New Monitor Help Please!

Recommended Posts

Hello chaps,

So I'm in the market to replace my venerable Samsung monitor with something new and shiny (and with a VESA mount - which the Samsung does not have). Having done some reading, I see that there are three main display types - TN, VA and IPS. There are pros and cons to all three of these, but which monitor/type have you guys gone for? And what informed your decision?

Acer Predator XB241H

Why?

- It's 24" can't fit anything bigger in

- It does G-Sync, which I wanted to fix stuttery in il2 1946. That did fix it, too bad we quit 1946 a few months later I think...

TN, VA, IPS? Dunno, do not really care. Yes, put them side by side, I may see the difference - but this one looks good. And if I cannot see things in game that others can, I blame my eyesight... that's the quickest "solution" 

  • Thanks 1

I like to use toms guides as a start when looking for hardware.  Search "tom's guide gaming monitor" and see what they say

Wouldn't know one screen type from another but I tend to steer clear of monitors that are marketed for artistic purposes (unless you include modelling??? websites) as artistic.

Thanks Sid but I wasn't looking to spend £500+ on a monitor. I'll check Tom's Hardware out though.
