    Hi everyone

    I am looking for a 27"+ 1440p gaming monitor for under £500, and given the recent changes with Nvidia around G-SYNC certifications on monitors, I'm not sure which monitor to now get as there are now so many to choose from. I'm leaning more towards an IPS I think.

    Here is my system:

    Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Elite Intel Z390 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard
    Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6GHz (Coffee Lake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - OEM
    Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Pro OC 11264MB GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    Team Group Vulcan T-Force 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-24000C16 3000MHz Dual Channel
    Samsung 970 EVO Polaris 500GB M.2 2280 PCI-e 3.0 x4 NVMe Solid State Drive
    Samsung 1TB 860 EVO SSD 2.5" SATA 6Gbps 64 Layer 3D V-NAND Solid State Drive (MZ-76E1T0B/EU)
    Seagate 2TB BarraCuda 7200RPM 256MB Cache HDD *System Stock*
    Seasonic Focus Plus 850W 80 Plus Platinum Modular Power Supply
    Microsoft Windows 10 Home Advanced - Systems
    Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow Full Tower Case - Black

    In exactly the same predicament. I’m yet though to find a 27”, 1440p, 144hz, IPS panel sub £500. If you sacrifice refresh rate, it is possible, but that’s something of a compromise.

    very interested in the monitor also. kind of in the same boat. I've been looking at a few but there is always something lacking. i know there is no perfect monitor, at least in this era. if LG releases this at a decent price and it reviews well i'm in.
