Question Best budget gaming monitor?

Hello, everyone. I've been looking around for a new monitor. I'm on a budget. I've found some list websites like Best Gaming Monitor 2016 - Budget, G-Sync and 4K Monitors & Best Gaming Monitors of 2016 - that say the BenQ RL2455HM is the best budget monitor. What do you guys think?

I have only had one expierience with a benQ but it was many many years ago and I wasn't at all impressed, AsRock used to be a low end MB company and now make some really good MB's so maybe they've ranked up, just keep researching and see as many reviews as you can when you find a model you like in your budget.

New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB 1600 (2x8gig) - SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250 -Seagate Barracuda 3-TB

Antec 200 - I7-920 - ASUS P6T - Corsair TX650 it's old but still kicking like a mule
2-EVGA GTX 470 in SLI- ocz vertex 3 SSD 128 gig
Seagate Barracuda 1-TB - OCZ DDR3-1600 12 gigs 3x2
Keeps Me Happy :lol:

If I've been helpful, Please rep me

I just bought my BenQ GL2450HM (not sure on the exact difference between that and the BenQ RL2455HM, but mine was 10 less than yours, so its very budget, and mines is 2ms response time to your 1ms) and I love it. Fantastic quality for what I paid for (i was upgrading from VGA, I was a bit behind), mine doesn't have adjustable height, but you can tilt it to face higher or lower which is useful. Onboard speakers are decent for onboard speakers, but I use my external speakers. Build quality is good, comes with all the features you'd expect, like being able to change light, contrast, audio, etc. I use mine for gaming mainly and it's great for that, so since yours is focused on being a gaming monitor, I can only imagine it performs even better.

I think there's a reason BenQ dominates for the cheaper monitor market, and I don't tend to see many bad reviews for their monitors. Hope you find what you're looking for
