post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does a better video card, make you need a faster response time so you don't ghost? I am getting a lcd soon(suggestions are wanted) and a 6800gs, and wonder how hi of a response time i need? Please suggest a monitor 200 or less us. 17 or 19, not sure.

You want 8ms or lower for minimal ghosting, although ghosting only really starts when you get above 16ms. 17 inchers are cheaper and better if you want to play your games at 1024x768, which is the most popular resolution for gaming. Try to go 800:1 contrast ratio or higher.

I have an aopen with a 12ms time AND I am running it through the analog cable (I'm too lazy to go back there and change it) and well it runs fine with no ghosting. It's a 19inch and I got an $80 mail in rebate with it which I did send in.

you can go to andantech or tomshardware and read reviews on LCD's for gaming.

Companies label the response time (12ms , 8ms , etc) inproperly. And most monitors dont go anywhere near their rated response time. So read around and dont believe the stated response time.

And the 6800gs will run your games at 1280x1024 (19" native resolution, which you will be using for best viewing) but some games not so well. A 7800gt would be a little better if using an lcd.

my BenQ FP783 was the best 17" tft u cud get, when I bought it.

500:1 contrast ratio, 450cd/m2 brightness, 1280x1024 @ 75Hz, 12ms response time black to white.

That was a decent monitor, and it was 17" with a 1280x1024 native res, and I never had any problems with using it in games, except for BF2, where you cud just add a comment onto the shortcut to fix it.
