New 2020 32" curved monitor from Dell - gets a really good review on RTINGS. BB has it for 100$ off which appears to be the lowest it has been so far. Seems like a good deal.

Picked up this monitor 2 weeks ago, and I absolutely love it! Great uniformity, low color shift when viewing off angles, and low ghosting as when I compared it to the AOC CQ32G1.

In regards to GSync compatibility, I did also experience some temporary black screens while playing games, and I found a solution on Reddit. Use the CRU tool (Customer Resolution Utility) to set the lower Freesync range from the default of 48-164Hz up to 50-164Hz. This solved my blackout issues, and the performance has been amazing.

If you have an American Express card, look for the offer of $30 statement credit for spending $300+ in Best Buy. That makes my offer more slick.

I've had the c32hg70, the Acer xz321qu, and some viewsonic vx3258-2kc-mhd.

C32HG70 was by far the best one. However, I had some dead pixels in the middle, and am using the Acer atm(do not recommend), 400 nits, 165hz(oc), and gsync compatible. At this price I'd buy if you're in the market for a panel. I might actually buy this.

There is a concern though about it being gsync compatible(I have this problem on my Acer too), if at 165hz, it appears to be going to a black screen in some games, or losing signal entirely and recovering after a few seconds. My Acer suffered from this, but an nvidia driver update later down the road appeared to have fixed it(though the Acer panel is too slow for it to be viable with gsync on). So perhaps this will be fixed as well.

Once you enable gsync via the driver, the overdrive feature will DEFAULT to normal(and you can not change it), and if it's too slow the experience quickly becomes a blurry, ghosting mess.

If I hook this up to a Maxwell GPU, what will be the max refresh rate? I know Pre-pascal GPUs doesn't support freesync, but will it still be limited at 75hz?

As you mentioned, GSync/Freesync functionality won't be supported, but you may still run the full resolution and refresh rates depending on the ports of your GPU:
HDMI v1.4 - This port is limited to about 74Hz @ 1440p
HDMI v2.0 - You'll be able to run 144Hz @ 1440p
DisplayPort v1.2 or higher (recommended) - You'll be able to run the full 165Hz @ 1440p

Thanks. I never had a monitor that supports more than 60hz Smilie I have a Titan X GTX (Maxwell). I really wonder what 120hz would look like in a game Big Grin

I have some Dell credits and submitted a price match request with BB promotion. Lets see whether they will approve it.

OP, you may want to include some of the specs (like gaming, VA panel, 1440p, or 165Hz) in the subject to make it easier to understand.

Just my opinion, the size is too big for most average desktop. If size matters to you. You may as well go even bigger and wall mount. I'm regretting on getting a 32" for 144Hz gaming. I just can't fit it anywhere.

Get a bigger desk? Bigger screen equals better immersion.

I have a 32 inch monitor and a medium sized desk and it fits nicely with my tower and two speakers on the desktop. Wall mounted TVs can't provide the high refresh rates we want, and monitors larger than 32 are very expensive. A bigger desk would be cheaper than either of those options.

I've always found 27" to be the sweet spot for 1440p. I don't know why monitor manufacturers are trying to make 32" the new standard...
