Thank you a lot!!!!

Once again, bs. However I don't have the time to go there again.

That being said, everyone is missing the point for this guy. He wants to read the fine lines and for that, he would benefit from having a 2560x1600 resolution at 165hz.

That's about it!

p.s. This should be my last post.

I read your posts in that thread. I did read some good things about that BENQ monitor, but Isn't avaible in my country.

I never thought about monitor resolution. hmmmm

This the closest I can describe the feeling I have when working

And, as Chief said earlier, higher Hz will help me solve this problem!

165Hz is good, too.

If you need higher resolution, such as 2560x1440, I witnessed a really, really crisp 2560x1440 monitor at 240Hz, the Lenovo Legion Y27gq. It was pretty much the clearest-motion 1440p I had ever seen to date. Unfortunately, we are not sure when it is out in which countries.

1440p may be better, but it depends on the software you use. If your trading software is designed for 1080p because you need to read bigger text, then you have a botique variety. I can confirm that 1080p240 (on a good 240Hz monitor) has twice the clarity of 1080p120. The extra edge of 240Hz may be worth it over 120Hz.

Now, if you want motion blur reduction, I do highly recommend a lower refresh rate to eliminate strobe crosstalk, then I'm able to read ultra-fast-scrolling-text without strobe crosstalk. In my experience, strobed 240Hz has way too much strobe crosstalk for text-reading.

120Hz should be your minimum, 165Hz is good, and 240Hz is even better (depending on the resolution you need).

This is such a great forum! You are doing a wonderful jog!

And, Ithank you for the things I learned here.

About the monitors, my number one choice would be the Benq 2740, but it isn´t available in my country.

So, there are two monitors left. the acer 27 XB271HU 144hz gsync ULMB and the 27 LG 27gk750-f 240hz.

And, after so many bad reviews about the LG, I think i will have to let go the 240Hz =(

I tried the 24,5'' 240Hz. They are awesome, but too small for me =(

Thank you for all the help, guys!

Yes, it can be turned on regardless of application.
