Looking to upgrade next week. Budget is around 300 bucks.

120/144hz or larger than 1080p is a must.

Larger 24"+ IPS 1080p panels are also welcome.

ASUS VG248QE.

Colors are a little washed out right out of the box, but there's ICC profiles to help with that.

It's looking like a tossup between

My VG248QE just arrived a couple of days ago.
It's simply amazing for competitive games like CSGO.

I haven't really tried out other games, because I've been stuck with CSGO and dota.
1ms response+144hz ftw.

It's weird that pirates would go from shore to shore looking for buried treasure,
when the real treasure was in the friendships they were making.

So that's 2 for the Asus.

Does anybody know off the top of their head whether it's compatible with gsync modules?

Was going to buy a benq something something Tx. The 24 inch 144hz one that comes with the nvidia 3dvision kit.

Was going to get it from buydig.com for 230+shipping. If anybody wants the link I've got it.

But being Canadian, I didn't want to pay import fees and in the off chance something goes wrong, I'd rather do returns within Canada.

So I went for that Asus from amazon. Should be here on Friday. Stupid free slow shipping.
