Looking for an good monitor for my Xbox One / PC

I've been trying to do some research on this topic but am starting to give up and moving towards making a rash decision. I will use this monitor for PC gaming (Total war, SC2, Diablo) and also for the new Xbox One. Ideally I would like to get:

- 120hz
- <5ms response time
- 27"
- LED? (or whatever is best for what I described above.
- would like to stay under $400

So far, the ASUS VG278HE has been my front runner. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Yeah that is pretty much it, your other choice would be BenQ XL2720T, however that is almost $450.

    But do you think those specs are necessary or just over the top for what I'd use it for? I guess I'm just second guessing the specs because I've seen some people say 120hz isn't even utilized since most games can't run at 60+ frames per second.
  3. It depends on your PC. The 120Hz lets you use the 3D technologies from NVidia at least, if that is your thing. And for gaming the 120Hz+ monitors give you better responsiveness. So I will say that you don't need it, but it will let you get more out of your gaming system. For console gaming though it is most likely a useless feature.

    The 120Hz will only be useful if you have a system that can push that many frames. If not just get a regular 60Hz monitor and save yourself some money.

    You will want a monitor that takes HDMI also, I believe you need it for the xbox one because it doesn't use the RGB cables any more.
