I want to game on it, both at 1080p @ 2ms delay
But what's better for gaming? Which one do i have to move my eyes less when gaming so i can see targets? Or isn't there any difference?
Btw im not a big fan of big screen sinces i have to move my eyes and head alot while gaming.

I have found 24"-32"(32 at most) to be the ideal size. 22" a little on the small size.

Consider also that 24" is natively best on a 24" monitor, best image quality vs pixel density.
Oh and the difference between 5ms and 2 ms is not noticable AT ALL.

i guess he is trying to say 24" is natively designed for 1080p :) 
and yea... 24" will be a good choice in that matter.

I was using 21.5" before and now im on 23.6" monitor (both were samsung) it was a really good decision for me to upgrade to 23-24" size. I enjoy my computer more now; better resolution, sharper images and you can squeeze more views on your screen (since its larger, pixel wise) it makes things more interesting :) 

just make sure your graphics card is powerful enough to run 1080p

have fun.

Yeah me too I had a 22" before and I found it too small. Moving to 24" was an excellent move, now I enjoy games better. And by the way I don't have to move my eyes or head at all so don't worry.

indeed. 24" is the largest as it gets. you wont have any problems tracing your monitor with your eyes. but larger than 24" i find it difficult to stare at lol and also you start realizing the pixels on close view (like you stand on desk and watch the screen)

:D  currently im using a 32" for my pc and i find it extremely terrible(can't see all the stuff unless i move my head or eyes). So thats why i wanna get a new monitor

Then you would hate my 25.4" x 3 Eyefinity setup. :p 

Edit: I agree. 24" would be preferred over 22". 22" probably has a better pixel density but the screen is pretty small. One of the 23.x or 24" monitors would be better.

Nonononono I do notice a difference between my 2ms 15 inch screen and my 5ms 32inch, i can clearly see the pointer trials if i move the cursor alot.

Refresh rate would cause that, not response time.

Guys, is this monitor good enough? Samsung 24" SyncMaster S24B350H
May 14, 2013 9:22:09 AM

Yes, but consider an IPS monitor, they have much better contrast and color and are much more crisp.
May 14, 2013 10:58:40 AM

And they also have a slower response time. If you get the more expensive IPS monitor make sure you read reviews on it and they say its ok for gaming.

I don't want some super ultimate extremely crisp real-life colors monitor :p  haha
i just want to game properly on a 1080p monitor thats clear enough. Will this be enough?

Probably. I didn't see a good review of it online. Amazon had it, but at a way high price. As long as you aren't spending the $400+ they wanted for it you should be good.
May 14, 2013 11:33:58 AM

It's around 200 dollars

What's more important is if its a good deal compared to other monitors available to you. If the specs are good and has the plugs you want without having to pay way more then other monitors its a good one.
