1920 x 1200 Res Monitor advice needed (GTX 570)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Putting the final touches on my new build and was looking for some advice on a good, reasonably priced monitor. I'll be using a GTX 570 and was reading it had very good performance at 1920 x 1200 resolution so figured I would start things off there.

I would prefer LCD, widescreen, and at least 24'″ and would really like to keep it at ~$200 or less. I'm in no rush so can wait until after the New Year which I have read is when a lot of quality monitors go on sale to clear shelf space after the holidays.

In the meantime though, I was hoping to compile a small list of options and get people's opinion of a 1920 x 1200 reso monitor for the GTX 570. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

You could check out Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals as well.

Honestly, any monitor that has a decent warranty, has an LED backlight, and has fast response time (e.g. 2 ms), you should be in the clear.

This season you can probably grab a nice 23" LED LCD monitor for $150 or less. I personally have an ASUS monitor (sig rig), and it's great. The built-in speakers are a bit tinny, but that's nothing new.

Okay so I want to look for at least 2ms response? What advantages does a LED have? Any other criteria I should be looking for?

Thanks!

LED-backlit LCD monitors generate less heat, use less electricity, and retain its brightness over a long period of time compared to a CCFL.

CCFL-backlit (traditional) LCD monitors do the opposite of what's listed above. My mom's CCFL LCD monitor is nearly 7 years old now, and after constant usage it's max brightness is probably half that of my LED LCD monitor.

I believe the only important things to look for are fast response times (2 ms is very good), a decent refresh rate (most should be above 60 Hz, shouldn't be a big deal), and most importantly user reviews.

Okay thanks.

I'll start trying to compile a list of monitors that fit the criteria I'm looking for and watch for the sales.
