Which monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well i'm onto my second build a small budget mini-itx system. I am now looking for a monitor, looking for a minimalistic and flexible monitor. so far it's come down to the dell e1911 monitor or the p1911. I will mainly be doing work using programs like visual studio, 3ds max (3d modelling). My question is are these monitors any good for gaming, won't be gaming alot but would like to sneak a few sessions of BC2 every now and again and the upcoming bf3.

e1911 -

p1911 -

I take it your budget is around $170?

How about the Asus VH236H? It's ~$170, shipped (after rebate) on Newegg.
It's 4 inches larger, has a resolution of 1920x1080 (vs 1440x900), and a response time of 2ms (vs 5ms).

That's 2ms GTG, which essentially means nothing. GTG response time is like dynamic contrast. It's a meaningless number meant to look shiny in the ad.
In progress.

I know. There's no real standard for measuring GTG response times, and manufacturers have "tricks" to reduce them. However, that doesn't change the fact that the Asus is a better monitor.
