Alright, I have an announcement. But first I have a question.

Post by Erik on September 25th 2011, 6:43 pm

I have recently received a small amount of money for reasons I have only disclosed to certain people and I intend to keep it as such.

As you all know, I quit Combat Arms due to a horizontal tearing issue. Which is monotorial. Now that I have the means to purchase a new one that wont tear, I feel it is time to start browsing.

I need help on what to look for, what would be a best-case monitor. I don't want to spend a LOT of money, so I am capping my budget at $200.

Make suggestions please. If I get a new monitor I will return to Combat Arms. (With SyntraGen.)

Well from my research I have determined that LED monitors are less likely to have tearing issues so preferably that.

I really stop reading the word "Care" with a capital as being directed at me. So confusing sometimes. (inb4bantforhavingtoobigaego). Also, a tearing issue? Are sure you can't solve it with vertical/horizontal sync (I can't remember which one's which). Also, try a Acer X243HD. I have one, it's pretty good, but did cost a little over $300A, but it's lasted long enough to make it worthwhile

$200 will get you most monitors, so try and get:
- an LED monitor
- lag time between 3 ms and 1 ms lag [5 ms is too much for gaming LOL]
- video port that is compatible with your computer [adapters are not worth it and I believe they increase the lag time] plus others if you want to run another system off of the monitor [say PS3/XBOX]
- 16:9 aspect ratio, probably going to look for 1920x1080 resolution. 16:10 aspect ratio isn't horrible, but 16:9 is standard
- at least 20 inches [cock size of the owner not the width of the monitor]

Speakers generally add cost to the monitor and they usually suck for anything except casual computer use. Don't dwell on it if the monitor has speakers, but it will add some bulk to the monitor which you may or may not have room for.

I wouldn't really worry about the contrast, but certain companies [like ACER] advertise insane contrast, but the colors are kinda... awkward. If you are really worried about true colors, go to the store and look yourself.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a monitor online since it will probably be labeled as fragile [adding costs to shipping] and you don't get to see what the colors are until you already have it and plug it in. Stores like Best Buy and Staples have a very wide selection of monitors and you will most likely find something that you like and is in your price range. If you only want to make one trip to the store and get the least amount of sun possible [LOL] then do research on the stores' websites and come in with a list of the monitors AND their online prices [just to make sure that you're not getting jewed into paying more].

Vertical Sync causes tremendous mouse lag in games for me...

Oh and thank you Red. This helps a shitload. I think my lag time on my current monitor is 5 ms.... I'll have to check.

The new display is well-suited for gaming due to its fast 16ms response time.
LOLOLOL IS THIS THE 80's or something?

I do agree with what Redi said though, I would not recommend buy a monitor online. Its much better to go see one in the store. When it comes to monitors: seeing in person > anything else.

Bought one online was, color quality was horrible. Sent it back and went to the store the next day to buy one. Viewing angle is great and the color is very good.

I was intending just going to Best Buy or even Costco to get one. I don't mind if the colors are not great, Costco has a good return policy when it comes to electronics as well.
