Thread Starter 
What is best monitor for gaming 2011-2012.I want LED,120hz.Btw i can't pay more than 1000dollars.
Looking for 24-27 inch.
And i heard if you got more than 24inch monitor you must change your graphics card more often...

Well what graphics card do you have?

If you have a $1000 to spend look around for the Dell U3011. They can be had for that price. In fact, there are two in the OCN marketplace right now for that price. AMAZING monitor, absolutely worth it. I don't think it's 120hz but I definitely wouldn't let that get in your way of getting an amazing monitor.

Size is irrelevant because it depends on resolution. If you by a 27" that has the same resolution as a 24", it wouldn't be any harder to run for your video card. With that said, take a look at HP if you're wanting a top of the line 27". I can't remember the exact model, but the last reviews I saw placed it above the Dells.

I'd love a 120hz monitor. Size really isn't all that important.

What are your specs? 120hz hinges on how good a system you run, since you basically have to be running at 120 fps.

27 inch is a bad choice unless you up the resolution a lot from 1080p, you lose out on a lot of pixel density otherwise.

21-22" is the sweet spot for 1080p

Glossy screen gives better colour reproduction and darker blacks but the trade off is you obviously get reflections when the screen is dark. I just use mine mostly in the dark when I'm gaming or watching films. In general browsing/other stuff you really don't notice. As for size, I sit at my desk with the screen in front of me like most people and 24" is plenty for me. Bear in mind, the pixels on a 1080p 27" monitor will be bigger than the pixels on a 1080p 24" monitor. And 120Hz vs 60Hz? 120hz is obviously better. It's the future!

Hrm 4129lt =~$1660 you could build a better rig if you wanted to for that much. Certainly off of newegg... I suppose I don't know what's available for what prices in your country.

Sorry op guess this isn't entirely relevant to the post. Back to topic.
