If budget is a priority, the Acer Predator X45 (W-OLED) is the less expensive option and still offers a superb gaming experience with a high refresh rate and quick response time. However, if you're after a wider screen with even better color performance for media consumption and HDR video editing, and you don't mind spending more money, then the AOC PD49 (QD-OLED) may be the better investment. Keep in mind the AOC has a larger screen which can be more immersive, but might be overkill for casual gaming or if desk space is limited. Give Feedback
