Thoughts on this budget monitor?

Looking around at new monitors since I am in the process of building my 1st gaming PC. I want another monitor because my current 720p small TV I use for console gaming on PS4 won't cut it for long. I was doing some looking around at "budget monitors" online and noticed this monitor is only $100 on amazon and has some really good reviews. Also since I play console and this monitor has 2 HDMI ports, it would nice to switch between my PS4 and PC like I can do on my current screen.

Would this be a solid monitor to use for both? My intentions with my PC is 1080p 60+fps on games.

 

I am open to suggestions on other monitors but I would like to stay under about $150 if possible because I am also trying to swing a new desk into my setup as well.... Thanks.

This seems like a good deal, getting a high refresh rate monitor at a low price is always good. The only thing is you may want to go for something slightly larger, maybe in the 27" range, but if you don't have any more budget to spare I would definitely recommend this monitor.

The words/numbers 1080p and 27 inches do not mix.

If you want to spend $50 more or so you can get a 1080 p27"monitor, or you can get a refurbished one for $20 more.

Not worth. Most people don't like pixel density on a 27" 1080p monitor. 27" is much better suited for 1440p.

Im used to playing on a 19” tv/monitor. So 24” is bigger than im used to. Let along a 27”. Also i really hate big monitors playing shooters because its hard to see the whole screen staring at the middle. You have to move your head around the screen to see say “the minimap”. Plus I only have a 1060 6gb. 1440p isnt really suited for that card.

Try playing CSGO on a 34" ultrawide ;) Yeah, that monitor looks pretty good. Bonus is that it's 75 Hz instead of 60. A 1060 should play most games quite well at that.

Ive gotten to where if i game on anything other than a monitor bigger than say 24” i get a headache from having to look around the screen especially if i sit close at desk range. Only thing i can stand on big tvs is tv, sports games like nfl, and racing games. I figured the monitor would handle my card well. I will most likely get the 22” screen and a desk for under $200. Also the screen does full 1080p not downscaled 900p res like some cheapo monitors ive seen. Sounds good. Thanks.
