    Hi all. I am planning to build a gaming system in the next 1-2 months, and will need a new monitor to go with it.

    1. Budget?
    ~10k. The lower the better, but I can extend to 15k if required.
    2. Display type and size?
    1080p. Freesync is a must. 21-24 ".
    3. What will the TV/monitor be used for primarily?
    Everyday use - gaming, movies, but mostly just crawling the interwebs.
    4. Types and number of ports required?
    Don't care as long as it has freesync.
    5. Preferred choice of brand?
    Name brands are preferred.
    6. Any TV/monitor in consideration?
    Yes. Kindly read on.
    7. Any other info that you want to share.
    Vesa mount would be good to have.

    I have shortlisted these two:
    ModelPanelSizeBacklightColour resVesa mountRefresh rateResponse timePrice
    LG 22MP69VQIPS22LED?7540-75 Hz5 ms10k
    Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL(C24F390FH)VA23.5(curved)??7556-72 Hz4 ms10k
    I couldn't find if they are 8 bit displays, but in the absence of information I'll assume they are both 6 bit, not that it matters in my budget. My biggest concern is the panel. The LG IPS should have worse blacks, but the Samsung VA seems to have backlight bleed issues too, according to some amazon reviews. Also, the samsung is curved, which I am not a fan of.

    Please let me know if anyone knows any other freesync VA panels. I'll also consider TN, provided their picture quality is good. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks !

    How are freesync monitors so cheap? Are those just 60Hz panels?

    Yup. 60 Hz fixed or freesync in the range of 40 something to ~75 Hz.

    Thanks @Minion , that seems to be worth considering.

    Apart from lower refresh rates, it not patented like gsync. Hence cheaper for OEM's to include this technology in their products.

    17k is really pushing it(18 now). Besides, I won't have a GPU capable of pushing 120+ FPS on the games I intend to play.
