I am buying a new rig soon but the thin that I have no clue what to get is the monitor.


Here is my rig:

Case: NZXT Phantom 630
CPU: i5 4670k
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X40
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4gb)
Optical Drive: LG CH12LS28
PSU: Corsair HX-650 v2
Video Card: ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC


Please help me find a monitor that has the capability of holding the FPS that this machine would feed out and do it well and beautifully.(e.g Crysis 3 on ultra and next gen games on ultra)

Please help me find something under $300. Thanks

This is a good monitor (reasons why below)

IPS panel
LED so it has a better backlight which emits truer colours than LCD
Native resolution is 1920x1080 so you can play in full 1080p resolution (Crysis 3 would look amazing)
fast response time (less blur)
Looks awesome
Quality assured as it is manufactured by Acer
Fast refresh rate.

Plus it is under your budget which you could invest in something else.

If you do not know what IPS means then take a look at this-http://www.slrlounge.com/what-is-an-ips-monitor-underst...

Thankyou that is a very cool monitor but I'd like to hear what other people have to say too. I will most probably get this monitor. Only thing that doesn't apeal to me is the 27", I'd rather something like 21.5" or 24". However this looks like a spectacular monitor thanks.

Well for 100+ fps you're going to have to sacrifice some game options such as not running everything on high. Do you want a monitor to match how pretty everything looks or do you want a monitor that's really good for FPS games and will give you an edge?

You can go the IPS route like Azrael said, which gives you a much better looking game or you can go a 120 or 140hz monitor which will give you the best use of your 100+ fps.

I think you will like this- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

A really good monitor under your budget and it is the size that you want (24")

-144hz refresh rate so if you had vsync turned [ON] then you could play constantly over 100FPS.

-1ms response time which is incredibly quick

-3D ready so you could even play Crysis in 3D

-built in speakers

-adjustable stand so you can adjust it to how you want it to be.

And this time made by Asus which are renowned for quality products.

What do you think?

You see the reviews section and look how many people are satisfied with this monitor.

What would you choose fnatic. If you had the rig that I'm building?

Very good job Azrael, looks like a sick monitor. But I see this monitor has no IPS? Isn't that a bad thing?

Not necessarily a bad thing I don't have an IPS panel and I couldn't care less really. For me it is about native resolution, refresh rate and response time.

This monitor is fantastic for you. I wish I could get it.

yes it is really good, the features for gaming are incredible. Plus it looks good. I am stuck with this one and gaming is great on it. It all depends on how the end-user see's the detail. I went from like a 19" LCD to a 24" LED and it is superb for playing games like Borderlands, Call Of Duty, Half-Life 2 etc etc.

Uhm guys. I gotta tell you something. I live in Australia and that monitor for is $469 on the Australian website I get parts from. :(  I think the price is so high because it is 3D. Normally stuff is only like $60 more here
