IPS/psl gaming monitor suggestions?>

Kevfactor 535 19 December 2, 2015 at 10:44 AM
I'd like to get a good 120hz gsync monitor for both gaming and graphic design. The problem is I'm unsure what to get. Some monitors fit the min requirements i want(low lag, 120hz) but the reviews are terrible. I see issues such as quality control, eye strain issues ect. That leaves me unsure what to get. I'd like to get to the 120 hz range. Also using an ips panel on my laptop, i'd really like something that looks as rich as that for both gaming and graphic design. Smilie

Size, Budget?

IPS should be good for the graphics design side of things, at least have a wider color gamut, much better viewing angle and less eye strain. Something in the back of my mind says thought that generally IPS displays are a bit slower. The real question is can you actually tell a difference both in the refresh rate, and herts.

What are you considering?

120Hz + IPS + G-Sync = $$$$

They are available, but it depends on your budget and GPU. Are you using this for gaming on your laptop? If so, you probably don't want to go higher than 1080p.

I would go to TFTCentral and check - they do a real in-depth testing and Simon, the author, is really nice and I trust him
He also tests PWM and flickering and stuff like that

One of the recent Dell monitors was pretty good

size is mostly 27 inch, budget probably dont watn to go above 450 if i can help it. if it's a good deal or something i splurge some more on it.


seen some models get to 4ms. can live with that. i really want to get to 120fps for gaming reasons.. i play a lot of lol and im sure it's even smoother at higher fps rates. Smilie

Update your original post with that info. It's important.

You might have to drop more to get it below $450. Asus PG278Q is exactly what you're looking for but it's $750. The Asus MG279Q drops G-Sync but is still $600. You might be able to get what you want with a ~24" 1080p monitor, but 1440p would look a lot better.
