New Monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

I'm looking for a new monitor and there is a few things that I'm unsure of.

1. IPS or TN(120 Hz) panel. I primarily game and doesn't really do any colour sensitive things, but at the same time i only got a 7850, so I'm not quite sure whether it is worth it.

2. 1920x1050 or 1920x1200 or even 2560 x 1440 - If I choose to go with the IPS panel, I've primarily been looking at 3 monitors:

Dell U2312HM - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Ultrasharp-U2312HM-inch-Monitor/dp/B005MHMFJA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360964077&sr=8-1 (Review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2312hm.htm )

Dell U2412M - http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Dell+U2712&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3ADell+U2712 (Review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2412m.htm)

Dell U2713HM - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Ultrasharp-U2713HM-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B0093IW14I/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1360964156&sr=1-1 (Review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2713hm.htm)


3. If I choose a TN panel with 120 Hz, should I then upgrade my GPU to 7850 CF, or is it not necessary to get the full experience.


4. If I chose to go with a 120 Hz monitor. What 120 Hz monitors are the best? I've been looking at the BenQ: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411T-Widescreen-1920x1080-3D-Ready/dp/B00A2KZ2XS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360964366&sr=8-1


Feel free to give all kinds of feedback, and suggest different changes.

Specs:

3570K @ 4.6 GHz /w 212 Evo
MSI PE 7850
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
Corsair HX Series 750W
Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz DDR3 2x4GB
Samsung 830 128GB SSD

Current monitor: Samsung Sync;aster 226BW 1680x1050 - I'll keep this for browsing etc.


At the moment I'm primarily playing games like BF3, League of Legends, Hitman, Borderlands etc.

Also I'm not buying from Amazon, so discounts and stuff doesn't matter.

So an update of the situation..

I'm looking at pretty much just 3 monitors:

1. Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM 23 inch http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005MHMFJA
This was my original thought, as it is still a bit bigger than my current, got the FullHD, IPS panel, and one of the lowest lag inputs available compared to a CRT.

2. Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM 27 inch http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Ultrash...dp/B0093IW14I/ Then my brother suddenly got his opinion in on the subject, and he recommended the high resolution monitors like this Dell, which i also think is quite cool... But they are also very pricey compared to the 23'.

3. Some Korean Monitor, Yamakasi Catleap etc. - I'm quite worried about all that shipping, warranty, taxes things. So not sure what to think here....



So as I'm standing right now, I'm rather confused...
