Does anyone have the slightest expertise in computer monitors in terms of gaming? I collected the money I need for my self-built PC -- and all I need is a good monitor. My problem is deciding between 2ms and 5ms response. At first it was ridiculous to think it made any noticeable difference, but apparently it might.

And which design would you go for?: http://www.proshop.dk... or http://www.newegg.com...

The most important thing for me is to get a monitor capable of a 120hz refresh rate.

This is the one I have: http://www.officemax.com...

I would try to get a low response time if you're able to.

Good one. I must say I rule out random designs though -- they should be simple and squared. 120hz I don't care much about, since most brands with that cost well over $300. I need to pay approximately $200.

Do you think you'll pull more than 60fps?

Yes. I'm getting the best GTX 660 ti brand (from Asus), and the 660 ti is among the top. i5 3570k CPU too. And so on. I will mostly play World of Warcraft, so definitely.

I understand the refresh rate should be 120hz if one plays with an equivalent FPS. I'm not sure if it's THAT noticeable.

I may be mistaken but I thought that you can get screen tearing if you don't have a higher refresh rate than your FPS.

However, I think VSync solves this so I don't think it's that big of a problem.

The first monitor looks good.

Probably as simple as can be. Only problem with it is that it apparently might come with some pixel errors after a few days of use!

Thank you though! I'll sleep and see what I can do by the morning. I guess 120hz won't be necessary for my first real-gaming PC experience.

ASUS says that the first one, the 24" model, is a replacement for the other one. The specs are improved. The viewing modes available in the new model is a good feature. Games often are programmed with too much contrast in scenes, so it can be useful to have modes that undo that problem.

I have seen demos with a 120Hz display having every other frame black. This makes moving objects remarkably sharper. I don't understand why, but it works. I don't know if there are games with that mode yet.

Mainly WoW -- rest involves RTS, at random times a few shooters.

Good points. I think I'll go with the 24".

Najbolje je sada imati jednu figuru, i igrati ozbiljan PvP. Problem sa tome je da dosta gubis vrijeme radi mangupa koji su mentalno poremeceni. Ali dosta je smjesno kada ljudi pobjesnu radi gubljenja. Moras probati voicechat.

Ne znam, iskreno, meni je privlacniji PvE, mada nisam nesto protiv PvP-a, al u oboje je tesko stici do vrha. Moras da farmas pointse, a u kataklizmi me je nerviralo kako te ne pustaju u raid ako nemas achi, a ne mozes ni da ga dobijes posto te ne pustaju u raid (i ilvl 390+)... Meni sve to izgleda kao previse posla, mada sam dobio epic waist za PvP od Sha of Anger, i to je pocetak.

Koja si klasa? Ja igram Nelf Huntera od kako sam poceo da igram WoW.

Problem sa PvE je sto nije protiv drugih igraca, mislim - nemozes sa PvE-items igrati u PvP. Ali ja veciom mogo u svaki instance/raid kada hocu sa PvP gear. Ne bas ozbiljni raid, ali ipak.

Ja bih mozda igrao turneje i buducnosti ako postanem vrlo dobar. Vec jesam ali -- nisam dosta igrao da dobijem Gladiator.

Koja si klasa? Ja igram Nelf Huntera od kako sam poceo da igram WoW.
Prvi mi je bio Shaman -- ali davno. Onda Shadow Priest, i sada samo njega. Mozemo jedan dan nesto zajedno.

Jos malo cu da narucim novi kompjuter, jedva cekam. Imas li neki mikrofon?

I found the translations funny. Don't know why.

Ahh yes, I've been into WoW for quite some time. Even though i quit about a year ago, I still occasionally visit the forums to see what direction the game is heading. It's a great game with plenty to do, but i just burned out of it (I've played for about 3-4 years before i quit.)
