Gaming is no fun without good graphics. Your new gaming rig needs a good video card and a monitor designed with gaming in mind.

Don’t be fooled by monitors labelled as “gaming monitors”. They usually have needlessly high refresh rates making them very expensive. You don’t need to spend a lot to get a good LCD/LED monitor. I recommend the Asus VS248H-P. It’s a 24” TN monitor with LED backlighting and a 2ms response time. As a TN monitor it’s ideal for gaming. LED backlighting makes it thinner, lighter, start faster and more power efficient than standard LCDs. A 2ms response time means there will be no ghosting (after images). Finally, 24” is a great size. Gaming is a lot more fun when you have a good size monitor. If you would like something a little bigger, I recommend the ASUS VS278Q-P. It’s an Asus 27″ TN LED monitor with a 1ms response time.

Asus Geforce GTX 1050 Ti
If you’re looking for a 4GB video card, I recommend the Asus Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB ROG STRIX OC Edition. A 4GB card will let you play many modern games. Other 4GB cards are faster but they cost a lot more. Many are over $300. The Geforce GTX 1050 Ti is a good 4GB card at a good price.
