One of the features that define a good gaming experience is the graphics, but even the best graphics will be of no use if the gaming monitors are not compatible with the high end graphics. Therefore it is important to consider certain features before buying a gaming monitor. The features that are important are high resolution, vibrant and clear display, and absence of ghosting problems. Apart from this, if gaming monitors have easy screen navigation, and good interface, the gaming experience is further enhanced. Other features of gaming monitors include compatibility, display technology, size of monitor, and input device type. Most of the monitors available on the market today are PC compatible, but some monitors are Mac PC compatible as well. The display technology is usually TFT active matrix; and size varies from 22 in to 27 in. or more.
When talking about gaming, the thing that automatically comes to mind is a gaming console, or dedicated game boxes that take the gaming experience to next level. Up to some time back, the humble PC was not a match to these consoles, but now with the advancement in PC configuration, a PC too can render games up to a decent level of customer satisfaction. (PCs may still have problem in rendering high end games). The advantage with gaming PC is that it serves both as a PC as well as a gaming device. The expansion packages are easier to install on a PC rather than on a gaming console. The processor of a gaming pc should match the type of games that are intended to be played. To play simple web browsing games, Intel Atom processors, or single-core AMD Athlon are sufficient. More graphic intense games can be played on Intel Core 2 Duo processor or AMD Athlon II X2 processors. For heavy gaming experience a gaming pc needs to have quad-core processors like the Intel Core.
