How to Choose The Right Gaming Monitor

Author:Jake | TIME:December 08,2017

Whether you are a professional PC game player or just a hobbyist, you need more than a gaming PC with a HD graphics solution. Besides, you will need to upgrade your “weapons” such as the gaming monitor. A good monitor can display the action of games or anything else and won’t present you blurred images, flicker, tearing or other motion artifacts.


So how to choose a gaming monitor that is good enough to give you a superb and immersive gaming experience? In this article we will list some of the most important factors that should be considered.


Panel Size and Resolution

As for gaming monitors, it is consdiered that the bigger, the better provided that there is plenty room. In general a 27’’ screen is able to provide a maximun resolution of 1920x 1080 pixels, with the latest models made in wide and quad HD monitors with maximum resolution of up to 2560x1440 pixels. If you have a higher demand for better experience, you can choose the 30-inch or even 34-inch ultra-wide HD gaming monitor with 3840x2160 pixels resolution.

If you have lots of space, and money is no object, a 30-inch, Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) monitor will deliver a stunning picture with an amazing 3,840-by-2,160 resolution, or you can go all out with a 34-inch ultra-wide monitor with or without a curved panel. Ultra-wide displays typically have a 21:9 aspect ratio (as opposed to the usual 16:9 aspect ratio) and offer a much wider field of view than a standard wide-screen monitor, but they take up a lot of room. A curved panel ultra-wide monitor has just enough of a curve to make you feel a bit closer to the action


Pixel Response

What is called a good gaming monitor should offer a fast pixel response. Now “gray to gray” is the most commonly used pixel response spec that is measured in milliseconds and signifies the time it takes a pixel to transition from one shade of gray to another. The lower the pixel response, the better because a low pixel response helps eliminate the smearing of moving images and it can offer a smoother overall picture. A gray-to-gray response of 2 milliseconds or less is ideal, while a 4 millisecond response is good enough for gaming.



Refresh Rate

While talking about refresh rate, we mean the time (per second) it takes to redraw the entire screen and this is measured in Hertz (Hz). A 60Hz refresh rate is common in most LCD monitors - meaning the screen is refreshed 60 times per second. If you want better images, the refresh rate should be higher, for example, a 120Hz.



Video Inputs and Other Features

A good gaming monitor should be designed to have a variety of video inputs, which allows you to stay connected to multiple PCs and gaming consoles such as the PS4and Xbox One. Dual HDMI ports are ideal, since major consoles use HDMI, while some high-end graphics cards offer both DisplayPort and DVI connectivity. In addition, there should be multiple USB ports to connect to mouse, controller and so on.
