What's your ideal monitor size for gaming?
I'm quite fond of my 30" 2560x1600 display.
Many Bothans died to bring you this post.
If you want to play competitive: 21.5"
If you want to take online somewhat seriously: 24"
If you are going for fun / single player: 30"
I have been using a 37" for years, switched to 27" but moved it closer so the view range is exactly the same. Honestly the bigger the better. If they made a 1400p tv I would go with that. I like the all-in-one of being able to have my PC and cable on the same display. Although now I guess I can dual monitor between the tv and monitor. I was thinking about setting my monitor real low and then putting the TV above it. The audio on the monitor is the worst I have ever seen, can at least use the audio on the TV for when I watch videos, or just move Netflix over to the TV.

Sit in a recliner XD Its about 5 feet and its fine. Yes 10 inches is too close though. Eyes suck?

6 inches? From the screen? WHAT THE HELL?

I'm pretty much stuck with 24 inches as the max.
My desk is pretty small

I have a 27" 1080p monitor and love it but I hate how my kids 22" 1600x900 monitor has a sharper image so I think early next year going 27" 1440p would be perfect.

I game fine on a 24", but I could definitely see a 27" or 30" monitor being better after I get used to the size.
The largest I used for my PC was a 32" TV but that was 720p lol, I put it in my bedroom for a short time after my old monitor's backlight burned out.
I would like to see how a 21:9 screen would look for gaming. I like the idea of the added horizontal space making it more immersive. A 29" screen of that aspect would be slightly taller than my current 20" screen. I do want to watch movies and do programming with it as well.
