Digitec has a rather substantial sale on monitors at the moment (are new lines coming out or is something changing in the market in the near future?). I’ve built a mid tier PC at the beginning of last year with a Ryzen 3600 and GTX 2060. Initially it was supposed to house my Plex server, serve as gaming and office PC (and I’ve been wanting to build a PC for a while). Over the past months it’s been solely a Plex server and a office PC (no time for gaming) and a PC that my girlfriend started to love using for office work after work (we’re both in healthcare, so no home office for us).
I do play the occasional game and the two 27’’ office monitors we had borrowed from a friend have been fine for all of it (office, occasional gaming). I especially love watching a show on one and gaming on the other monitor We have to give them back and I’m pondering wheter to buy a “gaming monitor” like this one or go for a higher resolution or at the very least cheaper (it’s mustachian post after all) office monitor.
Even when I game, I don’t play competitively or online. I mostly play single player games (think AC, Mass Effect,… Horizon Zero Dawn was the last game - awesome BTW) or the occasional NBA2k. It might change but that’s how it was.
Am I really profiting from buying a gaming monitor? How much of a difference is there? I’ve never seen one in the wild so to say. Or is the 60 Hz office monitor fine for me?
