Please help me choose between these 2 ASUS 24" monitors.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I've narrowed down my search to 2 monitors. Need some opinions on which one you would chose, and why.

Games I play: 60% RTS (older titles; ~2-3 years and older), 20% RPG (Skyrim, Diablo 3, etc) , 20% FPS (FarCry 3, Crisis 3, etc). No racing games.

My rig:
CPU: MD 965 Black Edition @ 3.7Ghz
RAM: 8GB RAM Gskill @ 1600Mhz
GPU: AMD (ATI) 5870
MoBo: Gigabyte
HDD: 128GB SSD, 500GB secondary
PSU: Cooler Master 600 Watt 80+ Gold

Monitors to choose between (both are 24"):
1. ASUS VG248QE (NewEgg Item#: N82E16824236313). $239 shipped (w/ special that ends 11/11)

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Response time: 1 ms

Refresh rate: 144 Hz

Panel: TN

2. ASUS VS24AH-P (NewEgg Item#: N82E16824236331). $247 shipped.

Resolution: 1920 x 1200

Response time: 5 ms

Refresh rate: not listed

Panel: IPS

As I see it, the first monitor has the advantage of 144Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response. The second monitor has more pixels (1920 x 1200 resolution) and is IPS.

Really stuck in trying to decide, especially since both are similarly priced at the moment and neither has any real demerits. Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Since you primarily play RTS games you would be much better off with an IPS panel. Only if you played 100% FPS games would I recommend the TN panel. Go with the ASUS VS24AH-P or even the Asus MX239H which would actually be my preference due to it's slimmer bezel.

Response times are a gimmick so you generally don't want to pay attention to them.
