Best Monitor with resolution around 1440x900 for Christmas

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi Overclockers,

I know Christmas isn't exactly soon, but I decided to start looking around for a new monitor.

Right now I have BenQ G920WL with 1440x900 as its native resolution. The monitor is pretty good with the whole Senseye 3 color correction thing and all the games I run on max settings deliver and average FPS of around 60 or more.

Now, I was wondering whether there are any REALLY thumb.gif good monitors of native resolution of somewhere around 1440x900 (doesn't have to be exact and size doesn't especially matter either) which I could perhaps start saving up for until Christmas. The thing is, I don't want to go as high up as 1080p because that would severely reduce my framerate, which I must keep high at ALL costs! Moreover, I just want to see what's out there.

Thank you everyone in advance,

KostaCoffee

I don't find it worth the cost to get a new monitor with the same resolution if you are satisfied with the BenQ.

The only way is up. If anything 1080 res would be the sweet spot for your 570.

On Newegg you can find some really good monitors that don't cost an arm and a leg. I got my monitor from there for $119.
It's 21.5 inches and is 1920x1080p. It's really bright and vivid. Really thin and light as well. I love it.
Not sure why you want a 1440x900 monitor, but look around Newegg is all I can suggest.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009306 Here is a good example. The same size and res as mine, but mine looks a little different than this.

The reason I don't want a 1080p monitor is because I would expect that my framerates would drop from being 60+ or 70+ to 30+ or 45+, and I honestly would prefer higher framerate to a bigger screen.

EDIT:

just looked on Newegg and found this:

what do you think? 1600x900 Resolution should be fine.

You could always get a 1080 display and run it in 900 for games.

id say go with a bigger screen and just run the game at a different resolution. you have a 570 which is a decent card you can always try it out on different resolutions to determine a difference

i would get a 1080P and run at a bit lower resolution for gaming, sometimes depending on monitor you can run a higher refresh rate (75hz) at the lower resolution which is helpful imo when it comes to screen tearing. redface.gif

I appreciate all your advice, however It is very important for me to run the games on Native resolution. So, I apologise, but 1080p screen running a game on 900p just wont work.

YES, I know, I AM being picky, but I do have very high expectations from my gaming experience thumb.gif

Any particular opinions on the screen I linked in my previous post?

well personal stand point i had a 1440x900 resolution and enjoyed it but i needed a bigger vertical view because i play games like BF3, Crysis 2 and other games like that which do require battlefield awareness the more you see the better especially when they come up from above... redface.gif
