Which monitor would you get? - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Thread Starter 
And that is my problem so far...I keep wanting things and they keep adding up. Slowly building my rig, just got the X-Fi Platinum the other day. My TT Armor, Team Xtreem Ram, and E6400 will be ordered this week. None of which I need but I dooooo want.

So you see the extra hundred could help out with those purchases.

I think I've narrowed it down to Dell and LG now...hmmm

What are you using right now as your monitor? Also, slightly off topic, why didn't you get an E6300 CPU and bluegears B-Enspirer Sound Card, that'd save you a lot of money? Can you R.M.A. those parts back and get new ones, because, if so, then you could get a really good 22" or 24" widescreen monitor.

Monitors:
Dell 2407WFP Monitor
Samsung 225BW Monitor
Samsung LN-S2351W HDTV
That HDTV is only 720p, so, you might want to investigate that. Otherwise, those are all really good monitors. Especially if you want to watch Movies or TV shows on it.

I was considering and E6300 it really doesn't matter to me that much either way they will be oc'd. And no I wouldn't return my audio card for the life of me. I'm an audiophile and the deal was amazing it only cost me 99 dollars for it. Was a sale and it was basically 50% so even more the reason to not get rid of.

Why do you suggest a 22" or 24" monitor Ninja? Not a fan of 20"? Or you thinking more of R600 being able to output way better resolution than what a 20" can fit.

Response time on it is pretty slow, do you find any ghosting occuring?

Oh and Ninja forgot to say that I'm currently using a laptop..so no need for monitor.

Viewsonic G225FB

2048 x 1536 @ 80Hz

$499 CAD

It is a bit more expensive but will eat those LCD's for breakfast in any category.

I'm also looking at an NEC-Mitsubishi 22" CRT thats even better ($600 though)

I defy anyone to find a single study that promotes LCD gaming and movie playback quality over a decent CRT. Just one

Then you don't "ever" have to worry about ghosting, response time, true black, greyscaling, etc.

Also if you live in or near toronto, you can pick this up and pay no shipping.

Yay, finally someone else besides myself who knows the way. Dont get me wrong, I'm debating switching to LCDs for several reasons but everytime I start to, I see that they still can't hold a candle to my CRT favorites.

Exactly thenut. I like the look of LCD's. I use two at work and I bought one for my kids' desk but for picture quality, CRT's will continue to rule for some time to come.

haha Robilar...CRTs are quite nice except for the fact I have no room for a crt. Thats why I want an lcd. I have 3 crts scattered around the house or there is always one on the street because someone is throwing one out so CRTs are quite easy to come by...waiting for the day someone throws out an lcd monitor haha
