My PC is:

  • i5-6600K on Asus Z170-A
  • Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8GB
  • 16GB RAM

I have 2 monitors - Dell U2414H and old Samsung that I want to replace.

I choosing between:

  • 2nd Dell U2414H
  • Dell U2715H (or Dell U2717D)
  • Acer XB271HU

What monitor will be best choice long term wise? I dont plan to upgrade my PC for next 2 years.

Mostly I work on that PC and play games like WoW, SC2, Civilization VI, Tomb Raider etc.


I ended up with Acer XB271HU and pretty happy. I can achieve 120 FPS with my setup in all competitive games I play and in general picture quiality seems decent.


You can opt for the "Dell U2717D" transition because you'll be upgraded in two years.Two years later, display technology is certainly not comparable to today's.
