i don't think i can get a hdmi 144hz cable for this. it has hdmi slot but it only allows old cable afaik.
"HDMI and VGA ports are included, but it's the dual-link DVI port you'll need to use to run the screen at 144Hz. ... Thankfully, a dual-link DVI cable is at least included in the box."
"However, not all monitors with HDMI 1.4 necessarily do. Older 144Hz gaming monitors such as the Acer GN246HL, BenQ XL2411, BenQ XL2411Z, BenQ XL2430T, ASUS VG248QE, AOC G2460PF, etc are all limited to 60Hz over HDMI."
BenQ XL2411Z is my monitor :(
alright, have fun and if you decide to go competitive, you now know what to look for :)
this is very nice one
but maybe you find sth. better/newer for the same price in the future.
good amount fps is like constant 300-400+
Looking for a new monitor. Currently on a 1080p 60hz Samsung. My GPU is an XFX R9 390, should I avoid 1440p? I'm currently looking at 1080p 144hz monitors but they all seem a bit... boring... This one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-e-Sports-eQualizer-Flicker-free-Adjustment/dp/B00HZF2JWA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475510362&sr=8-1&keywords=144hz seems perfect but it is ugly as fuck. Is there a reasonably priced 144hz monitor having some sort of design feature (frameless, curved, ultrawide, etc.)? I'm UK based :)
thank you for the response. unfortunately the xl2420z costs 200€ more over here where i order (portugal from amazon.es).
you say the 11z has no ajustable heigh but in the pictures on the amazon.es site it looks like u can change it: link
No, sorry man. I can't help. It seemed to be a problem with PC World. I ended up buying another one of the exact same monitors from PC World with the same problem. So after that I just bought a different 144hz monitor from Amazon and now it works perfectly fine. (this monitor)
if you can rustle up an extra £9.98 then i would say get this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HZF2JWA/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=1Z6ZS105JTV6E0SDZKDE&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=577048787&pf_rd_i=desktop
Is this one not a good option? XL2411Z is £200. I'm not desperate for 1440p but it's 144hz so that's good for the future?
This is the one i have and i'm really liking it. http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1438943458&sr=1-1&keywords=BenQ+XL2411Z
The feeling when you change it to 144Hz will blow your mind.
I dont know if it's the size you want but i feel like 24inch is the best for my use. The other one looks great aswell.
And if you decide to not go for a 144Hz one i wouldent spend 200 on it only to upgrade it in the future
Because I want a decent monitor that runs 144hz for under £200 I found this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HZF2JWA?&ref_=gb1h_tit_c11_9387_8ce1772c&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE but I've been hearing about the firmware and colour issues in reviews.....
Currently my monitors shit, and the parts in that table are on their way now so I can't really speak on the performance. I'm also ordering two of these.
I'm not really too good with this stuff. For problems, I'd recommend /r/buildapc and look make a post with a 'build help' tag, they should be able to help you out.
If you come from the UK I suggest you buy this 1080p 144Hz monitor from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1433626557&sr=8-1&keywords=1080p+144hz+monitor
It is very cheap for a monitor of these specs, it has a 1ms response time, is 1080p (which is perfect for the GTX 970), and 144Hz. You can also adjust the height on it.
Also a 970 could really do with a 144hz monitor to take full advantage of it
144hz is 100% worth it
That Wifi usb thing could be very bad as well but I don't know much about it.
I wouldn't personally go with Acer screens. However Acer monitors are not that bad, but there is better choices too. Look for Asus, AOC and BenQ monitors, Like this one.
sorry, it was 1080p 24". https://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-Response-eQualiser-Flicker-free-Adjustment/dp/B00HZF2JWA
i had this for over 6 years, this 1440p leap is gonna be big i want to get it right.
thinking about this one right now - https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/alienware-27-gaming-monitor-aw2721d/apd/210-axnu/monitors-monitor-accessories
Difficult decision, need opinions!
I've had the worst two weeks of my life in regards of computers. Now I seem to be stuck with the worst predicament to make.
Last week my 980ti died and somehow damaged my motherboard (got motherboard to work now) so I ended up paying £1500 on a new system.
However, I now have no GPU but I'm currently using an old 750ti just to be able to run my new sytem with a display.
The problem I'm facing is if I was to get lucky on getting my hands on a high end RTX card I found out my current monitor will not be able to support it without an expensive adapter which costs over £100.
My current display is this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-Response-eQualiser-Flicker-free-Adjustment/dp/B00HZF2JWA
If I was to get my hands on a new high end RTX card I would either need to buy a that expensive adaptoer or buy an entire new monitor. Sure 1080p displays are pretty cheap nowadays but I'm thnking about going 1440p for the first time. The 980ti I've used with this 1080p display I've never had trouble reaching 144+ fps to matcth the refresh rate. However, if I was to buy a 1440p 144hz monitor how much of a difference would it be? How hard will it be to maintain FPS for the 144hz on a 1440p display?
So these are my options, I need help and opinions if anyone had a similar problem.
1) Buy a high end RTX card and purchase the adapter for my 1080p 144hz monitor.
2) Buy a RTX card which has DVI-D display, such as this one https://www.overclockers.co.uk/palit-geforce-rtx-2060-stormx-6144mb-gddr6-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-04n-pl.html
3) Buy RTX GPU and a 1440p 144hz monitor.
1080p 144hz vs 1440p 144hz. What gpu will I need and is it worth the jump?
i currently have https://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-Response-eQualiser-Flicker-free-Adjustment/dp/B00HZF2JWA
i used to play fps competitively thats why im finding it hard to find an upgrade
I have a BenQ XL2411Z. So I play at 1080p 144hz.
Not sure if it's worth to buy a new monitor just to play League of Legends and WoW Classic. I think not.
Currently, no. But keep a watch on these two I have seen them going below 20k on Diwali sale with some cash back scheme.
You can also check the local prices of these, they should be around 20k.
I spent ages debating over which monitor to get. I went from a 40" TV to a monitor so didn't want to go too small. First I tried a 27" one but it jut felt too big up close and without the option to go above 1080p it seemed a bit blurry.
I eventually decided on a benq 24". Nothing too fancy as it's purely for gaming and anything above and beyond this is a nice to have. You could probably spend more but this is a great purchase for someone only looking to spend a sensible amount on a console gaming monitor.
I also looked at these two
everyone of them looks good to me. I read that you have to get DVI cables to use 144hz together with a 60hz monitor is that true?
I would just go for the cheaper one personally, but it would be nice to know the key differences between the 3 i linked
I've narrowed my options down to 2 but i'm not sure which one to for.
There's the BenQ XL2411Z or Asus VG248QE.
Nothing really, there are cheaper alternatives out there too.
There's also this BenQ, which has better colors and you don't have to deal with Asus support.
I personally use this and it's really good!
The colour settings need to be tweaked out the box, but 2 minutes effort for its price is well worth it.
Thanks for the build and keeping it in budget! Monitor is on amazon which will land me on 992,53€. Graphic cards aren't sold out here either.
Will see what I'll come up with and update you :)
I play fps games every now and then, but I never stick to one genre. I have found these four that I thought looked like good deals BenQ LED, BenQ 144hz, asus, Acer Predator, any advice on them?
With that rig i'd go for a 144hz 1080p monitor, thanks to to the refresh rate you'll be able to disable vsync and get quite a boost in performance and no screen tearing..
These two are quite affordable.
At 27" you should have a native resolution of 1440p, you would probably need to upgrade your GPU.
Thank you so much for all of your help. It is greatly appreciated.
I will be returning the monitor tomorrow.
The only problem is that it's the cheapest place to buy the monitor - in the UK at least. The only other places I could find which sell the monitor at a similar price were different places owned by the same company as PC World, had no more of that particular monitor in stock or had incredibly low ratings on review sites such as TrustPilot.
I'm not sure whether PC World Business and Currys would receive the same batch of monitors as PC World did so I don't know if I should bother trying to buy it from them.
So I believe my only options now are (after returning the monitor for a refund):
Buy the same monitor at a higher price.
Risk buying the same monitor from PC World Business or Currys.
Wait until PC World gets a new batch.
Get a completely different monitor.
Although if I were to get a completely different monitor, I have no idea which monitor to go with. I'd prefer a monitor the same size as the AOC G2460PQU - and of course I'd like it to be 144hz. But I'm not sure where I can get a good 144hz monitor at the same price as this AOC monitor from PC World (£200 GBP).
The user who bought the same monitor from PC World and had the same issue recommended that I get the BenQ XL2411Z. I've just searched it up and I found it on Very.co.uk for £210 and on Amazon.co.uk for £210. My only question is that it says that it's HDMI, No Speakers - does this mean that the monitor will only have a HDMI port, or that it only comes with the HDMI cable?
BenQ XL2411Z LED @ 144 Hz. 229.99 GBP.
I was looking at this one, and I use a GTX 970 Windforce.
yeah sure :)
If ordering from the UK is an option you can purchase from Amazon UK for your budget price, just be sure to account for the P&P. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA
oh :/ sorry i didnt realise
which monitor of the 2 should i get?
I recently bought this monitor and have been loving it so far:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA Pritty sure its that.
Gaming/streaming/using Virtual Machines
Monitor is 1920 x 1080 / 144hz refresh rate
Monitor link for reference : http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA/
tbh, just invest a bit more & you are good to go with this one.
i'm thinking about buying the BenQ XL2411z it's the best what you can get for that money from what I've heard
Two options for you:
ASUS VG248QE 144hz £169 + shipping
BenQ xl2411z 144hz £217
The BenQ is a bit over your price range but not by a whole lot and it is a good monitor.
Okay, I'll bear that all in mind, thanks! :) Do you have any recommendations for a monitor to go with it? I've been looking at this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA but it seems a tad expensive.
Sorry! I accidentally hit report not reply...
Er, what's your budget, the cost of a 390?
which has a FAR nicer 24" panel and is capable of twice the refresh rate which should give your 390 a better work out if you like.
You could try this
unlike the other its a different type of panel which has better colours & viewing angle, but worse motion
>Overclocking your monitor
That one is not shipped to Europe except by some of the 3rd party sellers as noted by SJ0 (though the $336.39 seller does not ship to Europe either, just Canada). The cheapest Amazon.com seller by quick look to Europe is CE Showroom, with $353.27 + $140 shipping, so total $493.27 (448 EUR), and you would probably have to pay the VAT (23% = 103 EUR) on receipt in Greece to customs, so the total cost would be 551 EUR.
It is cheaper to buy it from e.g. Amazon.de (total 319.87 EUR including shipping to Greece, payment with a debit/credit card or gift card), or some German site like MindFactory (total 311.84 EUR including shipping to Greece, payment with bank transfer or PayPal).
Depends what you want it for. I would recommend getting a 144Hz monitor such as this or this or this
thread on here the other day seemed to prefer the http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA
Was it this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HZF2JWA?&ref_=gb1h_tit_c11_9387_8ce1772c&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
Buy two of these then. It uses the same panel lol. 144HZ, same contrast, same thing but a different stand. Missing the speakers (which you don't need obviously and suck anyway) and some ports etc, but essentially it's the same thing.
Also the "£325" one you were looking at
Was actually the 27 inch mode, XL2720Z.
The replacement model for yours is this one
However it still uses the same panel as yours as the 2411Z so just get the 2411Zs.
I've used the Windows calibration for my monitor and my monitor is displaying everything fine. This is my monitor: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA
I've got everything set to sRGB and when I save something it gives me the option of using sRGB and it's already ticked, and I do that. It seems I've done everything on the list and it still works out the same.
In this picture, the top version is exported from Photoshop and the lower one is a screenshot taken of it inside the software. http://puu.sh/hQMHM/b350fddcb9.jpg
I'm currently looking for the exact same set up.
> 144hz and 60hz
These two monitors are the closest i can find, the bezel's seem to be the same width so the only thing you'd need to be happy with is the button placement of each monitor, the 60hz has the buttons down the right hand side of the bezel and the 144hz has the buttons sticking out of the bottom of the bezel.
Not a big drop from £250, but this is the monitor I have, and for £217 from Amazon, it's a dream.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-XL2411Z-24-inch-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B00HZF2JWA I got mine for £217.
Possibly I just want to duel screen but I would HATE the bezels to be different thicknesses.
Also considered this http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00HZF2JWA The one you linked looks like it has a webcam in
I'm looking to buy a new gaming monitor (24'', 1ms, 144hz, 1080p). My budget allows for up to 400$ and so far I have been looking the XL2411Z and the XL2430T from benQ.
I've read reviews, and while the 2430T seems better, I don't know if the price increasement is justifiable? At the same time, I don't know whether better monitors exist. So any suggestions are welcome.
Got mine amazon! Price varies a little bit but around 200-230 seems the standard for the 24 inch non speaker version. No probs boyo!
Short version: Would I be able to connect my VGA monitor to my graphics card with a VGA-HDMI or VGA-DisplayPort converter, and which would be better? (I'm not sure if both even exist).
Long version: looking to upgrade my monitor to a 144Hz monitor the BenQ XL2411Z to be exact, currently I'm using an old VGA monitor that is connected to the DVI slot, the monitor I'm looking to buy only has a DVI input (no displayport) for 144hz so in order to keep both monitors I have to move the VGA on to displayport or hdmi (The only other ports my GPU has), but I'm unsure which works better and how to avoid fakes (other than to make sure it's a box with good reviews).
Alternate not wanted solution: I could just instead get the Asus VG248QE and skip all the worry and buy a displayport cable, however I've read a lot about the BenQ being better due to having more updated hardware, and it being cheaper is very good for my low budget.
>Then you do not own a BenQ model XL2411Z. Even the amazon page says it has it:
Today in sale. At 15:00 available for prime members..
i will definetly get one.
