    I'm only running a 970 with i5 6600K, and don't do anything extreme, just the odd game (Project Reality ;) , PUBG, and not much else), movies, TV and Excel :confused:

    I'm looking for at least 24", 1080p will probably be sufficient, G-sync might be overkill, and no idea what refresh rate or mhz.

    As you can see, I'm a bit ignorant of such matters, hence my post.

    Any suggestions?

    What do you have now and what's your budget?

    Budget is the deciding factor

    Currently using an old 22" 1080p, but need a dual monitor set up for work, so figured it would become the secondary monitor, and the new 24" would be the primary. Looking to spend as little as possible, but still be decent for mediocre gaming.

    Just wondering what I should be looking for. 1080p good enough for this size? mHz? Refresh rate? Panel type? G-sync?

    If you can, try find your way to Scorptec or PLE, they may have them on display for you to check them out in person to see if the resolution differences matter to you

    with a GTX970 you won't be going past 1080p with out dropping a heap of settings
    g-sync is going to add a decent cost to any monitor you buy, probably not needed for your set up but once you have it its hard to go back
    60 - 100hz is probably where you going to land for hz/refreash rate, 970 might start to struggle pushing past that

    its hard to recommend something when you say as little as possible... you can get a 24" 144hz g-sync monitor for $550 but i don't know if thats too much.
