Looking for a new monitor (1920*1080) 60+Hz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm in search of a new 1080p monitor.

However, I'd like it to have a refresh rate higher than 60Hz at that resolution. It doesn't have to be 120Hz... for example, 75 would be perfectly fine.

I used to use a 75Hz monitor... when I had to go back to using a 60Hz one I thought I needed my eyes checked because everything felt like it had microstutter. Eventually my eyes got used to it and couldn't see it anymore.

I'm not sure if I want a 120Hz one, because it's unlikely my computer will be pushing that much FPS on newer games, so the higher refresh rate would just go to waste while playing games.

Size - 22" or higher is fine. 2ms response time would be ideal, but anything less than 5 is fine as well (I can tell the difference...).

Are there any monitors that fit this criteria?

Also, could someone tell me the difference between display lag and response time? Wouldn't they be the same thing? The wikipedia articles are very vague. For example, I hear a lot about how IPS monitors have a laggy feeling... even ones that have low response times.

You can optimize it to 75Hz refresh. Response time is 2ms.

You're going to have a hard time finding info on monitors that can be oc'ed to 75hz. I was also interested in this a while ago and was unable to find any good information. I know there were some 1680x1050 lcd's that were able to go up to 75hz, but I'm not sure about any 1080p ones.

It probably can't do 75hz at 1920x1080. Most specs will list 75hz as the max, but that's only at lower resolutions.

I got a 25" HP from best buy 200$ not bad. Gotta adjust settings but so far so good.
