Q: Monitor Settings for Gaming

My current Laptop has a 17" wide-screen display set at 1920x1200. I have been told that my Graphics Card would never support that display but I don't want to have to keep changing the display settings every time I want to play.

Therefore is it okay to run the game in a window set lower, say 1440x800 for example?

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.

Sorry for the long text, I'm trying to send as much information i have.

Hello forums!
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.
I've been on this forum before talking to this guy who is helping me but he's been quite busy lately so i need some extra help.
I've updated all drivers to latest, i never overheat, the GPU does not go over 51C when gaming and CPU never goes over 51C either.
I've upgraded my 650W powersupply to a 850W power supply and is one of the highest rated best performance power supplies you can find.
I tried to RMA my graphics card but they found nothing wrong with it and sent it back.

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.

The title basically says it. I'd like to get a monitor that works as a monitor with my Macbook Pro (I'll just get a HDMI connector) for general computer use, but one that is also suitable for gaming with PS3/PS4 with a low input lag as I like my competitive gaming, but also doubles as a TV, so has a tv/freeview tuner installed too.

Wasn't sure where to put this topic so went for random, anyone out there have any advice?

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.

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

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.

Let me put it this way, it can work as stated on AMD's website using a multi DP output hub.

To answer the second question though is a no you would not most likely be able to max out most games in this methodology. You will probably be able to run a game like Tomb Raider for instance at high settings but maxing out with 6 displays is pushing it.

The easiest way to do this is the only way...Basically buy the 3 way DP hub, hook up your monitors with adapters to whatever output method your choosing, then hookup the rest.

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.

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.

Alright,

Just wondering if: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007R...323051?n=507846&s=electronics&v=glance

And some more info on it here: http://secure.syntaxgroups.com/products/specs.jsp?pid=lt26hve

Would be a good monitor for gaming? I mainly play WoW and CS right now.

So I was just wondering if it would look as good, or near as good a monitor ment for the computer?

My graphics card is a bit older: CHAINTECH SA5700L Geforce FX5700LE 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card

Will my computer be able to handle this monitor and World of Warcraft?

Thanks in advance.

This has been happening for awhile but haven't pursued because I haven't been playing games and happens only when I play games. The monitor goes blank or call it a flash for a second (probably less) and can be really frustrating when playing a game. Has anyone come across this problem?

Thanks

A:Monitor blanks out when gaming

First thing I would check would be my refresh rate. It sounds like you might have it set too high for the resolution you are playing at.

I've been trying to pick out a big monitor for gaming, and my friend recommend this LG W2600H-PF 26 inch widescreen LCD monitor to me, the lowest price we found for it is a deal for $550. But I haven't tried any LG Monitor before, how do you guys think? Anyone have any experience on it?
 

A:26" gaming monitor

IMO, this is a much better deal for the same price. You'd get a bigger monitor for the same price and specs.

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?
 

A:Decent gaming monitor for under $150?

So did you buy this monitor? I use a 24" Samsung SyncMaster 245bw. I might be able to fit a 32 inch monitor on this desk though

Hi there. I have a KDS CRT 19" true flat monitor now. I like it but it really takes up way too much room. My girlfriend..(hehe yeah I know) says I should get a flat panel. I have heard lately that some of them are actually better for gaming than CRTs. I went to Frys (here in California, Orange county) and I did not understand some of this info...For example there was a Sony with the following..
Contrast ratio 500:1, Pitch .264, 260/M2, .12MS response time, also it had an extra britenes feature that is exclusive to sony it made it real brite. This monitor was 20". It was on sale for about 899.00. What do the numbers mean? What should I be looking for? What is ideal for gaming? NOW what monitors do you recomend? My price range is about 900 up to 1200. I play at 1280x 1024. I would prefer at least 19 if not larger monitor size. Also it needs to have a good picture to play DVDs as the 'puter setup is in the bedroom and girlfriend likes to watch movies in bed. If at all possible please paste links to teach me about these features and what they mean. If you have some best pics (for monitors) please post em..

Thanks way in advance.
 

A:Need help shopping for new monitor for gaming.

I'll start by trying to give a crash course in LCD.
Contrast ratio-- level of "blackness" and brightness ( sorta ). The higher the number the blacker the black and brighter. If you look on an LCD you'll notice that it's not quite black black if the contrast ratio is something like 350:1 or bright for that matter. So the higher the contrast ratio the better.
Pitch-- distance between pixels displayed. The lower the number the crisper the image.
Response time-- time that the LCD needs to " paint" the screen ( again sorta). Anything above 18 ms , you'll cry when playing ( it introduce ghosting or frame skipping).
Now if you're a true gamer ( DOOM III, etc..etc.. ) NO LCD CAN COMPETE with the good 'ol CRT. Since it seems you got cash i would suggest something like a Mitsubishi 22" Diamond Pro ( basically anything with a Trinitron tube). True, it's heavy and bulky but the pic... mmm.. like butha.. . Too bad Sony got out of the CRT production since they used to be the best.
HTH

Hi,

I am looking to upgrade my monitor for playing games like Crysis or COD- I currently have this;

http://www.ciao.co.uk/Sony_SDM_E96D__6495720

....but the colours look a bit flat compared to my 42" LCD TV and the response rate isn't great.

I am ideally looking for a widescreen 20" monitor for under 150. What brands should I look out for, which ones should I avoid?

Any suggestions/recommendations welcome!!

Cheers

Can you recommend a good but low priced monitor for gaming? One with g-sync would be cool. Keep in mind I'm on a budget.

Good evening

I recently went out and purchased a Benq rl2450H monitor with the intention of using it as an external monitor for my HP Pavillion G6 laptop however, when 5 minutes into a game of Counterstrike: Global Offensive, my laptop shut downs without any notice.

I have attempted to use lower in game resolutions and aspect ratios. I have also attempted using VGA and HDMI connections but to no avail.

My graphics cards drivers are also up to date. This problem has me stumped. It may be that the graphics card can not handle this and if it is the case is there anyway I can reduce the pressure it puts on the Graphics Card.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Anjew
 

A:External Monitor and gaming

The PC shutting down would indicate a hardware fault. The external monitor would not cause the laptop to shut down.

Typical causes of shutdowns are a fault with the power supply or motherboard. It could also be heat related, but they you would also typically get an alarm before/during the shutdown.

Below are the specs for my gaming rig. I have a $250.00 Amazon Gift Card and am thinking about upgrading to a monitor capable of 1440p.
My current monitor is 24 inches and I would like to increase that to maybe somewhere around 26 to 28 inches.
I use my computer strictly for gaming on FPS shooters like Far Cry, Borderlands, and Sniper Elite.

Based on my specs below, can I get several recommendations for a new monitor please ? The new monitor should work with my existing GPU, should support 1440p gaming, and have connections for Display Port 1.4 and HDMI 2.0b based on the connections of my GPU. I won't be using dual monitors as I plan on giving my current monitor to my wife for her home office PC.

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X
CPU: Intel Core i5-8400
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 XC Ultra - 6GB 192 bit - Nvidia G-sync compatible, HDCP 2.2, Display Port 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, DVI-D, VR Ready/Ray Tracing/DirectX 12
RAM: Gskill 16GB DDR4
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 1TB
HDD: 2TB
OS: Windows 10 Home edition
Monitor: ASUS VS247 E1LMTF110183 LED Monitor 23.6 inch running at 60Hz with a resolution of 1920x1080
Other details on monitor can be viewed at https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VS247H-P-23-6-1920x1080-Monitor/dp/B005BZNDS0

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and links to Amazon for the monitor you are suggesting.

I got 2 questions about a monitor with 7ms I'm dying of buying:

1) Is a monitor with 7ms response time good for gaming? Will there be noticeable lag?

2) Would a monitor with 4ms be as unnoticeable in lag as one with 7ms?

A:Looking for a new monitor good for gaming

Asus are fine, as are Samsung and Dell. In any case, as you are looking at TN panels, they are all about equal. Just watch for models with the "2ms" rating and you should be fine.
