post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is this good monitor for gaming ? (BF3/BF4, RPG, Racing, Sports etc.)

Or maybe some other model?

BF3 and 60 Hz go together like peanut butter and mustard...or jelly and ketchup...or little hot dog slices in your fruit loops...or a console junkie and a PC enthusiast.

If the computer is primarily used for FPS gaming and fast action, I suggest steering in the direction of 120Hz. (LightBoost models, overclockable models, etc). The options for 120Hz are always improving.

Thank you guys.

@Jodiuh I'm used to 60Hz monitors and I game perfectly fine on them really.

But have you tried a 120+ Hz monitor? I mean...we were all fine w/ single core chips, 1GB of ram, CRTs, and mechanical hard drives @ one point.

To each his own, but I'd hate for you to miss out on such an awesome upgrade if you play shooters online. Just want you to have the best experience possible is all. wink.gif

FWIW, I was fine too, until I tried one. It had a massive affect on my k/d ratio and overall enjoyment. Maybe order from Amazon so u can return easily if it doesn't work out for you?

To be honest I hate washed out colors. I had a chance to see VG248QE in person (but not to play) and I hate that overbright and washed out-color panel. And I guess I have issues with that damn PWM method of dimming brightness...

Thank you for your best wishes smile.gif

I do too. BenQ's XL2420TE is the 1st 144hz panel that doesn't use PWM backlighting. $400 for what's ultimately still a TN panel is a little ridiculous tho.

Would be great to have a nice S-IPS w/ 144hz and 1ms G2G.

And an easy button on the front of the monitor, to turn ON/OFF the strobe backlight feature.

It's time to bring such a button back, thanks to the introduction of ultra-high-efficiency strobe backlights (e.g. nVidia's LightBoost, Sony's interpolation-free Motionflow Impulse, Eizo's FDF2405W strobe mode, and a few others).
