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.

A: Gaming PC monitor, IPS or 120hz?

120HZ: Amazing in FPS games. Only 'works' if you give it more than 60fps from your GPU, which with a GTX670 you'll be pushing it in the latest games..

Games look really fluid on 120Hz and are more responsive to mouse movement. They are also only 24inch 1920x1080 resolution.


IPS: They look really pretty, have amazing colors, have wide viewing angles. Usually are limited to 60Hz (Yamakasi Catleap OC ones go higher), have a lot wider variety of recolutions and sizes.

Hi everyone!

My current specs are as folllows:

Intel i5 3570K (Stock)
ASUS GTX 670 DCII (Stock)
GSkill Ripjaws 2x4GB

Currently gaming on a Samsung SyncMaster B2030 20" monitor. The resolution is only 1600x900 @ 60Hz.

I was thinking that I should pick up a new monitor to justify the rig that I've built. I have been looking at 24" monitors that have a resolution of 1920x1080. Now, here's the dilemma. I see a lot of 120Hz monitors and people saying that they are much better suited to gaming (especially FPS, which is what I usually enjoy). Upon researching a bit, I came upon the BenQ XL2420T. It's quite expensive but I might just be able to pick it up if it's completely worth it. So here are my questions:

1. Has anyone had any experience with the BenQ XL2420T and what are your views?

2. Is 120Hz worth it and will there be any noticeable difference?

3. Will my single GTX 670 be able to handle it? Just for perspective, I run Crysis 3 @ a little over 50 FPS average with all settings Very High, FXAA and Transparency AA enabled in nVidia Control Panel. I'm also open to OCing my GPU and CPU (using a Corsair H100).

4. Any other suggestions?

Look forward to your responses.
 

A:Monitor advice -- 120Hz worth it for gaming?

The 670 will be able to give you those 120 fps in less demanding games, however you may end up turning the quality and resolution down for the more demanding titles (such as Crysis 3). So you have a choice, sacrifice image quality for more fluid game-play, or get an IPS monitor, which will give you much superior color, but you'll have to live with 60 fps. (In my opinion, 60fps is enough, although that's a matter of opinion)

Im really looking to replace my 19 inch widescreen LCD with a better monitor. My current one has a res of only 1400x900 so I need some suggestions on an HD, 1080p 120Hz monitor, 22 inches or bigger for my gaming. I love playing with vertical sync on to rid myself of tearing in games and a refresh rate of only 75 is too slow for me. I realize the human eye can only see around that I think but having an old CRT monitor years ago that went to 120hz I noticed a big jump in my gaming. Plus it just looked prettier and smoother with all options on and no slowdowns lol. Also having HD will make the colors pop more too I believe. Thank you to anyone that can help me with some suggestions on what to get.

I'm using an LCD screen that has an inbuilt DVD player. I guess it's basically a T.V. but I use it for my PC.

I've got my resolution set to 1600x1024 and Windows 7 tells me that I can go up 120hz, but when I choose it the input is not supported.

I understand that VGA Monitors can't support 120hz, but I'm wondering why it says I can use it?

My NVIDIA control panel says I can go up to 85hz, however.

The lower I set my resolution = the more hertz Windows tells me I can use, but I still can't use more than 85hz.

Anyone able to explain this to me? Thanks.

Hello,

I have a few days ago received this monitor.

Samsung S23A750D 23" 120Hz

I am using it with a Gainward Nvidia GTX570 Phantom GPU via DisplayPort cabling.

The trouble I am having is that the monitor has great trouble picking up a signal from the GPU when the computer has gone into sleep mode or been switched off (at this point I can get a signal to the monitor). It's only when I turn the computer back on and then the monitor that I get no signal. To get a signal I have to remove the power cable and put back in or sometimes remove the DP cable and put back in.

I have tried not turning the monitor off (the monitor goes into a sleep mode when the computer goes into sleep mode) but on putting the computer on it does not pick up a signal.

It is only by removing the power cable and/or DisplayPort cable will I get a signal. And this is intermittent.

I have tried upgrading the firmware from Samsung but this hasn't helped.

Any ideas?

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.

What kind of difference in viewing pleasure will I notice between the 60 and 120hz lcd tvs.

I already have hd setup through my provider. Just need a little help with this. Any help is appreciated.
 

A:60hz vs 120hz?

There are some pretty neat things about 120hz displays. First, you don't have to worry about 3:2 pulldown since all you have to do is display each unique frame 5 times (24*5=120). This gives your video a certain smoothness (you probably won't see it from your cable box) that is hard to explain in words - you just have to see it. You'll need a good source though, bluray or hd-dvd.

Some people complain about the look of such sources on a 120hz display because it makes everything look like it was filmed with a camcorder. It's very noticable to me, but a few people I've had look can't tell the difference at all. I suggest you go to a store and see how you feel about it first hand - and make sure they hook up a decent source when you do this testing.

2560x1600/1440 is strictly the province of 60Hz. Dual link DVI -the connectivity for most (if not all) 2560x 1440/1600 screens (27-30") would probably run into bandwidth problems trying to provide 120Hz 32-bit colour at that resolution.

Latest Drivers for Graphics Card installed ? and the Monitor is also correctly recognized under it's official name and manufacturer.

Problem: highest possible and selectable frequency with Windows 8 is 85Hz (and not 100Hz/120Hz (depending on screen size) as in Windows XP) ...

How to set 100Hz and 120Hz as in WinXP (with same screen sizes)?

A:Not more than 85Hz with CRT Display able to run 100/120Hz

Is there a reason you're still holding onto CRT displays? They've been out of production/out of style for a good 4~6 years now and are quite limited in resolution and aren't widescreen. That said, 85Hz should be plenty speedy enough as it is. If you can't select higher, it's probably because windows or your graphics card have not detected higher. Are you using proper drivers? You may need a driver for your monitor (there's a few cases where this is necessary and CRTs are connected via an analog VGA cable, which does even less to communicate information back to the PC about the monitor's capabilities). If you're using nVidia, you could also try setting a custom resolution with the refresh rate in mind, and see if it takes it.

I've never seen a person using a CRT with any machine that can run Vista, 7, or 8 so I don't know if perhaps they limited the selectable refresh rate to 85hz in the post-XP era...

A:120hz resolution issues

I think that's normal, your games are 3-D capable so when you swtich to 120hz then it can use 60hz for one signal and 60hz for the other signal. Videos and regualar display are not 3-D capable, there is just one signal so at 120 hz its just going to distort.
This differs from 120 hz HDTVs where the signal is the same 60hz (or very close to it) but the HDTV interpolates that signal, placing a made up frame inbetween two real frames, its not actually driving the signal at 120hz....except for 3-D televisions which have the same capability as your Viewsonic if they receive a sterioscopic signal.

Is this an impossible setup? Why? Thanks!

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

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.

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

I want a large lcd to play games and watch movies (as well as other computer tasks)

This one seems awfully cheap for $430 for a 32" :
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=PLTV32-R&cat=MON

Is it worth the extra $170 for this one with better specs?:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16889022022

I've seen a Protron (Ultra) 32" and I noticed no problems with it, It wasn't as bright or responsive as my current 19" widescreen lcd but It looked alright. I always hear bad things about generic brands.

Will there be a noticeable difference so great that the extra money would be well spent?

Looking for new set of dual gaming monitors. I like Samsung and ASUS. 22-24 inch is what im looking for. two monitors. Loads of mixed reviews of everything. Willing to spend around ?200 each. Any advice on whats best would be greatly appreciated.

Looking at Samsung S24A350H

or the 22 inch version.

A:New gaming monitor!

Get the Samsung 24's and don't look back. Maybe make sure they have universal mounting points for a riser stand and a possible third monitor later ! The Asus's are sweet but I would go with the Sammy's, I went with LG's and I wish I had waited for the prices to fall on the Samsung's.

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

I picked up a new LGe Monitor (L196WTQ), installed proper drivers and set everthing up.
Only...
It produces garbled desktop icons and a marquee like box around my mouse that flickers inconsistantly, images on my computer and the entire web are all completely fine.
Games like World of Warcraft are flickering, garbled, and some things just shouldnt be there. Perhaps it has something to do with the Graphics Card? I have a Radeon 9800 Pro.
Below is what I mean by "Garbled".

Could someone help find my problem?

Oh yes, my screen size is 1440x900 and at 60hrz

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

http://www.sceptre.com/Products/LCD/Specifications/spec_x9cNagaV.htm

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.
