Hey! So I'm looking for a monitor to replace my ghetto one I'm using
Nathan R.
good afternoon and welcome to Newegg! can I help you with a gaming monitor?
Yes please
Nathan R.
ok, what specs are you looking for?
Well, I can tell you what games I play, maybe that'll help you help me?
I really like SC2, WoW, and a few steam games. I'm not much of an FPS player.
I don't really need something with that much of an extreme refresh rate, but somehting to enjoy the scenery to the games I play
And probably something between 23"-26". As long as I can fit it on my desk
Nathan R.
ok, that makes things easier - what resolution are you looking for?
Um...someting that won't tax my gpu that much. I'm just throwing a number: 1680x1050 is good I guess? Screens for computers are not my forte of knowlege

Okay, would you recommend an ASUS product over BENQ? I've heard good things about both. Mostly BENQ since that's what they advertise themselves as: the gaming monitor pros
Unless you're not allowed to say, then the info you gave is fine
Nathan R.
Both ASUS and BenQ make great gaming monitors - BenQ has the edge on price but I generally find the build quality on ASUS monitors to be better
Okay, that actually helps a lot. Now, would you recommend a TN panel, a VA panel, or an IPS panel for the kind of games I play. Again, thanks for your opinion
Nathan R.
IPS all the way
crisper picture, better viewing angle, better color reproduction
okay. I assume then like leftover motion artifacts might be a problem for them? I was thinking IPS too.
Nathan R.
yeah, TN panels can have problems with light bleed and artifacts at times
Mmkay. This is great. Thank you so much!
Nathan R.
you're welcome! glad I could help out!
