Tips for Buying a Budget Gaming Monitor
Here are several tips to keep in mind when shopping for a gaming monitor under $100:
The bigger the gaming monitor is the better. However, you might want to choose a smaller one if there are space concerns.
The bigger screens require better screen resolutions. Maximum full HD screen resolution is 1,920 by 1,080 for screens up to 27 inches. Any larger and you will need better resolutions.
Response and refresh rate refers to how fast a pixel can change. It’s given in milliseconds (ms). The ideal ms rate is 2 or less. But monitors with rates up to 5ms are quite sufficient for gaming needs.
Make sure the monitor comes with adequate connectivity. Some may not have HDMI ports so you should be sure that you don’t need one before buying one of these.
If you are on a budget, you may not be able to benefit from latest tech like Ultra-High-Definition (UHD). But don’t be too disappointed. Budget range monitors can be quite detailed in comparable ways.
