Just a few people know about me but I am a really big gamer.
Unfortuantely I love PC games instead of console games. Why is it important? Because the console is so much cheaper.. You just need to buy the console for $500 and everybody have a big smart tv, and thats all.
It is a little different with PC. You need to buy up-to-date hardwares (not to mention that constinuous upgrade) because the needs of games.
The processor, the rams, and of course the video card..
But if you want to take all advantage of your strong computer (which was a couple of thousand) you need a serious gamer monitor!
The same thing happened to me – and I want to choose a good monitor for gameing.
I think a lot about the size, 24” or 27”?
I also use my monitor for work! Finally I decide to buy the bigger 27”.
What I definitely wanted is the 120 hz or better refresh rate. Nowdays a lot of manufacturer offers these kind of monitors, but unfortunately they not the cheapest models.
I check all the review sites and seperate test, but I was really confused.
Then I finally found the www.thebestgamingmonitors.com page which was a really great help for me!
And the right model for me the Iiyama Prolite GB2488HSU-B1. The price tag was suprising because it was just 232 pound. Which is not so expensive for an 144 hz refresh rate monitor, right?
And I not was staisfied with the price but the performance of the monitor is also really-really great!
I recommend the website which was a huge help to me for you also, if you searching the best monitor for gaming!
