Pc gamers are now few and far between as games consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation are often the more popular choice. There are some games, especially old games that are only available on the PC but most other games are available on these other platforms now.
Gaming monitors are not only used for PC’s though, but many gamers are also now adding them to their consoles for an enhanced experience.
PC monitors often have a better specification as they usually have a higher refresh rate and a quicker response time than TV’s.
Using a gaming monitor for your games console also means that you can free up the TV for others to watch. This may be useful if you have family members that want to watch the telly.
Small gaming monitors from 22 inch to 27 inch range from about £100-£300 pounds but the larger gaming monitors can cost upwards of £600. You need to check the compatibility of the console to the monitor and decide if you want to use a HDMI lead or a VGA lead. If plugging in to a PC the VGA lead may give you a better experience it when using a gaming console, you will most likely have to use the HDMI lead instead.
