I would love to buy the ASUS VE247H monitor for my PC but I'm kinda a newbie on screens.

These are the specs I'm having a problem with:

Analog Signal Frequency : 30~83 KHz(H)/ 50~76 Hz(V)
Digital Signal Frequency : 30~83 KHz(H)/ 50~76 Hz(V)

What does these mean?

Am I going to have a standard frame rate @60Hz using 1080p resolution?

50-76 Hz refresh rate on the monitor. Always look at the vertical. If you need a reminder, think of VSync. Stands for Vertical Sync.

Frame rate is something different.
Monitors have refresh rates.
Games and movies have framerates.

I am assuming it does at least 60Hz at 1080p, which is its native resolution.
 
Yeah, ignore the horizontal frequency. You only need to look at that on really high resolution monitors.

e.g. The max resolution of this monitor is 1920x1080. That means it has to make 1080 horizontal scans for each complete vertical scan. So if your vertical refresh is 60 Hz, then it needs to scan horizontally at 60*1080 = 64800 Hz, or 64.8 kHz.

For this particular monitor, 76 * 1080 = 82 KHz. So the 83 KHz max horizontal frequency means it can do the full 1920x1080 at 76 Hz.

On some of the higher res monitors, the horizontal scan frequency limits the max vertical frequency at high resolution. So a monitor might be able to do 2560x1440 @ 60 Hz, but needs to drop down to 48 Hz to do 2880x1620. That's really the only time you need to look closely at the horizontal scan frequency.

Thanks a lot for that answer. Very understandable and simple!
