I am an amateur when it comes to monitors.

Does NOT care for 3D, but care VERY much for the 120hz refresh rate.

All I know its a decent jump from 60hz to a 120hz monitor.

Also I heard IPS/PLS panels weren't really meant for gaming.



Right now I am using a 19inch 1440x900p since I sold both my ASUS ML248H and Samsung 2494HM in the past 5 days.

Games I mostly play are Battlefield 3, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 Beta, Final Fantasy 14 and WILL be playing Guild Wars 2.



Dell has the U2711 for $645 CDN after discount + coupon code (TODAY ONLY DEAL!!).

Also I heard Dell is really decent with their tech support and warranty service.


I can get the BenQ brand new at around $350 CDN.

The specs of my rig is in my signature.


Urgent advice needed!

Looking at the games you play 120Hz will make next to no difference. U2711 all the way. Only BF3 will benefit a bit but thats about it.

I personally would choose the Dell Monitor, but that's because I have no interest in 120hz, it sounds like your more interested in 120hz, so I would go for the BenQ.

There are a bunch of 120hz 27 inch monitors out there (though admittedly they are all at 1080p) to choose from as well if you wanted to go bigger than 24 inches.

There are also the Korean Catleap (IPS + some are capable of 100hz+) monitors to consider - someone on OCN is trying to organise a group buy of a 100hz capable veriety.

I LOVE my Dell U2711. Night and day difference in the colors compared to my 1080p acer.

450 Im very happy whit it, collors look great compared whit mid class 1080p monitors and when it comes to gaming you acctualy CAN see diffren ce in 60 HZ VS 120HZ ( think about racegames,bf3 ) and the black equalizer is maddnes in bf3 for example a map whit containers where u normally can't see anyone hide in it, whit the xl2420t you can ! and it wont mess up your collors or gamma . hope this helps you ! thumb.gif

Just got the xl2420T and its a beast...I play FPS (BF3, CS:GO) and RPG (D3 and final fantasy series) games. This monitor pwns FPS. Playing D3 beta looks damn good. No complaints.

Cheers

Personally, I'd get the BenQ. You have a good video card and should have no problems keeping 120 fps in games, so you'll see the benefits of 120 hz monitor. And you seem to really like the idea.

Also, instead of dropping $650 on that Dell, look into getting one of the Korean S-IPS monitors. Vast majority of people are having great experiences with them (ie no problems), and they're going for ~$400 including shipping. You can get a BenQ AND a 27" 1440p IPS for ~$750.
