Advice please on suitability of a TFT.

Would this TFT monitor be any good for playing games on click here ?

As it's got a response time of 16ms, I assumed it would be adequate, i.e.not suffer from ghosting.

Cheers, dagwoood.

I have a LG L1710B with a respose time of 16ms, superb for gaming & watching DVDs.

g0nvs, thanks for that.

Pooke100, both the monitors on your thread are good, but I don't want to spend that much really.

Not my thead some other guy's. I have a hanton (digimate as they are sometimes called) 17inch monitor, 16ms. It was part of my bundle, think they can be had for under £140.

16ms is fine, I have never noticed any ghosting or lagging etc etc.

let us know how you get on.

Pooke100, sorry, I got my wires crossed there :blush:

Is this your monitor click here

I had looked at that and was tempted, and by this one as well click here it's just I'm trying to keep the cost down(I've spent a LOT on my system recently. Had to replace m/b, RAM and h/d when my PSU blew!).

The Benq monitor(from my link)I can get for £116 delivered.

  Pooke100 23:32 21 Apr 2005

yep that's mine, it's pretty good for the money. If you only want 15 inch: click here

Pooke100, I'd come across the 15" digimate, but it's not brilliant in the looks department :)

  dagwoood 23:36 21 Apr 2005

In saying that, they've sold like hot cakes on some internet retailers sites(Overclockers uk/Aria). No accounting for taste :D

  Pooke100 23:44 21 Apr 2005

Seems alright to me, but then I'd look for functionality and value! lol. The Benq looks good £116 is not a bad price either.

I would say that all the monitors look the same: big flat square shaped panel with silver edges and a black base, well most fit that description.

Best of luck to ya, I meant to say that in the last post, you've not had much luck lately with replacing all those parts.
