Which Monitor? - Page 3

That is a 120hz monitor.

It will make your games feel much smoother than just 60hz monitors...

It has a resolution of 1680x1050 which is decent. It's better than 1920x1080 at 60hz... This is a cheap one, so it's good.

I'm assuming that you are playing more fast paced games than slow paced ones... Probably FPS in the future as well?

Anyhow... This will make your games be much smoother if you set it at 120hz in the control panel..


Please, if you are considering a 120hz monitor, make sure that it's 120hz. Most of the time it isn't. Most 120hz monitors are 60hz monitors advertized as 120hz... This one is REAL 120hz.

It requires a dual link DVI as far as I know (it's a basic DVI cable, no worries. But check from wikipedia to see if you need a new cable. Not all DVI cables are dual link. But no worries, dual link cables are cheap)

If you want better colors instead of smoother gameplay, let me know, I can search something for you...





EDIT: You can't vote on this

Most people just suggest something random instead of tending to YOUR needs, so the votes are a bad way of deciding...

Simple, fast paced games = that

Slow paced games = a different panel



Do you go into the action and don't look around, or do you admire the scenery in game?

Probably the 1st one. It should also take care of Google Sketchup and Adobe Photoshop/Premier Elements really nicely.

Well if you are into graphical design, a different monitor should be better.

I don't have the time to suggest one to you though, I need to get this one project done.

But that display is meh for graphical design.... Should work, but there are better options out there...

I'll look at getting two low cost monitors, one for graphics design and one for gaming. Would that be a smart choice?
post #28 of 47
No because monitors that cheap will SUCK...

With that budjet, your better off with 1 monitor...

60hz isn't bad. You can get one which is better for graphical design, but good for gaming as well.. You should look at IPS monitors if you can find one within your budjet. Link it here and we'll tell you if it's good

Dell U3011 is hands down the best monitor that i have ever seen. I have the little brother U2711, the resolution is great, the panel is an H-IPS panel from LG, if i remember correctly. The colours are amazing, and the best of all is no ghosting/input lag while gaming. If you have the budget, i would say go for it. It is quite an expensive monitor.
