Thread: Monitors and Keyboards

  1. #1

    Default Monitors and Keyboards

    Hey guys, I am thinking of upgrading my monitor and keyboard so seeking out suggestions!

    <b>Monitor:</b>
    I've been using this 768p monitor for like eight years now and I guess it's time I change it. I am sure that many of you would recommend me to get a 1080p monitor around 14K and while I believe it is a great upgrade, I am kinda uncertain about it. The reason this suggestion bothers me is that I feel like going over to the 1440p route would be best for me as I want to hold on to the new monitor for 3-4 years at least and 1080p might become outdated as well within that time frame. However, it would cost me around 50Kish to get a decent QHD monitor and since I never used one, I am unsure if this 3x increase in price is justifiable by the increased performance. Those of you who are experienced in this sector, please share your valuable thoughts so that I can take the best decision.

    <b>Keyboard:</b>
    What's the best mechanical keyboard in 8K? Suggest a few models so I can check their pros and cons

    If you go the second hand route, would you be interested on a Filco Majestouch 2 TKL Cherry MX Reds Ninja Edition?

    there is a gambling on upgrading the monitor part if you don't have a decent gpu no point to get a 2k monitor unless you are going to binge netflix or watch movies that's a different purpose , monitor and gaming right now is too expensive to grab rather sticking with 1080p monitor and later change it with something better when the time comes right i think a better deal . about the keyboard just go for gskill mechanical keyboard you will find in binary logic probably the best deal under 8k budget
