Help me pick a monitor pls :)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am in the market for a new monitor and I think I have it narrowed down to three choices (unless of course someone can convince me otherwise), and I could use some help deciding. I primarily use my monitor for gaming (FPS games like Black Ops ATM); I have my computer hooked up to my HDTV for movies, so I have no need to watch movies on my PC. Here are my choices, they are all around $200 right now with discounts:

- ASUS VK246H 24" -2ms -300cd/m2 -50,000:1 ASCR -Webcam
- ASUS ML248H 24" -2ms -250cd/m2 -10,000,000:1 ASCR -LED Backlight -Swivel & Tilt Stand
- SAMSUNG BX2331 23" -2ms -250cd/m2 -5,000,000:1 DCR -LED Backlight

The webcam would just be an extra gadget for me; I have only chosen that model because it has the same specs as the non-webcam model that is currently out of stock on Newegg. I would love to hear some opinions from the community.

My other big question is what kind of framerate drop should I see going from my current 720p (1440x900) 19" monitor to one of these three? I currently get an average of 70FPS maxed out in Black Ops with my 9800GTX BE... I am guessing I might need to upgrade my graphics card finally

out of those i would go with samsung one
or this asus:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236059
its very good for gaming especially. also if u dont need the webcam of course
i was scared of fps drop going from 19inch to 23 1080p but didnt notice much change and games still run smooth after adjusting some graphic settings here and there. still play on high settings most of the games, bc2, sc2 etc
