MS in Gaming

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm looking into monitors, and I remember being told that 2 MS is nigh essential for games. How true is that statement, or is it completely false?

Thanks for the help!

Anything under 5ms and you are good to go. Input time is more important but on higher quality monitors is when you will notice great input times. Samsungs, Asus, etc

5ms or lower. You can find them from 150-300 bucks. 200-300 for a good monitor.

Oh I can find 5ms easily. Almost everything IS that Thanks for the help, really appreciate it!

Edit: Wasn't seeing many deals (not that I'm in the market now, future reference kind of thing) and it was seeming like I would be paying an extra 40 bucks for that 2ms.

Depend on your eyes.
Some people can play on 13ms monitor and won't see any ghosting.
I'd anything under 5-6 is good enough.
Looking at your spec I would say get a decent LED monitor with IPS technology.
Dell Ultrasharp U2410 is awesome imo and it has display port in case you want to do eye infinity

Don't really have that kind of budget for when the time comes =/ Wish I did though, that monitor looks sick!

The first monitor I have ever seen bluring on was a 12ms refresh.

From everything I have read points towards like 5 or under if you want the highest quality, and 5 - 7ms is decent.
