Is this a good monitor?

I'm going to be getting a new PC soon, and I'm wondering whether or not this monitor is good for its price (I live in Aus)

Also, I've been using a 2560x1440 monitor for a while, would downscaling to 1080p have a noticeable difference? (especially in games)

Running any monitor outside of it's native resolution will look worse than running the same resolution on something that's native to it.

And I'd assume that's a good monitor; LG always makes good products. I've never been disappointed by that brand.

I meant 'downscaling' as I'm getting a new 1080p monitor and I was asking if I could see a difference.Thanks for your response -^

Well, there are a lot of factors that'd determine that. I'm going to make a couple of assumptions, though: you're not sitting more than 3' away from your monitor, and you have perfect vision. In that case, you might be able to, but how much that matters depends on personal preference. I game at 1366x768 on a 32" monitor, but I don't really mind the graininess (I grew up gaming on resolutions as low as 300x240i), but I'm not very picky at all about resolution. Some people I know can't stand anything below 1440p for PC gaming. If you do end up caring, use antialiasing.
