Currently i have a Samsung Syncmaster 19" widescreen and im using a 4850HD 1Gb graphics card. I want to upgrade my monitor and i cant decide between a 24" for about £160 or a 28" one for about £220. Im worried that my graphics card wont be able to cope at high resolution and graphics options during gaming??? i play a mixture of RPG & FPS games, maybe racing ones in future.
All the monitors are TN panels, all 1900 x 1080, all quick responce times etc. Just worried that if i get the HannsG one that i will need to upgrade my graphics soon after. What do you think? Also any further sugestions as to monitors would be apprecciated. Thanks all
so are you saying it doesnt matter if i get a 24" or 28", its actually the resolution of 1920 x 1080 which effects performace?? That would mean the only differance is price and for an extra £50 the larger screen would be worth it!?
Thats about it yes. one thing to take into account is that a larger set will have larger pixels. If you sit too close to a larger set you will notice the pixels so just keep that in mind.
Here is a chart showing what i mean http://www.prismo.ch/comparisons/desktop.php
You could look up numbers but its really subjective what works for me may not work for you. Its to do with the different focal length of different people.
I'm 30"" away from my 1920x1080 21.5 inch screen and its about right for me.
Having looked at the specs of the monitors you listed i would recommend the Samsung P2450HD to you as a very good well spec ed monitor. My own is a BenQ and while there is nothing wrong with it the Samsung is better spec ed.
Iv found this BenQ monitor stating that its a VA panel..... Is this better than the regular TN stuff then as it also quotes 8bit color 8ms responce and the 178 degree viewing angle. surely this monitor is a steal at £190!!?
