. I am looking for a dual monitor setup that will be used for the PC and the PS4/PS3. Every one that I get seems to have something "wrong" with it. By that, I mean I get to reading reviews after I purchase them and then exam each monitor way too much...and guess what? I have an issue and wind up returning them.
Seriously, between what the OP brought up and personal experience, I think I would save a lot of money and stress if I just switch over to console gaming and call it a day. I just built an HTPC and it works great for what I need it for. I don't think that I will sell my gaming rig right now, but I think I am done stressing over the entire upgrading thing and having the latest and greatest.
So, I guess that I will stay with one monitor and get a nice HDTV for my consoles. By the way, anyone have a good suggestions on a TV for consoles
Anyhow, good luck everyone and happy gaming, whatever your medium may be!
Ah dont start with the monitors
I went through 4 different (expensive) monitors in the last 2 years for my PC. First it was 120HZ 3 Dvision ACER, than a Korean 1440p IPS, than a Asus 3Dvision 2 monitor and finally a Dell u2711... When I got the U2711, My next objective was a 4K monitor. And I am sure when I would have bought a 4K monitor than the next setup would have been a 4k 120hz monitor etc... I was so obssesed and I lost my money although I am sure I always chose the best options for the time.
I now have an AOC 1080p monitor which I use for my Mac mini and my PS4 if I ever take my PS4 to my study room if wife is watching something else on the living room. And I can not see myself switching from a good looking 1080p 60 hz monitor anytime soon because, there is not a single need or an improvement for me since I am not a PC gamer anymore. 1080p is just perfect for me.
For the last 2 years I had an INCREDIBLE PLEASURE with my PC gaming experience. It was AMAZING. But looking at my credit card history, I would have been MUCH happier financially if I stuck with the PS3. Also like I said in my first post, besides the money, I was obssessed with getting the best performance out there. How Can I decrease the temperature a bit more, how can I OC more. Oh I need a case with a better airflow let me change the case I own etc... These were GREAT HOBBIES. I had soooo much fun, but for me it was enough. I want simpler things in life. And a console is just an incredible option for me. If I was to have a gaming PC right now, I would have spent more time tweaking than playing. Now with a console, there is no tweaking but gaming.
But again guys these are all my personal experience. None of the things I say here are a universal truth or something like that. We are all different people.Edited by iARDAs - 3/25/14 at 10:05am
