Thread: 28" monitor

  1. #1
    Hey, I have noticed that the 28" monitor is on the market, seems pretty cool:

    Do you have one, will it be good for gaming?? Will this monitor have any special requirements for the computer system?

    bigger the screen, the higher the gfx card requirement to produce the same fps. it's not like gfx cards are ahead of games in terms of technology right now. so unless u REALLY need to look at such a big screen i'd advise against it.

    I assume you mean "The higher the resolution".

    the link says that it is refurbished. we all know that lcd monitors only have so many hours of life before they turn into pancake griddles. an lcd is not something that i would buy refurbished

    For those that say a big monitor like a 28"+ is overkill wait till you use one for a month. The 19" you loved so dearly the month before will seem like an 1950's tv set.

    Then again I might be biased since I mostly do photo and design work. Half-life 2 is way more fun on a bigger screen though.

    Yeah I used to have a 17", but then I upgraded to a 22" and I can never go back. But there is a downside. It's getting to be a bigger pain in the ass to haul my stuff to LAN parties
