GPU or Monitor - Page 2

post #11 of 25
If at all possible go with a happy medium.. Like linskingdom said. But if you had to choose, I'd say the monitor.

I think you found your answer. Monitor would be better at this point

I would go with the monitor... then save up some and get a gpu. Like other's said, the monitor will benefit you when your using the pc all the time, not just when gaming.

I can also vouch for the Acer 1080p Monitors... I love mine.

Go for the LCD...

you'll feel more comfortable with a nice LCD as a base first...

that LCD also a pretty good choice as well...

there'll always a newer GPU comin' out...so no worry there honestly...JMO

~Peace~

Exactly.

Definitely get the monitor first. Using that new card with your current monitor is like driving a Ferrari in a school zone.

Maybe you should consider a game pad for your pc? I was never into console gaming but I don't like sitting at the desk for an hour or 2 to play games.. sometimes I'd like to sit in bed or on the couch. Good luck with the 360.
