27" 1440p Monitor on a Budget?

Hey everyone,
just wondering if anyone on here with perhaps more knowledge could point me in the direction of a decent 27" monitor?

will mainly used for browsing and gaming (non competitive), occasional family photo editing.

looking for something IPS I think? ideally with speakers for casual use (I use my TV for PC gaming mostly, sometimes headphones)

currently rocking a 24" 1080p at 60hz and feel like Im a little behind the times.

System is running Ryzen 5 with 1070ti, likely upgrading to the new RTX 3070/80 series or big Navi depending whats best.

budget is key, so would like the best "bang for buck"

thanks!

Keep an eye on HKUD. Quite a few around at the moment. I aim for the bigger manufacturers (Dell, HP etc)

That monitor you just bought is AMD freesync yet you have a nvidia GPU and wanting the newer nvidia GPU which is G-sync ...

to get the best out of you GPU look for a G-sync monitor ( all tho these can be more expensive than the freesync ones )
or
AMD are bring out their new line up of GPU's soon which should work just fine with the monitor you have just gotten..

I thought NVidia cards now also work with Freesync though G-Sync is likley better.

Nvidia is now compatible with freesync

Oops my bad , ignore me , move on , nothing to see :blush:
From what I've read NVidia card should still be technically a better option with a proper G-Sync monitor but would anybody notice?

I bought a 55" OLED LG B9 as upgrade for my ASUS ROG Swift 1440p/165Hz G-Sync because the TV does G-Sync with my 2080Ti. Smooth as silk. Will even manage 4k/120 with the HDMI 2.1 on 3000 series cards

Thing is , i should of know this !! ( i fact i do know this lol )
I have a sammy TV and im wanting a new card to take advantage of the freesync 1440p 120hz option which is only available on the nvidia 2000 or 3000 cards ....

just didn't cross my mind , when i wrote that post ....

Monitor arrived today, very pleased with it so far, yet to try it on gaming but the higher res/refresh and a bit more screen real estate is very noticable :D
had to order a DP cable though as only HDMI came in the box and I cant enable G-sync without it.
