What gaming monitor?

So I am currently using a dual setup of the iiYama ProLite E2480HS and they have been great but I am looking to upgrade from the boring 60hz refresh rate :)

 

I have seen the Benq monitors used by professionals and also the Eizo monitors. Please could you help me choose one (got a budget of up to £350) I want a 1ms Response time and if possible a 240hz refresh rate with that but everything else is from your reccommendation :)

There are no 240Hz monitors. 144Hz is the highest there is. Any "240Hz" monitors don't actually have a 240Hz refresh rate (i.e. Eizo FG2421)

 

Maybe look at the BenQ XL2411Z or ASUS VG248QE.

Perhaps do:  >144Hz(so 240,600Hz plasmas and so on), what does it mean? on the FAQ/mythbuster. 

CPU: Intel 3570 GPUs: Nvidia GTX 660Ti Case: Fractal design Define R4  Storage: 1TB WD Caviar Black & 240GB Hyper X 3k SSD Sound: Custom One Pros Keyboard: Ducky Shine 4 Mouse: Logitech G500

just looked on amazon. whats the benefit of having: 2x hdmi, s switch, DP & game mode. over having HDMI with no speakers?

 

edit: was looking at the BenQ one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA

I think BenQ assumes you're using headphones. Monitor speakers tend to be pretty crappy anyway.

So if I was to buy the monitor I should just go with the cheapest version (the one without speakers?) because I already have headphones

if you can afford the eizo https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-004-EO&groupid=17&catid=1851

go for it, and expect to need to hold an average 120fps and you`ll enjoy crt like motion clarity thx to the extra 120 inserted black frames

 

Or just go with anyone on the freesync/gsync list and you WILL have a good time

id recomend the 21:9`s with freesync, cant think of a more enjoyable gaming xp myself

Idk if it has g-sync or not but its supposed to be one of the best monitors for fps games? is this true?

 

 

or maybe if i feel like spending a lot more this one?

Not its not "the best" its just the cheapest.

 

Also, regarding your second choice - i dont understand - you WANT to throw away money for no reason?

Why not choose any of these three 300 pound gsync monitors?

id recommend the acer xb270ha... cuz its BIG

 

considering gsync monitor costs 300, and a non gsync one 200 - id say gsync is a must
