Hi guys,

Thanks for all the help before. I have booked the following parts and it will be coming in next week end. The rig I am setting up is:

CPU : INTEL CORE I5 2500K
MO BO : Asus P8P67-PRO 32GB
RAM : 4GB x 2 CORSAIR 1600Mhz (8 GB total)
SMPS : CORSAIR HX 1000W
CAB : C.M. 690 ADVANCED w SIDE WINDOW
LCS : CORSAIR H 70 COOLING SYSTEM
GPU : ZOTAC GTX 580

I am based out of Bangalore, India and I am an avid gamer. I will be adding a second 580 in a months time. I am looking for a good 32" LCD to play my games on. I am planning to pick this up. Its the Samsung 32" C530. Anything above 32" means I will get fragged in FPS' easily because of disorientation.

The game lag for this TV is only 14 ms reportedly based on the link below. The other option I have is the Sony EX400. I do not like the bezels.

Is the display ok? Please keep in mind I cannot go above this much. The set I am choosing is exactly within my budget. Anything else means I will have to chop of parts on my rig which I do not want to do. Its hard earned money guys!!!! I also need money for Crysis 2 so......

Please advice guys. And thanks in advance.

14 ms seems pretty high to me, but I'm not sure how much of an impact it will have. My 27" Samusung monitor has a 2 ms response time, and comes with a "gaming" setting to enable the fastest response. Maybe the TV has a similar setting?

If the input lag is truly 14ms, then you should be okay. Even some "gaming monitors" have the same amount of input lag.

14ms of lag works out to less than 1 frame of lag. 1 frame = 16.667ms. Hardcore gamers generally look for input of 8ms or less though.

Hey guys, please do not confuse rated input lag with actual input lag. Thats the reason I have given a link above. The screen I have mentioned has also got a response time of .01 secs. Higher 40" screens also have a killer rating but lag a lot.

Hey Pranshu what did you buy then?
i am from delhi and planning to get a 32" LCD myself but i will use it for tv and PS3 gaming. Whats the pixel response time of the unit, could you get that info anywhere? input lag of 14ms is ok. and hard facts apart whats your subjective feeling now(if you already got the samsung one,that is).
What do you suggest for me? i got the budget of 30k plus minus 3k...
looking forward to your reply,thanks.

Hey man...sorry for the late reply. I made some changes. I picked up a 2x6950 1GB for the rig. And I picked up 3x24" screens. I did try it on a Samsung 32" C550 though.

Trust me. This monitors are meant for console gaming as you sit far. While playing on my PC I felt my eyes are going to fall out!!!!!
