150
PLUSIT15

Best price I've seen so far on this 144hz LCD. It normally retails for $799 @ PCCG. Redeem a bonus $50 Gift card as well.

Minimum Spec of GPU you will want to play at WQHD at 144hz: AMD RX 580's (either 4GB / 8GB), and AMD Vega 56 or higher.

If you're on the green team, you'll need a GTX 1060 (6GB) at the minimum but a GTX 1070 or 1070 Ti would be recommended for this type of resolution and refresh rate.

Description:

  • 32 inch 1800R curved gaming monitor with ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate designed for professional gamers and immersive gameplay

  • 125% sRGB color space gamut for a wider range of lifelike, vibrant colors and Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync) technology for no-tearing visuals

  • ROG Strix XG Series gaming monitors feature ASUS Aura Sync lighting on the back and a customizable light signature projection for gaming-inspired aesthetics

  • Features an ergonomically designed stand to offer extensive swivel, tilt, and height adjustment

    Newbie question - i assume it is worth the extra ~$80 over this one? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/402973

      yes definitely.

      This one is a 16:9 aspect ratio while the Kogan one is 21:9 aspect ratio. The Kogan one is also WQHD 3440 × 1440 resolution while this is 2560x1440, and different refresh rate.

      The key differences are:

      • Ultra widescreen is better for productivity

      • Some e-sports games don't support ultra widescreen officially because the developer deems having it gives you an unfair advantage (wider FOV) so running the games at 21:9 still gives you a stretched or clipped viewport.

      • The 3440 x 1440 resolution is more demanding than 2560 x 1440. If your card has less VRAM you'll probably see a big frame rate drop.

        Thanks for the info.
        I pretty much use my PC to play World of Warcraft, coding, web browsing, watching videos. Seems like 21:9 might be a better ratio for me perhaps. Appreciate your reply!

          absolutely. my wife has the 21:9 and i got the 16:9 and im jealous of her WoW UI and how much crap she can put on her screen without feeling likes its overdone.

          programming is obviously also going to be a big plus with the 21:9, unless you already have a second monitor.

    i got a rx 580 4gb so i wont buy this one, thanks.

    •  

      Actually you should be fine even with 4GB VRAM. The memory isn't the limiting factor for you, moreso the core clocks of your GPU.

  •  

    Do you think I'd have much luck gaming @ 144hz on SLI'd 780ti? Tempting!

    • +2 votes

      I have a 780 ti and although it's fine at 1080p for most games, I would still consider upgrading to the 10xx series to maintain 144hz at 2560x1440

      • +1 vote

        Thanks friend, I thought so.
        Yeah, I'm hoping the 1080ti will drop to the 600 mark on release of the new models then it's time to upgrade I believe!

    •  

      man you can do anything anytime with that sli, as long as you pay your energy bill on time

  •  

    no G-Sync?

    •  

      ASUS do make a few, ASUS ROG Swift PG27 series. $458.15 but it's only 27 inches

      •  

        that isn't gsync unfortunately

          Oops, linked wrong product. ASUS PG279Q is what I should've linked.

    •  

      So frustrating that decent g-sync monitors are so hard to find at a decent price. They always seem to be a lot more expensive than the freesync alternative. Is the thinking that the nvidia people are happy to pay more for their video cards, they will be happy to pay more for g-sync?!

      •  

        I believe G-sync requires proprietary hardware so monitor manufacturers pass this cost onto the consumer.

        So yes, but by design (thanks to nvidia).

        I could also be completely wrong.

        •  

          First sentence is correct, There is a special chip called an FPGA inside the monitor that talks to the video card that does the syncing. This little chip is what drives the prices up.

    i just bought this monitor, don't really need it but bought anyway because I am stupid…

      Give it to me - if you see it every day it will just remind you how stupid you are.
      I know, I know, I'm a great guy for doing you such a favour.

        ah I am so tired of being stupid, you are very nice man! ozbargain god bless you!

      •  

        On further thought (and with slight risk of jeopardising the receipt of my nice new monitor) I must say that giving it to me be no use. I would probably not be able to resist the urge to contact you every day to tell you how stupid you are for giving it to me…

      We don’t really need anything other than water and basic sustenance. Everything else is in the same bucket: simple clothes, housing, transport, 32 inch monitor, lamborghini.

      There should be some kind of OzB Award for this kind of thinking. Well done sir, we salute you!!!

  •  

    Seems like a very decent price given the specs, is there any reason for me not to buy it at this price?

    Running a 1080GTX and usually play FPS games. I know gsync would be better, but it’s rare to see one around the $600 mark.
