Monitor Recommendation

Hi all,

 

I'm running an Alienware A51 and am considering driving a separate monitor (crazy I know, but if I do I'll build a stand so the big monitor sits directly above the A51).

 

 

 

I'll be driving the monitor with an NVidia GeForce RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 (full specs in my sig). Just for fun I hooked it up to a 28" Magnavox LED monitor I've had lying around for a few years and it was OK, but the text wasn't very sharp. Checked the specs and found the monitor was only 720p.

 

 

Anyway, not looking for something huge (30" or less) but my main requirement is it has to be able to render the text dead on sharp just like the monitor on the A51. Recently began flying the Hornet and all those knobs and dials are tough to read on a laptop monitor no matter how great it is, especially with my 59 year old eyes :smilewink:

 

 

I'm guessing since I'm flying at the highest resolution possible on my A51 (1920x1200) I'd need a monitor that could handle at least that? Also How does the whole 4K issue play into this? Price wise, I'm looking to try and stay under $500 if possible.

 

 

 

Specific recommendations appreciated!

 

 

Thanks,

Dennis

i know you’re asking for monitor, but I would advise looking up Rift-S. You’ll thank me later. I have reverb but rift-S also has good review.

Thanks for the recommendation but no interest in VR :smilewink:
