When you are a gaming fan, you are bound to have the latest technology and items sold in the market. One of the important requirements today for a gamer is the screen. Gone are the days when one used to be happy with the regular computer monitor. Today gaming displays are sold separately and are in very high demand.

Here is a small buying guide for displays, to help you make the right choice:

Usage

The most important factor to consider before buying a monitor is to understand its usage. What are you going to use it for? Only gaming, for other purposes or for multimedia projects? the usage determines the requirement. When it is for regular activities, a low-quality screen will suffice, but for gaming and multimedia projects, a high-resolution screen can only do justice to the colors and graphics generated.

Type

One can choose between a LED/ LCD screen, IPS screen, or even a touch screen. While LCD and LED screens are pocket-friendly, they also produce a good quality image. The backlighting in an LED screen is more than in the LCD monitor. The IPS delivers better colors that are more close to the original. The viewing angle is also wide in this model. The touch screen model is apt for home users and multimedia requirements, as swiping the screen is much easier and saves more time, than moving around with the mouse.

Size

Going by the norm – bigger is better, a big screen is any day better than a small screen. This is because the color and images of the game can be viewed in very high quality and different angles. The ultra wide latest gaming monitors are very useful to see things bigger and closer. Multiple documents can be viewed at the same time.
