You.. You're still talking about monitors, right? wth.gif

For fps, wouldn't you want a 16:9 aspect ratio anyway? Due to the way 16:10 scales, it actually hampers your peripheral vision.

Honestly, I haven't tried an IPS so I can't comment, but my 2333SW's constantly bug me with the 5ms response time and when I'm gaming I frequently find myself switching to a 22" 2ms ASUS which is of far inferior quality. And it also may have had to do with the quality of monitors I was comparing, but my friend's 120hz Acer really impressed me; usually when I play FPS I feel like I lose sights on my target when I spin around quickly, but it seemed like no matter how fast I reacquisioned I kept a steady eye on my targets without losing them amongst the "blur".

Yeah, 16:9 is better for gaming. Especially when you're playing console-esque games like BC2 tongue.gif.


My one issue with the ASUS is I'm not attracted to the look (thick), but my issues with the IPS monitors in your price range is that they have rather slow response times.

For gaming, I would save your money and get 1 or 2 Asus VH232H. It will be better suited for your applications.

I've done a test between three tn's, and my ips, and I have seen no difference in motion blur, ghosting, or input lag. All I found was that the ips looked great because of the color accuracy.

I don't see any ghosting at all. I use my only for gaming (like Bad Company 2, Crysis, Dirt 2, FSX, and Test Drive Unlimited 2) and it's incredible. I do hear though, people say that 120hz monitors are amazing, so might want to go down to an electronics store and see for yourself. I've also heard people say that they'd take ips over 120hz any day, so I don't know tongue.gif.

Yeah, after seeing 120hz in person... it's really, really sharp as far as motion is concerned. It's hard to describe, but everything is extremely clear, even in the most hectic of action scenes.

I really didn't expect the difference to be that noticeable, but my local Microcenter has a few of them setup and I can tell the difference instantly.

If I didn't use my gaming pc as a design studio too, I might be inclined to go 120hz. Why can't we have both? frown.gif

That makes the decision so difficult lol. I really like the IPS HP and the Asus 120hz. I tend to play on my Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop while I'm at school. Games like B2, BF2142, TF2 and the such. I have never noticed much ghosting on my laptop. The panel they put in here I believe is a Samsung. I had to actually request it because the first panel they put in here was a LG and had a fixed refresh rate of 59hz which made a few games non-playable. Anyways, the HP IPS or the Asus 120hz TN have far superior panels in them. If I can't notice any lag in my laptop, I most likely won't notice lag in those. Or I could be wrong? Either way, I'm pretty torn between the two monitors.

I think the HP IPS is more attractive and will generally be just as good a monitor. But you know me... I haven't tried IPS yet. I very well may hate it; I'm picky about monitors. When gaming, your eyes should pose limitations before your monitor. Personally, I'd choose the HP first (and I know I'm eating my own words) even though it will probably have an infinitesimally small amount more ghosting, but it's a close one.

Also lol @ the above. I think you've exceeded the maximum # of lines, but I can tolerate that :>.

I'm picky about monitors as well and that's the trouble I'm getting into. Strange that this new computer I'm building it took a longer time for me to decide on a case and monitor for it. Case I went with a Silverstone Fortress FTO2. Now it's just the monitor haha...

Well, don't take our words for it. Go to any local Microcenter/Best Buy/Target/Sears/Apple Store etc and check out their monitors in person. iMacs, Apple Cinema Displays and of course the Dell Ultrasharp lines are all IPS and should be fairly easy to find in a retail electronics store. Most of those places have 120hz LCD TVs on display, if not monitors.

See which one you prefer!

I'd lean more towards 120hz for gaming personally (fps especially). In a fast paced game, you're probably not going to be standing around admiring the color rendering, but you will benefit from the added fps. If you're the type of person that can tell the difference between gaming at 30 fps and 60 fps, the jump to 120 is equally as noticeable.

Again this is also depends on gpu power. If you can muster together 120 fps in games then by all means you should purchase a 120hz monitor. Oh btw I can't see OPs sig rig. But if you can get 60fps and like color rendering then believe me you will definitely get the IPS panel. You'll also get spoilt. Man besides average usage, when I'm gaming, there's a whole lot of difference. I tried gaming on a two calibrated TN panels one an led 1920hd and the other a 1440. They both looked AWFUL. I wanted to smash them with a hammer.
