I'm looking at buying a new monitor. I can pick up a Dell S2716DG 2560 x 1440 144Hz monitor with a TN panel and Gsync for 450 canadian or an ASUS MG28U 4k gaming monitor with a 60 Hz refresh and freesync.

Which would you guys prefer when it comes to gaming and general use.

Gsync 120 he is my rock bottom gaming spec now. Stick to Asus if you can.

Looks like I'll have to keep waiting. Neither of those monitors support HDR and the ASUS had a 60Hz refresh rate. It is getting harder and harder to make a decision on anything PC related now. Hell, I'm having trouble just deciding on whether to buy another gaming laptop or go back to a desktop system. Let alone deciding what the specs should be.

What are the specs on your rig right now?

1tb boot SSD, 2tb Steam folder spinning disk. WD Black I think.
Sounds like a wicked system. One last question. Did you do your own build or get a pre-built. The components sound like it might have been a DYI.
