Advise on 24"and 27" monitor for games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

A while ago my monitor died, I couldnt decide what to buy so ended up borrowing a monitor from a friend.
Now he wants it back so again Im trying to decide what monitor is best for me smile.gif

I will use the monitor mainly for gaming (some FPS), I consider myself an average gamer, certainly not a pro.
At the moment Im using a GTX 470 videocard but Im planning on upgrading to a GTX 680 soon.

Im looking for something with good overal quality.
I do like the Dell IPS screens but Im a bit affraid of the high input lag people talk about so Im not sure if this will be the right choice for me.

I still have to decide if I want a 24 or 27 inch screen so I would like a solid recommendation on both sizes if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I'm in the same boat as you OP. I like the size of 27 1440p but i'm happy with 24" 1080p screen. I'm wanting to do suround but with a 1440 27" that would be hard to do without forking out a bunch of cash.

24 is a good solid size. It's probably the best size for 1080p and if you don't need a higher resolution, I'd say 24 inches is perfect for 1080p. Any larger and some picky monitor people wouldn't like the reduced pixel density. 27 inches is great for 1440p. Having used 120hz, 1440p, 27" and 24" monitors with my last two monitor purchases, I'd personally recommend you the korean 27" ips panels. You're not a "pro"/competitive gamer so you don't really have to worry about the input lag in my opinion. If you're not using 120hz, I would say any argument about input lag isn't worth it. That being said, the "input lag" is slightly noticeable on the ips monitors, but it doesn't hinder gameplay whatsoever. You just get used to it. The 27" ips korean panels give a very rich and sensational experience, whereas a 24 inch is more "engaging" or something.

tldr: if you can 27" @ 1440, or 24" @ 1080p @ 120hz, or 27" 1080p @ 120hz.

Alright. size issue is solved. I played around with a 27 inch and it just "feels" to big.
24 inch seems the perfect size and is an improvement even comming from 22 inch smile.gif

Now... Been reading good reviews about the ASUS VG248QE and BENQ XL2411T.

Any advise on what to pick?

I have the Asus monitor and its better than my old 24 inch. It almost feels like I got a new graphics card because after changing the options in bf3 it was way more smoother. Even my ps3 games are smoother when I look around on black ops2
