Setup Advice?!
« on: 03:03 PM - 03/08/18 »
Hey Xim community, I'm currently in a pickle for how I want to setup my new station. Both setup's involve the Apex, Xbox One X and of course a monitor. I always sit up close (Like I do with my computer) when I game, so I'm debating on switchin from my Samsung 55k 4k TV back to my ASUS 27" Monitor(1080p, 144htz)  for Xbox gaming, especially with a XIM Apex. I don't "lounge" or "lazy" game, so having the 55" provides no benefit other than the better picture quality which is a great plus but not worth it on certain games.

So can I get some feedback from the community on what you have done?
- Have you switched from a TV to a Monitor.. if so how was the transition and worth it?
- Do you feel like you are more competitive being on that kind of setup?
- Do you still use a TV and enjoy it?
- Are you purely a monitor gamer and is it weird to go back?

Just a few questions I had off the top of my head.

I use the apex, xbox1x, g903 wirelessly ,Sony nav.  and play on a 65 inch hd 4k TV with only game mode and hdr on it. the games I mainly play is cod. I'm sure the monitor is faster but I went 3 months ago from never playing with mouse and keyboard with a 1.50 kd to dropping V2s every other day. lol

Hello, i have a Samsung 4k Qled that i play my Xbox One X on with a controller. I recently got a Apex, so i switched it to my Benq 1080p Console gaming Monitor (it sets on my pc desk). Now i can easily switch my hub with mouse and keyboard plugged in back to my PC quickly. I would much rather play on my 27" gaming monitor when im playing competitively like on fortnite. I play games like tomb raider and far cry 5 on the 4k tv.
