  1. good gaming monitors start at a 250$ area. imho 1080p is the only choice.
  2. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/j6rcCJ/aoc-monitor-i2369vm

    Don't know exactly what country you are but the AOC if its available to you is a sterling quality budget screen.

    twin HDMI & audio passthrough so you can plug a speaker set directly to the monitor.Makes itudeal for running both a PC & a console .
  3. sorry..didnt see the pound conversion.")
  4. 1080P is fine. I'm from Greece by the way but I can order from a german website like mindfactory.

    So I'm between these 2. Which one should I buy?

  5. i personally never cared for aoc brand. since walmart started carrying it i never liked it. ive always liked asus. but its subjective. go to a shop to view them side by side.

  7. That particular asus isn't the one I'd go for simply because of the inputs & lack of audio pass through.

    As someone who uses a monitor for both PC & console I can tell you that picking a model with twin HDMI & audio pass through is an absolute godsend for ease of use & switching from one to the other without messing about with cables.
    I'm not saying don't buy an Asus , they're always good quality , just not that particular model.

    Then which model in particular?

    ARICH5 - the issue now is finding a physical store to compare them.
    The aoc is a really nice screen though , at a silly price .
    There is nothing wrong with that Asus , but for dual component use you're always better with a twin HDMI model .

    The vx238h - may be an little over budget with shipping
    The fact is though you can plug bother the pc & ps4 in via HDMI , switch between them at the press of a button, plug your speakers or headphones into the monitor audio out & you'll also get automatic source audio switching.
    It saves the hassle of extra cables, boxes & just makes things so so easy & convenient.
