Can you help me please ;

Which are the best gsyngs monitors in prize of 400 and 700 euros ;

- - - Auto-Merged Double Post - - -

Also this Acer vga270up in the link which I saw you

Do you believe is good for gaming;
Are you looking for a G-Sync monitor (NVIDIA card to use G-sync), or Freesync (needs an AMD card)?

If you want freesync, that acer is fine. If you want G-sync, then you need a g-sync monitor (as I said earlier).

It is really difficult to help you with the spam-like posting habits. While you wait for responses from the community, you can search reviews on the monitors you come across to see how they work. Simply google the model name with the word review at the end. Typically you will find some out there. if not, you will need to hope someone here (or any other forum you posted this same question at) has the monitor.

Here is the monitor I have... Gsync, 144Hz+, IPS, 27" 2560x14440 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...2&cm_re=g-sync_monitor-_-24-011-082-_-Product

Not sure what that price is in your world, but, that is what I suggest if you have an NVIDIA GPU and looking for gsync.

A link for 'best gaming monitors'. See if these fit your needs - https://www.techradar.com/news/best-gaming-monitor
I have seen a lot of people uses your monitor can you tell me why most people have the same monitor as this you have??
It has been out for a couple of years I think? Not sure. If you really want to know, you are able to look it up and see.

When you buy it, obviously it would be new.

So many questions, but they matter so little in purchasing this product.
I don't know what to dO??

to buy this monitor which is very good or to wait to for new monitors in 2019?

my problem is that now I don't have monitor//.

because If I buy these monitor in 2019 will be new monitors with better technologies
I mean if I spend now 700 euros in 8 months will be new monitors at the same prize

for this reason I don't know what to do//.

if you were to position what you would do??
As I said earlier................IF YOU ARE READY, BUY NOW. There is always something better coming out 'next year'.
4. New monitors from all brands always come out.. if you are ready...buy now.

You do not have the budget to get HDR, Gsync/freesync, 2560x1440 IPS at 144Hz+ I don't believe. But look. HDR is the 'newest' tech that is out for monitors, but I also believe your GPU has to support HDR (as well as the game). Here is a read for you on that subject - https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/09/24/what-graphics-card-hdr-pc-games/.

We have no idea what your system specs are. Please create a signature with your system specs (CPU, RAM, Mobo, GPU, PSU, etc).

I have one 4770k in 4.5

Asus z87 deluxe

Coolermaster psu 1500

16 giga ram

Gtx 780

But as I told you I will buy one 1080 ti and new monitor like these you have

Look my problem is not the money

I can buy the dell alienware but my problem is if I spend now 700 and 1200 euros for one monitor the next year will come better monitors

For these reason I am thinking to buy one cheep monitor

I don't know what to do

To spend 1200 euros for one ultra wide 34 size like alienware or to buy this monitor that you told me ;

Or to wait in 2019 for new monitors like Acer x35 will come in 2019;

- - - Auto-Merged Double Post - - -

I gave you my specs from my system
There's always something new next year and the year after that and so on ..... so you can't base a decision on that.
Personally, I'd never spend that much on a monitor but that's me. I ususally get what's on sale maybe a year or two old. Not that much has changed
If I will buy alienware dell 34 ultra wide
Which Iove it so much will these monitor hold me for more 5 years;

The only problem with alienware that is not hdr and is not 200 mhz

The native is 100 and overclocking goes to 120
I mean the new monitors that will come will be ips gsyng with 200 mhz and hdr

- - - Auto-Merged Double Post - - -

I don't know what to do
Do you believe that the next hdr ultra eides gaming monitor that will come in 2019 will cost more than 1400 euros;

- - - Auto-Merged Double Post - - -

Do you know when Acer x35 will release;
I don't have a clue neither I nor anyone here can tell you the future. There were some reasonable choices on that page I linked, if you really think you need HDR with 144 Hz then pick one. Or get a reasonably priced monitor and buy a 2080Ti
I'd stay away from ultrawides due to game compatibility. Not all games support widescreen resolutions so the image can look stretched.

A 1080ti cant handle that resolution, no. It's almost 4k for which you want a 2080ti. 2560x1440 is fine with 1080ti.
