Probably this one.

u/Ludies203 · 9 pointsr/buildapc

Hey all,

Does anyone have any advice on picking a monitor?
I know I want sub 5ms response time, 1080p, I don't need built in speakers, it should be 23" or less, and no more than $150.

Is something like this [Asus] ( any good for me?

I'm running 4670 and 760 and intend on playing BF4, Civ 5, XCOM, etc.

Thank you.

The screen is 21.5" inches (

The trackball itself doesn't function that great ( I could only get it to work with AdvMAME. The handful of trackball games are set to use this emulator. Also, I may or may not have mounted it upside down and not realized until later. Fortunately you can reverse the X/Y axis so it wasn't really an issue. I wish I would've used a higher quality trackball, but I'm not sure it would've fit in this cab.

Thanks for the kind words!

u/RC_5213 · 3 pointsr/xboxone

My monitor of choice. Excellent price point, great performance. No issues whatsoever with my 360, PS4 or One.

u/Jgautier123 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

My old super cheap solution that I passed down the little bro. Not very fancy but it gets the job done and he'll certainly upgrade to a 144hz later.

u/CrypticCube · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I have this:

u/suckaplz · 3 pointsr/thinkpad

T430 owner here - upgraded everything. I'm a developer by trade but also do a ton of spreadsheet work - things like scalability projections, cost/benefit analysis, budgets, etc.

Personal opinion time: the 14in sometimes feels small for this. I have a couple of LARGE monitors at my desk and if I'm doing even moderate spreadsheet stuff I prefer to work on my numbers there. If you're planning on utilizing JUST the laptop screen I would suggest the T430 100%, however I would also suggest budgeting for a larger monitor for use back at a desk for serious work!

I would suggest the 8G RAM for either as it will run modern Windows better - even on Win7 I have noticed a huge difference going from 4G to 8G of ram. Also everyone will tell you SSD is a great idea - these laptops do VERY well with a couple of simple upgrades =D

You may be able to save yourself some cost by buying something that doesn't have the upgrades yet and doing the labor yourself if you're comfortable. There are an insane amount of articles, videos, etc. for cracking into these things if you're comfortable doing your own work.

One other thing - 10 key. I would suggest getting a nice keyboard with a number pad for home too. I don't know how much data-entry you'll be doing but I LOVE the ability to 10 key when I need to!

My overall suggestion:

  • ($250-300 USD) T430 with 8G of memory and SSD
  • ($100-120 USD) 21"-ish monitor - something like this
  • ($55 USD) Mini-dock
  • ($80 USD) A nice keyboard with a number pad like this
  • ($20 USD) A nice mouse for desktop use like this (free scrolling mice are super nice when working with long spreadsheets imo)

    PS: I also REALLY suggest the screen upgrade - it makes a HUGE difference and I found mine for around $40 USD. I feel that it was really worth it!
u/HowWinterKills · 3 pointsr/DemocratsforDiversity

When you get into lower inches they tend to not have HDMI ports

so here's a 20 inch one and it's a really popular one

u/flyoddd · 3 pointsr/Monitors

Both monitors you linked are TN panels. TN sacrifices color production and accuracy for refresh rate speed. Out of those two I'd buy the BenQ but here are some alternatives that may fit your web design background better.

Asus VS228H-P:

LG 22MC57HQ-P:

Phillips 223V5LSB:

What I would look for is an IPS display, and under 100 dollars. Here's a good list of displays that are under 100 you can look through.,192001080&X=0,10732&sort=a3&page=1

I am by far no expert so take my advice with a grain of salt.

u/ilikesleep · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well, you said gaming, but I'm not sure what games you'll play. If it's not something that graphics intensive, you could just get a space saver all in one this It's now as powerful as tower PC's but saves so much space.

Otherwise, try this Tower you may want to swap out the power supply or video card if you really need to hardcore game, and combine it with Monitor

u/YahwehFreak4evr · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Couple questions, hopefully it doesn't scare anyone off:

Does anyone know any comparable cards to the Sapphire Vapor-X 7970 GE. It's at the price point I'm looking for and has the power I'd like (multiple monitor set up and hopefully crossfire some time next summer).

I purchased this monitor, however I kind of regret getting one at 60 Hz. Is there a definite difference between 120 and 60 Hz? If so are there any monitors that are particularly good monitors for eyefinity?

And lastly a stupid question, the above monitor has a resolution of 1920 x 1080, does that then mean that the ideal resolution for a multiple monitor set-up for that would be 5760 x 1080?

u/22jk · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I got 3 of these there cheap and amazing monitors. I have no complaints and you can't beat the price.

u/Lhumierre · 2 pointsr/buildapc

ASUS VS228H-P, Since you mentioned your eye is on 1920x1080p. I have the 23 inch version and this one is attached to my daughters computer.

u/Wtf_socialism_really · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

When I get my new monitor I think the Crysis series will be one of my first playthroughs. I'm making a pretty big upgrade in monitor tech, from one of these if I recall correctly to one of these (though screw that rising price).

I'm pretty hyped in the color fidelity, refresh rate and GSync in particular, and the 1440p is just going to hammer all that home.

Crysis is gonna be super enjoyable, I think. From start to finish.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/starcraft

I just did a quick search, the monitor you linked seems to have came out a long time ago, and is a bit expensive for that price.

Looked at the bestsellers on Amazon, this monitor looks like a much better deal. If you want a 24 inch, they sell it for the same price as the monitor you linked.

u/RMPC · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I believe that newegg is selling a sapphire 7950 for 189.99
Also there are much cheaper optical drives
Essentially the same monitor

u/polopollo85 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I used to play WoW on a 2013 15 macbook pro till 2 weeks ago.

I bought a new desktop from a friend. Really powerful to me.

  • Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5/3.9Ghz
  • 16GB RAM DDR4 3000Mhz Vengeance
  • EVGA GTX 1070 8GB
  • SSD 480GB Corsair Force LE
  • And Watercooling (even if not overclocked, as I don't know yet how it works)

    Now that is amazing, it is like I play a new game. (Going from 12-25fps to 90+, and I think WoW is limiting to 100 by default. Anyway).


    My problem is I borrowed his monitor. From what I see, it is a ASUS VS228H-P 21.5" Full HD 1920x1080

    And for those who played WoW, it feels "smaller". My knowledge of screens is limited, but I think when I run WoW on the macbook, the resolution is 2880x1800. I feel I can't go to a smaller resolution.

    Another friend told me "if you are gonna do gaming, you need this monitor". But all I can see is the same "1920x1080" resolution.


    What is the advice from this community for a good compromise?

  • I am looking for a 27'' screen.
  • I've heard of 4k. By browsing here and there I found this one which is definitely high end budget to me. People said that under 32'', everything feels "tiny".
  • In a 1st time I'm gonna play WoW on it, then I'll do more adventure games like the Witcher, Tomb Raider, Skyrim, etc. Anything that will be release and be awesome on the "adventure" side. I do not plan to do any MOBA or FPS, I'm too old for this :) My aim is just to play and have fun, not going to the competitive side of games, just enjoying chilling adventure games that I missed by having a mac.


    I start to feel overwhelm by browsing topics I am not familiar with yet (remember, I come from a all-in-one macbook). I need enlightenment, I plan to buy a new monitor around black Friday (in sale or not, $200 would be preferable, definitely under $400). If you guys have heard of a similar situation, and could tell me something like "Yeah I have a similar story and went with this monitor XXX, I highly recommend this to you, {you don't need 4k, you need 4k}, the fps above 60 {matters, not matters} for what you seek for, the price is just {$250, $450 but really really worth it, $350 right in your range!}"
u/mohabu · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Amazon also has a 10 dollar rebate on that monitor which partpicker seemed to miss.


For $3 more: dual channel advantage 2x4gb - 1600mhz

For $4 more: Microcenter is having a good sale on a better mobo ASRock H87M Pro4

u/Whycanyounotsee · 2 pointsr/smashbros

any benq/asus monitor made after 2014 is the best. you could spend $300+ to get the newest monitors but seriously just buy a $80 benq/asus that supports 1080p+60fps if its just going to be used for netplay. It can also double as a current gen console monitor.

edit: make sure your computer is compatible. if your pc only had DVI/VGA output, don't buy a monitor that only has HDMI input.

here are some you could buy


benq - note you can select a 22inch monitor on this page and get it for $90. Most pro gamers play on 20-24 inch with some using 27.

you can also get some good deals on ebay. a lot of people like upgrading to 120/144/240fps or higher res after gaming for awhile so you can pick up their old perfectly fine monitor.

you can also visit displaylagdatabase website. It has a list of a good number of monitors (literally 100s but theres like 10,000+ monitors so), so if you see a cheap one you like you can check it on here to confirm. Asus and Benq's major niche is the gaming monitor so that's why you can't go wrong for them

u/fuzzymarmalade · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

It is worth it to upgrade your monitor, but I think you should save up for a good one instead of waste 50 bucks on a bad one. is a good one for the money. It is more than $50 but [this] one is good for the price and I stand by what I said before.( but I stand by what I said before

u/deardeergod · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I got the Asus VS248H-P 24-Inch Full-HD LED-lit LCD Monitor last year and have been pretty happy with it. The only complaint I have for it is that it does not move up and down, only tilts. It has DVI, VGA, and HDMI ports but only comes with 3-foot DVI and VGA cables. I have been using it with HDMI and it looks great after some minor fiddling with the settings. I bought it used for ~$100 and was very happy to see it come with the protective tape still on. Would recommend.

u/The---Technician · 2 pointsr/suggestapc

Get this CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A2 Desktop Gaming PC and this ASUS VS228H-P 1080p monitor. With a powerful Intel i5-7400 3.0GHz processor, solid AMD RX 480 4GB graphics card, 8GB DDR4 RAM and 1TB 7200RPM HDD, this PC will run Civ VI and even more powerful games, very well.

u/ScubaSteve7886 · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

This is pretty much the cheapest new PC (with a monitor you can buy)

At this price point you may want to consider a prebuilt.
This will be molasses slow, but will work.

And toss in a cheap monitor.

u/supernova6831 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Here, this is mine. It's the top monitor on Amazon because of it's price. Just remember to set the refresh rate from 50Hz to 60Hz when you first get the monitor.

u/Mildcorma · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Honestly that build is spot on for what you want to do with it!

Only thing I would change is look for a better monitor for just under $100. Something like this?. This monitor has been the highest rated for years. Been voted the best monitor for < $100 a good few times now. Its 24" counterpart is also only $25 more but is just as amazing.

u/AlcomIsst · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

ASUS VS228H, a rather small 1080p 60Hz monitor.

u/kilogttam · 1 pointr/PS4

Look online. Most stores will probably be priced within $250-300.
Amazon has some nice deals;

And don't take my word for it (and if I'm wrong I hope someone corrects me), but I've been told that getting 1080p on a screen that small is pointless because the human eye can't discern the difference between 1080 and 720 at that size. A monitor of the same size but 720p would only cost you a little over $100.

u/MobyDiglett · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm trying to keep it as close to $1500 as I can, but I do already have this monitor. My main concerns here are future-proofing and high gaming performance.

u/CaptainFishSticks · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'm not sure what kind of budget you're on, but this is the monitor I'm currently using. 1920x1080. It was my first true HD monitor, and I bought it as an external for my laptop.

At the very least, it's a good start.

u/lvluffinz · 1 pointr/PS4

Hahaha that last monitor you linked is what I actually ordered yesterday. I realised I didn't NEED the 3D and found it on Amazon here: thanks for the advice though :)

u/Dannysia · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I've had this monitor in 21.5 inches for a while, it's 1080p 60hz but no gsync/freesync. Sorry if I'm late. It's $110 so I think about £75. There are options up to 27 inches (about 2/3 of a meter)

u/LesBeHonest1 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Does anyone have any recommendations to stabilize a monitor? I've got this monitor, and I've had it for nearly a year now. The base has always been a little unstable, but nothing too awful. Yesterday I got another monitor, so this one has shifted to the left - now, though, everytime I type (I have a mechanical, so I'm typing a little heavy) it shakes. That part of the desk is slightly less stable, but this is a little silly. Any ideas on how to stabilize it?

u/Thor395 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Personally my brother doesn't care about the mouse or keyboard but what do you think of this monitor. It has good reviews and my friend who owns one says its great too. I don't want to go overboard with the monitor because I'm running low on funds.

u/jackityjack · 1 pointr/buildapc

I bought the Acer 144hz monitor you're referring to, based off the excitement and recommendations of the folks on /r/buildapcsales.

Prior to that sale, I also bought this monitor.

This is my first build, and I don't need dual monitors and am not ultra competitive in FPS games. However, the 144hz monitor was only $15 more than the 60hz, so it seemed like a no brainer.

Now I'm wondering if the 144hz isn't such a great idea. I want my $1000 PC to last a while and keep up with the current games. It sounds like if I try to keep up with AAA games with the 144hz monitor, it will require a stronger build than sticking with the 60hz.

Can I run the 144hz monitor at 60hz or will that be an issue? I need to decide which monitor to return, any insights would be appreciated!

u/kickingpplisfun · 1 pointr/worldnews

I recently got a 22" monitor and it's pretty nice(for context, I've never owned an HD monitor before), although I don't remember the refresh rate(it's not listed on Amazon, but I found it elsewhere).

u/tichdyjr · 1 pointr/FL_Studio

I have two 21-inch monitors on mine and it plays very well with FL since you can detach windows and move them wherever you need them. Also, it improves ALL productivity and will make you settle for nothing less in the future.

EDIT: it's [two of these exact monitors] (

u/TFiOS · 1 pointr/buildapc

I bought three ASUS VS228H-P 22-Inch Full-HD 5ms LED-Lit LCD Monitor about a month ago, I'm loving them and had no issues so far. They come anywhere from 22 inches to 27 inches.

u/AvastYeUpboat · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm not an expert by any means, but maybe get 1600MHz memory instead?

Also, your current case does not look like it has good airflow. May I suggest a Rosewill CHALLENGER mid-tower? It will be a bit more money, but it should be worth it.

Your PSU will be able to handle everything. Hell, you can probably downgrade the PSU to a smaller wattage (650 watt?), if you're not worried about doing a lot of upgrading.

I'm not sure about the motherboard, since it got very mixed reviews on Newegg (lots of reports of it dying). It should be fine with a warranty, I suppose!

And your card will be fine. Personally I like EVGA. I have an EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti and I love the thing.

For ~$750 that's not a bad deal at all, imo.

Good luck on the build and maybe wait for a second opinion on all of this.

Edit: One last thing. Your monitor is iffy. It looks like it has a low resolution and contrast ratio. Also, no DVI or HDMI input. Something like 1920x1080 and 50,000,000:1 is preferable. I use one of these.

u/Mattmax059 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace


Thats an Asus.. Mine is Samsung.. I dont know what the exact specs are aside from it being 1080p and having a 70,000:1 contrast ratio as every article Ive read has conflicting specs.

u/lexiconpsu · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Hey, I don't know if you're still looking for a monitor, but I found this link on amazon. It's pretty cheap and there's an additional 15% off at checkout. Hopefully everything turns out alright.

u/neonicblast · 1 pointr/buildapc
It is this monitor, I managed to connect via the DVI cable however, is there a difference in performance between the dvi and hdmi ports?

u/ZebraMuffin · 1 pointr/PS4

I've heard of some people using HDMI to component, or HDMI to RCA cables, but I'd imagine the graphics would look pretty bad.

Your best bet is to purchase a cheap TV, or a monitor that supports HDMI, like this.

u/thebadshepperd · 1 pointr/buildapc

Unless you're planning on trying to overclock that poor E6550, you don't need an extra CPU cooler. The one it comes with will do fine, and that Zalman isn't a very good one anyway.

You can also get significantly better monitors for only like $10 more.

Edit: What about something like this?

Monitor is 119.99 with Amazon Prime but you should consider this or this.

The XFX GTR is hands down the best aftermarket rx 480 (check reviews online) available. It's usually near $300.00 but there is an ongoing sale that helps you save $50. So it drops to $250.00 (which is a steal imo).

I'm not usually one for rebate as it takes a while to receive and by then you'll usually have forgotten about it as well so you'll feel that the price is without the rebate. However that's just me, do as you see fit.

Decamarks didn't include windows 10 with his build? It's included in mine. With Rebate and maybe switching of the monitors, you have about $30-50 for an extra SSD of 120 GB for your OS to run off of. I suggest this if you can fit it in your build.

As for the Memory, I went for the cheapest while still maintaining decent ratings, (there are cheaper memory sticks out there). For the PSU, I went with Seasonic as you do not the 750w with the build unless you are planning on SLI in the future. I kept your case the same as that is entirely up to your personal preference. I hope this helps.

Edit: Also if you want a more popular mobo (the one I have in the build currently is fine ), consider this. But keep in mind, this will push the price to the budget of $950 . Counting rebate and everything.

This is what it would look like with the SSD and the Case Fan but it goes a little bit over budget with the HP monitor.

u/Sheffield178 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Wow, thanks for this list! How important is IPS? I found this monitor which has everything you listed except IPS.

u/miniadu3 · 1 pointr/buildapc

This monitor doesn't have built in speakers, but is a bit cheaper and bigger. Not IPS, but great viewing angles. I actually have one that is supposed to come in today. Top selling monitor on Amazon. If you don't need the webcam or built in speakers, then this wouldn't be a bad bet.

It's $157 ($170 if you're in one of the few states where Amazon charges tax) and there is a $20 mail-in rebate. I know this sub doesn't promote rebates really, but it's still just under your original cost w/o the rebate.

Here is the 22" version of that monitor which is a bit less.

u/1ibertyordeath · 1 pointr/buildapc

Oops sorry.

Forgot the link. Definitely get that hard drive though.

u/goldenyoshi · 1 pointr/buildapc

Adding on to already made changes by others.

Get this Asus Monitors instead of the Acer ones. Definitely higher quality and a bit cheaper with rebate. They were actually $105 after rebate just a few hours ago but back up to $120 now.

u/ItWasInstinct_ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That is not a 1080p it would work but I wouldnt recommend buying it. I would however recommend these two.

I can't really point you to some big great peer reviewed monitor book but I can make a recommendation. I have this monitor and its been great for the two years I've had it. It's not even half your budget however but unless you want to spend more money for 144hz and stuff this is just a good nicely built monitor with great colors and its strong. No dead pixels in the two years I've had it and the stand is pretty sturdy although there isn't much room for adjusting the screen and rotating it. Looks good in my opinion. If you do get it (or any other monitor really) look up some guides on color calibration to get the best settings.

I'm using this monitor

The colors are great and the size is just fine for me. The speakers are pretty quiet, but I use headphones, so it doesn't bother me.

If you want to do my build with a smaller price point, two very easy places to shed ~$100 is with a cheaper case and PSU. I wanted a good PSU because I have trust issues with them and I wanted the air 240 because the case is the only part I really have to look at. There are plenty of awesome cases and PSUs each at the $50 price range. Let me know if you need recommendations.

The monitor is this one. But I bought it ~3 years ago; so, I don't know if it is still a bargain monitor. (No speakers BTW)

Yeah, even if you put your TV into game mode, the delay is still pretty nasty.

THIS is the one that I'm currently using and I love it.

I mean, it might seem like I'm lazy, but ASUS monitor's are reliable. The ASUS VS228H-P 22-Inch Full-HD 5ms LED-Lit LCD Monitor has full 1080p display coming in at $130 USD.

u/Millennium24 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Would there be a significant difference between a 100$ monitor and a 200$ one? I'm thinking of getting this one

u/illuxionist · 1 pointr/buildapc

You can't go wrong with ASUS monitors.

Here's a 144Hz monitor.

And here's the one I currently use. It's not amazing, but it'll do the job just fine.

u/GTPC · 1 pointr/buildapc

I have that monitor (VG248QE) and I can honestly say that it is a fantastic monitor. 144Hz is damn smooth and I honestly couldn't go back to 60Hz. If you play lots of fast paced games it'll make a significant difference. It's a TN panel though, and the viewing angles aren't as good as my previous IPS panel.

Now, you can instead get a 1440p 60Hz Korean panel for around the same price. It's not 144Hz, but a GTX 970 should be able to handle most of those games turned up at 1440p and still get good framerates. Benchmark link.

If it were up to me, I'd pick a 1440p monitor over a 144Hz one any day, but do consider if the games you'll play will run well on a single 970 at 1440p. On the other hand, consider if the games you'll play run at high enough framerates that a 1080p 144Hz monitor will make a difference.

If you want a more basic, cheaper 1080p 60Hz panel, I can recommend you the ASUS VS228H-P which was my previous monitor. It's nothing special, but it's IPS and 60Hz.

If you're thinking, "por que no los dos?", there's the ASUS ROG Swift, a 1440p 144Hz monitor, but it's hella expensive and hard to get.

Monitor Help

Why is this Asus that offers a 1080p display, 21.5in, and 5ms respond time for $136.99 more than this Acer which offers the same only it's $99.99? Am I missing something? My gut tells me to go with a product that has over 4,000 reviews, but my head tells me to save money.

u/mtp341 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Look for a 21-23 inch asus or acer monitor. I have this one: and it's a beast

u/iPRiCAN0 · 1 pointr/PS4

There is this 21.5" Asus 5ms monitor for $104.99 with a $10 mail in rebate. So you would be paying $94.99 if you turn in your rebate. So far I am liking this monitor. Amazon link

u/zixmanroll · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm thinking about getting a monitor to hook up my Dell XPS 13 to. Which one should I get? I was looking for monitors sub $150, and these four are what I've found so far:

Acer R240HY


HP Pavillion 22CWA


My thoughts about the monitors: I like the VX228H for dual HDMI (it'd be nice to be able to switch between laptop and switch without unplugging and switching cables from the monitor every time, but not having it isn't a dealbreaker), the Acer and HP both look nice too (I like me some small bezels), and the VS228H-P I'm not too sure about.

I plan on using this monitor for general use, slight gaming, and with the switch, so nothing too crazy.

ALSO, to connect the laptop to the monitor, do I have to buy this USB C to HDMI cable to connect the two? Or is there another, better way? Thanks!

u/GinkoWeed · 1 pointr/Monitors

Acer for $89.99

Best for the price I could find in the few minutes I've invested in this.

Edit: This HP one for $89.99 has more and better reviews.

Asus for $106.47

Technically over your price, but if you can't afford the extra $6.47, I would recommend going for the Acer, or just saving up.

u/holyjacoby · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yeah, I don't really know all the specifics as I'm not well versed in building a pc, since this will be my first one. I have this monitor . I want to achieve playing high end games smoothly, I can buy a new monitor if that will help?

u/trashcan86 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Three of these:

IPS is pretty nice to have for editing, though. I suggest you save up for this:

u/NotALicensedDoctor · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

My current monitor is an Asus VS288H-P and it doesn’t have speakers built in so I bought a $30 pair of external speakers from Walmart. I don’t have a headset yet but don’t really have a need for them as far as I see, I’m causal enough to not be that picky about sound and being able to hear everything little detail from each direction.

$200 for a mouse and keyboard seem fair, thanks for the heads up.

I can get a license from my college for “windows 10 education” for $15 but I have no idea the difference between that and regular windows 10. Thank you!

u/The3rdLetter · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Here you go. Full 1080p, 5ms Response Time, 1x HDMI slot, decent contrast.

But to be honest, a monitor is a very vital part of a set up and unless you simply don't have a monitor, then I'd advise you to save up at least 200 and check r/buildapcsales daily.

You're only going to end up buying a new monitor in the near future by limiting yourself to such a low end monitor.

u/ghostrunner1 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

ASUS VS228H-P 21.5" Full HD 1920x1080 HDMI DVI VGA Back-lit LED Monitor

Probably not the best monitor, but I've been happy with my triple set up using them. They're also not super heavy IMO, so you dont have to worry as much about how you mount them

u/indefinitekarma · 1 pointr/buildapc

What's your budget?

I have the Core i5 2500K and its an overclocking beast. Throw in water cooling, (I have a Corsair H100i) and you can hit 4.5Ghz easily. You've got plenty of ram, I would get a GTX 770, maybe a new PSU if necessary (minimum 600W) with this monitor:

u/Ftpini · 1 pointr/wiiu

What about this one? 22", 1080p, HDMI, and a headphone jack. No speakers, but you could plug simple speakers in via the headphone jack.

u/UseTheCoasterYaPleb · 1 pointr/buildapcforme
u/SuperBattleFranky37 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

the 24inch is 150, or 130 after a rebate and the 21.5 is 90 after rebate. I have the 23 (they're out of stock) and it comes with HDMI, DVI, and VGA

edit: should add that I've had it 7 months and dropped it about 4 feet twice, still works like it did the first day

u/Killbo_Baggins · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Asus VS228H-P/VS228 21.5-Inches Led Backlight Widescreen Computer Monitor

It's a 21.5 inch Asus. They're nothing special. 1080p, low response time, and decent looks.

u/jennaburr · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm moving into my new apartment soon and am figuring out the best place to put my desk/PC setup.

I have a "dining room" that's between my kitchen & living room, and I could put it there. There is an open doorway (standard size) between the dining room and the kitchen, would I have to worry about any cooking stuff (I dunno, steam or anything) messing with my PC if it was a room over? It's tucked behind a wall, so not right in the doorway or anything.

Also, is it bad to have a monitor facing a window? I have this monitor. Is the sunlight gonna be bad for it or the PC or anything? (very new to PCs, forgive this haha)

u/YourAsianBuddy · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Some of these monitor elitists are saying $120 isn't enough for a good monitor. Fuck that, I got a beast ass ASUS monitor for 100 bucks, and it's absolutely amazing. If you're on a budget, and not a hardcore FPS/competitive gamer, you can just settle for a nice 60 hz monitor for around that price range.

u/e60deluxe · 1 pointr/hometheater

there are plenty of monitors that do that, including a 5 or 6 year old samsung that ive got. that wasnt even expensive. it was like $200 in costco 5-6 years ago. today, i expect the majority of the monitors with HDMI to have it.

here's a super cheap one that does:

u/Sfm_masterish · 1 pointr/tf2

Here is my full set with literally everything including controllers if you want to play PC/console like for only $600. This is probably the best bang for your buck and i Ben looking around for parts for couple of weeks now.
( for good prices)
Mouse: $12

Keyboard: $25

2x Joysticks ($20)

Headset: (ear buds for the wiiin)

Windows: First get a usb stick.
Then download the installer from here:
Then you put the installer inside a 8 gb usb stick. Then you follow the instructions the installer tells you.


Gtx 1050 ti ($150)

(USA Link) -

Intel Pentium G4560 ($82)
(USA Link) -

Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR4 ($70)
(USA Link) -

EVGA 430w ($35)
(USA Link) -

WD Blue 1tb ($50)
(USA Link) -

Thermaltake Versa H15 Case ($40)
(USA Link) -

I always wonder what people thing of this set, I call it "you just wasted $300 on a console" build.

Edit: everything is bran new, you can probably get a good 100-200 off from used parts. Enjoy the build, it can run AAA title no problem but won't get any of that 4K stuff, gets pretty much any title at high-medium at 1080p 60fps or more. Maybe less on new titles like wolfEinstein

u/TheGreatAxio · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I bought this for my 3rd monitor from bestbuy of all places on sale for $79. Here it is for 100 but maybe look around for it and maybe you'll get a cheaper one. It's pretty solid, nothing amazing, though, but it looks great on your desk.

u/ArrowheadVenom · 1 pointr/buildapc

Should I get this cheap but fairly good-looking Acer monitor:

or should I shell out just a bit more for this ASUS with way more reviews and thus a slightly higher rating:

The Asus seems to be more popular, but I can't find any particular reason to pay slightly more money for it. I've heard Acer is a good brand.

u/ToLongDR · 1 pointr/footballmanagergames

I use the monitor listed below:

but I think it's the UI that really makes the difference. The normal one drives me up the wall.

It's the Skin listed below:

I mainly love it for the 'just black' screen

u/TimeTravellerSmith · 1 pointr/buildapc

You don't need a $200+ monitor to have an enjoyable gaming experience you know. Something like this would work just fine.

But yes, gaming wise everything would look ok. There are some differences between TVs and monitors but if it's a big TV and you're sitting back on a couch gaming you probably won't be able to tell the difference by much. I hook my computer up to my TV all the time for movies and games, and in college I used it as a second monitor for work. The only thing that doesn't work very well is that it's 720p but 26" it's not ideal, but works.

u/Fuck-It-I-Tried · 1 pointr/buildapc

For size, price, and resolution this is the best option.

u/Sayakai · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Probably this ASUS twice.

u/LHS66 · -1 pointsr/redditblack

I've got two of these The 24" ones. If you need one I could part ways with one of mine.
