How can you seriously game on something that small?


If his desk situation is configured so that the screen is close to him?

Isn't that obvious?


I used a 50" tv that is situated 6 inches from my face.


That's pointless to do. If one did then one would only see about 30-40% of the image at once. Its a waste really do that.

Hey twisted26, a week ago I was in the same position as you and I did a lot of research because I like to research online before spending my hard earned money. I came across a site called best-gaming-monitor.com and some youtube vids and ended up buying the BENQ XL2420TE and I'm very happy with it, it was a bit expensive but it was definitely worth it!

Hope it helps!

Whats your PC specs?

Because theres no point getting a 1440p/144HZ monitor if you can't handle those settings.

Oh wait... are all 1440p monitors 500$+ atm?

And I think I read PS4/Xbone are optimized for 1080p only?

Any other suggestions for a monitor under 300 bucks? Im reading that the 1440p resolution isnt optimal as most games wont scale well to it
