    Second monitor

    I was thinking about a second monitor that would not be for gaming. I have the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG279Q. I was maybe thinking for a 4k monitor that would similar size and shape. Because it would not be for gaming I would want quality for watching youtube and Netflix.

    I would rather it be on the lower side of £200 but could go up to that if there is a perfect option.

    HotUKdeals listed a deal yesterday that didn't look too bad for the money, not as sleek as your existing monitor so.

    LG 27UD59P 27" IPS 4K UHD FreeSync Monitor £199.97 @ Laptops Direct

    Re: Second monitor

    I have two monitors at different resolutions. It is OK, but not ideal as you move a window and it doesn't fit on the smaller screen.
