How about this monitor?

I might get a new job which requires me a new monitor, id like to work on it and game on it at night. This or something else?

That's a VA panel with 4ms response time..

I personally wouldn't go for it. IPS tends to be more accurate from what I've read so if you care about that maybe looks for an IPS panel. I also like having the response time as low as possible.

tomshardware has it as its top 2 monitors yet I dont see it anywhere else, very weird. Loved the 32 inch size for the price, tough. If i go ips, it looks like a 27 incher...

And this one then?

That LG is very nice..

But yeah, if you want 32inch maybe go for that Dell.. its not bad, the things I picked to complain about are rather specific and probably won't make that much of a difference unless you are playing FPS games rather competitively.

The color accuracy stands tho, the IPS will always be better there.

No fps here, just open world and rpgs most of the time. Always thought VA had better contrast and blacks while ips better viewing angles and that was it.

Tough choice, tough choice.

So I'm close to building a rig with a 5900x, 3080ti, and 32GB of ram. Since we're getting closer to 2022, is now a good time to build something with these specific components? I know playing the waiting game can be foolish, but I can holdout a few more months just to be sure. Is it worth it to wait for any upgrades in the GPU or CPU markets?

Currently on a rig I built back in 2011 (i5 2500k, 980ti, and 8GB ram).

Might as well wait. Alder Lake launches next week which could prompt price drops of Zen3. Zen3D VCache is coming early next year, which should bring Zen3 price drops.

It's going to be a challenge to get a 3080 Ti at a reasonable price any time soon...

Amazing to think your current rig would probably still do okay in today's gaming. 10 years on.

Ay thats a decent little fucker for sure.

Question is will a 3080Ti be enough for next gen exclusive games. I'm not talking about Forza Horizon 5 or Horizon Forbidden West.
I'm talking about the shit coming after that that's not hamstrung by an ageing PS4 or Xbox One.

Thanks so much for your responses Leonida, Rival, Grechy, and Hawking. I agree with a lot of your assessments as well, considering that the XSX and PS5 are on their infancy and the fact new CPUs (Alder Lake/Next AMDs) and GPUs (4000 series) are right around the corner then I will definitely wait. Thanks the 2011 rig still definitely packs a little punch, I built it back then with a Nvidia 570 and then upgraded to a 980ti around 2016. I feel that card bought it at least a few more years of gaming. Obviously can't do a 4k or max settings, but if you tinker around you can definitely get something playable. It really attests to the longevity of PCs, they keep chugging along and are reliable as well.

It'll be more than a enough for anything a PS5 or Xbox Series X can throw out, I assure you. Congrats on the build as well, G grkazan12

Can't wait for those 3D V-cache chips. My 3700x is a workhorse, but its time for an upgrade to pair with my 6800 XT.
