[RESOLVED] New monitor choices..
« on: March 17, 2014, 03:56 »
Currently I have a T24C300 Samsung for my desktop (it's actually a TV, don't ask me why I bought that instead of a screen).

So at the moment I have 1920x1080, which was nice for the past year, but I really want to have more screen size.


I have two options:

Option A 1920x1080 + 1920x1080
I buy a second Samsung monitor of the same size (24inch) that looks almost the same.


Downside: more cables, more space wasted.

Option B 2560x1080 or 2560x1440
I buy an ultra wide screen like the LG 29EB93-P (29inch) (2560x1080)

or just with a big resolution (2560x1440)


Downside: more money, and I need to sell my current TV/screen.

Halp.

RESOLVED: I decided to buy the exact same screen, only without TV ability.

GP convinced me because when your resolution becomes really large, your GPU has to work a lot harder.
But with 2 separate screens, you can just disable one while gaming.

Eh? You don't need to disable it, it's enough to keep the game on one screen.

That's actually what I meant, it was a bad sentence.
