Monitor Suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just built my new PC and am in search for a quality monitor to harness the power of the radeon 6950 card. I'm not knowledgeable in the monitor department, so hopefully you can help out.

Looking for a monitor less than $300, will be used primarily for gaming/movies. From my understanding, I should be looking at something along the lines of...

24 inch
IPS
low response time
1080p, resolution larger than 1920x1080?
120hz
backlit led

Is there any monitor that falls into the above criteria? Should I be focusing towards a TN over IPS?

ASUS Ve276Q. Goes for around $300. 27 inch. Has Displayport input, which is supported by the 6950. 60HZ if fine unless you are a hardcore CSS or Quake player. It is a TN but looks great.

I don't think there's such monitor on the market, at least not yet. Even if there is then I doubt you're willing to spend money on that 24". Like this one for example

I forgot to mention what I currently have:
SAMSUNG P2770HD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-392-_-Product

I plan to use this for other things and am just looking for a monitor that's reasonably priced, has high quality deep colors and is good for gaming/media around 24-27 inches. Or should I just pocket the money already in my pocket and forget about upgrading?
