Hello All!

I bought all my PC parts today for my first build. However I still have not picked out a monitor.
I'm not sure which resolution I want to play at. a 24'' or 26'' looks good. But I do not want anything exceeding 1920X1080p.
I do want to play on 1080p
My budget is around $250 or $300.
Only at Canadian stores like
www.ncix.com www.canadacomputers.com or bestbuy. etc

Thank you!

The monitor you picked out is decent enough if you want to game at 1080p. This is all personal preference, but i feel that anything bigger than 24 inches is too much 'real estate' for 1080p. The only other thing i could recommend over the monitor you picked is one with 120hz, and i would only recommend this if you are a hardcore fps gamer.
Something like this for example (even though it is out of budget)

Again just personal preference, but i don't see a big difference between 120 fps and 60 fps. I can see it a little, but it isn't a must have if you know what i mean.
To sum up this rambling, the monitor you linked is perfectly fine for your gpu, you should be able to game at 60+ fps with your current gpu, as long as you didn't bottleneck the system buy buying a really cheap cpu.

I have a 27" Acer 1080p monitor and like it a lot considering its price (285 bucks). I moved up from a 24." Technically, humans can't see above 60hz or 60fps, so I wouldn't worry about whether you have 120hz or not. Its hard to recommend monitors as people to have preferences. I suggest you go look around at area stores for one you like and then order it online if the price is better.

I might just go with 60hz since I'm on a budget. Anyways my CPU is the i5-3570k

I would recommend 2560x1440. Its ******* amazing. I have a 120hz catleap but they are around 700 bucks these days if you can find one.

If you must stick with 1080p at least go 120hz, you won't need vsync witch by itself makes it worth it. Aside from that it feels better and looks better. Anyone who tells you otherwise has not owned one.
