Which monitor is best for gaming-- with a price max of $1,000

This would be more of a part 2 thread.... but with more detail so that I can finally make my mind up!

I currently have a Philips BDM4065UC and I am beginning to believe I have purchased the wrong monitor.

I won't be 4k gaming, but I DO want a glossy monitor. The only time I won't consider it is if they are being phased out for some reason. (I don't see why they would be).

My budget is $1,000. What's the best monitor (or monitors) I can get for this price range? As large as necessary.

If you believe the monitor I have is okay... let me know! I'll probably have to lower the resolution when gaming so that the 4k doesn't destroy my GTX 970...

I also think those ultra-wide monitors are a bit much.... I don't want my games to be distorted.

Hi,
What is wrong with this monitor ?
Philips BDM4065UC 40" Class 4K Monitor
Large as my t.v.

Personally I would put the money into a new 980ti pick your own brand the Zodiac looks wicked clocks pretty wicked too

Narrr not if you have a card to push it
Otherwise yea get a 27"
980ti is a 2k card but you can buy 2 and sli
If you want a 4k card the titan x is what you want and oddly the 1000.00 you have to spend

Alrighty. Hopefully you're still around. I'm in another dillema. I decided to return the 4k monitor. I'm now stuck between getting the Acer 1440 IPS 144Hz monitor (sold out currently), or the Acer XB270H. I'm also open to the BenQ monitors nd this Philips 272G5DYEB that there seems to be really now review about. however my issue is with quality control. I've seen so many videos recommending one monitor.... while online reviews on let's say Amazon or new egg report quality control issues.... I'm willing to stay with 1080p for now.... as long as the kinks have been worked out. I just don't want to end up spending $700 on a Gsync monitor (I'm wanting Gsync) if I'm just going to get tons of dead pixels... or light bleeding etc.

Hi,
You can post links to the products your interested in
I got this one here the reviews sucked but the reality is it's a very good monitor,
The speakers suck though which isn't a big deal I have better ones I'm using,
ASUS VG248QE 24" 1080p 144Hz 3D Gaming LED Monitor 90LMGG001Q022CUL - Micro Center

I believe AddRam was looking at this one

Alrighty! So, you posted this one AOC G2460PG 24" G-SYNC 3D-Ready Ultimate Performance Gaming Monitor 1ms(GTG) 144hz DisplayPort Widescreen LED Backlight - Newegg.com.

I am looking at Amazon.com: Philips 272G5DYEB 27-Inch G-Sync Ultimate Performance Gaming Monitor 144hz, 1MS, 3D Ready: Computers & Accessories

and also

Amazon.com: Acer XB270H Abprz 27-inch Display Full HD NVIDIA G-SYNC (1920 x 1080) Widescreen Monitor: Computers & Accessories


+

Amazon.com: BenQ G-SYNC Hybrid Engine 24-Inch Gaming Monitor XL2420G: Computers & Accessories

I'm stuck between reliability and screen size. The philips only has a very very tiny amount of reviews and the panel is only available on amazon.

27" seems to be the magic number for most, 144hz and 1440p with either 3d and/or G-sync, I think you'll be happy with that.

apart from the glossy screen, this fits the bill Amazon.com: ASUS PG278Q ROG Swift 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor: Computers & Accessories

Hi,
Not sure with your budget I would look into a Sony
Just remember your gpu is going to be the maker or breaker of any monitor 2k or 4k
I'm not sure which I would get I would get one that Amazon sells and ships
Which there is only 2 Philips or BenQ
I'd say try the Philips if you have issues report them asap or send it back.
