    Default Looking for a real gaming monitor any of you guys have a LG 32GK850G ?

    Any of my fellow PC gamers have own this monitor? I'm running an i7-4790K (4.00GHz) , MSI Gaming 5 (MS-7917) motherboard, GeForce GTX 1080 SC (EVGA).

    My current monitor is an early Asus 4K with a less than steller refresh.. looking at getting a gaming monitor this has some great reviews but I actually trust you guys.

    Close, I use this one, and like it. Its not the best picture or size, wow factor but rather a monitor that allows you to game more competitively.

    Yours seems to be a newer model perhaps.

    Gsync and 144 hz is a huge upgrade

    It's a pretty decent chunk of change, I don't know much about the Gsync but in theory (like SLI ) it sounds great, I'll have to do my research in terms of if it's worth the extra coin or not. I know I'm firing more rounds (and missing) then I need to be due to my refresh at times, certainly when I'm hunting infantry from up high.

    RD, I looked at that one, I thought man is that going to be to big? I maybe 2 feet from the monitor, I could say that I also use the rig for office work when I'm not playing but that would a lie since I end up doing the day job from my MacBook (Just another IT guy..)

    How far away from the monitor do you play ?

    thanks,
    Ray

    Again, Gsync and 144hz plus is huge. It makes everything comparatively glassy/buttery smooth. Asus and Nvidia work well together. I run mine off a ROG laptop. I’d bet RD monitor has a better picture but I bet the Asus is smoother. Up to you on what is important. YouTube reviews help.

    Red , I'm guessing you would mow me down even if you were using a late 90's CRT while hitting the degauss button just because you can...

    Doesn't need to be pretty, just need to see the little ants running through the field from the chopper... lol.. I have had good luck with Asus monitors, that's my current it's a 4K , it just became clear to me how much the monitor refresh after I built this rig, I had the monitor with a Nvidia 960 and you didn't have to worry because the card couldn't keep up with anything over 1900 rez anyway.. Time to hit YouTube see what the best bang for the buck is , all of these monitors are in the same price range with the Gsync
