I am looking for a new PC monitor for gaming. Narrowed it down to the ASUS VG248QE and the ASUS VG278HE. I would prefer the bigger screen because I watch a lot of live streams, shows, movies, etc. I hear 27" 1080p is not preferred due to the lower amount of PPI. Can someone please confirm? Is it really that noticeable? I sit a good 2-2.5 feet from my monitor. Would it just be better to go for the 24" and not see the pixels? Looking for advice. Money is not an issue so if the 27" is not even that bad, I will certainly buy it. I play a lot of counter strike and I would love the 144hz refresh rate and not have to worry about applying vsync in every game. Need recommendations. Thank you.

What are your PC specs? A 27 inch isn't bad if you have decent specs to apply a good amount of AA/Supersampling.

Pretty decent, I'd be tempted personally to go for the 144Hz panel, as in most games you'll be looking at over the 60Hz that monitor has.

i couldnt imagine playing counter strike with a 27 inch screen. You'll probably be moving your head and eyes way too much for it to be comfortable.

24" is ideal for 1080p gaming, I have the VG248QE and its a very good monitor, only requires some color calibration. At that distance the 24" screen is good, but 27" will be good as well. 27" is more suited for 1440p resolutions due to pixel density per mm.

Alright sound good, is 1080p pixel density on a 27" really that bad though? As people say it is? Some people say it is fine and other say it's not good.

Its not bad~ just consider that there are 50" 1080p TVs and still look good.
