Which monitor would you choose for gaming ? - Page 6

post #51 of 61
If you're on 60Hz you're only seeing 60FPS max no matter what Fraps or anything else tells you because the monitor is only displaying 60FPS at 60Hz. With 120Hz then you can actually see 120FPS if your rig is capable of it and 120FPS looks much more fluid than 60FPS. That's if you don't use the Nvidia 3D technology, which is even better but also requires 120Hz.

So anyway, what's the point of disabling vsync? To get more than 60FPS? LOL... read above.

so these "pictures" of motion might not show much but could be a huge difference. and ppl react differently to small details differently (ie input lag/colors/text sharpness).

tftcentral seems like a legit site but imo a lot of these test comparisons are done by industry ppl to sell new technology. new technology might not be necessarily better in other areas.

Causes mouse lag, which is why I often don't enable it.

yes those IPS screens were calibrated first so they will look worse than that I totally agree

Vsync got a habbit of dropping the fps half the refresh rate which means 30 to 35 fps on your 60hz screen. And no fps and refresh rate are two different things. FPS is what your gpu produces

Guys, will you stop posting in this thread ?
I have chosen Dell UltraSharp U2311H and i don't need anymore help.
post #60 of 61
We can still discuss the topics at hand, even if you don't need help after this. But mostly, this thread has now died. No need to say to stop talking because nobody was going to anyway.
