  1. Are you just upgrading your GTX 970 to a GTX 1060? If thats the case it would not be worth it.

    To solve your screen tearing issue, enable variable sync in the Nvidia control panel to solve that problem. If you want smoother gameplay and no stutter when gaming, get a G-Sync monitor.

    If you want the cheapest G-Sync screen available;

    £150 pounds and below, maybe a little more

    I would say get an RX 480, its slightly weaker than a 6GB 1060 but freesync monitors that its is compatible with are alot cheaper than the G-Sync whihc the 1060 is compatible with. FreeSync elimates screen tearing and stuttering and is very nice for gaming.

    This display has a very low response time, 75Hz refresh rate, good color for a TN panel, and anti blue light etc etc.

    is that monitor a free sync?
  7. Yes that is a FreeSync Monitor.

    this looks very promising, however do you know of one thats 24" or 23.6"
  9. This is a 24" FreeSync monitor, but is just a 60Hz refresh rate. I would recommend the 21" for gaming if you play fps games. If you want a 24" FreeSync with a high refresh rate then that would cost £150-200
