I am using a pair of old and slow Dell 1080p 60 Hz monitors from work and planning replacing them with a pair of 1440p. I use the same desk for my work laptop and gaming PC (Ryzen 7 5800X3D and 3070 Ti). I'm on a fairly limited budget and was looking at the following options. I'm based in the US. Just curious what people think.
I don't do much AAA gaming on the computer mostly playing older games and indies and have a tight budget of under $250 a piece. I do data analytics for a living, and use 3 monitors currently (2 plus a laptop screen). And I'm not super interested in going with a single ultrawide. I've tried using a single large 32 in at the office and it just slowed me down.
Are you looking for the monitors to be a certain refresh rate or have any specific ports on them?
I'm honestly open to any suggestions. My nearest Microcenter is a bit of a hike, so I like to pick items out ahead of time. I was also looking at the Acer Nitro XV272U.
Nothing specific for refresh, just over 144hz. As for ports, DP and HDMI. My work laptop dock connects by HDMI and my desktop is DP.
I personally don't use any monitors in this configuration type, so perhaps someone else will chime in with some more direct suggestions, based on reviews and our sales I'd suggest looking at these right now if you haven't already:
These options as well as the ones you've already listed have a lot of good reviews and fit in the price range you were looking at.
We would also have a variety of monitors on display to check out directly at each of our stores as well!
