I guess ill stick to 27" monitors. Naisip ko rin na baka mahirap makita lahat if its 32inches and i read somewhere na pareho lang pixel density ng 1080p 24" at 1440p 32" so i might be sacrificing sharpness and clarity for a bigger screen.
Usually for 1440p, recommended ang 27-inch monitor because it gives good pixel density and sharp looking fonts when you are seated close to the monitor like at a desk. But if you are seated farther away like reclining on your chair or you have a deep desk, then a 32-inch monitor will provide the same benefit. Yung maganda din sa 32-inch screen is you don't need to lean forward from your reclining position just to read text because the fonts are still readable.
Ill be upgrading to a 2nd hand 1070ti once i get a monitor. Plan ko ilower nalang muna yung settings to get high framerates.
Yung GTX 1070 should be fine for 1440p gaming and with Apex Legends kaya naman ang 70 fps - 90 fps framerate at 1440p. I don't recommend upgrading to GTX 1070 Ti kasi parang maliit yata ang jump from GTX 1070. Mas sulit kung ang next GPU upgrade mo is at least RTX 2060 or if budget is willing, RTX 2070 or 2nd hand GTX 1080 Ti.
Regarding TN panels. I dont think i can live with the viewing angles. Although primarily for FPS ko gagamitin, baka magswitch ako entirely to a traditional desk setup if magustuhan ko yung visual upgrade ng 1440p. If mangyari yun, i need to be able to play in a slouching position for comfort.
Unfortunately weakness ng TN panel ang viewing angles, especially when viewing the screen from above or below. Pero yung side-to-side viewing angles niya are passable as long as centered ka parin sa screen. If you are seated farther away but centered ang view mo, hindi na noticeable ang off-angle color shift ng TN panel. Yun lang mas nagiging conscious ka sa seating position mo kasi you want to be viewing the screen straight on hehe...
Keep in mind na yung HKC MG271Q and Gamdias Atlas DHD-323C are curved monitors, so may sweet spot din sila when it comes to viewing distance. You want to be close enough para yung screen will fill-up your field of view and give a sense of depth to the image. At the same time you also want to be far enough na hindi hirap ang peripheral vision mo keeping track of objects near the edges of the screen.
Sana walang ghosting sa HKC. Medyo kulang yung discussion sa mga reviews available online kasi. Pero so far im leaning towards the HKC because of the price.
Yung ghosting or smearing usually makikita mo yan when doing quick side-to-side movement with a dark object on a lighter background. Mas nagiging noticeable siya at low refresh rates (like around 50Hz - 70Hz) kasi yung pixels ng VA panel bumabagal din the lower the refresh rate. If you keep your monitor's refresh rate high (like around 100Hz - 144Hz) then almost hindi na noticeable ang ghosting kasi mas-mabilis mag transition ang pixels. Yung suggestion ko when using FreeSync / G-Sync on a VA gaming monitor is try to keep your framerate high para maintained din ang high refresh rate ng panel.
I think most VA gaming monitors now like HKC and Gamdias are using Samsung SVA panels which are decently fast and hindi masyado prone to ghosting. Although case-to-case basis parin kasi some monitors have better overdrive circuitry than others. You have to check for reviews and user feedback to see which monitor has less visible ghosting. In real world use mahirap din mapansin ang ghosting sa VA panel kung mataas ang refresh rate like 144Hz. Pero once you see it sometimes mahirap din "unsee" kasi yung eyes mo naturally follow the smeary trail. So depende din sayo kung magiging bothered ka by the ghosting or hindi naman noticeable to the point na ini-ignore mo nalang when gaming :-)
