Input lag of Alienware AW2518HF

Has anyone tested the input lag of this monitor? I bought it and can't tell if it's got more input lag than my old Aoc G2460PQU.
Going from 24 inch to 25 inch did make my aim less precise, feels like I need to bump up the dpi to aim faster.

You can resize the image then to be 24" by adding a custom resolution and disable scaling so you get a black area around it. There's no need to get a new monitor for that if you can do the same using a custom res.

A windowboxed 1824x1026 resolution (5% less), or 1728x972 resolution (10% less) is a good solution for size equality with a 24", if the size is causing problems.

lol, you're right but this does help if I can, my AOC G2460PQU had a menu option to shrink the size but I don't see a setting in the menu for this Alienware monitor. Hmm, I will try that though, thanks.
