Best monitor under £200?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just wondering what monitor to get for my system.

Getting a antec truepower 550w and a 7900gt then a monitor upgrade

Dont need amazing res. 1024 x 768 will do, but then i suppose i wouldnt be using the graphs card to its ability.

Are there any recommended monitors or doesn't it really matter what i choose?

Thanks, Iced.

I would say this

EDIT: actually although that site says its res is 1680x1050 its actually only 1400x1050
If you could shell out a bit more you could get 1 of these when they come out early november....

Thanks man. Ebuyer's a legendary site, didn't even think of looking on there lol
Looks quite nice and higher res than i wanted.
But mostly its 20" which is also bigger than i expected for the money
Will be getting this unless a sweeter deal comes along.

I would get the £130 Hanns G Gaming 6ms 19" Widescreen on Play.com with free postage. - I bought this but had to send it back as I ordered the non widescreen one and I spent the refund

Its a great monitor for the money though
