Ive been looking at this one, fairly cheap and has good reviews on newegg. Hoping to spend 200ish but I got 300. Please post some suggestions! Mainly for gaming pc/ps3 and tv, but priority is gaming. Dont watch much tv


Thanks

24" Monitors have low PPI. Avoid them. Try a 23".

Whats PPI? and could I possibly go higher? Ive been using this 21.5inch for awhile now, was hoping for something a bit bigger.

I would look at the Dell UltraSharp U2312HM if it is in your budget. Best 23" monitor in that price reange

Eh those are all 60hz monitor, you will experiance choppy game without vsync, even with it you will drop most of times to 55fps or lower which might appear lagy..
There is decent 120hz monitor

PLANAR SA2311W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824016168

It doesn't look best, but is 100% smoother then lagy 60hz monitor.. Even if you reach fps lower than 120fps, it will still be much smoother..

He means Pixel Per inch. Lol I have never heard anyone say that 1080p is too low for 24" though. I am typing this write now on the VS248H-P and I can tell you there is nothing wrong with the PPI of this monitor.

Some people notice the difference, I don't. I would go look in a store and see the difference between them first before you base your purchase solely on the fact that that monitor is 120 Hz. I would mostly look at the input lag:

Would there be a huge difference in picture quality ? I am sort of a graphics ho, just a bit... The inclusion of hdmi is huge for me because with my current set up I have to switch cables out everytime for ps3/pc

You can just hook up an hdmi -> dvi connector to your ps3 and display port to your computer.
