I need to purchase a new dual monitor setup. I work from home and the primary use will be work. However, I also will be playing games at times as well. I'm planning on getting either the RX-580 or GTX-1660 GPU for a new build I'm working on. I do not have my heart set on either one, but the GTX-1660 seems like the best balance of price, performance and power usage.
Here are my monitor requirements. I'm trying to stick to an IPS display as I'm assuming it will be a better option for work than a TN panel.
Here are my requirements: 22 - 25" / Vesa mount / IPS? / 1920 x 1080 display
Nice to have: Thin bezels (especially on the sides) / Speakers / Display port - Assuming this would be needed if I get an Nvidia card and the monitor supports Freesynch
Will I be disappointed if I get a non-gaming monitor with a 60hz refresh rate and 5ms response time? I've found a couple of monitors that almost fit the bill. However, they have AMD Freesynch but do not have a display port input. I'm assuming I would not get much benefit if using the GTX-1660.
I could also go with a standard IPS monitor such as the Dell U2417H
Any suggestions/input/comments/name-calling are all appreciated. Thanks!
