1080p, but this is still cheap as muck for 144hz & 27". They're normally over £250. You won't get it cheaper especially since Brexit. Freesync compatible and has a 1ms response time.

If you want a gaming monitor for CSGO, Overwatch, Rocket League or smth and don't want to pay dumb money then this is the one. 14 left.

Cheap cheap cheap. Though I still love my BenQ xl2430t better for 144hz. But so tempted to get this and upgrade my secondary 60hz one..

Just bought one, thank you for posting.
I thought I'm gonna sell my GTX 1060 6GB and get an RX 580, but it looks like AMD dropped the RX 500 series driver support for Windows 8.1 users. ( Supports Win7 and Win10 only)
Can I use the RX 400 series drivers, will that work, or should I get a used RX 480?
Or Windows 10 upgrade with assistive technologies turned on?

Go for the RX580 unless you can find a cheaper RX480. Upgrade to windows 10 only cost £3.00 or less

idk if you can get used rx480s for cheap right now because of the ethereum cryptocurrency mining craze. on ebay they are going for £300 used even more than they were retailed.

if you want to upgrade to windows 10 though you can just get a scrap key that has the COA sticker included.

probably sold out. everyone is buying them to mine ethereum coins (like bitcoin). rx 570 and 580. it's a thing right now.

you should just keep your 1060. 580 is a sidegrade and adaptive sync isn't all that.

If your not going to use freesync i wouldn't even bother buying this monitor. You have a nvidia card better looking for deals on a gsync monitor if you dont intend to switch cards.

Keep hold of your 1060 and wait for the inevitable mining crash, then pickup a cheap 480/580 second hand. Ebay will be flooded with them soon enough.

I just want 144Hz, tried it before and its amazing, buttersmooth. Screen tearing doesn't really bother me, the only thing annoys me is microstutter.
The idea was to sell the 1060 and get a good deal on the RX 580, about same performance and good enough for 1080p and I could use freesync, but no driver support for my OS.

Yeah I'll keep my Nvidia card for now. Thank you for your suggestions.


Wow what a bargain, although you will get people moan about 1080p at 27" , personally I love the high frame rates, although I have g-sync to help.

Price has gone up a tenner
