I'm just curious as of what kind of screen people are using here to game on.
TV or PC monitor.
My TV isnt suited very well for pc gaming, ive tried it. My monitor has higher quality , faster response time,higher resolution and Hz. always have to use under/overscan.
I also play some FPS online where i prefer to use a mouse and keyboard on my desk.
Sitting / laying on the couch is much more relaxed though. Which i do with my consoles.
I do have a pc hooked up to my TV though, mainly for music and movies.
Got a few games installed , but i rather not game on that, since its got my 4870x2 (aka the Boeing 747) in it.
PC Monitor, but for my Xbox or my HTPC that I plan to build I will put it on my TV. Ridin on a 40" yo.
IPS 16:10 Panels galore do have a IPS First Gen Full Array LED LCD which I been having a hard time upgrading most new TV's are actually lacking less ports (HDMI) and cheap Edge Lit. For 3 years old I am surprised how backwards TV tech has been going compared to 3 yr old High END.
Only things TVs have changed is HZ non sensible rating of Contrast Ratio To find Actual Typical Contrast/Brightness is a pain in the ass. Most TVs touting over 120hz use a Simulated 240-480hz and not true levels. Tvs are getting lighter but so are the specs as well. unless u want a 50-80 TV then we are pretty much the same or better but if ur like me and have a limited spot for a TV. Smart TV and 3D are both functions I dont use either so hmm
Asus PM17TU 17º 1280*1024 since i bought it brand new in 2006 i think, i had lots of bigger tft 22/24 but no one beats the input lag of this one.
I have both a 50" Panasonic Plasma tv and an Asus PA246Q connected to my PC and use them accordingly.
Big Budget Action, Adventure, Single Player FPS, RPG - TV
Multiplayer FPS, RTS, Strategy - Asus Monitor
42" 3d tv
both, depends on the game in question.
My current monitor probably does:
Did you compare it to your 2233rz?
Monitor but I do intend to buy an HDTV for video watching and also use for the games I play with a gamepad.
Didn't even have to. Once I enabled it's overdrive feature in Counter-Strike: GO and some UT/Quake I instantly noticed it was a bit snappier then the Samsung.
As far as I can remember the fastest 27 inch monitors are the iiyama and the ASUS. The Benq 24 inch was a tiny wee bit faster.
Without Overdrive it's average but once enabled it's really nice. The review is in dutch, look for the "Reactietijd OD".
Ok thanks for the tips and link.
Btw thx for indirectly pointing out I hadn't updated my monitor yet on my profile xD
I'm using a 27" Overlord Computer 1440p panel capable of 120Hz plus refresh rates. Good stuff!
where are getting that mumbo jumbo from? i could think of many monitors that are better than it regarding input lag
PC monitor HP ZR30w but I would like to play some games with my TV at one point.
Any game that requires a mouse and Keyboard, my 28in Hanns-G does the job.
Any game that works with a xbox 360 joybad, my 60 in plasma.
Both 55" for action adventure and RPG + console games and three 1080p eIPS 21.5" for the real games.
