Help with new monitor(s) - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I'm going to dual with a higher res 1600p and 120-144 24 inch monitor. The smaller one for fps and the larger one for my work and any non fps game. Of course I'll use both for most other non game related things.

I also need desk space for work so no tri for me unless you count my phone and tablet. As for tri or dual monitor gaming, sometimes I miss stuff on a single 24 inch monitor. It sounds nice but I'd hardly ever use it.

Sounds like to me you would enjoy a IPS more than a 120hz. Buying monitors depends more on what the buyer wants instead of what others recommend. thumb.gif

Yeah I'm just trying to decide between the LED Catleap, and the CFFL Spartan atm. They are both great price, but I think 27 inch might suite my needs better, plus its brighter and a bit cheaper.

I don't own one of the Korean monitors, so I can't really suggest one over the other. There is hundreds of threads talking about them. I guess that is a little intimidating hu?

Yeah I've viewed them, but the Spartan is kind of new and not many people have reviewed it, I find it hard to believe the CFFL back-lighting is better than the LED of the Catleap, that is the impasse I'm at.

So I'm looking at 1300 dollars for catleaps, or 1500 for spartans, 200 dollars more doesn't seem like much for 30 inch 1600p screens.

Wish i could see the difference in the backlights.
