    Question Any 27" - 29" Monitor Suggestions?

    Greetings,

    I currently own a (24") LG 24M77 monitor which is still very pleasant and has been a great purchase:
    ... as recommended by TomsHS in March '15.
    I have been particularly pleased with the vibrant colours (unlike my previous TN panel) and the higher refresh rate.

    I am on the cusp of purchasing a new PC (GTX 1070 GPU) system and was inclined to think that this would be a good juncture to have a larger monitor. Unfortunately, the budget (<£499) will not (AFAIK) stretch to a G-Sync enhanced one.

    I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

    Kind regards.

    Where from Ttaskmaster, I just bought a GTX1080 so I've been looking for something to compliment it.

    What about this one:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-Predat...keywords=gsync

    It uses a VA panel but it is curved and is only 1080p. OTH,it does seem to have some eye tracking technology:

    Someone on OCUK was selling one, as he'd just gotten a massive 40" curved widescreen thing.
