Why are they so picky about response times? It's built-in motion blur!

I was really busy yesterday, so didn't get time to clarify.

Firstly it's not that one. That is the Raptor 2, and costs £1000. What I bought is the Raptor 1, and the RRP is £699. However.



It's refurb. And it was half price, and it's a totally different panel in there (144hz etc).

It reviewed very well (the V1).

I almost bought one last year when Currys had them on sale for £599. However, I decided to go with a 32" curved. It (the 32) was also cheaper.

However, whilst I love the Strix dearly I have another rig at my mother's. The small one I just upgraded. And the monitor there? 32" 60hz VA I have had for 6 years.



Given I run a 2080Ti on that too and play Esport (PUBG) I really, really need a higher refresh rate. At £350? I would imagine you could get a low end IPS screen with the same or similar spec, but everything on that desk is Razer so at the price I went with it. Praying it's not broken or anything, but DPD are delivering so it should arrive in the condition it was sent

Oh and I also want to see what all the fuss is about with IPS. I've stuck to VA since getting that HP, and want to see if it really is any better

Here, let me give you a good idea of why I bought it. Both rigs are almost the same in spec. One is 2080ti kingpin, 3950x PB and 32gb RAM on a 144 Strix. The second rig is a 2080Ti Aorus Xtreme clocked 200mhz slower, 3600 PB and 16gb RAM.

This is on my rig at home (with 144hz and lower response). Note mainly, damage. Meaning when shot at I have been able to respond and either shoot back, causing damage, or kill.





Those games were all played here, at home. The red cut off line shows the last time I played on the 60hz panel.



Bear in mind of course that damage doesn't = kills as I most usually play in a squad of 4. Meaning my mates are usually on the same target unless it's a 1v1.

And people say refresh rates and response times are garbage, huh.

Grand on a monitor? pah, yeah, right lol.

Need a couple more small PC parts to complete the build. Am thinking about painting the case too.
