Recommendations for a sub $300 AUD monitor?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What bloody great thing to be greeted by after coming back from holidays! Went to go play a game or two of BF4, to find my dell monitor is stuck in a constant loop of "monitor entering power saving mode" and i've done bloody everything, and i can't fix it, like everything and i've been to all dell sites etc. I don't really blame it considering it was my dad's ex work monitor and had been on everyday for 3 years, and then everyday for 1 1/2 years when i got my hands on it, it's gone pretty good. 

 

Anyway, i have $300 at the most, would prefer to spend less like $250 but $300 is my max. I would like 1080p, with the biggest size (25"+ if possible in the price range) and to have displayport, if no display port it's fine. Any brand, just as long as the base is very sturdy and wont shake much and would be good to have some height adjustability if possible. I've been looking at some BenQ's and they seem pretty good. Here's one i have my eye on: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/32460

Also, i like the look of this one if i could stretch a bit more (im selling my bicycle and mangos soon) so i wouldn't mind this also: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/32460

Any store as long as it's computer alliance, mwave and PCCG.

seriously though, i got a 46 inch 1080p for about 250 bucks a couple years ago

If you have an AMD card the AOC G2460VQ6 is a great option. It has FreeSync and 75Hz for $239


PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?
