When it comes to gaming on PC & Consoles, India has become a growing market for many companies like Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts and any other company related to gaming. With recent progress in internet speeds in India, PC gamers have been able to buy games from Steam Sales that lets them buy PC games at ridiculous discounts. For console gamers, manufacturers like Sony as well as Microsoft launched their latest consoles i.e. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in India only a few weeks after the release in USA which allowed people who prefer gaming on consoles to buy these consoles as soon as they were launched.
But gaming as a hobby has taken India by storm and people are looking for things that can easily enhance their gaming experience nowadays. Aftermarket things like game controllers, monitors etc. have been selling in great numbers since last 2-3 years in India. But in this post I am going to share some of the best gaming monitors available in India.
Why Gaming Monitors?
When it comes to new age games and the systems on which these games can run on, almost all the games produce insane FPS (frames per seconds). In present day’s consoles, 60fps is a benchmark of the frames that you can see in games that run on consoles. But on a PC, which carries much more power thanks to the powerful CPUs, graphics cards and more, the number of frames and can go upwards of 60fps.
Now, normal traditional monitors have a refresh rate of 60Hz or maximum of 75Hz in some cases. This frequency means that the screen will be able to display only 60-75 frames per second. But this doesn’t mean they will stop working if the frames go upwards of 75fps, they will still work but this will affect the way you play the games. The screens & images displayed will start tearing and if you are playing a game like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, you will be able to see how it affects your gaming experience.
What’s so special in Gaming Monitors?
Gaming monitors come at a higher price as compared to the normal traditional monitors but they are also feature packed. First of all, an entry level gaming monitor can touch a minimum of 144Hz when it comes to displaying frames. But they can also be overclocked upwards to 165Hz to provide a much better visual feel to the game.
This might not seem important at first, but if you are a player who plays games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, DotA 2 and others professionally, you will need these monitors to be able to play in a perfect way.
