I'm not sure if this is the right category to ask this question but i need some advice on choosing a monitor.
I'll be mainly using it for gaming (fps, mmorpg, FIFA), AutoCad, watching movies, little bit of photoshop maya 3Dmax (hobby)
Internet and general school work.
yeah same here wasn't sure which monitor would be good.
Yes, from Australia, and I did have a look at some of their monitors and again couldn't see anything, I was looking at PA238Q at one point, but gave up since I read some reviews about blacklight bleed and it was $345
Right now, I'm really keen on the u2412m even with the 8ms, which apparently doesn't make much a difference. So just checking if there are any other that I haven't looked/heard of before I go the dell tomorrow.
That is quite an expensive monitor.
IPS panels are not really required for gaming. They are good for Photoshop and such since it has superior colour reproduction than TN panels. But as you can probably see, is very expensive and has a longer response time.
Yes, your right it is a bit expensive and a bit over budget. But it's just so hard to find a decent monitor with display port, good response time, and VESA mounting, after you mentioned it, looks good
Quite hard to believe since there are so many monitors out!
DisplayPort monitors are very expensive, the average consumer wont have them a while yet.
Yea, they are the one component (other than watercooling components) that I don't really know about. With processors and HDD's and such, you can just point to a number and say its faster or will be better/worse in this situation based off this benchmark. Monitors not so much.
Eyefinity can be set up on Displayport (you essentially have to since most AMD cards only support two non-DisplayPort outputs, with usually two more mini-DP ports). If you had two cards you could set up a triple monitor Eyefinity without using any DisplayPort... ports. Though if you don't have another card or DisplayPort monitor, you will need a DisplayPort to something adapter to get triple screens.
My monitor is a bit old and not for sale anymore. Its the Benq G2420HD. 1920x1080, 5ms and that's about all I know of it.
