    Hey all, I'm looking for a new monitor and I'm wondering if the combined experience of the UFPlanets can help me. I have about CAD800 budget and I'm looking for a really decent 32 inch 4k monitor with built in speakers. Currently I have an LG 32UD59 but my wife has her eyes on it to play Neverwinter and Guild Wars 2.

    Any suggestions?

    What's 800 CAD in Freedom units? Ah! About $590 USD.

    Here's the thing... You might be able to save yourself some scratch if you don't really need the 4k. Unless you have one of the GeForce 2880 or Radeon VII Series video cards, or some kind of 4k video player, you're not going to get a lot out of the 4k upgrade. You could get a very nice 1440p for under $300.00 USD (So you might actually be able to get TWO...).

    Just something to consider. But if you DO have a need for the 4k... There's always the LG 32UD60-B. Same monitor as the 32UD59-B but with speakers.

    Taku is right, you need to drop some serious coin to get 4k at any appreciable framerate/quality.

    1440p is the gaming sweet spot atm.

    If you can hold off and wait till closer to the release of the next console generation when AMD will likely introduce the next Navi cards, you might be in for a treat.

    I'd concur with the 1440/144hz angle. Unless your rig is packing some major firepower it'll ultimately hinder rather than improve the experience using 4K.

    I have 3 of these and love em! Only thing I don't think they have are internal speakers, but I only use a headset or external speakers so not 100% on that, but they work great!

    Someone on here recommended me an Acer Predator 27". I know it's not as large as you requested, but I went to this member's house and got the chance to view it. Honestly one of the best monitors I've ever seen and had the pleasure to use. They seem to come on sale down to the £550 mark every so often, presumably they'll do the same in CAD as well.

    EDIT TO ADD :

    Apparently Acer do one that matches the specification, if not the price, that you requested.

    I have a GeForce GTX1070 and it runs my old LG 4k monitor right now. I'm only thinking of replacing it as my wife wants my monitor. Smile
