32inch 1080p monitors are only good for minecraft
I get that it's fairly cheap, but I seriously would be against a 31.5" monitor at 1080p. It's gonna look pretty nasty if you sit close to the screen. I had a 25" 1080p 240hz and it looked awful after switching to 1440p.
1080p at this size is pointless. 23 inch for 1080p. Great Hz though but no g sync/free sync
What size is the sweetspot for a bit of 1440 and 1080 then? I think I'll be doing mostly 1080

for 1080p max 27 inch but i would already step into 1440p on that one
Arghhhh almost fell for it untill I saw FHD
id say hd max 24". 1440p 27-32" 3440x1440 34-35" 3840-1600 38-40" 4k 42"+

Would 1080 look decent on a 27"? that's the max size I have room for

It wouldn't be great, if you can stretch to a 1440 27" panel that would be ideal, Are you looking at 144hz or lower?

Cheapest 27" 144 monitor on the market at the moment is 1440p (ebuyer eg)
Agree to all the above, 1080p is not going to look great at all at this size. I'd avoid.
Liking the super-fast refresh rate- don't see many 144GHz panels, regardless of resolution
Pay the extra and get a real gaming monitor

1440P, 1MS, 155 hz and TN which is better for gaming than VA

That is a good monitor for the money. Would rather get that than a 27" 1080.

VA is a better sweet spot for gaming than TN imo.

I've switched to a TN (Acer Predator XB241YU) from a VA (MSI MAG241C) yesterday and the difference in display quality, colours and viewing angles is more significant than the difference in response times.

Unless you have reflexes as fast as spiderman, a VA will be a better option for games. Colors, contrast and overall image quality looks much better on a VA panel.

Also, with higher refresh rates monitor, people usually dont discuss that you need a graphics card that can drive 144Hz or 240Hz. Unless you are spending upwards of £500 on a graphics card you wont be able to play any recent games at ultra at 1080p at 144fps, unless you are playing overwatch.

I agree you need a good GPU for the higher FPS with 144 and beyond

But honestly the Dell monitor I linked which is a TN panel is well better than a VA monitor

VA is jack of all master of none. IPS is the best colours but can suffer light bleed and slower response times, with ghosting. The VA panel attempted to address this but fail between the TN and IPS and has its own issues.

The TN is technology is old, but Dell have tweaked this so well on this monitor and its honesty as good as a VA if not better and doesn't suffer from the VA shortfalls

I dont believe a TN can ever beat a VA except for response time.
In picture quality and contrast a VA will always be better. IPS will always be best if you need color accuracy and hence is good for content editors.

Anyway for FHD 32" is just too big and text will look pixelated and games blurry. 27" and above you need 1440p. Maybe max 27" for FHD not more.

Going slightly of the OP topic but read the reviews of the Dell TN panel I suggested

pcmonitors.info/rev…gf/

tomshardware.com/uk/…tml

There is much to be said about this TN panel and does compare very well to VA panels without the shortfalls of VA

I use a standard 24" IPS panels for work and text, had a VA panel for gaming and it wasn't great and ended up with a Dell TN panel for gaming @ high FPS and don't notice the difference between picture and colours

It's only when I use my 5K iMac than I notice the grain and wasted out colours, but for gaming TN still my fav option

That review is for a £380 monitor and even then it does not have the contrast and hence missing the pop in visual quality.

Cheap TN Panels wont have anywhere near the quality of a premium calibrated TN panel but VA will work fine out of the box coz of the native higher contrast which makes images pop in games.

As I said before, if you have a very fast response time in games like spiderman, then you will miss TN, else you will love the better picture quality that comes with VA. I play on my VA TV and it has made no difference to my multiplayer scores so possibly I am not as fast as you

Initially anything over 60hz but then I got a gfx card that can do 1440p really well so wanted the best panel to make use of it.

Honestly the EG 27" on ebuyer is really good value for money so it has my vote if you're not too fussed about the TN panel, and the price is generally good enough to warrant it as IPS/VA usually cost at least £100 more.
