Which monitor is better for gaming?

I'm having a really hard time trying to find which monitor is the best one for me. I am stuck between two monitors the Asus VG248QE 24" or the BenQ RL2755HM 27". The Asus has the 144hz refresh rate which is what the obvious choice would be for most people, or the bigger size, which I really like, of the 27" BenQ monitor. My GPU is an MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 OC 2GB. I usually play CSGO with around 200-300 FPS and League of Legends around the same with max settings. Which monitor would be better for me?

  1. The Asus is a very mediocre monitor which uses PWM dimming which causes motion blur artifacts and eystrain, as well as it has an atrocious image when lightboost is enabled. The BenQ is not so bad image quality wise, but there is no point in buying a 60Hz TN. I would like to know your budget, your viewing distance as well as your country, but given your desires and by approximating your budget, your best bet would be th LG 24GM77. It is an 144Hz monitor with back-light strobbing for less motion blur in games and respectable image quality for a TN monitor.
  2. I've been using the Benq xl2430t for a few months and it's been wonderful. It's a TN panel so don't expect crystal clear colour. The games you play aren't very colour intensive so you shouldn't mind at all. It's 144hz 1 Ms response time, with many different options. Here's a link to it if you want to research it more.

    The price range of your recommendation is a little high for my price range. I can only keep it around the 250 dollar range. Also, I live in America. And what do you mean by viewing distance?

    Your recommendation is too high for me to afford, I can probably keep it around $250. But thank you !

    Viewing distance, meaning how far you sit from your monitor.

    I cannot recommend an 144Hz with less than $300 dollars, so they are out of question. In this case, your best bet is HP 25xw. It has very clear and vibrant image thanks to its superior panel and light coating, as well as an incredible overdrive for minimal ghosting while gaming. It also overclocks to 75Hz, so there is that too.

    If you sit further than 1 yard from your monitor, consider the 27" variation, the HP 27xw. It has the same resolution so the clarity is a bit smaller, but it is a bit bigger, and other than that it is still as awesome as its smaller counterpart.
