Default YAH! - nVidia 6600 + ViewSonic VX922 LCD Monitor

FOR GAMERS:

Just got the ViewSonic VX922 19" LCD monitor.
http://store.viewsonic.com/html/ibeC...15&item=122601

I have the nVida 6600, 256 VRAM and this combo is outstanding for game
play.

Why I finally changed from a CRT monitor to this LCD? If you go the
page above you see in its description.. *2ms Response*.

It's short Response rates that make this LCD so good for gaming. If
you use CompUSA for looking at LCD monitors, and look at the specs,
you'll note that the typical Response = 8 to 18ms. I found that
CompUSA listed a ViewSonic VX924 (3ms Response) but no longer stocked.
That's when I went directly to ViewSonic's WEB site and found the
VX922 with even faster Response. By the way, I finally ordered the
VX922 via Amazon.

Just in case, I do not work for ViewSonic.

I am glad you are happy with your VX922, would you like to know more
about how this panel manages to boast a spec of '2 millisecond' response
time? It's one of the fastest on paper panels to date.

The VX922 uses a 6-bit TN panel with a high quality tightly controlled
overdrive circuit. That means only 64 RGB states each instead of 255
(6-bit vs. 8-bit), and pixels that change colors when you want them to.

The panel uses a dithering algorithm to fill in the missing color
information to achieve a semblance of the 16 million colors
possibilities that 8-bit provides. 6-bit panels can only display
262,000-ish colors natively. This creates banding, which is very
noticeable in many environments, particularly smooth gradients like
light or dark skies, or oceans or certain large textures with solid
coloring. Very ugly.

The overdrive circuit is technical wizardry to help overcome the lengthy
latency of lcd pixels. By guessing which pixels will be needed to be
modified before you request them and guessing well, the extra false
images (ghosts), are almost completely eliminated since only those exact
pixels of the objects present location are turned on. Try moving side to
side quickly in any game on any panel, if you see more than one 'you'
moving, that's a ghost and that's the overdrive circuit trying to guess
where you are. (and lcd pixel decay to a minor extent).

With less do to (6-bit) and doing it more precisely (overdrive) you get
a panel that is good for displaying limited colors quickly. However,
there are serious drawbacks to the VX922's design choices, IQ is
noticeably lower than an 8-bit panel and that is also noticeable in many
games, DVD viewing is also poor in that regard. Also, uniformity is less
in the corners than the center of the screen, a compromise for gamers,
since that is where the most attention is the center, and HUDS usually
fill the corners and tend to be static.

No, this panel is not a superior replacement to a CRT, but it does have
some good features for FPS gaming and it is very affordable. As always,
replace the wholly inadequate base with an ergotron or similar after
market base/lifter.

No, I don't work for Viewsonic either! Why would we think you did?

Thanks for the info. I'm a techie and I like this sort of thing.
