Gamers with less powerful desktops and consoles don’t need expensive 4K monitors. In fact, you can push the envelope with just how much performance you can get at 1080p resolution. For those who do seek a cheaper alternative but want just as much performance, the AOC G2460PF might be the answer for you. The G2460PF displays games in faithful colours at high frame rates. However, its slightly less than average speakers may be an off point to some, but the overall package does more than enough to exceed that flaw. The G2460PF is thoroughly good at doing its job, and that is what most competitive gamers need.

Build Quality & Design
Red and black are staple colours of hardcore PC gaming, and the G2460PF has them in spades. With a thick black stand and a red frame around the monitor, the design is fairly attractive, and not nearly as aggressive as the colour scheme would suggest. It’s not the most stylish monitor, but it will definitely blend into any kind of setup. Having a modest design like this allows you to use it for more than just gaming. This design lets you to focus more on what is on the screen, rather than how the screen itself looks.
The 24-inch monitor is very simple to set up. All you have to do is connect the stand, then lock it into place with a sliding plastic ring to ensure your pesky wires stay in their spots. With a slight amount of pressure, you can get the monitor to move up and down, as well as rotate it up to 90 degrees. The screen also moves back and forth, from -5 degrees to 20 degrees, letting you find an angle that suits your tastes as per your set up. All this manoeuvrability would generally make people wary of the parts that are most likely to break, but AOC has built the monitor to a fairly confident standpoint, so you can comfortably adjust the monitor to suit your needs.
I really put the monitor through its paces with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, DragonBall FighterZ, Warframe, Gran Turismo Sport, For Honor, and Fortnite in order to test the different genres respectively. The monitor did a fantastic job of displaying the action across the board.
Whether I was caught up in a Team Deathmatch with nothing more than one clip of ammo or seeing how fast I could push a Nissan GTR around the LeMans circuit, the screen rendered the action perfectly. It showed me frame rates between 30 and 130fps with no trouble whatsoever. The monitor is equipped with AMD FreeSync compatibility, which means the G2460PF is best-suited with Radeon graphics cards. I tested the monitor using a Nvidia 980 GPU; the frame rates were slightly lower, but nothing that the naked eye would ever notice. Regardless of which GPU you’re using, you can expect the display to render at high frame rates with no discernible lag and an admirably fast 144Hz refresh rate.
