Looking for 2560x1440

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Coming up in my next computer upgrade I want to make the jump to 2560x1440 gaming.

I have some concerns when it comes to spending this kind of money on a monitor. The image quality and the color could be absolutely amazing, but if the monitor has input lag.... then that is a deal breaker.
I was originally looking at the auria eq276w, but i watched a youtube video and the input lag that i saw in the video was enough to automatically throw me off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bK-EX2s_PRg

Im looking for a low input lag/latency monitory. I know there is only one monitor out there that is capable of 2560x1440 120hz, but that is not what i am after. Since i see that you guys over here at OCN take liking to your 2560x1440's I thought i would come here and ask.

I just want to know which monitor (Catleap, etc.) has the best (lowest) input lag for gaming (fps specifically). I would also to know who, generally, is the best person to buy the monitors from on ebay.

(If the monitor had matte finish, then that'd be a plus but not required)

Thanks in advance,
Andaellyn

we all know about that video and disregard it. He got a bad monitor if I remember correctly. We have a couple threads on 1440p as well as a club for it. That monitor is popular as hell right now. Also if you use display port it gets rid of the lag. DVI has an input lag with these monitors. So get that one, with display port = win

So if i use a display port could i be expecting no/very minimal input lag?
post #4 of 6
Yep, display port bypasses the internal scaling which causes the lag

That isn't correct. The processing that the monitor does, which includes scaling, is only bypassed if the monitor wants it to be. DisplayPort reacts no differently to other inputs on the vast majority of monitors when it comes to input lag.

Looking for more inputs on this monitor.
