Question

What monitor should I get for my gaming rig?

So I am getting my first pc built from DS. I’m just deciding on a monitor now... I’ve been researching and it boils down to these four.

I play a lot of overwatch but single player game. So I value performance an immersion. Quality control is also important.

My specs:
I9 990k
32 GB ram
2080 RTX TI
ASUS rog godlike motherboard

ASUS ROG PG279Q
ACER Predator X34P
ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQ
Alienware aw34

Here's the similar (?) i9 build.

In that build they went to dual 2080's so they could finally get to UHD 4K gaming.

Kudos on that first monitor (the only one I checked since it's a 1440p display which means you should be killing it on a single 2080. All the eye candy should work and hit 60+ FPS on everything.

To get anything more you'll have to hit the stores to see what you can in each monitor. There are reviews but you know your goals better than I do.

Some steps

Determine what size screen you want.
You don't want a 32" monitor sitting 2ft in front of your nose.

1440P

120hz or faster refresh rate.

Response time.....lower is better.

Panel types you can research those.
