Help please monitor selection

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone. Iam new to the forums and new to PC world in general. I have read tons of the threads on here about what monitor is best and which ones are better then others and honestly iam more lost then I was before. The amount of choices and specs out there are enough to make you go insane haha. With that said iam looking for a entry lvl monitor. I don't need the best of the best for now. Iam in the process of building my first PC. I can link all the parts I've chosen but will stick to the ones I think are needed for my question. 

 Ryzen 5 1600

 Evga GeForce gtx 1060 superclocked edition

16g ripjaws ddr4 3000

 

iam looking for a monitor that will handle mmo gams well. I've read a lot say that TN are better for games of this nature cause they are more focused on colors and resolution(maybe i read it wrong tho). My budget is 280$usd but can't see the harm in going 300$ haha. If I could keep it around 250$ I'd be happy. The honest truth is iam only looking to play one game right now. Guild wars 2 which I don't think is a FPS dependent game as much as say shooters would be. I don't think I'd need 144hz or greater but also think that limiting myself to 60hz on a comp build I think I can get 80fps solid from would be a shame. Other games will come in the future but for now and the next 6ish months it'll just be the one game. Sorry for such a long post iam really excited for my build tho and this is the last "part" I need to find before I start ordering things. 

 

Thank you again if any other info is required or would help let me know I will gladly post. 

 

PS not sure if a wide monitor would be better as I've heard they make mmorpg games more immersive

Take a look over the monitor that I have in my build:
Dell P2717H. 1080p, 27", 60hz.(pixels are visible ONLY if you are 5cm away from the display or less. It's fully adjustable and looks awesome. I bought it in my country for exactly 250$.
