Believe me it was quite dilemma - should I post two prices in pounds? Or just post UK price in dollars? Or just UK price in pounds? Round or not round? Round up or down?

To avoid future comments please allow me post all options:

* $190 = £114.53

* £247.49 (amazon) = $388.81

Honestly mate, it will be worth it to save your money and buy 144hz.
144hz is such a massive noticeable upgrade, and you will do it eventually so don't waste your money on something that isn't 144hz.

I'm not sure which monitors will be on sale on Black friday, but as a warning DO NOT get this monitor:

It is literally the worst 144hz monitor you can get. Avoid it at all costs. The colours are dull and it just isn't worth it at all.
It's better to spend a little more on a much higher rated monitor

I am biased, but I tend to avoid a lot of Acer monitors. They aren't too great in my personal opinion

u/spaccyginger · 2 pointsr/buildapcsalesuk
u/Hubinator · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I'm thinking about buying a new monitor, but I honestly have no idea which one would be the right one for me.

I have been eyeballing this one right here:

Now to my question: Is the monitor worth the price or are there cheaper alternatives? I was thinking about getting a 1440p monitor to be a bit more future-proof but they are wayyy more expensive - that's why I'm going for the higher frame rate here.

Also: I always had problems with darker areas in video games, as all my monitors had poor brightness. How likely is it that this is (or becomes) a problem with a product like this?

u/ZBastioN · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would suggest you go for any 144Hz monitor, probably even for 1440p since the 1080 will most likely be overkill for any 1080p monitor.

However money will limit you when it comes to choose it, since the cheapest 1440p 144Hz monitor I could find is priced at 470€ at amazon.
Here is a 24" 1080p 144Hz monitor that's within your budget, but as I said your GPU will be able to do more.

Also it's a bit confusing since you're using both Euros and Dollars in your build list, where are you located?

Nice setup as well OP, good on you.

u/F0RCE963 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This one?

You can find more here

I personally have this one from acer and really like it so far, but the built in speakers are really really bad

u/inf3ctYT · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

£170 to go towards a monitor

u/Telsaah · 2 pointsr/Infinitewarfare

PC or console? If its console, then get a 60hz because console games are locked at 60fps

If you're on PC you can get this.

u/fullfire55 · 2 pointsr/buildapcsalesuk

Is the Acer GN246HLBbid 24 inch a good monitor? Some places say the colour is a little washed out. Just looking for a 144hz monitor seeing as I have a gtx 1060 on the way this weekend and want to upgrade. I see some other people have suggested some 144hz monitors but just wondered if there's any others hidden away.

edit: snatched it up for £135. Now i'll see ALL the frames

u/SpinakkerDota · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I just picked up on of the cheapest 144Hz monitors I could find and I have a 970, so I will try to answer you the best I can: It depends on the game and your settings.

I am playing the re-relased Arkham Knight now, and with everything set to max and all gameworks switched off, I can get anything between 60 and 140 pretty much. I don't think the card is at fault because when the framerate drops, I can see my GPU utilization fall of as well. It's still not a flawlessly optimized game, but I get around 90 fps most of the time.

I also played a few games of Overwatch. The game is really well optimized, and with a few adjustments to settings, you can easily get a framerate that never falls below 140 FPS. With all maxed out it hovers around 100. Overwatch is absolutely amazing in 144Hz.

I tried Dota 2 as well, but the game hasn't been performing as well as it should since the reborn update. I am getting ~120 FPS on average with everything maxed out.

I checked back on Witcher 3 as well, and with my usual settings (max with shadows and foliage high, hairworks off), I get around 60-70. It's not the best on this monitor, it's really asking for G-Sync with these settings. I also felt that it was stuttering a bit here and there. Weird.

Oh and I played some CS:GO as well. It went as expected, maxed out, really smooth. I still suck at the game tho.

Overall I am really happy with the monitor. If you play less demanding competitive-ish multiplayer games, a simple 144Hz monitor is a good choice. I didn't want to buy anything more expensive than this because I am still deciding which adaptive sync technology to side with. Don't want to lock myself into Nvidia just because of G-Sync. Also note that my card is always OCed so it's performance is closer to a reference 980 than a 970.

u/kokolordas15 · 2 pointsr/CabaloftheBuildsmiths

tried to do a 980ti system but it ended up costing 1550 without the speakers.(+33)

If you want a 980ti in there you will have to drop the cpu to i5 or the ssd(i guess you need the 16 gigs) x2

final cost 1261,73 with all costs included

u/SeriiouZ · 2 pointsr/Amd

hmm seems like this monitor is only around 30 € cheaper than the freesync one. Last time I checked the price gap was bigger between the two (atleast that is what I thought)

u/darthvader666uk · 1 pointr/HardwareSwapUK

I managed to get one of these on prime day for £136.99. Its a cracking screen and Worth the upgrade:

u/planckssometimes · 1 pointr/buildapc

This is what I'm building soon, comes in about £1050 but I don't have cooling or an ssd. Maybe looking at this will give you some idea of any different way this build could go for a very similar price. I think your CPU Cooler and SSD balances out my more expensive monitor, but you might have different monitors at home already I wouldn't know.

Yeah, I know. I'm using this one :

But that's not where the problem should be at, I haven't changed anything in the settings.

u/wafflemania15 · 1 pointr/FortNiteBR

It’s night and day trust me. As long as your PC can get above 120fps it’s amazing. The one I use is 1440p 144hz, I wouldn’t get this unless you have atleast a gtx 1070. Also what size do you want I use 24” just because my old monitor was a 24 so they’re the same size. One draw back is the colour quality is not as good with the TN panels that high refresh rate monitors use you can get IPS ones with better colours but they run you double the price

1440p one:

1080p one:

u/sharughan · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thanks dude. I will definetly change the hard drive and ssd like you said. It's the fact that so many build guides even in 2019 are using the small ssd for boot and a larger hdd to hold their games and other stuff.

Monitors wise, out of the following which one would you recommend? (this one is 160hz instead of 144hz)


Thanks again FirstSnowz

u/oNx1g · 1 pointr/FragReddit

Ich weiß nicht ob es Tearing ist aber es sieht unflüssig aus wenn ich die maus nach link und rechts bewege. Es geht mir auch nicht Mehr FPS zu erreichen mit dem neuen Monitor sondern eher darum das es sich dann glatt anfühlt. In Pugb zb. komt mir es dann vor wenn ich die Maus schnell gewege als würde die Umgebung nachziehn auch die Bäume als wären da 20 Bäume statt 10. Schwer zu beschreiben weil man das eher fühlt auch. Nutze den Monitor zur zeit

u/VuIpes · 1 pointr/Monitors




All of them are 144hz, and therefore of course, also 120hz.

u/fraggz99 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Do you play fps competitively? get this:

Does competitve fps gaming not intereast you? get this:

Get any 1440p monitor you want :)

u/Jcrashes · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have the following monitor and have found 144hz is great.
I thought i got it cheaper than listed below, might be worth checking around for a better price.

As for quality i would say it is as i expected, i don't know how much more 'quality' would be provided by those which sell for £400+

u/CreamyBanana · 1 pointr/techsupport

I have 2 monitors Acer Predator GN246HLBbid

My GPU is MSI Gtx 980 4Gb Gaming

I manage to achieve 144hz with the DVI connected monitor but, I don't know how im supposed to get the 144hz out of my 2nd monitor with only 1 DVI output on my GPU.

I'm currently using Displayport -> DVI Adapter to my 2nd monitor, but it's only supporting 60hz...

any suggestions on how to achieve 144hz on both?

u/AtomBaenger · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace was ist mit dem hier hat aber kein Displayport also du würdest dvi dual link brauchen dür 144hz. Hdmi kann kein 144hz nur displayport und dvi-duallink ich benutze momentan dvi-duallink und alles klappt. Dvi-dlink ist nur Video aber bei Displayport ist audio Übertragung wie in hdmi aber brauchst du bestimmt nicht weil boxen oder Kopfhörer hast. Ein review von diesen Bildschirm und ein kumpel von mir hat die: aber wenn du etwas besseres haben möchte würde ich mit iiyama gehen gute sachen kosten halt Was hast du für ne pc spec aus neugier und da du deutsch bist hättest du lust irgendwann mal mit mir zu zocken.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

people can say what they want about this monitor but ive had it for a year and it has been nothing short of amazing. no issue with the colors and it looks great on a monitor arm. i think its still the cheapest 144hz 1ms TN monitor on the market.

only problem with it: no display port so you have to use DVI-D.

u/spanishSANCH · 1 pointr/buildapc

something like this?

u/neilbosstime · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Any cheaper 1080p 144hz monitors? For example, what's the difference between your one and this one:

Actually I may consider the 1440p monitor.

u/reigningcloud · 1 pointr/buildapc

is this it?

u/Contact1337 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

So, what are you trying to shit about? If you have a limit of 200, you can't buy something that's worth 250.

Imagine standing on an edge of a cliff. And now go another 50 cm forward. Will have the same effect.

Also: Here is the Amazon Link i'm talking about.

Also²: I was talking about good monitors and not about ones without any Sync support.

u/moranster93 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Hi, guys. Sorry to intrude on an old-ish topic but I'm looking for a monitor stand that I can store the OG XBO console under. I think I'm settled on this one as I'm hoping the mesh will provide sufficient ventilation. If not, is there another one I should be looking at as I'm having quite the nightmare staying within budget. Thank you in advance.

P.S. Using a mount isn't feasible as it's currently on a dresser so nowhere to clip the mount. :) It's a 24" monitor, this one if it helps.

EDIT: Formatting.

u/Rob1811 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Acer GN246HLB 24-inch Full HD Monitor (TN panel, 144Hz, 1ms, HDMI, DVI)

Got this a couple of weeks ago. Been great. Iv been using a tv prior to this so not much to compare it too....but the difference in my performance in games like CS:GO has been night and day.

u/iTurret · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

i recently changed to this monitor:

i really love it. it feels way better to play on it. The game just feels way smoother, and the monitor isn't that expensive.

u/jack0rias · 1 pointr/PcMasterRaceBuilds

This one is officially recommended by PCMR in their build guide.

This one is something else I am looking at.

Both feature 144hz, 1ms response time and both are 1920x1080 displays.

u/cadavra41 · 1 pointr/Monitors

For freesync, most monitors that have it will likely be out of your price range so unless you hate screen tearing I would say don't prioritize it.

TN panels have faster response times but lose color at an angle, IPS are a bit slower but have more vibrant colors and don't have as much color shift at an angle.

I have 3 monitors I would recommend, the freesync is out of your price range slightly but is about as full featured a 1080p monitor you can get.

1080p 144Hz TN Freesync

1080p 144Hz TN

1080p 60Hz IPS

Quick edit: most of the monitors with those features have moved on to 2560x1440 resolutions or higher so your options are going to be limited.

u/Cheesyburps · 1 pointr/buildapc

Oh I understand. You could maybe go for a used 6700k, I saw a few going for around 240 euros. It is still expensive, but you could fix most of your problems in that one upgrade.

Unless you are buying the monitor because your old one died, I would 100% go for the cpu upgrade. That way you will be able to play games at a locked 60, then you can upgrade the monitor to a higher refresh rate and you can enjoy it fully. Something like this would be a perfect match for a 1060 and a 6700k.

u/Poschi1 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm buying a monitor for my PC, budget is around £200. I've seen this one, can you think of any better? Alternatively does anyone know of any places that will have good monitor deals tomorrow?

u/WonDahMan · 1 pointr/buildapc

this is one of the best price for the specs for 120/144hz monitors, if you do go for 120 though. 14hz difference really isn't going to be noticed

u/rond0cs · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Yes 100% worth. I recommend this, but its your choice.

u/Cartiie · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

> Acer GN246HL

Looking at the [Amazon link] ( It says it has windows 8 included, how is that possible if its a monitor?


u/R4134 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

did a quick search on amazon for you (based on original link). There are tons of 24" or 27" monitors for that price point. I would suggest sticking with BenQ, Acer, LG and Asus as brands (I prefer BenQ personally and have never had an issus with any of my three monitors).

Could go with:

original one you linked


If you can stretch to 170:

u/kw1k2345 · 1 pointr/buildapcforme
u/osfrid · 1 pointr/buildapc

Oh, and, for your monitor, this one is very nice for gaming and will works well with your GTX 1060 (144 Hz, 1 ms). For once, it's cheaper on (229.99€).

u/CrazyChopstick · 0 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

>Gone from £200+ to £160!

Barely even discounted

>Gone from £50 to £20

It hasn't

Please check for actual prices before getting excited over sales, amazon tends to hide the real prices when "sales" are happening.
