    There'll be a mode for that (game/movie/etc) or some other 'smart efficiency/rich contrast' setting. Hopefully controlled by monitor on-screen menu, and not some driver faffing.

    Except for a thing. In POE, and maybe other games you can see the monitor visibly dimming a short time after getting into the game and running around.

    Is this intended, or something that can be switched off. I want my beautiful sweet IPS colours
    As daneel said, its usually game mode or some shit. Dick around in your settings and you'll find the culprit

    Looking at a 4k 144hz monitor. Toss up between Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Leaning towards the Acer simply because it has less obnoxious "gamer aesthetics". Should I go on and do this or is it wiser to get a 1440p 144hz instead of a 4k?

    Nothing currently can run a 4k screen @ 144hz.
    And if I were to go for a monitor in this price class, I would spend the money instead on a Ultra Wide.
    But both those monitors you listed are really good screens.

    Yeah this is what I was thinking. I heard even SLI 2080s cant get 60fps in some games.

    Ultrawide @ 100hz sufficient?

    I've got a Samsung CF791 that has been absolutely phenomenal. For bonus points it's a freesync monitor that works with the new gsync compatibility mode shit thats been added to Nvidia's drivers.

    Certainly not bleeding edge like Predator, but its about a grand cheaper.

    Ended up with the lg-34GK950G and its amazing. I haven't had an actual monitor for many years, been slumming it on a TV for so long.
