.

Wow i just checked pcpartpicker for the cheapest 144hz monitor, it was $189 and i was like damn may as well just do that

 

Realised i was on US

 

change to aus and the cheapest is 349, next is the VG248QE lmao

 

So if we convert that, americas cheapest is $251 aud, and ours is $349 AUD

 

Living in Aus sucks for stuff like this :( 

 

 

(also what do u mean by the detriment?)

Just gonna say Im a glad customer for the monitor. You can adjust the brightness and stuff itself with the power button of the monitor, pretty cool.

well i currently have a Dell U2410 (60hz, was set at 59 hz)

 

Which seems to be at $300 brand new somehow.

 

It's got a very thick border irltho (measured about 1 inch border) for the monitors i've seen anyway

 

But worth the upgrade? The only thing that'll be missing is the USB ports on the side, but I don't even use them and didn't know they were there until i googled this monitor RN

If you upgrade to an AMD GPU in the future before you replace the monitor then Freesync would be nice to have.

I'd personally keep the U2410, but I prefer IPS over high refresh rate.
