Best Gaming Monitor / Size? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
30" gaming monitor for me is wayyyy to small. I can't understand anyone who can game on anything less. I want LARGER, don't care about cost. Anyway I hear next year some great new monitors are going to come out, I would wait as the market is in the middle of changes atm..

I have said it before and I will say it again ... you can have all the High Res you wan't but performance wise a 120hz will still outperform a 60hz monitor. Now, if you are not into playing FPS games and wanna play things like RTS, then yes the DELL is a good choice or if you are wanting to play Single-Player games. If not, get this ... or even better yet get two of them ... Acer HN274H BMIIID 3D 27-Inch LED Monitor - Black this monitor is great and the response time is 2ms vs High Res monitors being 5+ms. Dude don't know why you want us to assist you in spending so much money lol, if you have that much then why do you need us for? Buy what you want tongue.gif

Response times are a marketing trick, they represent no actual performance in any way whatsoever.

Also, the high res monitors have their benefits too. Mainly IPS and high res and size. You can't say either outperforms the other because they are good at different things.

Personally i find 27 inch monitors too large but that depends where you have it i prefer to have monitors 2-3ft away from me so i like 23 inch monitors better. for brand i would choose a dell ultrasharp monitor becasue of ips and such

I hate acronyms man... IPS = "INTERNET PEEN SIZE?" I am not sure, but when Higher Res monitors hit 120hz... by that time 30' will be the standard and 1920x Res will be standard... and the smaller monitors will be 240hz. Just a guess but it works weird like that... and while ms may not make a difference 120hz definitely does.buttkick.gif

In Panel Switching ? ... what the heck is that? lol

IPS = In Plane Switching. A panel technology that produces more accurate colors with a higher bit depth most of the time. Looks generally better and is better if you require color accuracy, if you calibrate it.

Size isn't the important factor. If it's a 30" monitor with 1920x, it's absolute rubbish. That pixel density is puke.gif .

At that size, 2560 is the only sensible solution. Though i'd prefer it higher, but that's the best we got ATM.

120hz makes a difference, so does the resolution and panel technology. There's a thing called preference. rolleyes.gif

In Panel Switching ? ... what the heck is that? lol

"Reduces the amount of light scattering in the matrix, which gives IPS its characteristic wide viewing angles and good color reproduction." or in easy terms it just adds more detail

I do not recommend you argue against someone knowledgeable if you don't know the basics.

However, I greatly advice you go and read up on IPS and TN panel technologies, maybe VA too. They are all different types of LCD panels that are best at certain activities. You might find it interesting.
