Light-Matte (or semi-glossy as some call it) in PLS or the newest IPS (Dell U2713WH) is what I prefer.
Having both a matte-PLS and a matte-IPS (older 22" one) side by side I never want too look at that grainy AG coating again.
Punchier made me laugh tongue.gif

My room gets basically no natural sunlight. Behind the screen there is a light but in front of it, only me. Nothing else that causes a reflection off it.

The Dell U2312HM looks like an excellent choice. It's a modern display so very likely uses the light-matte coating as compared to some older screens, but check this to be sure.
Yes, I am sure I want "Full-HD 16:9". The size doesnt really matter as long as its bigger than 17"

Moving foward stay on topic to OP request. We should all respect from hijacking of this thread. If its not what the OP requested its not on topic.
Thank you



Besides that, it seems that the Dell U2312HM has dominated opinions across the internet and will probably be the monitor I get.

The only "but" I have on the Dell U2312HM is no HDMI. Im looking for a HDMI to DisplayPort converter to make sure it exists because if I get a console one day, I want to make sure I can connect it to the display......

One of these will solve that problem.

Edit: Actually, no it won't. You'd have to get a basic DVI -> HDMI adapter ($1.95) and route your audio through your standard audio output.

Your destination also has DVI. HDMI ->DVI adapters are bidirectional and work both ways.

Unless you wanted to save your monitor's DVI to connect to your computer. Then you'd need a DVI switch or something.

HDMI -> DisplayPort adapters are... well, very expensive.

If I had your setup, here's how I'd wire things:

Computer -> U2312hm - DisplayPort from videocard to DisplayPort on monitor
PS3 -> U2312hm - HDMI on PS3 to HDMI->DVI adapter to DVI on monitor

Displayport and HDMI can't be converted passively, so a converter is not something you want to plan on getting. A DVI to HDMI adapter would work, but you would need something to carry the sound from the console (you could probably use an analog output).

atomicmew, congratulations! You are the first member here to be added to my block list. I don't appreciate people who say I am blatantly lying, even when a FORUM MODERATOR backs me up...

Both look great but very game orientated; Movies first then games.

BTW, Im on a GTX 650 Ti if it makes any difference to anyone.

Click RigBuilder (on the top right below the advertisement banner), and then click Create Rig (on the right panel, near the top).

Once you're done, click My Profile (from the top menu bar), scroll down to Your Forum Signature, and click Edit Signature Text. Below the text box, you will have the option to add your rig.
