Yes, it has to be a monitor. The only space issue is height.
Here's the setup. For the past few years I've been using and extremely happy with the Dell Ultrasharp series of monitors. I have the 2405FPW on my Ubuntu rig and my primary system is running the 2408FPW.
I have never actively noticed input/output lag... but I'm starting to wonder if the panels I use aren't contributing to the sometimes 'sluggish' sensation when I am playing FPS games. At mid to long ranges I am fine, but if the action is close and personal it always seems a bit floaty and I generally lose to the guy that suddenly popped into view.
So I would love to hear any recommendations for a brand/model of monitor that you have or are using that is low lag while still providing decent picture quality.
I have done some research on this topic, but would love to get some recommendations or personal experiences from the community. I have a few panels already in mind, but am curious to see if the same names pop up on an open-ended question.
To be attached to a Radeon 5870 HD via Displayport. (For Bluray, but I could shuffle that to a secondary display if Displayport introduces its own lag.)
1920x1200 or greater.
My main concern is image quality + speed.
I'm hoping to use this as an excuse to try out mounting arms vs stands for my displays, so compatibility with standard adapters would be nice.
Pricerange is flexible if the value is there.
Help me twitch gamers! You're my only hope!
Am I crazy?
Is any ol' TN panel good enough these days?
