I'm building a new gaming rig and am having a hell of a time figuring out which monitor to get. I've read several other threads on here but I still just can't make my mind up. Hoping that some of you guys can help me out.
Some computer specs that might help:
MOBO: Asus p8p67 pro B3
Mem: 8Gb Corsair Vengeance
VidCard: Sapphire Radeon 7950 OC
I've got about $300 to spend.
I'm considering the following and would like to know what you'd put your vote behind, or if you'd go with something different:
I've seen it in action and it seemed really nice, and it got recommended to me from someone else I know...I'm just hoping that I could get a bit more feedback on it before I pull the trigger. Hoping that there's no major issues that I haven't heard of that would destroy my gaming experience with it.
Well the nice of those screens, is the 120hz refresh rate, not only the 3D, 120hz is something good to think about before buying a gaming screen, i bought one and i can tell the differences gaming are outstanding.
Well, like you said, that Phillips looks good, but i also never saw that and don't like philips for monitors.
Hdmi is not something nedded unless you don't have any other sound output and since the phillips don't have sound why would you need HDMI?.
And with all of that said, I think I've narrowed my options down to the following (listed in order of interest)
1. Viewsonic VX2453mh
2. Viewsonic VX2450wm
3. Asus Ve248h
4. Asus ML248
Probably going to go purchase the VX2453mh later today unless somebody tells me its a bad idea.
Ricardois - I looked for some 120hz monitors but it doesn't look like that will work for me. I ended up switching out one of my harddrives a grabbed an Intel 520 SSD 120GB so that cut into my monitor budget a bit.
