Good quality 27" monitor, high response time for FPS and good contrast ratio a must! - Page 2

@ NewATOCing... What do you mean I wont be able to do anything besides surf the web? Do these larger monitors just suck that much? I play my video games on my home theaters 65" TV, granted console games, but the effects arent that bad. I notice it more on my HP monitors on my PC.

I'm trying to keep response time at 8ms or less and would like a 120hz screen. I dont know which one is going to provide the best picture quality though.

Need more opinions from peeps who have used or are using a 27" they like......

You might as well go for the 30 inchers, hprz30w or dell 3011. Both have better specs than any 27 inchers and could be had for about $1000

You should consider buying Sandy Bridge rather than 1366.

I would totally go 30" but I dont have the room unfortunately. 27" with the 2 22s I still have (going to run all 3) is ridiculous as it is. I gotta find a sweet wall mount too for my 22s now lol...

For gaming he is right, you save some money for identical performance

Yep, the 2500K-2600K is the better gaming chip compared to the 990x.

Yes.

Plus 1366 is a dead architecture. 1155 Will be around for a while (Ivy Bridge).

Like the others have said as well, response time is pretty much a non-issue with modern monitors. It's used as a marketing gimmick to lure ignorant people to spending more money. Same goes for contrast ratio.

No, the monitors do not 'suck' in the least. Dell's U2711 or U3011 are the best gaming monitors you can have, some people would argue for the HPs though. It's just that at such a high resolution your old computer won't be able to keep up.

Edit: Getting a 30" 1600p monitor would net you about a %15 increase in pixel count. I am betting the lag you are referring to is due to your graphics card not having enough ram to run your current setup. The more pixels the more gpu ram needed.

If you're talking about going from 1080 to 1600, the increase is more like 100%.

1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600 pixels
2560 x 1600 = 4,096,000 pixels
