    I'm using triple AOC 27" IPS monitors. Love the color & viewability angle of IPS monitors. Dislike being limited to 60 Hz.

    Single 27" IPS 144Hz here.
    Could use happily a 21:9 but not at the expenses of framerate (no way Im coming back to something below 120Hz).
    And if I had the room for triples I wouldn't mind too :laugh: (oh wait VR is coming also :ninja:)

    As I stated in another thread my 28" 4k monitor is faulty so I'm getting a refund. I'm not sure which way to go monitor wise now as I've tried everything. I can only afford 3x24 or 1x decent 27.

    Single Asus PG279Q, WQHD (2560 X 1440) 27 inch / 144 hz standaard (OC'ed to 165) / IPS / G-sync
    Plus:
    - Gsync
    - 144 hz
    - colours IPS
    - joystick on the back for menu // menu itself

    Cons:
    - I use the VESA mount 100x100 so i do not need the monitors foot, which is a hefty large device with lighting tilting all direction and more. Its time we can buy monitors with a foot or without one making price difference.

    Hi Jim. As you probably know, I use a 34" LG monitor Ultrawide and I am very happy with it. It works great with Track IR5.
    regards

    Hello Jim, Well i use 3x24inch BenQ 120htz monitors, Really happy with these. I got them with the intention to use nVidea 3D, And all i can say is, its the best bit of kit ive owned..
    The only draw back is to run say AC with high setting and in 3D is a real frame killer,
    1 Titan graphics card did struggle, but 2 works a treat in sli. It added a new dimension to my racing..

    I'm using an Asus MW221u for ages now, which needs to get replaced sooner than later. I love the dotpitch on it, so it is hard to find a bigger screen with a similar value for less than "a million bucks". And it should also run with my current system... haha... Looking for an Asus MX299q...

    43" Panasonic Plasma TV - very low input lag & great big image. You can find decent ones for around 150 to 200 euro's.

    Yeah I get the big image attraction, I'm using a 40" 4k samsung with 19ms but it's making it awkward to watch normal tv.

    Jim, it's the LG34UM68. 2560x1080p and works brilliant with my RX480 AMD card using Freesync. I don't really care about 4k as I prefer to run my sims and other stuff with good fast fame rates. It does the job for me and it was quite cheap.
