    Looking to get an Asus monitor (first time Asus buyer)

    My PC monitor has just decided to call it a day about 30 minutes ago. I was using a Dell ST2310, and the screen went dull on me, I think it may be something to do with the backlight.

    However, I'm now looking to get a "decent" monitor and I've been looking at Asus monitors for a while. I'll need a 23 inch monitor with 1ms response time. Price doesn't matter but I obviously will want the best value for money. So I want opinions on what is a reliable Asus monitor.

    Hopefully going to buy this within the next day or two.

    This is an example of one I have been considering. http://www.amazon.co.uk/VN247H-23-6-...sus+monitor+23

    You got an Nvidia card? You might want to get one with that Gsync technology.

    As Keefy said, assuming you have a card later than the 6XX series it might be worth buying a monitor with G-Sync though they are currently a bit pricey

    I have a ASUS VG236HE at the moment and it hasn't given me a single problem since I've had it. My next monitor will be an Asus one as well.

    I'm either going to go for the one you linked or the same one that doesn't have the G-Sync, most likely get the one with the modification though. Thanks for the help.

    If you do get the Gsync one let us know how well it works.

    IF that G-Sync works as well as they say it does then it'll be a hard decision to save up for a 4k or go for a G-Sync IPS display (eventually).

    If you want to start saving up for a 4k monitor then you should also consider saving up for a 800$ GPU.

    I was sceptical at first but the more I read about it the more exciting it sounds. A lot of big wigs in the industry seem to think it is a major advancement. I had a good article about it recently, I'll try and find it again and edit it in.

    Does this G-Sync technology work will all games and applications? I'm assuming it probably works with most, but I'm curious.

    Yup. Works with everything I believe. It's just the monitor syncing up exactly with the GPU

    A very good article on G-Sync. Highly recommend reading it.

    I am currently running with 3 monitors and 1 TV for 5760x1080 + 1920x1080 on a single GTX680, I think I can handle it.
