Choose a gaming monitor with the right screen size
Choosing a PC monitor is different from choosing a television. Since the monitor is usually positioned directly in front of the user and there is a shorter viewing distance, you quickly lose overview when playing with large displays. Depending on your preferences and what you use your PC for, a monitor size of 22-24 inches is usually ideal for gaming. Some users with sophisticated requirements may choose a gaming monitor with a screen size of 24-27 inches. If you want a monitor for gaming, resolution is more important than size. Pixel inaccuracies and blurred images don’t take long to spoil your gaming. Your games become more impressive with a 27-inch gaming monitor. This size is particularly recommended. If you sit a little further away from the screen. With a larger gaming screen, you can even enjoy true 4K Ultra-HD resolution, which is displayed at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. For many gamers, a monitor that supports Full HD is enough, equivalent to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Remember, the higher the resolution of the screen the monitor natively supports, the harder it is for the graphics card in your computer to guarantee a high refresh rate at all times, even in complex gaming situations. Choose the gaming monitor which is best for your requirements.
Which refresh rate do I need for my gaming monitor?
The recommended refresh rate depends on the type of games you usually play. For gamers that typically play strategy games, a standard 60Hz refresh rate is more than sufficient. This is also recommended for more casual players. If you prefer quick-moving racing or first-person shooting games, a gaming monitor with up to 144 Hz and 1ms response time is recommended.
If you want a powerful 4K-144 Hz gaming monitor with G-Sync, the rest of your hardware must be extremely powerful and able to keep up. In addition to an excellent graphics card, 4K monitors also need a current processor, sufficient RAM and an SSD hard drive.
The response time is an important feature of a gaming monitor
The response time of a monitor measures how long it takes a pixel to change colour. The lower the response time, the better it is for the player. Especially in action-packed games, the images displayed on screen change extremely quickly. If the monitor is too slow to display these changes quickly enough, display errors will occur. A good gaming monitor should have a response time of 10 milliseconds at a minimum. However, many of the latest models are much faster and reach speeds of 4 ms or even as low as 1 ms. A shorter response time means that you will experience fewer annoying streaks and influences on screen.
