VH242H replacement - Eizo FS2333 a good call?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I have decided to finally upgrade my faithful, yet cheapo ASUS LCD. This was mostly brought on by using a Zenbook with a sexy semi-glossy IPS display, the colors and viewing angles were just too good to ignore.
I would rather not deal with wanting to upgrade my GPU (7950) so I think I am going to stay away from 1440p or 120hz monitors.
Is the Eizo FORIS a good choice, if a bit expensive? I have been seeing people raving about these monitors, and they seem to not suffer from gaming issues that older IPS panels had.
I spend a lot of time browsing/working on my computer per day aside from just gaming.

Any thoughts?

7950 is actually very capable of powering a 120hz 1440p display. I would not rule out these flavor of the month PLS panels.

They are almost identical to IPS in terms of image quality.

Hmmm. The issue is I know how OCD I will get when I have to turn settings down..and I really don't want to spend 500 bucks on a new 9XXX card, so for the sake of my sanity I wanted to avoid that situation all together biggrin.gif .

Isn't a 1440p display ~35% harder on the FPS?

If you keep the exact same settings, yes - but the nice thing about 1440p is that you can turn off AA for huge performance gains since its more of a luxury at that size/resolution.

You might need to turn off thngs like HBAO/Tesselation to achieve 100fps+ in newer games, but the trade off for size/resolution/color is worth it. Most of the time i dont even notice a image quality loss.

Then again that monitor you provided looks interesting. Outside of games 1440p is much better obviously.

That being said - im probably going to upgrade to the 9970 tongue.gif
