Suggest me a monitor for FPS gaming please :)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,
In the past [before 6-7years ago] I've used my uncompany CRT 22" 150hz which gives me kinda of free-unblurry-smoothest feels.
after some changes I gave the CRT to my grandmother beacause she realle likes the monitor when playing SA:MP and AC. (gamer grandmother haha)

After I was Swich to 19" philips [dont remember the model] but I didn't like the feeling of it when playing CS1.6, So I swich to LG CRT FLATRON ezT710BH 17" @ 85HZ [max] but feels no diffrents at all tha my LCD @ 75hz [max], and also I found 17" too small for me.

I remeber how smooth was the models in CS1.6 and the mouse movement in my old grandmother's CRT.
[there is no way to get my CRT 22" back, do not ask me for this]

Since in israel CRT stopped to being sells by like 2-4year beacause ALL moved to LCD.
I saw ONLY ONE shop that sell the Infinity IN17PFC CRT.

In the other hand, I saw alot new LCD monitor that can run 120HZ in israel (samsung 2233rz, LG 3D 120HZ, ASUS 3D 120HZ) but after find some info in the internet I found that there is other Factors for give smooth feeling like in CRT [input lag], this is true? they really close/not close at all to the feeling when playing in CRT ?

Also, I read alot of great recommended about Dell U2311H and DELL 2209WA they say about its panel which have great colour and such..
BUT I dont know, I'm afraid to buy and get dissapointed beacause its wouldn't feels like my CRT / no even close.

I really need your help guys for choosing a monitor for FPS gaming [CS 1.6 only].
Thanks For reading, really Appreciate any answers.

thanks,
Avi.

I'd say a U2410. From what I've heard the image quality is better than the U2311.

Unfortunately, there are no 120hz IPS screens, so your choice will be between image quality/color accuracy and refresh rates.

So, for refresh rate/smoothness -> 120Hz TN panel;
for image quality -> one of the Dells mentioned.

AFAIK, you can't have best of both worlds at this moment.

EDIT: Please keep in mind that for a 120Hz panel to be really utilized, your GPU needs to be able to achieve 120FPS.

Oh, I understand.
so you say that 120HZ TN panel is the closest option for CRT feeling when playing.
What do you mean about the graphic card part? My graphic card cant handle 120HZ ? my card is palit super 9800gt 1gb.

thanks for the input, please more. :]

What I am saying is that you're moving to either 1680 x 1050 or 1920x1080 territory, which will be a challenge for 9800gt, in newer games.

Although, I see now you said CS only, so I guess it will be alright, haven't played CS for a long time. biggrin.gif

He's saying you need to be able to acheive 120 frames per second in games, otherwise a 120Hz monitor is pointless. If you have a 60Hz screen your graphics card has to produce 60 frames per second to be able to display images on the screen without "tearing" the image (vsync). A 9800GT in modern games most likely will not provide 120 frames per second, so you may want to either think about a 60Hz monitor, or upgrading your video card first.
