Hi everyone im looking for some advice my current monitor an ASUS VH222H is starting to show its age and im looking for a replacement.
Ideally im looking for something a larger maybe from 24" upto 32" and have a budget upto £250 which i know isnt a lot which is why im looking for advice.I mainly play Football Manager and just do general pc stuff but i would like to be able to play games like Call of Duty etc in the future
The AOC 24G2U has been recommended to me and i havent seen a bad review about it yet but have been looking at the 27inch version and was wondering if anyone has any experience of them and if my GPU will be ok to use with it.

My current setup is

MSI B450 TOMAHAWK
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Sapphire Radeon RX480 4GB

Any advice gratefully received
 
go bigger its lovely if you keep the res at 1080p as the following monitors are - it works the same no matter the size of screen, only if you decide to go to 1440p will you see lower frame rates and start considering a new GPU. I had your GPU and a 1440 AOC screen for 4 months and its was OK but I got a new GPU to drive it in the end - at 1080p your still fine with that 480.

£169 - slower response at 5ms but fine for your usage I would think


or more gamer focused and possibly overkill

£220

Resolution is what determines what fits on a screen, so if you're going for a large screen because you want to display more stuff (e.g. see more of a website at once) you'll need to go for a higher resolution too. A larger screen at the same resolution will just display the same picture but larger.

The RX 480 supports DisplayPort 1.3 and HDMI 2.0 so it'll display properly on any screen you throw at it.

Freesync is worth having but I wouldn't be overly bothered about high refresh rates. They are an improvement and nice to have, but a lot of games require you to burn a lot of electricity to run that fast (and splash the cash for hardware capable of doing so).
