    Hi ,

    Since GTX1080 version seems unreasonably expensive in UK (and no i7 option only i9), i have decided to get GTX1070 Version, Which display do you recommend I get with it?

    Below are the 4 choices I have.

    1) 17.3" FHD 1920x1080 60Hz Anti-Glare NVIDIA G-SYNC Enabled 300-nits IPS
    2) 17.3" UHD 3840x2160 60Hz AG NVIDIA G-SYNC 300-nits IPS w/ Tobii IR Eye-tracking
    3) 17.3" QHD 2560x1440 120Hz AG NVIDIA G-SYNC, 400-nits, TN+WVA Tobii Eye-tracking
    4) 17.3" QHD 2560x1440 120Hz Anti-Glare 400-nits with TN+WVA Tobii Eye-tracking
    5) 17.3" FHD 1920x1080 60Hz Anti-Glare 300-nits IPS - Included in Price of 1750 GBP.

    Mainly I will be gaming, Running VMs and doing day to day tasks. No Editing or anything like that. So I guess UHD is out since it makes no sense for gaming.

    What will you choose?

    I have 3 on my gtx 1080 version and it's great. It's a TN panel, so the colors aren't as nice as option 2, but the 120Hz more than makes up for it.

    Thank you very much for the replies.

    I keep jumping between Aorus X7 dt V8 and AW17, I will go for the QHD 120Hz Panel if I decide to go with AW17 :)
