Should I Change Out My Monitor/TV?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently I use a Samsung LN32403
Its just a decent TV and I've had it for some time.
I play a lot o games. I rub a 1360x768 res.
I Run the 3570k @4.5 and an sli 760sc setup. I know that technically its my bottleneck but in all honesty, besides a higher resolution what gain would I see by going to something else. For instance, there's a 24" on my local Craigslist for 100. Its the viewsonic va2431wm.
Would I get any gains in my fps while gaming at all? Should I sacrifice the size and go with the new one or should I maybe stick with my 32?

i don't think you will notice higher frame rates, if anything i'd say go for a monitor with a higher refresh rate to reduce any screen tearing (too high fps for the refresh rate).

after getting used to high DPI monitors (like 24" 1920x1080, or my dual 27" 2560x1440 (work setup, working in IT is great!)) it would be hard to look at a low resolution TV display like that. That being said, it is all personal preference. you will definately notice that everything is going to look really tiny if you switch, even if you can fit a lot more on a screen.

On the computer in my sig, I use a single 1920x1080 23" monitor, and have a 19" tv hooked up next to it, and the TV looks like garbage due to the much cheaper quality panel.

Personally I'd probably get the biggest monitor i could find at 1920x1080 resolution and go from there. obviously budget would be an important thing to consider.

Sadly, my budget is low right now, I'm on the injured list at work so not making my normal pay, however, the sale of my 32" i
(If i go through with it) is going to fund the next screen. Ugh. So should I maybe pass on the viewsonic with the better resolution then? And wait it out for a bit and buy a 120hz later?
