Need help buying good monitor !

I am currently running on 1600 x 900 monitor

  1. Best answer
    If you are into FPS games, then I suggest a 1080p 120/144Hz monitor. If you are into MMO/RPG's, then 2560x1440 would be optimal, as the more screen you can see the better.

    I want to play games like Far Cry 3 , Crysis 3 Battlefield 4 etc

    so 1080p is also better ??
  4. Well they do not make 1440p 120Hz monitors, so yes, 1080p would be better in your case. In FPS games, a high framerate will be more useful than more pixels.

    how about third person games like watch dogs , splinter cell blacklist , assassian's creed ?

    seems 1080p 3D 27 inch monitor will be fine for me

  8. Bigger the screen isn't always better. A bigger screen at 1080p will begin to lose image quality, as opposed to a smaller 23 or 24 inch screen. Future SLI does not change the fact that higher resolution monitors currently do not support a Refresh rate higher than 60Hz. My friend recently got another 680 for SLI, and he also got a 144Hz 24 inch 1080p monitor. I would take a high refresh rate over a larger pixel count any day. This is the monitor that I would recommend:

    The colors are pretty bad at stock, but that can be fixed with a simple color profile download.
