Gaming Monitor Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, can anyone recommend me 2 good gaming monitors with low MS response time and with HDMI ports? 

 

My budget lies around 500$ for two new ones, mainly gonna use one for gaming and other for streaming. About 20-24 inch is fine, I don't mind if they're cheaper than 300$ together as long as the price/quality ratio adds up.

 

Since I have always played games on my TV as my PC monitor, I don't have that much experience with gaming pc monitors. Any feedback is appreciated

Well, how much do you reckon I should spend on two monitors?

 

As long as they are LED, 20-24 inch and 5< MS response time with HDMI ports I am content!

Before you buy a gaming monitor you should know the following:

  • TN: Good for gaming but not so good for colours and contrast
  • VA: Good for colours and contrast, but only average for viewing angles and motion
  • IPS: Good for colours, viewing angles and motion, but contrast typically weaker than VA-based monitors
  • PLS: Evolved form of the IPS technology from Samsung

Some I can recommend:

Can someone correct me if im wrong but DVI is a good as HDMI on monitor for image quality. HDMI is more TV screen because it can keep the Sound.

yes, Dvi is digital only, but provides higher refresh rate, hdmi on the other hand supports audio input/output as well but due to data bandwidth restrictions it cannot achieve higher refresh rates, although I believe work is on in making higher refresh rate hdmi's.

BUT that's just in regard to input type, for high refresh rates you need a panel as well that can score such high refresh rates. at the moment TN panels are at top with highest refresh rates available in market today <CRT's the GOD father or refresh rates>, whereas IPS panels are much more colour accuracy oriented. read ---> post #6, Ren36
