Why do you need to give it up, use both

Don't have the horsepower to run both smoothly
What did you upgrade from? Don't think I could go down from IPS, even 6bit+FRC.

Integrated graphics can push a 4K monitor smoothly, just so long as it's used. That's more pixels than 2 x 2560x1440 monitors.

Problems arise when you don't have GPU acceleration (like in a VM, bleugh) but that's a software problem you should fix.

Run the one you are going to use for the most graphical intensive uses off the graphics card and the other off the integrated GPU in the CPU and you should be fine

Running two, or even three, monitors in 2D i.e. for normal Windows and apps use is not demanding at all and probably even possible on modern integrated graphics.

For gaming it would be demanding for sure but so few games support multi-monitor anyway I wouldn't bother using it for that, but might boost your productivity once you can get used to using more than one screen....

BTW there is already a thread for this monitor from Amazon here: hotukdeals.com/dea…752 so worth taking a look as it links to review and more info too.

1440p on a 32" screen is roughly the same as 24" 1080p. You will have a lager screen but lose the sharpness that the 27" 1440p offers.
Great for the money, but some reviews are bit off-putting, ghosting, dead pixels (inevitable), shoddy finishing.. Still quite tempted thougj
Ta, was in market for a new monitor.
Ghosting is pretty bad for gaming. Anyone coming from a TN or an IPS that doesn't ghost too much will notice.
Had 2 delivered yesterday both have to go back as they where delivered with dead and stuck pixels 👎

Just use one for 3D and both for 2D?
Guys I bought mine from amazon fit same reason about quality. Mine was perfect. Still need to adjust the settings but well worth the money.
Heat for good price..shame its only 144hz
Great for the money

Got one from overclockers and no issues. Took a gamble as it replaced a 27" IPS 1440p, but after changing the colour settings etc I'm happy.
I got one from Amazon a couple of days ago, but it's going back. When displaying static content, it looks incredible. The blacks in particular put any IPS panel I've ever used to shame. Unfortunately, its motion handling is very weak, especially in darker scenes. There's tons of ghosting during fast movement. It actually made me feel quite ill. For desktop use it'd be absolutely fine, but I'd think twice if you're planning on using it as a gaming monitor. It's not suited to it at all.

I also wouldn't get this as a gaming monitor. This was my original intention. Played a few games with lighter backgrounds/scenes and it seemed to handle them OK. However, switching to games with dark backgrounds/scenes, the ghosting on this monitor is horrendous. Such a shame as it was looking like a really great monitor, packed full of features for the price. I am returning mine.

Bottom line - I would avoid this monitor if you plan to use it for gaming.

Personally I would (and am) still give this monitor a try, especially from Amazon as you can be assured of trouble free returns if it really is that bad.

I have had both TVs (still own and use it actually) and monitors that have bad ghosting in the past and it really never bothered me that much TBH. I found that once I got used to it, it was actually pretty easy to 'tune it out' and it didn't really spoil my experience of the monitor/tv that much. With the TV, I think it is more that it has to warm up as the ghosting gets significantly less after about 20-30 minutes use.

This is something worth trying with this monitor too for those with ghosting issues, it is known that some screens need to get up to operating temperature for best results, that is why you aren't supposed to calibrate them the second you switch them on either. Adjusting the overdrive may also help.

Personally, I'd just be pretty happy at this stage is I could get my hands on one at all! Amazon were supposed to deliver it Tuesday but completely bodged it and despite promising each day since I would get it, it ultimately got marked as "undeliverable" (guessing they broke it in transit) and is in process of being returned to Amazon. They processed another order for me at £0 so I don't have to wait for the original to get returned/refunded but now won't have it till Tuesday (at best)....

Got mine a couple of days ago. I'm really happy to so far. Sharper than my 1080p 24" ips monitor it replaced. Can't get to it show freesync, that is something I'll have to work out! (got amd r280 and latest monitor drivers). Overall a bargain for the money.

Your card doesn't support FreeSync, unfortunately. The 270(X) and 280(X) were rebrands of older cards (the 7950 in your case), so miss out despite cards both above and below them in the 200 range supporting it (since they used brand new GPUs).

Oh, thanks for letting me know. Saved me a load of time googling it!
Freesync is the way forward.

After playing at 1080p on a 1070, v sync couldn't cope and the screen tearing was really bad.

G sync monitors are horribly over priced, looking a Vega card now or even Rx 580.
Bargin so heat from me. Its just too bad this isn't an ips panel otherwise I would have bought this to replace my current monitor
excellent feature!
Low refresh rate but still a very good price for owners of AMD GPUs.

32" is effing gigantic, even for 1440p. I think 27" is a good upper limit for 1440p.

Yeah, it was better than without, but still noticeable.

Im tempted to put the GPU money towards the Switch now aha.

Strange as I don't think I've ever really seen tearing with v-sync. My monitor is absolutely terrible without it.

I only watched Youtube videos on mine before I boxed it back up, but the ghosting was a lot less noticeable there. The black levels are also really, really good, which is something that'd be good for movies. Though it's also in darker scenes where the ghosting is at its worst, so it's kind of a double-edged sword.
I have one of these. Great monitor. Good for games and general use too.
