I just bought a HP Omen i7 7700 desktop combo with a matching 27" G-Sync monitor. Desktop has NVIDIA Gforce 1060, 16GB RAM, 256SSD.

I already have a Samsung S34E790C 34" curved display so is it worth replacing my current monitor with HP Omen G-Sync 27" or just keep my Samsung and eBay the HP monitor?

I don't play much of PC games but I do graphics design and video editing so I am debating which monitor to keep. Both monitor will sell for around same price on eBay.

i'd keep the curved one. it has more real state which is more helpful for graphics/design. the only negative is that it doesn't have the response time of the gsync monitor.

the other thing to look at is color accuracy.

In that case it should be a no-brainer. Keep the Sammy as it's a VA whereas the HP is a TN panel.

Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve! Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.

I like large 34" Samsung monitor but G-Sync sounds very interesting. I don't want to open up the box just to try out the new HP Omen. If it's not worth replacing, I will sell it.
