Looking to get a new monitor.

 

I am comfortable spending up to $300 give or take $50.

Im looking for a 27".

 

It will be used for general desktop/internet browing.  But also for some gaming ( nothing hardcore ).  I might dabble into some home video editing too.

 

I see there are some monitors on newegg that look reasonably priced.  

If 2k monitors are similarly priced to regular 1980 ( I might be off with my number...?0 ) why wouldnt you want a 2k monitor?

 

Is there any advantage to having a 2k monitor vs not?

I assume a 2k monitor gives a more clear sharp defined image?

 

 

<-- still learning

 

*** When hooking my GPU to my monitor, what connection will maximize the picture quality?  HDMI?  Display port?  D -...?

Any digital connection, HDMI, Display Port, or DVI, should provide pretty much the same picture quality.

 

If you could link some of the monitors you're thinking about we could give you better information.

Pretty much looking @ any of these under or around $300?

 

2k=2560x1440 right?

 

1920x1080   is not 2k correct?

 

So is the image quality better with 2k?
