Decent gaming monitor for under $150?

Q: Decent gaming monitor for under $150?

The cheaper, the better.
I don't need a large monitor. I don't care for them in the slightest.
19" is what I'm shooting for. That makes it 4 inches larger than my laptop's already decent (for me) 15 inches.

And even if I did want a larger monitor, I'd have nowhere to put it.

I was looking at this model: ASUS VW193TR

It has a lot of good reviews, except one guy who had a bad experience with it.
I'll take that as an isolated incident.

A different guy mentioned that it wasn't for gaming.
I could understand that maybe it doesn't excel at gaming, but I don't see why it would be bad for gaming.

The refresh rate looks decent, and the response time is within the 2ms-5ms gaming range.

Is there something I'm missing?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Is this a decent gaming PC?

Hi EchoX860,

I'm not a gamer but I will voice my opinion. First of all, I don't see that combination as an overpowering rig but I do see some good and some questionable things if I were buying it. First off, is the price, I think it is too high if I were buying it and I can easily see where one could shave off a few hundred bucks by doing a self-build; however, it is understandable that one must pay for someone else to build it for them. So, here's what I like and don't like:

CPU: FX 6100 is somewhat low end for gaming IMHO but it might work (wait for the gamers)
http://www.microcenter.com/site/prod...d_bundles.aspx

16GB DDR3 - Great!

1TB HD - OK but I would rather see an SSD for boot/system drive and a larger spindle drive for storage.

GTX 640 - Sounds quite adequate but I'm not a gamer (wait for gamer comments).

PSU @ 450w - Seems underpowered for a gaming rig (wait for gamer comments).

Good luck.

I've been through a few forums, but they're all years back, prices have changed and links have expired, the specifications for TF 2 have also been changed leaving me clueless.

A:Advice on a decent/top gaming sound card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102006

Creative makes some nice cards.

Depends on how much you want to spend but I'm guessing you'd want something like 24-bit, 96KHz+ with 5.1 channels or more for what your doing. You can spend a little more for a card with 192KHz. I'm sure this will improve your audio quality but from what I hear I don't notice much difference between on-board and a sound card, I figure they are better for people who deal more with audio editing and such, just to keep in mind if you buy a 200$ card you may not notice much of a difference. For gaming I'm sure it will help as well though.

The difference between PCI and PCI Express is that PCI Express has more bandwidth, its much faster. I'm not to familiar with sound cards so I don't know if buying a PCI Express card would make to much of a difference over a PCI one.

Take a look here and you can read up on it, their is a nice chart a bit down that tells you the speeds of the different PCI slots.

That looks like one crazy build you've got anyways, lucky >;D

I'm browsing around on newegg for a new gaming headset but all the quality headsets I see in the 30-70$ range are noise-cancelling. My brother and I LAN often so I would prefer non-noise cancelling headphones (plus I find anything things that completely cover your ears to often be uncomfortable if gaming for over an hour).

This is the best I've managed to find so far : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104319&Tpk=logitech Gaming Headset G330

According to various reviews they have great comfort, mediocre durability and sub-par sound and voice quality, and are only somewhat noise cancelling.

I think the noise cancelling and great comfort outweigh the need here for quality sound and voice quality. If I'm going to watch a movie or listen to music I will use the speakers.

Edit: Must have a mic.
Edit2: Apparently newegg does not ship to Canada?

Thanks!

I have a pair of these. They are circumaural but the cushions are fairly soft, and they don't hurt my head or ears after extended gaming. They do get a little warm. They sound pretty good, but I turn down the bass a bit on my sound card so explosions don't drowned out important details I might need to find other people on a map.

newegg.CA should deliver to Canada maybe you have a different issue you're not fully aware of yet.

So I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT graphics card, it it works pretty well for the games I play. However, Sonic Generations (a game I purchased through a Steam game sale), runs slowly and gets anywhere from 18-11 frames per second. Even on it's lowest quality settings and lowest resolution (720 x 480 @ 29Hz) it's still a tad slow.

Any suggestions on an upgrade? I have a budget...I mean, I'm a college student, after all...

A:Decent Graphics Card for Gaming on Windows 8?

Two things:

You might get more responses if you gave a budget for the card.

Your 300W power supply is a bit weak for most significant upgrades. For example, Sapphire (www.sapphiretech.com) requires a 400W PSU for their cards that don't use any auxiliary PCI-E power connectors. If you need to swap the PSU, stay with the respected manufacturers (Antec, Corsair, Seasonic are usually recommended, but there are others.)

A few years ago i built a new gaming pc because i wanted to be able to play high quality games. But since day 1 i've had nothing but problems. Whenever i play one of my high quality games such as "Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3 or Primal Carnage" the monitor goes completely blank showing a "no signal to monitor" sign after gaming for between 5 minutes to up to 2-3 hours. The monitor sometimes also shows different color stripes either for examples: orange, pink or grey. The sound of my friends on skype usually keeps going for about 20 seconds before going silent, the sound of the game shuts off instantly or goes in a loop or starts with a loud buzzing sound. The fans and the LED's on my pc are still going but i can't control anything on the pc making me have to force restart my pc on the power button.

Hello, 
I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

A:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

Hi,
Im looking for suggestions on what brand or kind of monitor should i buy. The specs thay i have in mind are; 1920x1080 res, 144mhz, below 4 ms, preferrably a VA panel since I play both competitive games and solo games which graphics and color are important and in my understanding, VA panels are in between IPS and TN.

Thank you!

Just purchased a Mitsubushi 17" LCD monitor Model NXM76LCD. It has both analog and DVI input capability. My previous experienece with LCD monitors and games was very disappointing and I ended up taking them back. This Mitsubiishi unit works as good or better than my old Trinitron 19" CRT monitor. So far I've run M$ Combat Flight Sim (1,2 & 3) Descent 2 & 3 and M$ Midtown Madness. Video quaility is excellent. Native resolution is 1280 X 1024. Running it on and older Dell XPS R400, P2, 384mb SDRAM with an ATI Radeon 64mb AGP graphics card. OS is Win98SE. Tomorrow I'm going to buy a DVI cable (it didn't come with one) and see if that makes any difference.

Just wondered if any one else has tried this one out. Would welcome comments/questions.

Regards - Ray

Hi folks, my monitor blew up and I was looking at LCD monitors. I can't afford most of them, but was wondering about a couple that were in my price range. Is 21ms acceptable response time for gaming? This is the one I was checking out: http://www.directron.com/v293.html

Also found Acer one with 20ms in the same price range:
http://www.directron.com/al1913b.html

Otherwise, I guess I'll stick with CRT for now.

Thanks.

Really it's confusing, some people complain of 8ms and 12ms lcds ghosting, while other people get 25ms lcds that they say have no ghosting at all. I think it has more to do with the quality of the lcd.

Hi, some games only display in 1024x768 minimum, but their text and graphics look so small on my 17" monitor that I get eyestrain and have got to get a bigger monitor.
I think LCD's have replaced CRT's nowadays, so I think a 22" LCD would be fine, but shall I get a square screen one or a widescreen?
I only want it for playing games and flight simulations, nothing else.
Wouldn't a widescreen stretch the picure out and make it look funny?
What sort do you all use?
Thanks

Is this a good gaming monitor? It is a Sceptre brand so I guess I can trust them.

The one thing that I like about this monitor is its 16.7 colors. I guess that means it's an 8-bit monitor right? I am planning on buying from newegg.com or tigerdirect.com. I just want a monitor that has good picture quality and fast response time. Should I get this monitor or can anyone recommend one that is better?
 

A:Gaming monitor?

16.7 million colors is 32-bit. It looks like an alright monitor. 8ms is the highest response time you would want on a gaming monitor.

24 inch 1920x1080 is now the default monitor. No point going smaller. They cost <$200.

Other options include:
- Taking a risk and spending ~$300 on a 2560x1440 27 incher from eBay. Techspot has it on Xmas Shopping List.
- Spending a little more and getting either a 27inch 1080p monitor, or a productivity-oriented 1920x1200 monitor.
- Check out Dell website for more sizes and resolutions. You're gonna be paying for it, though.

Im buying this Dell UltraSharp 2209WA 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor

Its my first lcd , my lovely superbright diamondtron mitsubishi has finally bitten the dust

Ive done a bit of research and this is the monitor for me

problem is i know lcd's display best at their native resolution and for most things ill be running at at 1680x1050 , however with my current rig (and my upgrade being pushed back due to needing a new monitor) ill struggle to game at this res

so will it look/perform ok at 1280x1024 ingame? until i upgrade?

A:New gaming monitor

Hi archie

I use the Samsung 226BW which is a 1680x1050 monitor. Any game i play that my graphics card cant handle at 1680x1050 i lower the res of that game to 1280x800 in the games menu.

As 1280 is pretty close to 75% of 1680 and 800 is pretty close to 75% of 1050 its the settings i use for games like Crysis Warhead etc. You'll see when you get the monitor what is best but a setting of 1280x1024 will give you 76% and 97% of your native resulution and will make the image appear distorted

My spec are in my specs thingy. Nvidia 275 video card. Whats the best monitor I can get for around 200$? My video card can support way over 2560x1600 , how much do you have to spend to break the 1920x1080 barrier? Are they even worth it?

Also I am somewhat interested in a 3d monitor setup but they look pricey and I have no clue if they are worth it.
 

A:Best gaming monitor for $200?

Are you looking to game at that resolution? The GTX 275 will find it difficult to play GPU-intensive games at or over 1920x1080.

So this is the 2nd time this has come up so I wanted to get some extra opinions on this. Last night i was playing WAR Online, my computer had been on for most of the day and running perfect when all of a sudden my monitor just goes into hibernation. It just went black, displayed the no DVI signal and refused to respond when attempting to do anything to bring it out of hibernation, the only solution was to reset the computer Via the button. The first time i have come across this problem was actually a month ago when i first updgraded to the new Nvidia 180.48 drivers, i had been using nvidias Performance package as well for overclocking of my GPU. After upgrading to 180.48 the monitor would cut out upon starting the computer up right after windows loads i'd see my desktop background for a second, then the monitor would shut off. I knew at this time that it had to be the drivers. i uninstalled everything to do with my Nvidia drivers, including the Performance software for overclocking, ran Driver cleaner Pro and reinstalled 180.48 and have been fine now untill last night.

Im sure this is not a heat issue with my Graphics card as i was running GPUZ to monitor gpu heat after the first time it happened last night. My Gpu temps were around 38c idle and 55c max under gaming load.

heres my sys specs

Asus P5K3 Deluxe
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 running at 3.0 ghz
2gb OCZ Gold DRR3 at 1333 mhz

Dear all,

I've got a problem with monitor going to sleep while gaming. It happens randomly, it could happen every 10 min (like today), or it could happen once in a month. When monitor goes to sleep, it is not possible to wake it up with mouse or keyboard. It requires hard restart, to fix the problem. Also, when monitor goes to sleep I can still hear game sound, Youtube, etc. But cannot do anything else.

I've put power setting to high performance and put display to never go to sleep. Tried reinstall newest drivers, cleaned dusts. Even reinstalled windows to see if it could be software problem, but it didn't helped.

I don't think this have anything to do with overheating, since even when gaming, the max temp of GPU doesn't go more that 55 C. And GPU, don't go up more than 65 C. Also, nor GPU, nor CPU are overlocked.

The best bet I have, that this is somehow PSU problem, but it is weird for me, that this sleep thing happens so random. I can play game and use programs, I usually use (Firefox, Discord, etc) for a week or month without any problems. And one day it happens every 10 min, although I'm not using any other programs or not doing anything different.

I don't know if this is important, but GPU and monitor are connected with VGA connector. Maybe I should try to buy HDMI cable and use it instead. If this has something to do with connector loose or something like that.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4460
