Hi there,

I'm building a rig for someone and need advice.

He's wanting a very high quality 24inch screen for gaming, within a price range of $400-420 maximum.

He'll be running either a GTX670, or possibly even a GTX690 with it.

Maybe for gaming. For photo and video editing Samsung monitors are shockingly bad, with a very limited colour range, crimped blacks and they burn too easily. For gaming, many people only appear to care about the latency, but seriously, the experience is enhanced quite a bit with a well calibrated, high quality monitor. its the same as having good quality headphones vrs great quality - I love my Senny HD650's, and you really need something like the Asus Xonar STX to run them, but once you get used to that, you realize just how bad most gaming headsets sound, not only for music, but actually in game.

I love my Dells, but they are both expensive and not designed for gaming ( although their actual latency is more accurate than the .0002 seconds claimed on most gaming displays ). I used to have a couple of smaller 22" samsungs, which were good for gaming ( the 2ms ones same as Merrik has ) but overall the Dells absolutely trounce them. Specially when you consider that the larger displays have near on double the resolution.

Got a really nice upper range BenQ here I got my father, really sharp, really bright and good colour depth and contrast, had many BenQ monitors over the years and thus far they last well too.

I used to like Samsung but they can be hit or miss as Major says.

Never favoured Dell but then really pick 5 or so main makes, benq included because thats what many Dell bits actually are, agreed often overpriced.

Monitor makers change all the time and every single one turns out the lemons now and then, many things can be bought unseen now but monitors are like sound gear still best seen first, and remember to look from your mates eyes so to speak. Have a tour of local big electronics rtailers and and see what ones catch your eye, then say just looking and buy online :D

One of my real pet hates to the point of fanaticism is gloss coatings, cheap trick to make monitor pictures look better and farkin irritating sometimes, bugs my eyes literally, I wont have them, its always matte/anti glare coatings for me.

I'd love to replace the Samsung's with something a little better and bigger but it's hard to do when they just do what they do and do it rather well. I have 2 at home and 7 running at work and they are all good except a single dead pixel on one of the work monitors. Thankfully it's not in an obvious place and if it were it would be swapped to a workstation that's hardly used. ;)
