When You Should Consider A Gaming Monitor Over A TV

Subscribe: bit.ly/Sub_to_TheGamer
When playing video games, for as long as memory can recall, we’ve played on either TVs or monitors, with handhelds often coming with TV-style screens. Consoles tend to be hooked up to televisions, while PCs almost always are connected to monitors. However, either technology works with both devices.
Many think you need a gaming PC, or even a PC at all, to take advantage of the many, often gamer-specific features built into monitors, like high refresh rates and fast response times. This isn’t the case; in fact, many of the benefits of monitors can apply to consoles, if you simply choose to hook your console up to a monitor instead of a television.
There are a few sacrifices, if you’re starting from a really high-end, expensive TV, going to a monitor from a TV, but there are not just many benefits but you can often find a better value in a monitor for gaming than you can with an equivalently priced TV.
Depending on your configuration and how you like to game personally, a monitor might not work for every setup. But if you’re serious about getting games to play their best and feel as responsive and accurate as they possibly can, even when gaming on a console, there is no better investment than in a monitor over a traditional television. This is much more the case now than ever before, with the latest generation consoles supporting framerates up to 120FPS.

    I have a 700 dollar 55 inch samsung 4k tv with 60 hz. It has a response time of 11 ms with gamemode! This setup works just perfectly for me Nice and accurate colors and a fast response time! It's just one thing that I'm conserved about and that is if it has 2.0 hdmi support! How do I know if my tv supports that?

    Monitors have higher hz or more hz but the most of them are smaller than a tv, so if you play ona newer console you need a monitor but you play on the xbox 360 or maybe xbox one and ps4 the max 120 hz is enough and every cheap smart tv have or a more expensive

    1440p is the sweet spot for me. It's still very sharp but doesn't hit the GPU/console too much. Destiny 2 is currently doing PvP at 1440p at 120fps on Series X and Ps5.

    I recommend a monitor for fps but if you want to get a high-end graphic I would good with a TV.

      I know that but You didn’t get what I said but aii if you want to choose a monitor for more frames then go for it, then if you want to choose a tv for more high end graphics then go for it I would if choose the tv bc i like my graphic to be realistic

      Wrong. Tv are 720,1080 and 4k. Monitors are 1080,1440 an 4k. So a monitor is always better and lower response times
