Recommend me a Monitor!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I saw the Dell U2311H monitor for $195. Very tempted. A little smaller than what I was looking for though which I was initially looking for 24" +.

I do a lot of forum/ebay hopping, web browsing, some gaming (no MMO), some graphic/web design, and not a whole lot else on a regular basis.

Considering getting 2 monitors as opposed to one. My gaming typically is Left 4 Dead, COD, Supreme Commander 2, and so on. Will be doing more photography in the future.

My total budge is $600, but am looking to spend less if possible. I just want a real decent setup for a great price.

Thanks.

IMO, it depends on how much space you have. When I was first building my PC about 3-4 years ago, I bought a 19-Inch Dell monitor, a few months later, I have my dad that Monitor and got myself a HP w2408. Ever since I've kept that monitor and I've never really had an issue with it, except for all the dust it brings, and also that it does not have any built-in sound.

Samsung P2450H, very nice monitor. I don't know the price in $ but I got mine for £140-150.

The larger versions are also good, they make a 27-inch version for £279
