Hello, I have a Sapphire Toxic R9 280X on order, and I am looking around for a new monitor to use with the card when it comes.
However, I am a little bit confused as to what type of monitor would work best with this card.
I'm in the UK, and I plan to use the monitor for gaming and now-and-again movie watching. I want it to be 23-25" and around the £100-£150 price point for 60Hz, and up to £250 for 120Hz, depending on which you think is best for me. It MUST have a DVI port.
So, I am unsure of what refresh rate and resolution would be best for me?
If you could either recommend the best refresh rate and resolution for me, or even let me know of a monitor, that would be great!
It's the 24" BenQ 1920x1080 @ 120Hz. Would this be a good match with the R9 280X?
Yes 120Hz would be good for gaming but for movies IPS monitor will destroy TN+Film 120Hz monitor!
So if you want monitor mainly for gaming then get 120Hz monitor but if you want monitor for movies the IPS monitor is the way to go!
