Hey guys, i'm looking for a new monitor. With a budget of about 180 euros(Europe) Can't spend more since i just did an upgrade on my pc.

Looking for 1080p, gaming.Mostly fps shooters. Portugal. At least144hz (currently on 60).Hdmi

Got some deals on local stores :

AOC 23.6" C24G1 (180 euros)

LG 24GL600F-B TN 23.6 (160 euros)

MSI Optix G24C4 (180 euros.)

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Its a skirmish between the 2 AOC and MSI (both are VA panels hence worth the 20 euro overhead).

Both panels are almost identical, only the MSI shoots up a little ahead with 10-bit FRC (or, 8 bit + 2 FRC) with a marginally improved colour palette + slightly higher dynamic contrast range. Another good selling point for the MSI is the higher sRGB gamut (best appreciated for image design/photography and doesn't have much impact in gaming). If it's the same price, take the MSI.

Only issue: Can't see much user feedback for the MSI model (something I also look into before purchasing a gaming panel). The AOC on the other hand sees abundant reviews and for a gaming panel - it's equally fantastic.

Thank you. I also found a legion y25f-10, for 180 euros also today.

So idk, if i should go with the AOC or this one.

The Y25F-10 seems like a decent panel but it's a TN model. Nowadays for a similar price range you can affordably pick up a VA screen (like the previous AOC/MSI models) whilst maintaining 1ms refresh rates. for higher quality visuals (colour/viewing angles/improved contrast/etc).

I guess a decent TN model does make sense if it's achievable with a larger gap in cost. For a mere 20 euros or so, if affordable, I would strongly recommend pushing up on VA units which deliver better quality colour modelling and pixel-vibrancy.... also better viewing angles whilst maintaining baseline image attributes.

Either the MSI or the AOC should be your best bets (they're both VA panels, which offer superior colour accuracy and viewing angles, compared to a TN panel)

However, if speed is all you care about, the LG unit would be OK.
