720P? 1080P? 4K?
Choosing a monitor shouldn’t be difficult right? Well, like me you may come to find that is one of the most difficult tasks when creating you PC setup. As I dove into the world of monitors I found that some monitors could even be as expensive as my build! Not only that, there was a load of selections from some high end gaming companies I’ve never heard of! Don’t worry though, I’m here to break some of it down for you.
The first and most important thing you first want to consider is; What graphics card do you have? This simple question can cut the time you have to spend looking for monitors down from hours to minutes. If you spent a lot of money on a high end graphics card your going to have to get ready to open you wallet again for another high end monitor and vice-versa.
Now that you know what you graphics card can do you’ll have to find a monitor with a corresponding refresh rate and resolution.
Also, I’d like to recommend a dual monitor setup. This is both for gaming and working. A dual monitor setup allows you to multi-task with ease as you don’t have to constantly switch between tabs in a browser or different programs.
One of the biggest questions in PC gaming is what is; How many Frames Per Second can you PC pump out? But the other side to this is; What is you monitors refresh rate or Hz? These go hand in hand as the refresh rate of your monitor is the amount of times your monitor can pump out a new Frame Per Second.
