Since my Vega64 just went up in smoke, I've recently bought a 6900XT GPU (damn you scalpers) and am thinking about upgrading my monitor to go with it. I've been using a Dell Ultrasharp 1440p for a while, but it's just a bog-standard office monitor so the tearing is unbelievable and I'm noticing it more and more now.
Since I have the horsepower, I'm thinking of going to 4k, but I am torn, since I don't seem to be able to find a monitor with just the right combo of the following ideal specs:
- High refresh rate (120Hz or above, not bothered about it being 144Hz specifically, nor any kind of overclocking)
- 4K ideally (or at least a leap up from 2160x1440, particularly if the screen will be physically larger).
- 1-2ms response times
- 27" to ~38" panel (28-32" being ideal I think).
- Not a super-ultrawide, but no less than 3440x1600 if it's a widescreen.
I am a bit constrained by space, so I think I've decided that a 32" 4K flat or curved panel would be ideal, but there just do not seem to be any 4K high-refresh rate 32" panels out there at the moment. Does anyone have recommendations for this - or know if any are on the horizon in 2021?
Since I'm struggling to find the above, I'm considering a ultrawidescreen at 1600 vertical such as the LG 38GL950G or 38GN950, however, these are expensive and possibly a bit large for my space. Alternatively, the 'safe' option is a direct swap for another 27" 4K flat panel such as the LG 27GN950, which seems to be the gaming monitor of choice at the moment (but no stock anywhere 😡 ). The Samsung Odyssey line up is compelling too, but no 4K offerings at the moment.
So in effect, I'm trying to find a happy medium for the above. Any recommendations/personal anecdotes welcome.
