I plan on waiting for the new 6000 Radeon GPU and using it to go with a new monitor. Price range: <$800. I read 2ms response time and 120 Hz refresh rate were the best for shooters, is this true? Not sure what inch size is the best, contrast ratio or resolution. And does LCD-LED-Plasma make a difference? Please post your recommendations and any informative info. Thanks.
If your into actually having a full range of color then you might consider an IPS panel monitor as opposed to the fast response time of the TN panels.
for IPS panels i recommend the dell u2311. Its a 23" monitor for the price of a nice 24" TN panel
If you live in a colder climate and think 23" is too small then get the u2410 also by dell. It has even larger color rage, but produces an uncomfortable amount of heat if left on for some time. Another thing to consider is that the u2410 is exactly twice the price of the awesome u2311.
the myth that IPS panels are not suitable for fast paced shooters is silly. Modern dell IPS screens have totally acceptable reponse times and input lag. I play bfbc2 on my u2410 and notice no input lag or ghosting. The colors are amazing. GL gentlemen.
