Monitor recommendations. What's good?
I didn't see a general "Awesome monitors" thread, so here's one.
Currently, I've got an alright 22" Acer, plus an old Samsung 19" 4:3. My wife's looking for ideas for an anniversary present, and I thought maybe I could point her at a new monitor.
I think I'd like something with an IPS panel. Input lag would be an issue, but I don't really play twitch shooters much, and I'm terrible at them, so I don't think a small bit of lag would bug me. I'm thinking something in the 23"-24" range would be fine, and I really don't think I want anything over 1080p resolution. I prefer higher settings for effects versus a crazy high resolution. Price point would probably need to stay under $200.
I'm kind of curious about the ultra widescreen monitors. I like the idea, but the problem is that my computer's pretty old at this point. Getting one of those now means I wouldn't really be able to game on it until I get to build myself a new computer, probably at the end of the year. It'd be awesome though.
Aside from that, feel free to use this thread to post any cool monitors, or show off your sweet/ridiculous/Matrix-esque setups.
