So I want to go Korean...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Currently I have an Asus 24" tn panel from 4 years ago. When I saw the newegg sale for a 24" asus for 119 bux, I was really tempted to buy it. I have wanted a second monitor for some time now. I mostly play world of warcraft and have 2 accounts and watch movies on my computer, a lot of multi tasking for 1 monitor. I almost pulled the trigger but then I started thinking about ips panels like the dell ultrasharp. I like my monitor, and I have never calibrated it, but I always kinda felt like its kinda just average and maybe a jump to ips would do me good. And then I found the 27" koreans. No, not 27" korean people, they will never be that tall. I mean 27" korean ips monitors that this forum has poplularized. These things are a steal. I can live with the lack of "Features" lol but the warranty thing kinda scares me becuase I have blown 2 tvs in the past year and if not for the warranty I'd be out 600 bux. Recently Microcenter has started to carry them in small batches which might be an option if the price is right. Over the years monitor upgrades have always put the biggest smile on my face as I was able to afford bigger and better monitors, so its kind of a no brainer to snag a Korean.

Heres the problem, I have a gtx460. I recently upgraded to ivy bridge (making my sig rig up for sale wink wink) but I still have apuny 460. 90% of my play time is WoW so my ivy bridge should pump out playable frame rates but I'm not sure. If not, would gaming at 1080p on this monitor look bad? Or is my card gonna last till i have more cash (lol next year)

You can try 1440p on the Korean monitors when gaming but it will be more taxing on your graphics card.

But regular usage and browsing the web should make no difference.
