Im building my first gaming PC and need to choose an HD monitor to showoff its capabilities. I would like to keep the price at around $150. My system will include a GTX 670, so i want my monitor to show off its full potential. Iver narrowed it down to about two and would like help deciding. Also, i would like to buy it from either newegg or Tigerdirect
This one is currently on sale on newegg for a very good $129.99 but the only reason i hesitate to buy is it does not have an LED backlight, which i do not know if it is worth spending more on to get for gaming.
ASUS VS Series VS247H-P
This one is for over $190 on newegg and has nearly all the same specs as the one about except w/ an LED backlight. Like i said, i dont know enough about it to determine if its worth this price increase for the backlight.
If you could help me choose or find a new one that better than both, please do. Also i would like clarification on the difference between backlight/no backlight and its effect on gaming
LED backlighting is mainly for power savings and less eye strain, both of which I value.
The 23" is what I'd go with because of this:
If viewing at normal monitor viewing distances, you want to keep your PPI (pixels per inch) above 90. The human eye can start to detect individual pixels at PPI < 96 ..... ok to miss by a little, after that screen starts to look grainy. I'd avoid the choices highlighted in bold text
