Hey! Are you interested in a new gaming monitor?
whats the best gaming monitor i can buy for 500 dollars that is 27 inches or larger
Jesse A.
I recommend checking out BenQ
thanks man!
Jesse A.
No problem. Let me see if I can find a good one for you :-)
ok cool
Jesse A.
are you looking for any specific features?
not really sure man... kinda new in the gaming thing and really just want the best monitor i can buy for about 500
Jesse A.
I gotcha
A couple features you want to look for are low response (1ms) and a high refresh rate (144hz)
thats what i kinda figured.... just a standar display port cable will be able to handle that?
Jesse A.
lets see..
Yes, it does have display port
awesome... lets say i go up to 600 dollars, can i get a better monitor
Jesse A.
That does open up some options
or woukd i be better off going with a 4k tv with 120 hz refresh rate
like a samsung 40 inch
Jesse A.
It seems like a good idea, but 4k HDTVs still have high lag (over 4ms on low-end models)

For gaming, a gaming monitor is defintiely where its at
what would u suggest for 600
like i say it can be larger than 27 inches
Jesse A.
Let me take a look. Sorry for the delay!
your good man
Jesse A.
thanks
im just chillin tryin to figure this all out .... theres a but load of options out there
Jesse A.
Cool. Is the primary use going to be gaming?
pretty much ...
Jesse A.
ok
i just built a 3000 dollar computer with you guys and it kinda sucks im limited to 600 for the monitor .... but o well
im running a GTX 980 if that helps
EVGA
Jesse A.
Oh I gotcha. Well 600 is quite a bit for a single monitor. Especially paired with a 980
take your time bro
looks pretty sick i gotta say
Jesse A.
Ya, Samsung makes some good stuff too.
hmmmm .... not to keep u on here all night but do u have maybe one other option
Jesse A.
This is also an option: http://www.newegg.com/Product...
It's no problem! :-)
ok lemmie check it out
Jesse A.
Ok!
Its an ultrawide monitor
When it comes down to it though, I still like the first one I posted
that is pretty sick as well ... you think theres any issues with the games running with that aspect ratio
sense its so wide
Jesse A.
games that don't have the option to run in that resolution will simply run in 1920x1080 with black bars on the side. Not really an issue
u probley cant answer that
Jesse A.
Games that do support that resolution (such as GTAV) will look amazing in that ratio.
i bet
what about asus?
Jesse A.
ASUS makes some cool ROG monitors.
but id be spending more than 600 huh
Jesse A.
In this case yes. But it is marked down from $900
and ur sold out :-(
Jesse A.
Aww... Yes it is
dang
Jesse A.
Do you already have a monitor?
im running a 40 inch samsung tv with 120 hz at the moment ...
Jesse A.
Oh nice!
but was wanting a sick monitor for a secondary monitor and for lan parties and what not
Jesse A.
Oh ok
this tv sucks to pack around to friends houses
lol
Jesse A.
I could imagine.
its great sitting here in my office tho...
like to just keep it there lol
Jesse A.
I still really like this monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product...
awesome .... well i greatly appreciate all your help, you have helped me out alot
Jesse A.
I'm glad I could help you pick out a new panel! :-)
thanks bro! good night!
