Hi everyone! I was looking for the best (affordable) monitor to play with my Ps5. I need to decide between the BenQ EL2870U and Asus tuf VG32VQ1B. What should i buy?

BenQ EL2870U has HDMI 2.0
Asus tuf VG32VQ1B has HDMI 2.0

Both have HDR/4K capability/high refresh rate.

Another user on the board had problems with [a] monitor(s) when playing PlayStation 5.

Get a HDTV with above specs, with HDMI 2.1 fully compatible.
The problem is, there isn't many TV's that have HDMI 2.1 enabled, and when it does have it, you need an update to take full advantage of HDMI 2.1.

Positive "You don't need HDMI 2.1" video...
The catch is, you're playing 720p. It looks fine, but don't you want to take advantage of your $500 next gen console? I do.

"Um, there's no TV that handles Next Gen consoles."
