Buying my First Monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

So I have recently bought a desktop that im currently building/upgrading parts for it... one of the things I would like to get is a monitor, I use to play games and use this desktop with a 47" LG TV but then when i used my laptop and hooked it up to a friends monitor oh man the colors were so clear so fast so good. I like to play games on my PC so I want to get a good monitor that will allow for HDMI and work with my computer I will be getting NVIDIA GTX 670 graphics card more than likely....

A friend suggested this monitor what are your thoughts on this one or suggestions for a great monitor?

ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD 3D Monitor Height&pivot adjustable 350 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers

that is a good monitor, but you want to sli 670s in order to max the smoothness of gameplay for games such as crysis 3, metro last light and so on... for this specific monitor tho.

The responsiveness is good but the colors will never be as good as an IPS or PLS monitor.

Check the Korean PLS monitor threads. They are the best monitors for gaming and photo editing because they are PLS monitors (excellent image quality, much better than TN or TFT monitors) and can be overclocked to 120Hz (excellent responsiveness for gaming).

The VG248QE is one of the best competitive gaming monitors available right now and at an excellent price point. Good choice. thumb.gif The colors might not be quite as good as the IPS monitors like Koehler said, but if you do a lot of multiplayer gaming this is your monitor.

And the 670 will run most games pretty good, some will need to have some decreased settings, especially if you are trying to hit above 90fps(where 120+hz monitors shine).

And won't touch Korean monitors because they are a hit or a miss. My CrossOver monitor just decide to go retire, and I am trying to fix it since the cost to ship it back to the seller in South Korea is very expensive and time consuming. Moreover, these monitors may comes with dead pixels or serious backlight bleeding. It would be a nightmare to deal with. But I am not saying these Korean monitors are bad. They look very nice when they work!
