Hello TTG....


I currently game on my 47" 3D Smart TV in my living room, but looking to move to a monitor on my desk with my computer, but never had my own setup like this before....

So do I go for a 24 or 27 inch monitor? Been looking at these monitors:



This monitor is 27" ...

This monitor is 24" ...

Note: If i go for the 24" i can fit 2 on my desk, so PC on 1 screen and PS4 and Xbox on other screen. The 27" I could squeeze 2 on but the edges of both screens would hang off, look stupid and probably too big. I run duel screen PC currently on 19" monitors but dont do as much dev work on PC any more so looking to drop down to 1 PC screen anyway.

If you have any suggestions on screens drop me links below, must ship to UK.

Not 100% fussed if they have speakers, will be running sound through Turtle Beaches but would be cool to have speakers because im not bothered about the quality of the sound when I am on Fifa and saves me sitting with big headphones on for fifa.

Thanks.

But atm I sit right across the room on the sofa. On my monitor I will be sat right next to it on my desk chair.

Also on the big TV my partner and son watch TV so can not get as much game time, maybe a few hours per day. if i use monitors on my desk I can access 24/7.

32in is the perfect size for view since monitors are smaller compared to tvs, but the more common ones people use are 21.5in(imo are too small) but they are good if you get one with the good rgb color scheme most cheap monitors at that inch sucks for the rgb color spectrum

I have always had two monitors. Both were 23'' but now one is 24'' and the other is 23''. Having two monitors is the best thing ever really.. even with everyday things. I currently have two internet tabs open... one on each screen and it's much better than switching back and forth.
