    Exclamation Looking to buy a new Gaming Monitor

    Hey guys.
    I am seeking your advice once more. I am looking into buying a new gaming monitor.
    I've been looking all over, but every time i narrow the list down the monitors always have pros and cons in different areas.
    Can anyone recommend me a good gaming monitor? Price isn't much of a problem since most monitors are around 300 dollars. So monitor between $300-350 would be good.
    I am looking for a monitor no less 24' with a resolution minimum of 1920x1080.

    I personally really like the ASUS monitors as they have great specs.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tamaziuk

    That's what I thought, but when comparing all of their different models each one has things that would make me buy it, but not one that has everything best out of all their monitors.

    Which ASUS monitor do you recommend? For gaming purposes.

    If you are going to be using the monitor a lot for games ..
    I would look for a monitor with a low response time .. less than 5ms ... more like 2ms .
    This would help stop ghosting of images during game play.

    I chose this monitor, but before I buy it I wanted your opinion. It's a 23 inch monitor. I wanted a bigger monitor 24-26 arrange, but I could not find one single monitor with the same or almost identical specs. Do you guys know any?

    Thanks!

    That is a very nice monitor

    1" will not make that much of a difference compared to a 24".
    If you go larger the response time will drop due to the size of the panel unless you pay a lot more money.

    Response Time : 2ms .. Great for Games
    Resolution : 1920x1080 Full HD 1080p Support .
    Connections : D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI with HDCP Support
    Speakers : 2x2W nice to have ... but I would use more powerful 2.1 speaker or higher setup.

    This monitor can also be used wiha a Xbox360 or PS3 ....

    I just bought the new Dell U3011 which is a 30" widescreen LCD with 2560 x 1600 resolution, Fantastic colors, and gaming at 2560 x 1600 is truly amazing.

    What to you plan on running for a GPU ? I noticed that section blank on your system specs.

    Right now I have an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT, which is a bad GPU haha xD, but I am planning on getting the geforce 580 or 2x 570

    Depending on your budget, the U3011 is a outstanding monitior, but it's also very expensive. I bought mine through Dell on sale for $1350 with a 3yr warranty, I added an extra 2 yrs on the warranty for a $100.

    Where are you located ?

    I really like my Samsung SnycMaster SA350 27in. Looks great for games. Only downside is it has an HDMI and VGA connection, but no DVI. I got it for $309 plus tax at Costco. Great deal compared to other 27in LED monitors.
