Are you thinking about buying a new monitor for your computer? Or maybe you just got a nice computer and you want a monitor that can bring it to life? That is a good thing, because there are so many great monitors on the market these days, and they are packed with features. The prices are also lower than they were a few years ago, which means you can get a stunning deal. But it is all about what you want, the specs of your computer, and how much you are willing to pay for the monitor that you will buy.
When it comes to resolution, you have two main choices. You can go with 1080p, or you can push the boat and you can go with 1440p. The first thing you must figure out is if you can spend more than $200 on a monitor. If you cannot, then stick with 1080p. If you can, and you have a good graphics card in your computer, then 1440p is a solid choice. Your desktop will look great, games come to life, and you can get a 27 inch monitor without the desktop looking as though it is pixelated.
But even if you are on a budget, do not feel bad. 1080p monitors are stunning, so long as you do not go above 24 inches. That is the right size for this resolution. If you go any higher, you may have a big size for movies and games, but your text will look very pixelated if you are browsing the web or you are doing any work on your computer. With a 1080p monitor, you may want to go with a refresh rate of 144Hz, if you are the type of person who plays a lot of games. This will get you a frame rate of up to 120, as opposed to the usual 60.
