23" greatness.
« on: 05:20 PM - 07/09/13 »
Oh man, how I forgot how it felt to play on a 23" monitor.

Ever since I got the XIM, I've been playing on a 27" Samsung with all the bells and whistles. Recently decided I was tired of the glossy screen during the day time and ended up getting a nice 1440p Asus IPS screen. Problem with the high resolution IPS screens is that they can't really keep up with regular TN panels when it comes to speed... and movement definitely felt a bit sluggish compared to the Samsung.

So I pulled out the old (but still fantastic) Asus 23 incher and I'm fragging kids like no tomorrow, heh  ;D I totally forgot how a smaller monitor felt after using the 27" for gaming for so long.

So now I've decided to use the 23" as my main gaming monitor (for FPS at least) and have the 1440p right beside it for the PC activities.

Moral of the story, small monitors FTW. I suppose 27" might be okay if you are a fair distance away from it... but in my case 23" blows it out of the water.

P.S. if anyone wants to run some League Play Champions on the 360 send me a friend invite at: PERVY SAGE x

Tired of people backing out of games when they see a couple Masters on the other team  >:(

the downside of 23" is on Battlefield 3 PC at 1080p, the minimap become so small that i have a hard time to look for where the enemy from.Hopefully this will be fixed in BF4

Would be great if you could arrange the size of minimaps, ammo-count etc to your preference.
Smaller/bigger than standard size.

Hit M to change the size of the mini map. You can zoom in / out without blowing the map up. Maybe it's N idk. Add me on origin if you want, name is same as GT but the O is a 0.
