    I'm currently using an old Dell U2412 M ( 1080p, 60Hz, IPS) paired with an i54690K and GTX 970 for both gaming and photo editing.

    I had hoped to do a significant system refresh and move up to 1440p but for budget reasons I've decided to stay at 1080p for the forseeable future.

    I'm hoping to upgrade to the likes of a 1660 super or used GTX 1070 and I was thinking about changing my display to the ASUS TUF VG249Q

    Obvioulsy the 144HZ and 1MS are going to be better, but I'm just wondering am I going to notice any other general differences in terms of actual image quality and rendering, especially given that my current display is much older tech?

    In a nutshell, yes. It'll be much more pleasant in use.

    Dell U2412M is 1200p, not 1080p...

    I'd say that the Dell is a really, really good IPS screen for its age so I'm not sure how much of a difference you'll see in terms of image quality, colour accuracy and so on. Moving to a higher refresh screen will be pretty sweet for gaming, although that ASUS is Freesync rather than G-Sync so I'm not sure if it'll play nice with Nvidia cards for variable refresh rate goodness.

    You're right, I probably should have been more specific. I guess I always think of screens in terms of 1080 or 1440.

    The Dell ( at least in terms of photo editing ) certainly is a strong performer, and is that's part of the reason I've kept it so long! But I suppose the primary motivator for this change will be the gaming side of things ( although obvioulsy colour accuracy etc is also important, hence going for another IPS panel)

    I'm lead to belive that the Freesync should work ok with Nvidia cards, but I may be wrong.

    Are there any other monitors in the £200 price range I should be looking at? There doesn't seem to be a huge selection on 24" IPS 144Hz displays!

    From memory Nvidia 10 series and onwards are Freesync compatible. What that actually gives I don't know. It's one reason for me to consider an upgrade from 970 to 1070 on 1080
