Gaming need !

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hello people! Need some suggestion, I've been using 32" lcd tv for gaming, I'm thinking about changing it with ips panel monitor, does LG ips277l is any good? I mean how was the refresh rate, also I play a lot of fps genre games. The reasons I chose it because of it's thin bezel(although not as thin as advertised) and sleek look, if there's any other suggestion, thin bezel only please and performance wise. One more thing, does 120hz really matter for fps games? Thanks in advanced smile.gif

I used to own a IPS 27 inch monitor with a 2560x1440p resolution at 60hz

 

It was an amazing monitor. 

 

However for FPS games my current 2ms 120hz monitor is a bit better.

did 120 hz makes a huge difference? I mean did you notice anything when switching from 60 hz?

Well I first had a 1080p 60hz monitor

Switched to 1080p 120hz later on. Everything was twice more fluid I can assure you. It was very hard to maintain 120hz on a GTX 590 but it was extremely smooth

 

Than I switched to 1440p 60hz. The colors and resolution was TOP NOTCH. At first I did not like going back to 60hz as I could feel the difference between 120hz and 60hz, but I got used toı it. I was as good a player as I was with a 120hz monitor in Battlefield 3.

 

I than switched back to 120hz 1080p gaming and 120hz as well as the low response time of my current monitor made gaming a bit more fluid for sure but the colors and resolution were never as top notch as an IPS monitor.

 

Read this thread. My impressions on both monitors in detail.

Unless you are a very very competitive gamer 1440p is really great. 

 

There are 1440p 120hz monitors as well but all IPS panels have higher response time compared to TN panels which is also a disadvantage on FPS games.

Personally I do notice when I change from 60hz to 120 or 144.
You feel it, it is smoother, also when playing fps games (I'm playing CS:GO competitively for example), it does help.
I would advise either the Asus (24 or 27) or the Benq, also the Benq is more expensive while its colors are a bit flat.

An IPS pannel such as a dell, a benq or a LG will be as good but with lower refresh rates, the colors however will be better.

unless your setup can output greater than 60fps, 120hz is pointless.
also 120hz tvs simply double up the frames; there is no benefit in tvs, only monitors.

You get more out of 1440P then 120/144hz

1440p is a superior monitor though.

 

TN panels only have 2 advantages

 

1-) Can be native 120hz

2-) extremely low response time.

 

Besides those 2 1440p is just superior.
