Factors To Consider When Choosing Best Gaming Monitor Under £200

There are some key factors to think about when you choose a gaming monitor under £200. And we will demonstrate them below here.

Screen size

The screen size is often measured diagonally from one corner of the screen to the other. This measurement will give you an idea of how big a monitor is going to be.

Some gamers prefer smaller monitors which offer a lot of visibility on the entire screen. Still, other gamers prefer larger monitors that give them more room for working with multiple programs at once or browsing for more extended periods.

More giant monitors offer a larger field of view, so they’re usually better for competitive players.

But, you’ll need to make sure your desk can accommodate your needs if you go with a bigger monitor. If you play games on the couch or primarily single-player games, a smaller monitor might be best for you.

If you plan to play games at a distance, the larger, the better because the pixels will be smaller and easier to see. If you want to play games up close, it will be best to have a shorter screen.

Generally, the bigger the screen size is, the better the resolution you want on your monitor should be. The most recommended dimensions for a gaming monitor are either 24 inches or 27 inches.

Refresh Rate

It’s essential to pay attention to the refresh rate of your monitor when you’re buying a gaming monitor. This is because it can have a significant effect on your gameplay and performance.

The refresh rate refers to how often, in milliseconds, the screen updates with new information at any given time. For example, if you are playing an FPS game, then every millisecond counts!

Refresh rates are mostly marked as Hertz (HZ). The higher the number, the better it is for your gameplay.

For example, if you are playing an online game, a 100Hz or higher refresh rate will give you more FPS so that everything looks smooth and fluid without any lagging issues.

Therefore, a higher refresh rate will result in more frames per second (FPS), which means smoother gameplay and less lag time between actions.

To enjoy the best possible experience while playing games or watching movies on your computer monitor, be sure that it has at least 75Hz refresh rates. Everything looks smooth and fluid without any lagging issues whatsoever.

Screen Resolution

Best Gaming Monitor Under £200 - A Buyer's Guide In [year] 44

Screen resolution is one of the most important factors when choosing a monitor. Resolution refers to the number of pixels that are contained in the monitor. The more pixels, the higher the resolution.

It means that it’s how many pixels will be displayed on each unit of space. Higher resolutions will provide you with more detail, but they require more graphical display on your monitor.

Some racing games and sports games do not require high resolutions because there is little movement on-screen.

In contrast, FPS (First Person Shooters) and RPG (Role Playing Games) require a higher resolution to accommodate fast movements on screen.

A higher resolution will also use up more power, leading to increased electricity bills over time.

It is vital to make sure you choose an appropriate screen resolution for your needs and budget, as some monitors may not offer lower resolutions like 800×600.

For example, a 27-inch screen will have a better viewing experience with a 1080p resolution because it offers 1.07 million pixels.

On the other hand, 1440p and 4K screens should only be used when you want sharper games. If you have a graphics card that can only handle 1440p, then you should go for it.

Viewing Angle

The viewing angle refers to the viewing angle of a monitor. It is how far you can move from side to side, up and down from your normal monitor position, before the picture starts to get blurry. Most monitors have a viewing angle of 170-178 degrees.

A larger viewing angle means that more people can look at the screen without just looking at it straight on.

A monitor with a larger viewing angle is more expensive but worth it in most cases because it provides a more extensive range for people who work at a desk or have two monitors side by side.

However, the downside to monitors with high viewing angles is that they often have lower resolution screens and less color depth.

A wider viewing angle is beneficial if more than one of you is looking at the monitor, as seen in most living room setups.

Many lower resolution screens will have a smaller viewing size, so always check how many inches you can see clearly before deciding on a monitor.

It is better to have a higher-resolution monitor with a smaller view than a low-resolution one with a large display size because it gives you more room for windows which are helpful when multitasking.

Aspect Ratio

Best Gaming Monitor Under £200 - A Buyer's Guide In [year] 46

A lot of the aspect ratios on monitors are dependent on which games you play or what type of monitor you are using.

For first-person shooter games, the aspect ratio should be either 16:9, 16:10, or 4:3 for most cases, if not all.

If you are playing games with a lot of action with objects moving quickly across the screen, it is best to have an aspect ratio of 16:10 so that you can see more of what is happening.

For games that aren’t as fast-paced, having a 4:3 ratio would be better because it would give you more room to view all your options before deciding.

The resolution of your monitor also affects the aspect ratio. The lower the resolution, the more likely it is that you can get a wider screen.

For instance, if you have a 720p or 1080p monitor and choose a 4:3 ratio, you will see more at once because fewer pixels are vertical.

If you have a higher resolution monitor, it would be better to choose a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio, as they will show more horizontally.

Notable Features

Gaming monitors often have unique features that set them apart from general-purpose monitors.

High refresh rates and adaptive refresh rates are most common, producing smooth gameplay without any ghosting or blurriness on the screen.

Other advanced features include NVIDIA G-Sync, AMD FreeSync, and VRR (variable refresh rate) technologies for smooth motion. These refresh rates are significant in racing games since they involve a lot of high-speed movement.

Connectivity And Compatibility

The number of ports on the monitor is also essential for gamers who prefer to connect their devices directly instead of using HDMI cables.

Make sure that your choice has enough USB ports and HDMI ports to accommodate all your gaming components.

It should also be compatible with both PC and PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles. The monitor should be designed with the console in mind as well as the PC.

Response Time

Response time is a measurement of how quickly pixels can change from one color to another. A monitor with a fast response time will produce a more transparent and more vivid image, which is essential for gaming.

You also need to check the monitor’s response time if you’re playing fast-paced games such as FPS games (First-person shooter).

The lower the response time, the better it is for your gameplay because your actions will be much more accurate and quick in such cases.

Warranty Service

When it comes to warranties, there is no standard warranty that a gaming monitor should have. It is best to find one that has a warranty period of at least two full years.

This will give you enough time to replace the monitor if it breaks down, which is likely to happen due to the constant pressure placed on them when gaming for long periods.

Other Tips

You should check when choosing a gaming monitor’s screen resolution, screen size, and panel type.

This is because different technologies give better image quality in other cases. For example, TN panels offer a much faster response time, while IPS panels offer a much higher contrast ratio.

The final thing that you should look for in a gaming monitor is adaptive sync technology. This is because it’ll ensure that you get the best possible visuals even if your frame rates are not very high.

For example, G-Sync will provide better visuals in games even when your fps are low, whereas FreeSync will do the same thing only when your FPS is high enough.

FAQs about Best Gaming Monitor Under £200

– Is it worth buying a 144Hz Gaming Monitor over 60Hz for gaming, and what benefits come with it?

best gaming monitor under £200
Best Gaming Monitor Under £200 - A Buyer's Guide In [year] 52

The 144Hz refresh rate doubles the number of frames per second, resulting in a smoother experience and better responsiveness. All you have to do is look at fast-moving scenes, and you’ll notice the difference.

The screen’s color accuracy has also improved: With twice as many cycles for refreshing each pixel, there is less time spent recalibrating colors from frame to frame.

Another major plus? There are no ghosting effects on 144 Hz monitors; if you’re looking for a significant competitive advantage, that’s where 60 Hz will fail (primarily because e-sports players like FPS games).

– How many inches should my screen be if my eye level height is 5’10”?

If your eye level height is around 5’10”, the most common size for a monitor screen would be 27″.

– If I want to go above 60Hz, how much does it cost per extra Hz in 2020’s models?

best gaming monitor under £200
Best Gaming Monitor Under £200 - A Buyer's Guide In [year] 53

If you want to go above 60Hz, the cost per Hz is generally about £20-£30. Depending on your monitor of choice, there may be discounts for certain Hz levels, though.

– Will I have to change my monitor settings when switching from games to movies and vice versa?

No, because monitor settings are set according to what you’re viewing on the screen. All video games run at 60fps; movies, on the other hand, use only 24 frames every second (or 25 in Europe).

When watching movies or TV shows, your graphics card slows down to match that frequency.

If you want to play a game while using your computer for something else- like e-mailing coworkers or browsing Facebook- it’s best not to put the game in full-screen mode; this way, it will use less of your CPU and can’t affect speeds like these.

– Is there such thing as the best gaming monitors that work well both for gamers and corporate employees in their offices?

best gaming monitor under £200
Best Gaming Monitor Under £200 - A Buyer's Guide In [year] 54

The short answer is yes. The long answer is maybe.

As you can see, technology today has made it possible for just about everyone to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Certain types of monitors are ideal for gamers, while others work exceptionally well in the office environment.

Their lightweight and portable nature make them great for on-the-go professionals who want to ditch their computer monitor at home but still work efficiently on projects with tablets or laptops.

If you opt to use a touchscreen monitor rather than a foldable laptop screen for your computer system setup, you’ll be able to roam around with wireless keyboards and mice too!

With this flexibility in mind, there are quite a few monitors to choose from in this day and age.

How can I prolong the life of my best gaming monitors for less than £200 price point?

There are many ways to prolong the life of any best gaming monitor for less than £200 price point. Some of these include:

Don’t expose your laptop or desktop monitor to direct sunlight, which can cause your LCD monitor to age quicker and become more susceptible to damage

It is a great idea to make a habit of turning off the monitor when it will not be used for a while.

Turning your computer on and then off repeatedly does add wear and tear, so you should do that sparingly if possible.

To prevent glare from the sun or other light sources when using your best gaming monitors, try angling your screen towards windows.

However, it should be away from large glass windows with natural lighting coming through them! Or turn the brightness settings up and move away from any light source.

Conclusion

The best gaming monitor under £200 is a difficult question to answer. That’s because the monitors available for this price range can be used in many different contexts and environments, from corporate offices to gamers’ apartments.
