Hi, in two weeks I'm going to buy new PC, but I have big dilemma.

What would you buy:

1. Samsung 23A750D + 2 x MSI HD 6970 Lightning

2. Dell U2312HM + 1 x MSI 580 Lightning

It will be used just for playing BF3 and another FPS games. I lean more towards Samsung because of 120 Hz, but what puts me off it glossy screen and possible microstruter with 2 ATI cards.

Thank you for any input.

The samsung 23a750d is a clear winner here. For FPS gaming, 120hz is nicer than a low end IPS, and even then, the samsung model has color production quite close to e-IPS panels, so it's not like you are losing out much by going samsung.

It's also glossy, which I find better, but just informing, since it might affect your decision.

Why that happens was told to you ages ago, the fault is not specifically the monitor. If it was, it'd happen everywhere just as much.

A tough pick to be sure. I'm actually picking up my SA23A750D today, and I already own a Dell U2311H so I don't actually have to pick. wink.gif

I'd say take the Samsung if you're going to game at 60+ FPS, otherwise go with Dell. Also 750D is Glossy so you have to consider whether that's a plus or a minus.

You are also tossing GPUs into the mix, and neither of those options are especially good value. 6970 CF won't be near as good a pick as 6950 CF, and you still end up with CF problems with drivers support and stuttering problems in certain situations. 580 would be a lot simpler solution, but frankly it's quite expensive atm, and the next gen isn't that far away. I'd pick a single 6950 or 570 and wait until 7900 series. Kepler might be too far off though.

But if I'd have to pick from those two just for BF3, I'd pick the Samsung+2x6970 Combo.

IMHO get Dell + 2x MSI GTX 570 PE TFIII or even 2x 2GB MSI GTx 560 Ti TFII

Either way would be much better value than 580 and would rape any game including BF3.

Thank you for every input.
I have decided to spend more money and go for Samsung 23A750D with 2 x MSI 580 Lightning.
But I have last question. Will 120 Hz work via display port?
Thank you.

Newer mind, I found this:
"Q: I really want to make sure I have 120hz what will I need ?
A: Most all video cards will have no problem displaying 120hz with no increased GPU load. You will need a Dual Link DVI output and Dual Link DVI-D cable or DisplayPort output and cable." on http://www.overclock.net/monitors-displays/1129341-samsung-sa950-sa750-owners-club.html

They are not FOR games, but they fit them just fine.

Did you know the u2312hm has less ghosting than half of the 120hz panels out there? It's a bit less than on the u2311h, probably due to more agressive, but well implemented, OD.

Not saying IPS should be preferred for games necessarily, just that it's fine. 120hz is much nicer if you mostly game.

I hope this is not true. I had 3 u2312hm monitors for a week and sent them back due to motion blur. I've never used a 120Hz monitor so I can only compare the u2312hm to the u3011 and an older 120Hz TV. Both of these, especially the TV, showed less motion blur.

I'll probably get the vg278h when it is available. I really wanted IPS since I have never used a TN monitor, but I could not accept the amount of motion blur that I noticed on the u2312hm. I primarily play racing sims. If a 120Hz monitor is not significantly better, then I may as well keep using my 4 year old Smsung TV confused.gif

It depends on the 120hz model. Some are significantly faster, some a tad slower.

(compare these three pics for examples)
