how important is refresh rate/input lag/ response time for FPS gaming?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
mainly for Ghosts/BF4

im about to buy a 1900x1080 27" monitor with 10ms input lag, 60mhz refresh rate and a 5 MS GTG response time. Will this suffice for FPS gaming? I dont want to be screwed over by laggers and people with superior hardware

i read the input lag @ 10ms is excellent but i also read 120ghz can make a huge difference in FPS gaming. Only problem is theyre expensive and I would have to spend like $100 for twice the refresh rate. Would it be worth it? Also, is 5 ms GTG low enough?

thanks for the help

That is about the specs on the monitor that I have and it seems fine. Do not do a lot on online FPS though.

120 HZ would def be a lot better.

120Hz is absolutely worth the price increase.

I don't suggest 27" 1080p though, as the pixel density isn't very nice.

I'd look at the Asus VG248QE which is 24" 1080p 144Hz for $250 when it goes on sale.

damn, already purchased the monitor

it was a 27" for 180. I know there are better deals around, but man I needed something fast and cheap

I under the pixel thing, but Ill be sitting pretty close so I mean bleh I hope its not a huge deal

The refresh is what im interested in. How would it affect FPS gaming? will it help you kill laggers?

thanks for the info. Ill prob buy another display in 2 yrs and will get it right then

I was looking at these monitors but theyre too small for me

Im upgrading from a 22" and wanted something a little bigger. I get the specs are nice but $280 for a 24" is over priced. Guess Im going to wait it out a bit and do a monitor upgrade for the next set of FPS games
