What size? What manufacturer? As long as it has a good response time of around 2ms or less, then just about anything will do for gaming. 2ms is fast enough to do just about anything needed on PC's today. I know that many might argue about this. But that is what i see.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

AOC 24inch for 175 dollars atm: AOC 2436VW 24" Widescreen HD Monitor: Computer & Accessories

Works fine for me, only time I have a viewing issue is when I'm below the monitor (I lay in my bed and sometimes look upwards at it, its upwards angle is crap. Looking down or from the sides is fine though).
Response time is a little slow at 5ms.
