Gaming laptop with 27 inch Monitor - Page 2

post #11 of 19
As far as 1080p 3d-ready monitors go, Asus and Benq have a few good options. I'm not sure if the Qnix IPS monitors are 3d-gaming capable, but the 1080p variants of those are available on ebay and might do the job for you too.

StatikGP, nvidia control center application lets me to force my laptop screen to the 120hz and suprisingly works like a charm!

If I can get something you mentioned, of course I will definitely force that monitor to all the way to the sky wink.gif

However, if you read the thread from the beginning. I will have a hdmi connection for that monitor which will be a big Downside..

And by the way I found out that hdmi 1.4 most probably will let me to use the monitor with 120hz.


Seems like Asus VG278HE is pretty good. But it doesn't come with 3d glasses. Do you think this monitor is an good option ( price/performance) ??

I dont want to have Toyota with Ferrari rims you know smile.gif

Fleetfeather, you really made me confused man!!

I just checked Qnix and when I was looking for it I found ViewSonic VX2770SMH-LED 27.( NO 3D)

Now, seems like I am going back to where I started at again.. Gosshh..mad.gif

Yes i read the thread from the beginning. and it's important to know that even though the nvidia control center enables you to change the monitors refresh rate, you will need a monitor that can handle the overclock if it doesn't support it natively which is what I was referring to. The hdmi definitely is a downside, but it's always nice knowing that if down the road you remove that limitation or use the monitor for a different situation than you have the performance you would enjoy.

The Asus VG278HE for $379 definitely is a fair price for what you're getting.. 144hz 2ms GTG 1080P and adjustable height / swivel is always a plus. nice monitor if you're in the market for a 1080p nvidia 3d ready 27" monitor. If it meets all of your requirements and you don't desire higher quality than that. I would pull the trigger.

You're right in that there are plenty of different options out there for monitors. The 3d-monitor option you've been looking at thus far probably isn't what most people would go for in your situation, but it's not as if it's a poor decision; you just need to understand the limitations of 3d-gaming using a laptop and HDMI (which you do).

If you decide to head down the 27" 1080p pathway, there's a metric tonne of options out there. I haven't heard much about that ViewSonic panel here on OCN , so while it probably isn't the worst choice you can make, it also probably isn't your best choice either.

The vast majority of members here on OCN will stand by offerings by Qnix, Asus and BenQ for all monitor types; be it 24' to 27' in size, 1080p to 1600p in resolution, 60hz to 144hz in refresh ratings, as well as TN or IPS style panels.

Going back to your original post, I'd say your best bet for an all-round awesome monitor experience is probably going to be a Qnix QX2720 or a Qnix QX2730. The 1440p variants of these monitors are owned by quite a few OCN members for use in single- or triple-monitor setups and feature really high quality panels with really great colour replication. They also can be overclocked beyond the default refresh rate up to and beyond 120hz in some instances (no guarantees, it's a lottery). To use one of these, you'll have to also pickup a HDMI to DVI-D adapter, since there's no HDMI socket on the Qnix monitors. As you probably know, DVI-D is exactly the same as HDMI except without transmitting sound to any speakers built in to the monitor.

As mentioned by StatikGP, the VG278HE is also a great option. Along with the points he mentioned, it will give you much the same experience as a Qnix monitor except you trade faster response time (2ms vs 6ms) for slightly poorer colour replication (TN panel vs IPS panel).

fleetfeather, I read your post and it was really helpful. I couldn't answer it because I have midterms and I have to study.
I had a crazy conversation between me and asus support on live chat. However, I don't really have time to tell you story right now. I will be telling you that funny, fearful story by tomorrow smile.gif

I will be going with a 2d monitor. Probably, I will be picking that up by tomorrow. It will be one of the samsung's 27 inches.

I start looking for gaming keyboard and mouse. Do you think should I wait for blackfriday, or do you have any suggestions for some good quality product with low price? " Keyboard and Mouse is very important for gaming, especially "mouse"". But I don't like to pay for something waaayy overpriced. I am OK to pay for 3D monitor but not for mouse. I dont know maybe I am too odd.
Oh by the way, you almost made my entire setup, from mouse pad to the 27 inch monitor biggrin.gif I am laughing right now biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif )


Note for some people who read this thread: I always looked for something based on price/ performance. The monitor I was talking about Viewsonic had $180 price sticker on it. Yes it had 7ms response time but it was really cheap. I didn't go with 3D monitor. Asus technical support and general support made me really disappointed.

Cool Beans, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

I can't speak for Black Friday sales because we don't get those here in Australia, so I don't know much about them.

Best bang for buck keyboards are not something I'm too familiar with. You might be better off taking a look at the Keyboard Suggestion Thread and asking for some advice there. Be sure to read the first page of the thread so you know how to format your post thumb.gif

I'm slightly more familiar with mice, and, without knowing much about the style of mice you prefer, I'd say a great performing mouse for a relatively cheap price is the Logitech G400 Optical Mouse. Then again, there's also a Mouse Suggestion Thread which will be infinity more useful to you than me rattling off the name of one mouse tongue.gif Go check that thread out too and ask for some advice (again, check the first post to see what the required formatting is).

All the best

I completely agree. I wouldn't want a monitor that big with only 1080p. A monitor that I use and highly recommend is the Crossover 2755 AMG and it's the thinnest and kind of just the best of the best of these monitors, especially for the price. In my humble opinion of course. I could NOT be happier and it appears this is one of the few that has overclocking potential. However, I don't know if that graphics card would be able to push 1440p consistently above the stock 60hz on demanding games anyway. The stock 60hz is where I currently use mine, even with a GTX 780 overclocked, and it's plenty awesome. Your card could certainly produce a good gaming experience with it nonetheless and could definitely power it in general, as my PC powers mine at 1440p even without a GPU at all. It also has DVI-D, HDMI, and VGA, unlike most of the Korean monitors, which usually just have DVI-D, so that gives you more options - and you definitely don't want to have to use an adapter if you can avoid it.

While a 560m would be plenty capable of pushing 1440p resolution for movies and general desktop usage, it's not going to push 1440p for the games he plays which is at least part of the reason why he wants to grab a monitor. For the OPs usage needs, there's really no point talking up the features/experience of 1440p.
