Been looking for a new monitor, preferably a 4k monitor at 120/144hz that's 27 inches. Any suggestions?

4k 144hz monitors are rare it's new territory for tech most 4k monitor do 60hz , you will be looking at£500 and above for 4k 144hz

How about 1440p?
You won't get 4k at 120fps on hdmi 2.0 it's only on 2.1 which I believe isn't available on monitors yet. Also there are very few games which are actually 120fps 99% games will only be 60fps

Any recommendations?


No sorry plenty on the market thoghe and monitors dont really need 4k inless you go for 32 inch ,1080 and 1440 are fine for monitors depending on size

Thanks, do you think it'll be worth getting a monitor to that spec? I'm not sure Ps5 will be able to utilise it for all games. Do you think I could get away with getting one 144hz monitor at 1080p and one 60hz monitor at 4k? Always wanted a double monitor set up
65inch 4k TV ofc, its a console remember!

Also why does someone want 2 monitors for a console? How does that work?

Both wouldn't be used for console at the same time, just thought they look kinda cool and the dual monitors will be used while working or while gaming with the other monitor being used as a TV. Already got a 55 inch 4k downstairs but wanted something in my room too!

Cheers, any recommendations?


Do you want TN, VA or IPS panel? If you are not sure then I would suggest doing some basic reading on the advantages of each

Read VA panels are probably the best for middle ground? TN is for serious gamers but that's not me. That's what I've read anyways.

What about ultrawide?

Really wanted an ultrawide but thought it might be out of budget, wanted to spend around 500/550 max on both monitors.

You can purchase an ultrawide but AFAIK the new consoles won't support that resolution. We have one and it is great for work and PC gaming.

Read that it's likely that Ps5 will support 21:9 but got to wait and see I guess
