That kind of question will get you multiple replys for each end of things. Some people say they would never game on anything that isn't 120hz, me personally I don't see much of a difference on something as small as a 24" monitor.. On my 55" TV watching sports or racing games.. Yeah I notice a difference. I choose resolution/image quality over the 120hz. But you will get lots saying I am crazy and go 120hz or nothing.

All I can say is my Dell 2412 is an amazing monitor, works awesome gaming, and once I get a 2nd gpu I will be ordering 2 more when on sale for eyefinity :)

Benq is good too, I think they are the official monitor of the MLG this year, ( not that it means they are the best just because they are MLG preferred ) but if people are using them for 10+ hour tournaments at a time and not complaining they must be pretty good.

As I said before, they both have their good points..

For me the Dell is better. The image quality affects all aspects of the monitors usage.
The 120mhz monitors provide a bit smoother experience in things like FPS games where you are looking around allot and quickly.

Which is more important to you is hard to say until you try them. Would be great to experience them first but all you can generally do is go by what people have said and try make a choice by whats more important to you.


The only thing I would change with that build would be double the SSD.. 256GB, especially if you have a couple of large packages like photoshop or the like and a few big games will fill 120GB in no time.
Remember that you do not want to fill an SSD, keep maybe 10% free.
A larger drive will be faster, give you more room for programs and games, suffer less from any form of degradation and with your budget and the cost of SSD's these days there should be no reason not to go 256GB.
