Esports News – The more you know about the inner workings of a computer, the easier it is to make informed decisions about what type of equipment you should use for competitive or casual gaming. There might be just one or two pieces of hardware that could help you excel in the most stressful situations while playing. So if you’re a beginner, it is necessary to understand the types of brands and products that can guide you in getting started.
Given that account, this week’s episode of Tipify gaming equipment series features two of the best gaming monitors for beginners. For new gamers who want to take the leap, make sure you check out the LG 25UM56P and Asus VG245HE.
Gaming gets real with LG’s cheap and ultrawide monitor for beginners: the LG 25UM56P. It is priced at $190 USD but offers features and dimensions exceeding the actual price. Its 25-inch screen with 1080p resolution is enough to carry 5ms response time, 60Hz refresh rate, 5,000,000:1 color contrast, and 0.2286mm pixel pitch. You are ensured that the screen won’t produce any flickering, ghosting, and blurring while handling demanding gaming. Additionally, you can also explore a more thorough setting to find your preferences as a beginner. The LG25UM56P allows the user to adjust the six color axis, gamma, color temperature, and sharpness.
Now, let’s get into the special features. Since the monitor is ultrawide, it has plenty of space. Don’t let these spaces go to waste and use the Split Screen feature where you can divide the monitor into 4 screens. There’s a total of 14 different layouts for dividing the screen, so you can multitask comfortably while gaming. Another feature that is actually common among monitors produced by LG is the Dual Controller. It allows the user to connect two PCs or gaming consoles to the monitor and have pictures of both devices on screen. Last but definitely not the least are the Dynamic Action Sync and the Black Stabilizer features that users can incorporate to the game. The Black Stabilizer brightens up the screen once the game takes you to darkened areas of the game, while the Dynamic Action Sync minimizes the amount of input lag that hinders you to take timely responses.
The Asus VG245HE is an awesome entry-level gaming monitor for beginners. It’s simple and affordable but can shock and save you under pressure. Among the neat features that it can offer, we have 1080p display, 75Hz refresh rate, 252.6 nits on the light meter, 3.29 color accuracy, and 1ms response time. It has a slightly smaller screen size than the LG 25UM56P, but its 24-inch screen is equally built for the perfect Full HD console gaming experience. The retail price in most marketplaces is at $199 USD.
Exploring the features, the monitor evidently puts the Instant Input Technology at the forefront. It offers a lag-free experience and two low input lag HDMI ports, so you can enjoy super smooth visuals and keep it hooked up to two devices. Secondly, the monitor boasts an AMD FreeSync™ technology that helps eliminate image tearing for fast gameplay over HDMI input for smooth transitions. You won’t experience screen tearing and choppy frame rates whenever you’re playing, this gives you the upper hand in first-person shooters, racing, and real-time strategy games. For resolution and graphics, Asus incorporated the Game Visual Technology to the monitor so you can have six preset display modes to optimize visuals for different types of content; this can easily be accessed through a hotkey or in the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
