So i decided to self-indulge myself and got new CPU after all, although i bought my current rig (X99, i7 6850k 6-core CPU, 64GB DDR4 RAM, 2x GTX 1080, etc...) in its entirety just about year ago. The choice fell on i9 in the end, at the expense of Threadripper, more specifically 14-core i9 7940x....
I got it alongside the new mobo obviously, Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 7, and on top of these superior water cooling solution compared my current one (Alphacool Eisbaer 360, to replace Corsair H105 240mm AiO) and finally, one more M2 drive, Samsung 960 EVO 512GB.
Now, i need one more thing, or at least i want one more thing, LCD display. Currently running oldish HP ZR24w, which has like 7 or 8 years. Its 24inch 1920x1200 display, so obviously i want more. However, doing some preliminary research, i am finding out its incredibly difficult to choose right monitor, cause there is always need for some compromise. There are few, i would like based on their parameters, but they are either more expensive than i am willing to pay, like 32 inch 4K LG32UD99, or are riddled with backlight bleed and other issues, like 27 inch 1440p Asus PG279Q...
Currently, i am looking at following bunch of options, each one has its pros and cons. All of them IPS indeed:
Dell U2715H - 27 inch 1440p, has good reputation, its cheap, the cheapest option actually, 450 EUROs only.
Dell UP2716D - 27 inch 1440p, has wide gamut, so its sort of profi monitor. It goes for 625 EUROs over here, but apparently, has some screen uniformity/BLB issues.
Dell U2718Q - 27 inch 4K, has HDR too, although just the Dell "fake" one. 680 EUROs, not many reviews, but apparently worse color reproduction and lower overall quality than UP2716D.
EIZO EV2750 - 27 inch 1440p, probably better overall quality than DELLs, but no wide gamut (which i dont really need), but more expensive, 750 EUROs.
BENQ PD3200U - 32 inch 4K - this screen size and resolution was initially my choice, as i want it mostly for work with CAD apps and TV show watching, but now i am hesitating, cause the better screens of this size are above 1000 EUROs. BenQ is decent, but i am not really convinced about it. The EIZO mentioned above has definitely higher quality, the price is the same, so its a toss up between higher quality or bigger size. My biggest problem though its the size of the screen, i dont really have big enough desk. If i would put it on it, with its 74cm width, its left side would be like 5cm from my computer case (which i have on the desk too and dont want to put it on floor cause of dust, neither its really an option anyway due to other factors) and then the right side would be again like 5cm from the edge of the desk.
EIZO FORIS FS2735 - 27 inch 1440p, 144Hz for 1050 EUROs. Apparently 144 Hz is da shit, something you once try and never want to go back to 60Hz. Even on desktop. I have no clue, but it kinda sounds good, and its overall the EIZO quality, so if it was not for the high price, this would be my choice i guess... even without 4K. But i just dont know, the price is steep and if dont care about games that much, i may just get away with the aforementioned EV2750, which i guess would provide the same experience bar the high refresh rate. At which point i get to square one, cause i can get 32inch BenQ at the price of EV2750..... decisions, decisions....
If you took your time to actually read it and have any clue about this stuff, please give some advice!
