    I'm in the market for a new monitor upgrade from the one I have.

    Currently, I have a BENQ GL2440 that's served me faithfully for the last four or so years, but now it's time to upgrade to something with a higher frame rate.

    Looking for a reasonably priced, good brand monitor that can do 120fps or more, with 24 inches of screen space or larger - preferably with a non-upscaled resolution (ie. 1080p in a 27").

    "But @hyp3rstrike , human eyes can't see anything above 25fps. It would be a waste"

    You're lucky I like you, otherwise I'd be tearing you to shreds. :p

    I call bullshit on that fact though, as I can definitely notice the difference between 25, 30, 60, and 120 fps. 25 -30 is stuttery as fuck, 60 is smooth but when it drops lower than that by a few frames, you can definitely notice.

    120fps doe... its like touching your face ever so smooth and glorious.

    I wouldn't know. It's out of my price range. Hopefully there's someone here with the knowledge you're seeking. Who's our Tech-Yoda?

    Mmh I can't help you with a precise model, but what you're searching for/should be looking for:
    - Good refresh rate (because you want it)
    - Good reactivity (that comes handy in fast games where every millisecond count)
    - Matt screen (bright screens usually offer better colors, but it's subject to light reflexions and it sucks)
    - Contrast and luminosity values
    - GSync or Freesync if you can, because it's apparently a plus (Gsync if you're Nvidia, Freesync for AMD). I think Gsync screens are a bit better though. Basically, those technologies allow the screen to sync at the framerate the GPU can output, but Freesync screens can usually only get to 40Hz or so, and it depends on the constructor while Gsync has some obligations, so the lowest framerate is like 30Hz or something.
    - View angles. Be careful of the view angles
    - Acceptable colorimetry can interest you if you do some drawing/modelling stuff

    But basically, I think you'd be better off googling "120Hz gamer screen comparison" and read a few series of tests on different websites if you want some good info ^^


    Also, the "Glorious PC Master Race" was first used ironically (starting at 0:50 of this video http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/22-The-Witcher )
