Use this to game. Its pretty great. I thought 32" would be too much but man was I wrong. Its fantastic. I love 1440p gaming and the extra space to do normal stuff is also fantastic.

Does anyone have this monitor and play Overwatch with it?

I have a GTX 1080 (not the TI) with an i7-9700k.
I currently have a ViewSonic XG2402 [amazon.com] gaming monitor.

I want to upgrade to the larger size monitor and 1440p resolution, but I still want to easily achieve a stable 144hz playing Overwatch, my favorite game.

How is the screen size (32") for FPS gaming vs smaller 27" and 24" monitors?
Also considering a 1080p, 244hz monitor or the Sceptre 31" curved monitor with true widescreen, 144 hz and 200 hz via display port, also well as the current Dell frontpage deal for a 27", 1440p resolution, 144hz gaming monitor. All these monitors are around $250-300 at this time.

Tough decision.

VA panel....
You've never played on a va panel, your input is just echoing some random persons thought on the internet.

This monitor is fantastic.

I don't have this exact monitor but i can speak to the size a bit since I'm in the market for a 24"+ and have been reading around. Most people don't mind gaming on 32" and say you aren't really doing any head turning for it. Although some preferred curved and some say it's a bit too big for their preference so YMMV. The most common complaint I see for non vesa is make sure you have space on your desk for it if you go this bigger route.

Also, not trying to come off rude because I play Overwatch a good amount on a regular basis, but it's not the most cinematic nor hardware-intensive game so i'm betting it should be minimal differences across your current and other prospect monitors, and your cpu/psu shouldn't really come into play since you're already good there Smilie Hell, I'd kill for your current monitor with my current "budgetish" build so I'm a bit personally! surprised you're upgrading!

Agreed. I have this monitor with gtx 1080/AMD 3700x and it's great. Moved from a 34in Dell ultra wide and had to turn down the eye-candy but the trade off for the higher refresh was worth it for me.

I had this monitor, but I returned it. Text it too blurry at this size and resolution, and on top of that, 27 inch with QHD is the sweet spot, even though I used a 27 inch G-Sync LG IPS 144hz monitor at FHD. If you don't mind text and accest 100 fps with hdmi 2.0 then buy this. If you want 144 fps, it's only through DP.

The blurry text is an unfortunate symptom of VA panels in general. I have the 850-F version of this and the text is noticably more blurry than my Dell P2715 which has a IPS screen.

yes i definitely think VA should be noted in specs (either title or your summary). nothing against VA and i don't want to start the comment debate (which is often inevitable on monitor deals), but panel-type is tied to price point and important for assessing the value of the deal.

I don't have this exact one, but the model up (32GK850F) that was on sale Cyber Monday for $250 at Costco. https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg...ng-monitor

I will say. Going from a 24" 1080p, this monitor is very big. Like scoot it back on your desk 6 inches big. 144hz is awesome, freesync is great especially with Radeon Chill. The colors aren't as good as my Dell 24" ips u2417h that flank it, but gaming on this has been a pretty good experience.

Ryzen 7 1700 and Radeon 5700 XT for reference.

Hardware unboxed rates this as the best monitor for price vs performance:

incredible buy @ 300$.

If you want a new monitor and this is your budget grab one.
