30+24

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok I have done reading and reading and reading to see which is the best monitor for me, and contemplation about performance.

So i figured 30" HP and dells new 24"

So if a game is to stressful i switch it over to the 24" or if i am playing RTS and i want to be that anal. Plus when i do some video editing i can actually have it on a 1080p screen to judge by.

think thats a good idea? or the 24" would just be a waste of space and i could do it with maybe a smaller monitor.

24" is a waste IMO - a 5970 is more than enough to run everything pretty much at max on a 30" monitor - My 470's dominate everything pretty much 60+ fps maxed out @ 2560 x 1600 - if anything turn down AA if things start to get out of hand as such high pixel density eliminates the need for super high AA.

If you want some more space you could consider grabbing two 20 inch Dell 1600 x 1200 monitors, putting them in portrait mode as they line up perfectly!

Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D i think im about to cave with that one, i am sure x1600 is nice but what im used to is 1050 so 1440 is gonna slap me silly. Well not really considering i have a 27" imac.


EDIT: wow sold out @ buy.com already, salesmen wasnt playing around when he said you better get it now.
