I am excited and proud to say that I completed my first build a few days ago and it went so smooth! I am typing from it now I would not have been able to do it without many of the members help from here. So thank you so much!!
Now I need some help on deciding on what monitor and size to get for this gamin rig Here is what I built:
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I want 1080p.
I would like to keep it under $250.
I will be playing games, so input lag is very important.
I will be looking at it straight on, so not sure about the viewing angles.
It will be about 20-30" away from me depending on how I am sitting.
OP, I would not follow what he said. ASUS is certainly NOT the best; it is ONE of the best. Samsung, LG, BenQ, Planar, NEC, and AOC are just as good, if not better. If you don't play competitively, I would consider eIPS panels. They are a good balance for gaming with low input lag, great colors, and good contrast ratio. I recommend the U2312HM.
