Recently many people have been asking this controversial gaming question: “What’s the big deal about gaming monitors? Why would I need a gaming monitor? Does it matter what screen my game is on?” Believe it or not, it does.
Even though all new video games come with dazzling graphics with adjustable picture settings, as a gamer you want to make sure you’re experiencing all those amazing graphics have to offer.
Sure, if you’re playing an MMO you can always lower the visual quality to compensate for lag and slow gaming speeds, but why do that and miss out on all the game has to offer? Most avid gamers already made sure that their video card can keep up with these graphics and if that’s the case, they shouldn’t need to lower their picture settings.
So how do you get that expensive, custom computer with the hightech video card to be worth the money? Three words: Quality gaming monitor – and please choose a half-decent model like the asus vg248qe ips.
If you fronted the money for that video card, don’t let it go to waste. Get yourself a proper gaming monitor so you can enjoy the amazing display your friends are always talking about and, beyond that, so you can enjoy the game without lag! Not many people know that the monitor’s refresh rate matters when gaming.
Sometimes it isn’t your internet connection at all, it’s the speed that the monitor is able to process at and the fps it is able to compute that effect how fast or how slow images come to you while gaming.
You don’t have to drop and arm and a leg to get a quality gaming monitor. Your friends were right about the benefits of having one but they may not be right about getting one. Many people get them online, as that’s where the fancy ones that cost thousands of dollars and have wall-to-wall mounts are located. However, you can get quality HD gaming monitors from places like Wal-Mart or Best Buy for cheap.
Of course, if you are willing to put up the money as you did for your other gaming devices, I’d recommend buying from the same place. There are few better feelings than having a matching controller, keyboard, custom computer and monitor set. It will truly make your gaming space feel more complete and make the value of each individual item really stand out.
I understand that for many people their gaming computer is also their personal or work computer so they may feel strange about dropping extra money on a gaming monitor. Gaming monitors are useful for that kind of thing, too! Many people double their monitor as their work monitor or their movie monitor because of the crystal clear imaging, adjustable mounts (that are now fairly common with these monitors), large screens and adjustable picture settings. It’s a great investment not only for gaming but for your every day monitor needs.
So, what’s the big deal about gaming monitors? They are versatile works of art with great multipurposed value.
