Looking at getting a gaming monitor with 1ms and just wondering, is it possible to have my current monitor which is 2560x1440 and a gaming monitor which will likely be 1920x1080, I'm not too sure what to do with as there's not many good options for my price range which is £200 so any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Well, it'll be okay in terms of your PC being able to do that.
It'll be a little off putting going from the 4k res to the 1080, your mouse will appear much bigger and images will as well.
But, its something you can get used to. And if you're using them for primarily independent things, it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

Honest opinion would be save up to get a matching monitor, or at least something closer to the 4k resolution on that monitor.

Thanks for your reply, Been looking at the HP 27xq but unsure whether that is a good choice.

Yes, that is a very high quality 2k monitor.
I bought an Aopen 2k/1ms and wished every day I bought that HP instead, lol.

You think the HP is a good choice because the MSI ones looking pretty good, it's a hard decision

I purchased this monitor for my new setup and it blows the monitor beside it (1080p) straight out of the water. The difference amazes me because I thought this other monitor was decent before this one arrived. I purchased a 27" curved msi monitor that can be found here:

pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor/ Pick one that is within your price range and pretty


My main monitor: Haven't had any issues nor do I see any problems with it. I'll be purchasing another one once my birthday is closer.
