Hello im on the market for a new 2 new monitors. But for now im only buying 1. 27" 1440p

The screen in mind is the ASUS PB278Q. I wil be using this for gaming and watching movies.

Atm i have a Benq xl2411t 120 hz as main monitor for games and a samsung for my TV series and movies. But will it have big downside i will go down to 60hz and 5 ms?

Another thing. I have seen asus soon release G-SYNC where this monitor will become TN panel and with 120hz..

So should what should i buy? 2 of these, or just 1 of this current model as 2nd monitor and buy the next TN model for my gaming monitor?

Btw. I would like the 2 monitors looks good next to each other.. Atm my monitor setup look like shit. BenQ model next to this averge Samsung. Completely diffrent design.

Hope you guys can help me picking the two monitors for my needs.

If are are ready to wait, then I say you should wait for the g-sync monitor.
Having 60hz monitor with 5 ms is only a downside if you are a competitive gamer, or else it won't be.

Personally, I would get two QNIX QX2710 Evolution II's http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BUI44US. They are the best 27" 1440p IPS panel monitors you can get for the money.

They are Samsung PLS panels with a great picture quality. The only downside they have is that you can only use a DVI-D connection. They can also be overclocked to over 100Hz which is a huge plus!

Do you know if they design are the same? The current model vs the G-sync monitor?

-Do you think the current model will fall in Price when G-sync is released?

You can expect a bit of a different design, and I don't think the current model price will drop down as G-sync won't be cheap. Amd also is going to realse a g-sync technology named as "freesync" which will work on both Nvidia and amd gpu

You are right, the design is a bit different. The PG model has the advantage with the super narrow bezel, where the PB model is a bit wide.

Guess i gotta buy 1 of each...

PB for movies and TV series and the PG for my games.

Thanks for the help :)
