    So, I'm a dumbass sorta, just to get that out of the way.

    I found a TCL 43S405 cheap awhile ago:
    https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/s-series-4k-2017-s405
    My first 4k, my first larger than 27", and clearly illustrating the fact
    that I'm no sort of competitive gamer, I love it. I may be full of crap but it
    honestly feels fine gaming, when I have the GPU for it without cranking
    down settings a ton.
    Realistically I spend 8 hours a day using two big apps on the screen
    at once for work which if fantastic, and play non-competitive FPS stuff in the evenings.
    I think it's a steal for what it is as a PC monitor.

    Except for I had a gtx 1060 when I got it, and I have a 1080 non-TI now, and
    that is about as much as I'm going to spend on a GPU for the foreseeable future.
    And it's obviously still lacking for 4K. It's not horrid, but it's a little short, I should have
    got a TI but I just can't swallow that kinda cost.

    So anyway, i'm thinking stepping down to a 32"ish 1440P and have been
    perusing what's out there. At first glance the HP Omen 32 looks good, but I
    keep seeing input lag issues with NV cards mentioned.
    I've been eyeing the:
    Philips Momentum 326M6FJSB
    BenQ EW3270ZL
    AOC Agon AG322QCX
    ASUS PB328Q

    All pretty budget options and the closer to $300 the better.

    Thoughts/other suggestions?
    I'm not crazy about going down in size, I don't have room for another PC or
    another monitor, but I know I'm going to be some newer games in the next few months
    and become annoyed at the frame rate, or lack of.

    I have an hp omen 32 with a gtx 1080. There isn't any lag with nvidia cards vs amd, however if you want to use the 75hz along with freesync you need amd. Nvidia cards frame skip above 60hz on this monitor. So if you are fine with just 60hz it is a great monitor.

    I was basing that on what I've read online, these guys seemed to find it had more input lag than
    was reasonable https://us.hardware.info/reviews/82...nitors-review-big-size-nice-pixels-hp-omen-32
    And ze Germans were especially critical https://www.prad.de/testberichte/test-monitor-hp-omen-32/
    And there was a lot of talk about it here too https://hardforum.com/threads/hp-om...40-5ms-75hz-freesync-va-panel.1909919/page-13

    But, there are also a number of people that are happy with it on an NV card.
    I'm not especially looking for over 60hz but I wouldn't object.
