When indulging in a full system upgrade on a tight budget there are regrettably trade-offs that need to be made. More often than not it is the CPU, memory and graphics card which become the main focus and which undoubtedly consume a vast majority of that budget. Perhaps it is the case, CPU cooler or even the monitor which isn’t as carefully considered and ends up having compromises applied.
However, narrowing down a decent display is actually quite important. If you’re spending a substantial amount of cash on the graphics card to play the latest gaming titles, playing these games on a cheap display with poor response time, refresh rate and colour reproduction will result in a shoddy gaming experience. It makes sense to invest in a good monitor – after all, you’ll be spending all your time viewing gameplay with your eyes. Give them something good to look at!
Up for review today is a new display from the ASUS ROG team – the Swift PG259QNR. This may be a 24.5-inch monitor designed for 1080p but it has every conceivable feature you could dream of for competitive gaming. HDR10, G-SYNC, 1ms response time and a whopping 360Hz refresh rate.
