    Hey guys,

    I've spent the last couple of days trying to figure out which is the best 32" (or 31.5), 1440p, 144+hz monitor to buy. Would love a bit of input from overclockers! There are just so many options these days...

    So far I'm looking at
    Samsung CHG70
    Dell S3220DGF
    LG 31.5inch 32GK850F-B
    Samsung JG54
    AOC CQ32G2E

    Most of these are out of stock however. I'll mainly be using the monitor for competitive fps gaming (CS:GO, Overwatch and maybe Valarant once it comes out).

    Still trying to decide b/w curved and not.

    Any other input would be much appreciated. Cheers!

    Does it have to be 32"? Seems the manufacturers are throwing their best at 27"

    Stuff like LG 27GL850 and ASUS VG27AQ.

    I'll be upgrading from a 120hz 27" monitor (It only has DVI and new computer will only have Display port and HDMI therfore can't run current monitor above 60hz on new computer). So I figure if im going to justify the upgrade I have to at least go bigger...

    If you going bigger but same resolution its a downgrade in a lot of peoples books (lower PPI).

    But each to own, here is some good choices.

    I totally agree, my old monitors were only 1080p, I want 1440p, 32 inch, 144+ hz for new monitor. Thanks for the link!

    No worries, the C32HG70 sounds pretty awesome.. Va panel so nice native contrast, gets quite bright (500+ nits) & high gamut.. HDR will look nice on it!

    Seem a bit of a gamble on the black uniformity though.

    I did re-read your first post and you mention competitive gaming. VA has come a long way but you would ideally want TN followed by IPS for competitive. And depending how serious you are 32" is too big. Is a reason pro's use 24" 1080p for max FPS & minimal eye movement.. also why some even run 4:3 resolutions on them. Just something to consider. However if your like me and enjoy those games but dont have to get into the high tiers to enjoy, the VA 32" be fine, and even some pro's could do just fine on them but they might do 5% better on the smaller TNs and they willing to sacrifice IQ etc for that.

    Yeh I know what you mean re: smaller screens and resolution... but I'm not trying to go pro, that opportunity has long past lol. I'm leaning towards MSI 32" Optix Curved Gaming Monitor WQHD MAG322CQRV now I think. Thanks for your input mate!

    Lol now im actually thinking of waiting for the Samsung Odyssey g7 to be released. It looks to be quite a step of from anything currently on the market with 32", 240hz, 1ms, 1440p and HDR600 etc.

    Only difference between CHG70 and Odyssey G7 is 240Hz, 1000R curvature(vs 144Hz, 1800R curvature), and you'll need RTX3080Ti performance level GPU to make the most out of 240Hz @ 1440p cos even RTX2080Ti and 9900KS can only get ~140fps average iirc(& that's without RTX) on CoD MP @ 1440p which isn't that demanding compared to some other games like Control or Borderlands 3.

    i.e. if you are planning to get 3080Ti then wait for Odyssey G7, otherwise just get CHG70 now imo.

    I ended up getting a Dell S3220DGF 32" monitor for just under $600 from an ebay deal but I have to wait for the end of next month for it to be delivered... What is your opinion on that monitor vs the CHG70? Is it worth it for the extra ~$150 for the better HDR and Black Frame Insertion? Is BFI really that good for FPS shooters? For comparison I'm coming from a VG278H 120hz 27" Asus monitor which uses Lightstrobe for games... Will the S3220DGF at least be as crisp for movement and response time as that monitor?

    Cheers mate :)

    Not sure, cos I've never used Dell S3220DGF :)
    But I love the color/image quality on Samsung QLEDs(i had few), and that's the main reason I bought it.

    Hey Coolio, I was in exact same boat - after a 32 inch 16:9 monitor to fit my desk and was eyeing the dell but its 999 on dell website. Can I ask which deal you used?
    Otherwise I was gonna wait until the Odessey or settle for its predecessor 32inch

    Good choice with the Dell S3220DGF, I got one for 40% off when Dell had a sale on. Excellent monitor the only issue I found is that I had to modify the Freesync range to prevent flickering with G-sync turned on. Haven't had any issues with it since, response time is great for shooters and fantastic for movies. The lower PPI is noticeable though when I had my 27" 1440p side by side with it. But I'm used to it now after having it for a few months.

    I hassled the people at the Dell ebay store. The screen was out of stock but they said that I could purchase it and wait till mid May for it to be shipped. I was able to use a 20% off ebay coupon to bring the price down to 599.20. Here is the link: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dell-32...0DGF-QHD-165Hz-DisplayPort-HDMI-/392645492140 Unfortunately the 20% coupon has expired :(
