HI OCN and Friends smile.gif

For my next rig I would like a better monitor and definitely a 120hz monitor, Could you please recommend a very good 120hz monitor for me

Thank you very much

Edit: also wouldn't mind if it was 3D ready

Hey there, the new Asus VG248QE is an excellent choice. It is 144hz with 1ms response time and 3d capable. It can also be light boost hacked for 400hz plus. It is priced well and has gaming oriented features.

+1 for the Asus. It's basically the only real option right now, it's cheaper and better than anything else.
The lightboost hack gets rid of motion blur, but no it's not 400hz, it's 120.

Another reccommendation for the ASUS, even though I dont have it I have used it and it is very nice.

The S27A950 i like the colours, better pic then i have seen on a couple of the other monitors, However there is a bit of bleeding and of the 2 monitors that i have had there has been a little dark patch no bigger then the size of a bottle cap in the bottom right hand corner but its not really that noticeable, only when up against a light background and if you stare at it. if you are playing games or watching vids you are not going to see it.

+3 for Asus VG248QE.
The monitor has a unique feature if you like playing hardcore modes in FPS. It'll put a rough but accurate target sight in the middle of your screen. Happy Quick Scoping.

The lightboost hack gets rid of motion blur, but no it's not 400hz, it's 120.
Yes, it's 120 Hz, correct.

However, it produces the approximate motion blur equivalence of a theoretical higher-Hz display.
The LightBoost strobes are 1/700th of a second to 1/400th of a second.
But the strobes only occur 120 times a second.
Strobes of 1/Xth second yields roughly similar motion blur equivalence to a theoretical non-strobed "X fps @ X Hz" sample-and-hold display (science & references)

In other words; getting reduced or eliminated motion blur without needing extra Hz --
the bigger black frame insertion effect (longer black period and shorter visible frame samples) yields less motion blur. CRT flicker (creating that black frame insertion effect) is exactly why CRT 60fps@60Hz still has sharper motion than traditional LCD 120fps@120Hz. Most LCD's are sample-and-hold, which creates motion blur, including on non-flicker OLED displays (see Why Do Some OLED's Have Motion Blur? for a good explanation of the sample-and-hold problem)
