120hz 3D monitor

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy a 120hz monitor but not sure what to get.

I am currently deciding between

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236104
and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...BenQ%20Xl2410T


I also play CS:S competitively is the BenQ worth the extra $50 or no.

Also, other monitor suggestions would also be nice.

I'm fairly certain that CRT monitors are recommended for competitive gaming - IMO the BenQ isn't worth the extra $50

IMO the BenQ is better than the Asus one, but I don't like the style of the monitor.

I'm going to byt a S23A950D when they arrive in Spain, you might want to look at that one. (though it doesn't have Nvidia 3D, it uses IZ3D)

I don't have room for a CRT and I don't like moving them around when I have to do schoolwork.

Same price as the Asus with the Nvision 3d glasses...
I am also in the market for one of these... Also check out the one by Alienware, that one is the best buy very expensive so far...

I have the BenQ and it's great for gaming at 16:9 resolutions. It can't scale 4:3 resolutions properly though. Instead, they made it to scale 5:4 resolutions fine but almost no one uses those. So if you play at 800x600 (4:3) then the image will be distorted if you play with black bars on the side (i.e. your crosshair won't form a square but instead will be a rectangle (will be taller than wide)). That's why if I play a game at those resolutions I usually run it in full screen which causes distortion as well but it seems to work better/faster than with black bars.

I would get a monitor that has 4:3 scaling which I think the Asus does and the 2233rz does as well but its top resolution is 1680x1050.

So 1024x768 will be blurry? I have to stretch 1024x768 on this monitor to get 75hz.

No, it won't be blurry. In fact it's probably the best looking 120hz LCD for those resolutions, but the scaling will be distorted because it scales 4:3 resolutions to 5:4.

What about this Acer monitor? My friend just bought it for his 3D setup and the 3D looks excellent on it. On top of that, it has a 2ms response time like the Ben-Q, albeit 50 dollars cheaper.
