Another hand-me-down from my previous machine. I'm not sure why PCPartPicker has this listed as "165hz" — my monitor is 144hz. Regardless, it's a great screen. IPS panel is a must for me as I love the richer colors, and G-Sync is fantastic for gaming as well. Great monitor. It was pricey when I bought it a couple of years ago, but well worth the investment in my experience.

If you need higher resolution, higher refresh rate, solid build quality and gsync your options are limited but gnarly. I chose this over the competing monitors because of the design and color matching aspect but mostly the incredible solid metal built stand and understated screen tones. Also opted for the TN instead of the IPS model for the 1ms response time but mostly to avoid the luck of the draw process of getting an IPS panel with no/low IPS glow. Most panels used on similar models are purchased from the same manufacturer, so went for the best quality build/subjective appearance one. Also got lucky enough to have zero burned pixels and no backlight bleed so your mileage may vary.

The Acer monitor is one of the best purchases I've made these years.
1440 is a decent resolution to work with (and play too). It's definitely way sharper than 1080 so I don't feel the need to jump to 4k. On the other hand, if I would jump to 4k I wouldn't have that high framerate on the games.
High frequency monitors are a must on action games. It totally changed my experience on first person shooters, specially on Overwatch where the game runs at a really high framerate.
Build quality is awesome and looks great. It has a gamer aesthetic but it's not THAT flashy so I'm ok with it. Sometimes I wish the base of the monitor wouldn't be that wide, but oh well.
The only thing I'm wondering now if I should've picked an ultrawide instead.

Big upgrade here. I originally had an overclocked QNIX 1440p monitor attached to this rig. Possibly the most significant investment was moving to an Acer 1440p, 144hz, g-sync, IPS panel monitor in 2018. It was hugely expensive at the time, but also hugely worth it. There's nothing quite like running games at max settings, in 1440p, and seeing 100+ frames with g-sync activated. I'll never get tired of it.
