I have been trying to figure out which monitor to get when I build my new computer soon, but I keep going back and forward between the famous IPS vs 120Hz TN debate. I have not tried any IPS or 120Hz monitors, so I don't really have any experience, and would love to get some info from people that have.
So this monitor is mainly going to be used for (fast paced/FPS) gaming, mostly CSS (at a pretty competitive level). Because of this I had my mind set on the BenQ XL2410T, but then I started reading up on different monitors, and a lot of discusion between TN and IPS. The more I read, the more confused I get.
Anyways, I guess I would be happy with both options, as I use a Samsung 226CW today, and I guess both are better then it (also concerning the response time). I was thinking of spending about 300-450 quid which I guess would be around $500-750. In this price range I think my options are:
- BenQ XL2410T
- Dell U2410
- HP ZR24W
- Asus VG236HE
- Asus PA246Q
- Alienware OPTX AW2310 (though starting to get a bit on the expensive side here)
If you have any other suggestions just throw them out there. And just to add the most important spec I guess for the monitor performance: I will be using GTX 580 in SLI.
Hope you guys and girls can help me find my best option. If anything is unclear, don't be afraid to shout out (I am Norwegian, so if there is any problems understanding my English, just point out which sentences that need more clarification).
Thanks in advance
