choosing a monitor for gaming on PC, and the PS4

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have been looking at a lot of monitors, and have recently noticed that some AOC monitors have a pixel frequency of 148.5 - 144 MHz and some have 170 - 210 MHz.
what exactly does this mean? how does it relate to the monitors performance? and will i benefit from a higher frequency when it comes to choosing a monitor for gaming?

i also need to know, is a monitor with a higher contrast ratio going to look better when gaming on?

Are those analog CRT monitors or LCD monitors? Pixel clock is usually something quoted in analog VGA connections, and is a factor of horizontal and vertical resolution, times the refresh rate. In addition to that, you have a delay to permit the electrode ray gun in a analog CRT to move from the end of each horizontal row to the beginning of the next horizontal row, and then from the bottom right of the screen to the top left of the next frame. 144-148.5 MHz is probably 1920x1080x60 Hz with horizontal/vertical sync and 170-210 MHz is probably 1920x1080x60 Hz without horizontal/vertical sync.
