Here it is next to my current 27" IPS screen.



I was really afraid of ghosting and colors. At first they seemed washed out, but after turning the brightness down a bit they are very nice. The viewing angles are pretty terrible, not as bad as a TN panel, but off to the side the screen looks bad. A curved screen is already bad enough from a side angle. Luckily, this is a PC monitor and I'll be sitting directly in front of it. It looks great head on.

After overclocking the panel to 120Hz and enabling G-sync, all I can say is wow. I spent far too long just wildly moving my cursor around the desktop. No ghosting and the motion was butter smooth.

In WoW, it's almost like playing a new game. I really wish I would have gotten a high refresh screen a long time ago. In most areas my framerate is well above 120, but in areas where it drops to the low 80s there's no visible tearing. I also didn't notice any ghosting. It's WoW though, so I'll have to try some more demanding games this weekend.

Oh trust me anybody who isn't a sensitive soul loves guns here
That said I don't own one yet. My state has so many damn laws it makes anything more than a handgun or shotgun outside home defense setups virtually worthless. I do plan on getting my gun license this year though.

But all seriousness it was for my birthday. I got lots of money from family/friends and put it towards the sword and axe. I now have what's in the picture and Andruil from Lord of the Rings

Just bought myself the aoc Agon AG352UCG which uses the same va panel as the z35p, granted the angles can be pretty bad but then who doesn't sit in front of there monitor? I think the colours are great and it really shows off Far cry 5 in its fullest.

Closest thing to a case I am getting for my new build. MountainMods Modular mobo tray.



I got it in anodised black, and i don't know that I'll be retaining the fan port or back wall.

LOL, thanks. I purchased Doom awhile back on a steam sale, but never played it. Started last night. I also downloaded Dying Light. I only played about 1.5 hours of that game, but I really enjoyed it at the time. Not sure why I stopped playing it tbh.

wait until you get to the following dlc where you can modify buggy's and mow down heards of zombies thats when the fun really starts, but both of those games are great choices for new monitor feels.
