Dvi vs contrast rate + brightness

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
well i was looking for a nice 17inch tft to replace my current one which is 14inch and has a 16ms responce time now being a pro gamor this just will not do

ive been looking around and my current budget (135 pounds) will get me a nice 17"tft just not a dvi one it seems

so ive been wondering from a gaming point of view which is better for me a dvi monitor or what with decent contrast rate and brightness

here are the 2 i was looking at
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=108389 - ok this one is vga but its 500:1 and is 300cd/m2
theres a few others like this but this is the cheapist one as an example.

now this one is the dvi one but its 450:1 and 260cd/m2
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=107428

which one would be more suitable for gaming?

o and if anyone finds the perfect monitor for me feel free to post it up - just remember usa sites are useless to me

I would get the one with a higher contrast ratio, the colors will come out a lot better and blacks will be more black and not a fuzzy black.

Mine right now has a 1000:1 ratio and the colors are great and a lot better than my 15" which is obviously a lot less.

This one is nice for a 19", though I've never heard of the other manufactuerer for the 17"

it's only 10 pounds more, has a better contrast ratio and the warranty is 3 years

If you can find 10 more pounds the 19" will be better overall IMO
