(really) low budget gaming monitor - 24"

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Putting together a really low budget gaming pc. I need something 24" or close to that, VESA mountable, and CHEAP. This would be for gaming. I know that for my budget I'm looking at a 60hz panel. But I have a few questions:

1. Is there a standout model in the $130 range?
2. Is there a panel with known overclockablity in the $130 range?
3. If YOU were forced to have to game on a panel in this range, what would YOU choose?

Thanks in advance. Sorry I'm asking about boring budget stuff, I know you guys love the more expensive stuff. Unfortunately I'm confined to a budget for this. Kids and Dogs and Cars and Houses and terribly expensive endeavors these days, they soak up my cash lol.

You can't have every feature for $130, but you can get a solid panel.

Wow I didn't think Freesync monitors were available at this price! I think I will open up the budget just a TINY bit and go for the 24" Viewsonic for $160. That is RAD. I can actually upgrade my main rig's monitor and trickle-down that monitor to the budget rig. PERFECT!

Sorry to bump this, but my budget has opened up to $200.

Are there any freesync monitors a tiny bit better than the Viewsonic for around $200?

For slightly less than 200 USD there is the LG 25UM56-P. 2K 2560x1080 wide screen. I'm looking at this screen myself but I can't find any reviews of this screen and I am not familiar with this size screen or resolution.

Gonna shill my own, it's $200 here in kangaroo country so I'm assuming it's a lot less there. It's alright as far as I can tell, then I'm certainly no monitor expert.

BenQ VZ2350HM. 1080p AH-IPS @60Hz 5ms GTG, DVI, D-Sub and HDMI. Vesa 100MM.

Edit: Just noticed the post where you bumped up your budget and want freesync, I can't really help there but I'll leave the suggestion anyway.

EDIT: Nevermind, it doesn't seem to exist outside Australia. Should probably just delete this post.
