...23 inch monitor is perfectly good for gaming...what did you guys say on this...
PS:- or if you have any another good option then prefer me as well 🤝
I'm happily writing this because last month I learned a bit about monitors and made my first gaming monitor purchase! I am now the proud owner of a Acer Nitro XF243Y. It's a 24" 1080p IPS monitor with Freesync Premium and a low response time and maxes at 165Hz! It's amazing and I love it. Currently running it at 144Hz.
So for monitor size it comes down to two things I would say: what is available on the market for the resolution you want
, and how far you sit from it
I would suggest a 23.8"/24" for 1080p and not exceeding that since the pixel density decreases above 24" for 1080p, like for example on a 27". So the text on the screen will look more crisp with a 24"/23.8" monitor compared to a 27"+ size for full HD resolution. But also how far your monitor is from your face depends too. If you're like 2 feet away than a 23.8/24" 1080p monitor is great. If 3+feet away maybe a 27" 1080p monitor would be better.
For 1440p resolution monitors, most on the market comes in 27" size. These look great since they have the highest pixel density compared to 1080p monitors, but you best have the GPU power to push those extra pixels. If you usually customize your gaming experience to reach 60+ fps and often play at 1080p because you need to, meaning your GPU is lacking that 1440p 60+fps punch, you might want to stick to 1080p monitor b/c people think that playing a game at 1080p on a 1440p native resolution monitor makes for display artifacts like the image being blurry for example. I don't know how true this is or whether it has changed.
I don't have much to say on 4k monitors since I game budget and 4k is super expensive
On whether you want IPS or VA display technology, VA is supposed to have darker blacks but there's more blur on it when motion is on the screen versus IPS which has less blur due to having faster response times, though the contrast ratio is lacking on IPS. However I found that the image looks just fine on my IPS monitor compared to another VA Panel monitor I tried. The VA panel monitor had richer dark colors but I prefer the faster response time since I've had 10+ years of experiencing slow response times on non gaming monitors.
Main reason I upgraded from my 27" 1080p monitor to this 24" 1080p monitor is because the 27" was too big for how close it sits to me(2.3 feet or so), and this 24" has crisper detail since higher pixel density, and this new monitor offers height adjustment which is freaking awesome since now I don't need to look all the way down like with my old monitor. Slim bevels are a plus too
A note on freesync if you don't know, Nvidia GPUs can utilize Freesync too and not just AMD GPUs so that's awesome.
But yeah that's all I have. I recommend the Acer Nitro XF243Y monitor. I'd wait for it to go on sale for $129.99 and lower since I bought it at that price
I used the rtings winter 2022 catalog for best budget monitor to base my purchasing decision on it.
