VA Panel for Eyefinity Gaming Questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN,

I have a few questions regarding VA panel for Eyefinity. I am currently running a TN panel Dell st2420l and I wanted to try out Eyefinity for games and such.

1) How much better is VA vs TN panel for gaming? *I heard VA has slow ms but better viewing angle and colors*

2) I'm looking at this monitor 21.5 inch GW2250 currently, is it a good choice? I can get them for 360$ taxes in for 3 of them.

3) What other things should I consider for Eyefinity?

Thanks guys!

This is a MVA panel, higher quality than TN

"Dell 2410" being U2410? Thats an IPS panel, better than a VA panel but slightly lacking in contrast in comparison.

Past a certain low point, TNs shouldn't have bad colors (at least calibrated, and apart from the color shifting). *VA will get you somewhat less color shifting and significantly better contrast, though. Actually I think those BenQ AMVA GW___ monitors have relatively poor colorspace coverage and calibrated deltaE, though not that bad or anything like most laptops.

It really depends on how sensitive you are to the slower response time and resulting motion blurring—also the overshoot artifacts—and how much better you would like the higher contrast and better viewing angles. If you play twitchy fps / racing / other game with stuff flying across the field of vision quickly all the time, a slower panel is probably a bad idea, but for other games, intense motion performance is not as critical. Also price, as $120 a pop is pretty low and you can't have sky-high expectations going in. You'd do (3x)1920 x 1080, landscapes? Sure that's not too wide and you wouldn't be better off with a single 27" 2560x1440 "Korean" IPS?

For Eyefinity, wouldn't bezel size be a primary concern, or do you not care about having two huge black bars in your field of vision?

Your probably right. I wouldn't mind going with a 1440p either but I'm not sure on their reliability in the long term.
