Need a gaming monitor

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a gaming monitor as the ASUS VS248H is discontinued and I can't get it. I need it to be 24"-27" and must be atleast 2ms as it will be for gaming and I don't want any lag or ghosting. I will be using it for games like BF3, BF:BC2, Fallout NV, COD MW3, darkest of days. I also run an HDMI cable from my GTX460 and will want to do the same with a 580 later in the year, unless someone can tell me DVI is better and prove it.

Are you wanting a single monitor that's large or multiple monitors, like dual or tripple? I always go with a 2ms refresh and get good resolution for 1080p or even 1200. Do you plan to SLI your GPU at all? I have an Acer S232HL 23" and it's working great for gaming at high resolution games like BF3 and Skyrim.

I will be running just one monitor, SLI is possible but a long way away.

I have had a very bad history with samsung products all of which have failed and been serviced many times and still failed and I had to be refunded on all of them, I just don't trust them

I have been looking at the specs of my last monitor to try and use them to determine what it was that made it terrible and the worst ghosting I had ever seen. It was the Viewsonic VX2433wm
300 cd/m2
colour depth 6bit
contrast 1,000:1
dynamic contrast 20,000:1
response time 2ms
response time gtg 2ms

I have had this for over a year now. And I just love it. I know its not LED but its a very good moniter, for me. I picked mine up for $279usd from newegg and now they are over $300 but I would vote for this one although I know Dell has the best from what I have read and heard.

This is a thought .

I have never heard of planar and LED is something I really wanted but if I can find a standard LCD that will perform well in all my games then I will be happy with that, the performance is my main concern. On my old one most of the ghosting was actually in call of duty 2 in the desert levels, everything just became a sea of green. I will definitely read into the link you send me and consider your planar monitor.
