hi guys, im In need of a new monitor, and as always I think bigger is better,
I will be using it for gaming and after some research and your guys opinion
I belive.that a ips monitor that's 5ms or better is what im looking for.
I do not plan on using 3d ever, I hate it. and although I will be buying a new
video card in the 250 dollar range I think I want to go 1080p so I can have all
the eye candy turned on and as games get more intense ill be ok in two to three years
with same graphics card because im still at 1080p.

That being said ive read several people say 27inch monitors at 1080p are pixelated and
no amount of aa will fix it. Also I will be sitting close to the screen 2.5 to 3 feet from the screen.

So should I get a 27 inch or do you think I would be happier with a 24.

thanks in advance for all your help as always. my gaming is in your hands.

27" is too pixelated for my tastes, but it depends on what you're doing. Some pro CS players use 27" monitors with no AA because they need to be able to split pixels. If that's not your game then I'd go as small as possible to enhance perceived image quality.

i have one, 27 inch 1080p, perfectly fine. esp if the monitor is a good one.
heck, our tv is still 1080p, and those are 32/40 (and above) inches (although yes, we watch a bit far from these)

how close do you sit from your 27 inch monitor while gaming?

27 inch isnt 1080p but 1440p. 24 inches is 1080p. if ur comfy with 1080p get the 24 inches else for future upgrading get a 27 inch but mind you, certain games will req more gpu hp to run them. such games require a 7970,7990 or 280x or even 780ti for all the eye candy turned on.

actually there are a lot of 27 inch 1080p monitors, even from the good brands like asus and Samsung etc.

Most disinformed and idiotic message I have ever read. Ever. Especially the part when he says "every1 knows" thinking he is correct and trying to speak for everyone. No buddy.. you are speaking for yourself and you are soo wrong. I hope after a year he realizes he is wrong if not, then God help his soul. LMAO.

for the record, there are 27 that are 1080 and there are also 1440, maybe they can even squeeze in 4k in a 27, it is not impossible.
phones even have 1080 and above, and those are just a few inches.

about the question, yes i have a 27 (a sexy one too, S27A950D). how far i sit? just the typical desktop distance, around 2-3 feet. never had an issue.

my advise, if your rig is up to it, get a 1440. if not, then get a 1080 even if it's a 27. just read some reviews before you buy, visit a store before you buy, see it for yourself, it is a personal thing. not like say a soundcard where you rarely care how good it looks.
