How outdated is my monitor?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Now that I have BF3, I am looking at upgrading to a high-end GPU before too long (probably to a 7000 series card). I got this monitor around 2 years ago and I am wondering how it stacks up against the current standard in terms of contrast, color, response time, etc.

Link: LG 21.5" W2253VP 5ms (1080p)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005152

Am I missing out on anything and am will I be hardware-limited once I get a new GPU? If I wanted to use a dual-monitor setup, would I need to get the exact same monitor?

Thanks for any input--

Well its display is 1080p so it not really outdated at all. You can't rally game on dual monitors, that is more for just multi-tasking, so you don't have to get 2 of the same monitors if you dont want too. If you were thinking about going eyefinity, which is displaying a game across 3 monitors, then it is best to have all the same monitors, or atleast size and resolution. So if you think you might do that in the future, then you might want to think about getting more of the same monitors.

its not outdated. there seem to be a lot of complains about dead pixels which yours is free of.
if you're going to dual monitor the viewing angles might be an issue it being a TN panel. and it doesnt have vesa mounts just in case you wanted to put mounts on it.
