As much as I've read about these 2 monitors I can't decide which one is better..
Benq XL2420T or Asus VG248QE. Newegg has the Asus $20 cheaper and an additional 10% off either one.
Also looking for a new mouse. I mostly play FPS games like BF3 and some RPG/RTS games. I currently have the Microsoft 5000 wireless mouse/keyboard combo. Some features I'd like in a mouse:
-Be able to map keys to do things like reload and maybe throw frag
-Sniper button to lower DPI
That being said I use a claw grip. Pic below is how I hold my mouse and I'd like the sniper button to be close to my thumb so I dont have to reach for it. I've been looking at the Corsair M60/65 but the sniper button is farther forwards and seems more suitable for a palm grip. I've also considered a RAT5 mouse even though most reviews aren't too good. I like how it has "thumb buttons" farther back. If anyone has any other suggestions I'm all ears. Thanks!
Sorry for the late recommendations, if you're still interested for a monitor, I'd go with the Viewsonic VX2370Smh-LED. Brilliant colour contrast and feels like a much pricier monitor. As for a mouse, if you enjoy MMOs, go with the Razer Naga, I can't speak highly enough of it. You meantioned, however that you play FPS games, and I'd recommend the Razer DeathAdder. There are 'Five independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons', so it should suit your needs for fragging/changing the DPI on the fly. Bag the Razer Goliathus Speed mousemat with the DeathAdder (and a good keyboard) and you've got one hell of an FPS-oriented setup.
