Monitor for locked 60fps gaming

Hello guys,

I have a gtx 750 and i3 4130. Very soon I will be upgrading to i5 4460 and gtx 960 4gb strix. I also have a dell s2240l which is a 7ms monitor and gives me somewhat of a jittery gameplay with very slight hint of motion blur and poor ips bleed.

I checked out a few websites and forums and discovered that the BenQ rl2455hm is a highly rated monitor for 60fps gaming because of its fast 1ms response time, contrast and ability to produce smooth images. So I am thinking of getting this monitor with the other components. Do you guys think that the switch will offer me benefits and improve my gameplay?

What are your opinions?

Thanks in advance to all who reply.

  1. Don't upgrade the CPU, just the graphics card, infact you should be able to afford a 970 if you don't upgrade the CPU as well. The response time "7 ms", doesn't mean anything whatsoever. The motion blur is because your monitor is running at 60 Hz. IPS bleed is unfortunate but there's nothing you can do, as it's a defect. The RL2455HM is horrible, I don't recommend it. Get either the

    All other monitors will be a complete waste of money, their opinions doesn't mean that they're right. The contrast is among the lowest possible on the market, and the "1 ms" response time has nothing to do with producing smoother images, that's entirely up to the refresh rate, framerate, graphics driver, and game optimisation.
  2. I'm pretty sure the colors of it are quite bad, the RL2455HM. I would prefer a 5ms IPS 60Hz monitor over that any day, one that has good deep blacks especially.

    The GW2470H has to be the best looking monitor I've seen in ages. It looks so good, shame It's no IPS though.
  4. Yeah, but VA is really catching up in terms of viewing angles. On the TV market that's hilariously inaccurate, but as far as monitors are concerned, people aren't really using their monitor from the other corner of their room diagonally. But I agree with you, if someone buys a 60 Hz TN, they're making a mistake. That was only a thing when IPS and VA you paid a premium for, now a few IPS are even cheaper than TN...
  5. I have a LG 1080p monitor I got at one of pc worlds the end of season sales, it was £90 and it totally fine, never had any issues.

    What are some of the best monitors you have seen or would recommend for gaming(60%), photoshop editing(light) (20%)and movies(20%) on a lower budget(max $250).

    Hey mate, thanks for the quick and elaborate reply. However there are some things which I would like to clarify.

    1) Why do you recommend me not to upgrade the cpu? Don't you think that the gtx 970 is bottlenecked by i3 4130.

    2) How is the experience at a constant 60fps ips/va for gaming? Do you think that 144hz makes a significant difference for gaming over 60fps when I am not into competitive gameplay?

    3) What would be the best monitor you would suggest me solely for gaming and some light editing and movies?

    4) This one is silly but do you mind that if I ask you any further clarifications?

    Thanks btw.
  8. Hey guys just found that acer xb240h(non gsync) is in the same price. Do you people recommend it?
