I'm torn between these two monitor. Which one is better?

I'm looking at this one from asus:

And this one from BenQ:

Well the higher resolution is more tasking on the GPU driving it especially in gaming. I like the Asus.

What gfx card and cpu do you have.

1440p gaming is pretty demanding especially at max/ultra game settings. It's nice to have the real estate for desktop work, though.

I would recommend the asus 27" 1440p over the benq 27" 1080p have a look at the link as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vt0CJcUi4w

And with the gtx 780 you will be perfectly fine


What about BENQ's 120hz refresh rate? Would that make it any better than a 2550x1440?

Human eyesight is about average 30hz some people a little higher but after you reach 60Hz nobody sees the difference.

If you go 120hz your going to be limited to a tn panel at 1080p and if your not super competitive i would go the 1440p which the asus PLS panel smokes tn in every way as far as colors and viewing angels

I personally wouldnt say people dont see a difference but as for me ill take resolution over 120hz and since im not to competitive 60fps is smooth enough for me

And most people are watching this on monitors with 60Hz refresh rate and do not see any flicker or blinking.
