As a bonus, if you do get the Vega, and run across someone (a buddy, FS/FT, whoever) that is willing to buy your VG248QE for $100ish, that puts something like the D2719HGF at $75 out of pocket. Saving $100+ by getting that Vega would cover that by itself. It's $175 on Amazon. Still 1920x1080, 144hz, but a superior panel and most importantly : Freeysnc Variable Refresh. This means fluctuating framerates will be completely smooth unless the framerate completely tanks out. I wouldn't do it if you couldn't get good $$ for the old 24" But man, 27" is a sweet spot imho for a desktop gaming experience at 16:9 aspect. I upgraded from 27" 1440p to 34" ultrawide 1440p, and it's still about the same vertical size, just wider. Using 24" and under is almost a crazy feeling, and not in a good way.Oh alright awesome, will keep an eye out for it.
It's funny, back in the day we had a lot smaller monitors on average, but the 4:3 aspect ratio actually made it more acceptable. a 20" 4:3 display is about as comfortable as a 24" 16:9. I saw a 15" 16:9 Acer monitor and it was like looking at an screen shaped like an envelope, and not much bigger lol. Ok for a laptop, but horrible sitting a couple feet away on a desk.
YMMV, good luck with the whole thing! You're in for a treat whichever way you go.
