Default Best Freesync 1-2 monitor

Looking for a 32" Freesync 1-2 monitor. Seen a deal on a ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQ 31.5" 16:9 Curved WQHD 1440p 144Hz FreeSync. It's $830 though wondering what other good gaming 32c freesync monitors are available it can be 1440p to 4K I'm driving it with a Vega Frontier GPU.

Loving my CHG70 so far. The viewing angle kind of sucks, but if you don't game/view off axis It really is a great monitor.

Yeah, I know. I got mine through Wal-Mart as my wife gets a discount there. But it still cost an arm and a leg.

Waiting till payday then pull trigger on this ROG monitor it'll be good for awhile. Then I can RMA my Dell which has served me well.

The only downside that I can see is that it doesn't appear to support HDR? Unless I missed it?

Yeah no hdr or that garbage 400 rating which is laughable for a spec.

I need a freesync 2 HDR
31.5-32 inch
2560x1440p not a 1440px1080 bleh
75hz-144hz
Dp 1.3

Can't seem to find any 1 monitor with these kinds stats it's either got that 1440px1080 res or no hdr guess can wait to see what comes out near 2020.

Have you looked at

LG 32GK650F-B

It WAS just on sale at pc-Canada for $400...over now, but may be a way to save you a kidney if it goes on sale again.
