hey I am going to be setting up a pc for my son and he will inherit my wifes monitor, an acer x213hq. Want to get something nicer for my wife.
Will be used primarily for gaming and web surfing, some videos etc, looking for something like 24" in size. Can't have bigger it wouldn't fit on the desk properly. Would like nice colors as well as a low response time.
I am really not up to date on monitors and what to avoid etc. From what I have read I think most gamers go for a tn 120hz type monitor as the IPS monitors seem to be plagued with ghosting and a high response time. I have also read that the LED backlit monitors have some bleeding issues so not sure I would want that.
Any advice peeps to get me started? Oh the monitor currently in use has 5ms response time so anything like that or lower would be fine I am guessing.
Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.
