post #18601 of 22647
So, I'm back to play CSGO as my main game. I've always played it on and off but now I've kind of stopped playing dota and back to csgo. I feel like my Asus Rog Swift 27" monitor is waaaaaayyy to big. 1440p is nice but I have to break my neck to look from one side of my monitor to the other. I tried pushing it towards the back of my desk but it doesn't really help since I like to have my monitor close up to my face when playing. So the question is. Do I get the Asus VG248QE or BenQ XL2430T?

I'd probably just play on black bars if I was you.

But between the Asus and the BenQ the only major difference is color / contrast. I would like to try the BenQ's black equalizer, however in CS you usually play with brightness maxed in game so idk how much the equalizer would help.

I tried playing black bars. But on a 27' with a native res of 2560x1440p it's way to blurry =/. I might just pick up the asus 24

I've seen both of those monitors recommended a lot, personally I'd go for the BenQ one though.

If you want native black bars just use something that is the correct vertical resolution. For example, 1920x1440 would be 4:3 smile.gif

Yea, this monitor seems to have all the bells and whistles. Is it worth the extra $100 from the Asus monitor though?

Any 144Hz/1MS monitor is worth it if you use it at native settings. I just switched from a 4:3 player to a 16:9, definitely wont go back.

I currently own the Asus Rog Swift 27" @ 2560x1440p 144hz with gsync lol. I want to go down to 24" for csgo.

Ahh word, I have a 24 Inch is use for CSGO and a 27inch IPS as a side monitor. At normal viewing, its not that bad, but when i play csgo i probably sit 50% closer to the monitor and would be too large of a viewing for me.
