Budget IPS Gaming Monitor

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I'm searching for a new budget gaming monitor for my upcoming rig, and I'm trying to decide what to get. Many people say go for IPS panels for colour, while others say go for TN panels for speed. Which is better for gaming at 1920x1080 on a HD6950?

These are the monitors I'm looking at:

My budget is around $300 (NZ). Any preferences or alternatives would be greatly appreciated!

If you want IPS, that's a cheap, great, fast one.



But for gaming? If you play a lot of FPS or racing, 120hz will be more enjoyable than IPS. In the same price range too, for some models.

I looked at that one buts there's no HDMI frown.gif It also has an extremely low response time (g2g). Would this create ghosting in gaming such as BF3 multiplayer?

^^ Right on the money tbh

I recently moved from ips to 120hz and for gaming a 120hz tn screen is just so much better, Everything just feels crisper.

sure the colour isnt perfect but unless your pretty sensitive you'll never really notice.

something like an LG w2363d should be pretty cheap and with the right settings gives pretty good colour.

Don't look at response times. I'll not bother to explain it for the third time today, but they are inaccurate.


The u2312hm is very fast for an IPS. Least input lag of any LCD I've seen rated, and not too much ghosting. Actually beats the benq 120hz model in ghosting according to pixperan testing. (though the benq is kind of slow in the 120hz monitor group) (check u2312hm TFTCentral review for all this info)

Let's just say that all LCDs have ghosting, it's just a question of how much. The u2312hm is decent at it. It won't be horrible, or "slow" by any means. But obviously you could have much lower on some of the faster 120hz models.

Does the Razor i2353Ph have much ghosting? Its cheaper than the Dell and has double HDMI

What about this:

Really, if you play FPS, I'd really recommend a 120hz monitor.

And make it one of the better models. The LG suggested is a good choice, for example.

LG IPS 236v and its smaller counterpart use the same panel as the Dell ultrasharp monitors but cost a fair bit less

Its just that the 120hz monitors are much more expensive...unless I'm mistaken, IPS and 60hz TN are the only monitors that are realistically available around $300
