Which one should I get, I am completely torn. If you are wondering, I play games about half the time and the other half I am making stuff on photoshop and surfing the internet, for stuff like this. In case this helps, I have 4770k overclock to 4.2ghz and GTX 780 SC. I do like better picture quality, but I am willing to try 120hz if it is that much better.

Neither, get a 1440p panel, a 780 is wasted at 1080p. If price is a concern look up a Qnix QX2710 on Ebay, same price as a VG248QE but solves your dilemma as its capable of 96Hz and is PLS so wont have terrible colours, best of both, 1440p to boot.

Agreed. ^^^

But if you can't afford a 1440p monitor, the MX is the better way to go, IMO.

Get the MX239H if you can't afford a 27".

Better picture quality means IPS/PLS.

higher response time and refresh rate makes a huge difference when you're playing games that require you to react quickly such as FPS/Starcraft/Mobas. If you aren't an avid gamer, then you would probably be better off with the IPS display as IPS provide MUCH better colors, brightness, contrast.

You my also want to look into 1440p monitors, like the other two said.

Thanks, I was thinking about 1440p too. Anyone have ideas for great 1440p monitors. I was looking at mx239h mainly bc it has a spectacular look and also better ppi than 27 version. Max budget is around 350.

Qnix QX2710 is $300.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I was hoping for 5ms, maybe 6ms if 5 isnt possible. Also, I am willing to up the budget to $400 if I have to.

The Qnix is a 6ms monitor....Unless Newegg is lying.
Either way I would bet money you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 6 and 8.

^^^ Yea they are lying, its an 8ms panel, its a mistake by Qnix, the X-Star is listed correctly (the two are the same monitor just sold by a different company.

Response time makes no difference what so ever. Response time is a measure of how long the pixels take to respond to an incoming signal, it does not mean for example that the monitor has x ms of input lag. Actual input lag is determined by the response time of the pixels plus whatever processing time there is in the scaler of the monitor.

The Qnix is barebones and only has a single input, meaning theres no nothing, it simply takes the signal to the panel, meaning no input lag. I used my old VG278H (2ms response time) next to the Qnix and there is no difference what so ever.

What response time does tell you is how much motion blur a monitor has, but again this is influenced by other factors.

On Amazon it said 8, not sure who's wrong, but anyways I have heard that 6 and 8 make a difference in ghosting effects though.

Yeah, thats why I was hoping for a shorter response time, I do realize that it doesnt make a difference in much of anything but motion blur.

8 is really not that high, trust me. You won't be able to tell the difference between 8 and 5-6.

Hey, I just found the X-Star DP2710, which has a matte glass finish instead of gloss like the Qinx. Anyone ever own one, if so tell me about your experience please.

They are the same monitor, identical. You can get Qnix's with matte coatings too, mine are.

Theres no reason to go with the glossy kind, all they do is take a sheet of glass and jam it infront of the matte panel.

Ok, thanks, I had no idea the Qinx had a matte version. I think I will go with the Qinx now, thanks for the help.
