Are there any alternatives that are roughly no more than this?

Thanks.

I have that monitor and it's great...however...

1) I would only buy it if you have an nVidia graphics card - there is an AMD Freesync version which is about £170 cheaper for exactly the same specs, but supports AMDs FreeSync instead of nVidia's G-Sync (the technology which removes screen tearing in games by lining up the refresh with new frames, rather than a fixed refresh rate like 60Hz / 144Hz)
2) There are now IPS versions of this monitor (e.g. PG279Q) which have a better quality screen - the colours on an IPS panel are much better

I hope that helps!

Thanks man, do you have any knowledge or experience with monitors? I'm useless, I feel the one I chose may be the best option for me?
