a monitor will not add any performance to a system. with a larger screen you can feasably increase the resolution, which will decrease video performance as you are requiring the vidcard to handle more pixels. on the other hand, a bigger screen also means easier viewing (easier on the eyes) of detail. bigger is pretty much always better.

thats about it, though.

What about refresh rates??? they are very important I have ****ty old monitor @ 60hz refresh rate this means my fps is very low when V-Sync is on. What refresh rate would you say is best on average for 100+ framerates????????

P3 700mhz
576 PC-133 SDRAM
Geforce 2 Ultra 64mb DDR
Gigabyte 6VM7-4E mobo
etc etc.

^upgrading as soon as Nvidia Nforce mobos availible.

the noticable difference between 60 and 100 FPS is almost negligable without a framerate counter. if you are a performance nut and the numbers mean more than the actual appearance, then i suppose an expensive monitor would be of more importance.

as i said a monitor does not add any performance to a system. the only gains will be in visual quality. with the right (or wrong, depending on the circumstances) settings, it can decrease performance.

The awnser to your question its not that generic or simple .

We have some technologies that the industry uses , so the products haves ,and the specifications of the technology that they use , and the price tag .

For instance with out a SONY tube , we can not have one real TRINITRON solution .
Or one monitor that uses the eletronic parts of Sony , it will not be totaly perfect with out the Sonys tube .

In the monitors market there is only 3 basic categories of monitors .
Cheapo ones -- not known brands .......... Service and support is not there .
Medium ones -- most of them are well known brands , but with lower specs and visual quality from the top models .
Cash killers --- In this category we speak that we pay some cash more , but we are demanding the highest quality , and the warranty ,and the service is at the top scale .

The size its also something very inportant !!!
The monitor manufactors , they use the best technology that they have mostly at 19" or biggers .

That explanes the price diference of 17" with 19" .

Sony was the first monitors manufactor , with the EIZO too , that they had make super high quality products in small size , like 15 " .
But because all the others was making cheapo ones and the prices was very diferent , SONY change theyr policy , and the last 4 years they have lower down the quality alot in they 15" and 17" models , just to come back to the prices game ,with all the others .

As the americans say , i ven for the monitors .... money talks ... :)

Because i have some extra knowlege on all this stuff , if you give me your full consideration , i probably help you to make your mind .
