Best 24" gaming monitor?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. First off if I can't see an obvious difference, I apologize, its late here. I'm looking at Asus monitors for gaming. I will mostly be playing BF3 and Skyrim. My comp is running two Toxic 6950's CF so I expect amazing picture quality to match my graphical performance Viewing angles don't matter to me and of course response time has to be low. But perhaps the most important thing to me is the price. I cannot afford to go over $200, which thankfully none of these are, but I hope that isn't sacrificed for overall build quality.

So far this is what I got. I'm looking at these two monitors in particular.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236102

Is it me or the only thing that separates these two apart are the looks? I have to admit if these are exactly the same I like the looks of the first one better but I don't know which has better picture quality.

I'm also looking at these two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236095
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236111

Same models, just different screen size. Since they are the same resolution though does that mean the picture quality on the 24" one will look not as sharp as the 23" one? The 24" has 4 eggs which leads me to believe that, but I'm not sure.

Out of these 4, what would you pick for gaming and why? Cheers, I'm really looking forward to my first ever "complete gaming experience!"

With crossfire 6950s you might as well go 120Hz if you can afford it. I'm not sure what prices are like in the US apart from obviously cheaper than over here but asus and acer do some pretty good 23" 120Hz 1080p monitors. Mine is rated at 2ms response time (don't know how accurate that is) and it handles games very well and is nice and smooth at 120Hz

Again I can't do anything over $200 the cheapest 24" 120hz monitors are $300 or more because of probably 3D (which I will never need). And I doubt that $300 monitor isn't even good. Yours is $466 on newegg, ridiculous

I have never seen a 120hz monitor but since I can't afford it maybe it'll be an upgrade in the future.

$466? Really? Mine was about £220 which is about $360 and the US is normally A LOT cheaper. I would've thought it would be less than $300 at least. And the 3D is useless unless you have an nvidia card anyway.

I never got into the 3D hype, I just want a nice monitor with excellent picture quality/no ghosting for games, and for an affordable price

If your budget is tight, you might just go with this ASUS. Still good choice.

For serious gamers, or people that hate ghosting, 120hz is less about 3d, and more about fluid motion.

You aren't going to get a "best 24" gaming monitor" for under $200. You'll certainly find a very decent one though. Asus makes some of the best in your price range.
