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.

Its so tough trying to decide based on specifications without being able to see the actual screen in front of me... Wish I could find a show room with some 27" screens.

The main reason I went with the Extreme proc is the 6 cores, this rig is going to be mainly a ESX build to host a bunch of VMs for practicing and testing setups I will be installing for clients... I was going to go with a Xeon build but decided against it in the end.

Why do they have equal performance? Is it because games cant benefit from the additional cores?

Then maybe stick it out until LGA2011 gets released thinking.gif Although you may have a 6-10 month wait on that one.

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.

Thanks for the info!

I used to have a 20" Dell and always liked the picture on it more than my HPs. My old PC was amazing when I built it 5 years ago lol... it cant keep up though these days.

I'm torn between the Dell and the HP. Maybe I will go wit hthe Dell, just to switch it back up.

Nah I'm building this puppy now. I already ordered all the parts so I cant go back on it anyway. I'm kind of regretting not going with a SR motherboard though.... Ah well. I stretched my bank account as far it could go with this anyway, I'm in the hole over 6 large for this one... doh.gif

SAMSUNG S27A950D Black 27" 2ms Full HD 3D LED BackLight LCD Monitor wth 10% discount till 28 July. Here is the review that says that that monitor doesn't has any noticeable input lag. It does not also have ghosting because it's 120hz monitor with 2ms panel.
I don't personally own it, but if I could, I would buy it. rolleyes.gif

If you have ever compared a cheap monitor to an expensive one, the differences can be quite large... they also can be small. If your gonna spend the money make sure its a good one.

OK! So bought one today. Went to PC Richard and Son (local electronics store for those who dont know about them) and picked up this monitor for 319.97$.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176195&Tpk=2711x

It has a good response time (5ms) and contrast ratio (1000x1, 3000000x1 dynamic), albeit I know people think it doesnt matter but it looked good in person (which is most important to me). Resolution is 1920x1080. The viewing angles arent the best but not horrible unless your viewing from a sharp angle... I look at it straight on so I'm not concerned really about that. Plus, its HP branding will match my 2 HP w2207h screens I already have.

So, now the setup is:

2x w2207hs
1x 2711x

All going on the new build. Pretty pumped! I will have a build thread too and some pictures of the setup for anyone who wants to watch as I go along. Going to post up about it all soon in the Intel Builds section.

Thanks for posting!! smile.gif

2560 x 1600 = 4,096,000 pixels

Well actually he has 2 1680x1050 monitors... thats 3,528,000 pixels.

Compared to 4.096,000 pixel 1600p monitor that is about a 15% difference..

Well this monitor seems to be a hidden gem. i dont know about the brand but I gave it a glance on tft reviews and it looks sweet.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/hazro_hz27wa.htm

well it is a bare bones monitor but it has excellent color out of box and the response time is great for a ips of its size. And its cheap.
