Gigabyte G27FC Monitor Review
Introduction and Technical Specifications

If you've been eagerly devouring all our content in anticipation of the upcoming graphics cards then you'll have seen our review of the extremely affordable Gigabyte monitors in their Gaming range, the G27QC and G32QC. Both of them had a 1500R curved VA panel with 2560x1440 resolution at 165Hz. Whilst there were some clear limitations in their abilities, the price vs performance element was a heady mix and perfect for those of you who largely game on your systems.
If you've spent any time perusing performance charts you'll be aware that increasing resolution has a huge impact on how many frames per second you can extract from your graphics card. With the newest Gigabyte monitors falling very much at the affordable end of the monitor price spectrum it makes perfect sense that anyone seeking to add one of these displays to their library might not be having it at the business end of an RTX 2080Ti or similarly powerful card, which is where the G27FC fits in, with a 1920x1080 resolution making it significantly more attractive to those of you with mid-range cards.
Let's take a look at it in the flesh and then see if there are any differences besides resolution from the QC to the FC model.
Certainly on paper the FC is extremely similar to the G27QC, both sporting 27 inch VA panels with a curve at the bendy end of the curve possibilities with 1500R. If you weren't already aware the smaller the R number the more pronounced the curve. It still has the 165Hz refresh rate for your high-framerate gaming exploits whilst also sporting two HDMI inputs and a Displayport alongside the USB pass through ports.
