Gaming monitor recommendation? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Hmm my pics don't load properly. Just visit the URLs if you are interested.


Anyway, for gaming, I do recommend a 120hz rather than IPS if you play FPS. IPS, especially on the lower end, is not the biggest deal ever for gaming. But for movies, IPS makes a difference (does that in games doo, but not nearly as much as 120hz), and 120hz makes none, unless you include the lack of possible judder.

EDIT: Hydros said it. Slower games are nicer with an IPS IMO. But 120hz is a very nice thing to have in fast paced games.

would i see a BIG improvement going from 60Hz to 120Hz in gaming?

Is it the same feeling as when you go from a 60Hz to 120Hz TV, the picture feels like its fast forwarding?

Not the same feeling. 120hz TVs use interpolated fake 120hz. 120hz computer monitors use true 120hz refresh rates. This means that you can actually see all the 120 frames per second your computer is sending out.

It doesn't look the same. It feels the same as going from 40FPS to 60FPS, roughly, maybe a bit better.

In that case i am leaning more toward the 120Hz, which would be the best one? the one Asus has is not LED back-lit , are there ones that are LED?

So what are the differences? viewing angle? thinner?

thinner, lower power consumption, more environmentally friendly. That's it really.
