  1. If you are on a tight budget and are willing to sacrifice the monitor's DisplayPort input requirement (you can use the GTX 1060's HDMI output instead), then, this:

    BenQ - GL2460HM 24.0" 1920x1080 60Hz Monitor ($109.00 @ Amazon)

    If the monitor's DisplayPort input is really preferred and budget is still a concern, then the cheapest 1080p/60Hz gaming monitor I can find is this:

    AOC - G2460VQ6 24.0" 1920x1080 60Hz Monitor ($169.99 @ B&H)

    If cost is not a problem, and you want to take advantage of the G-Sync technology (variable refresh rate monitors to synchronize your Nvidia GTX 1060's frame output for seamless/smooth gameplay), then consider this:

    AOC - G2460PG 24.0" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor ($394.32 @ Newegg)
  2. I would say a majority of people would disagree with what I'm about to say, but at 1080p, I find 27" to be a sweet spot. I will admit that 1080p on smaller looks sharper, but for me, at a comfortable seating distance, I find 27" at 1080p to be more ideal.

    If you can get a look at monitors either that a friend owns, or on display in a store, of different sizes, I would highly recommend doing so. I admit my eyesight isn't as sharp as many other people, but seeing varying sizes at 1080p will let you know what feels right to you.
  3. I have 20/25 and à lazy eye. I usually sit farther away. Two people at best buy suggested à 27 inch va279 h ips. Looking for max gaming compatibility. Is 1ms response the best? Ips good?
  4. Best answer
    I don't know that particular model. IPS generally gives better viewing angles, and I think 1ms is about the fastest there are, but usually IPS I think are not that fast.

    On the other hand, if you think about it, if you're running at a 120Hz refresh rate, that's one screen refresh every 8.33 ms. For that reason, a really low ms response time doesn't quite sound like it should mean as much. However, I am *NOT* an expert by any stretch of the imagination - I was using the same monitor for almost 6 years.

    I think my vision is 20/50 or so.
