What monitor to upgrade to with my new gtx 580?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Currently have: Dell E198WFP

What monitor would you recommend I get to compliment my graphics card? I would like something no larger than 24". I don't believe I'll be using 3d, but possibly sometime in the future. I can't remember where I heard this, but I heard

is a good montior. What monitor would you recommend that has a nice crisp display?

Thanks OCN

Dang, those dell screen's are expensive. A bit out of my price range lol. 1k for a screen is a bit much. I have a dell right now and love it, have used it for years. Still works like a charm but doesn't put out the aspect ratios and whatnot that I would like. The acer one I was looking at is $350. Thats about my price range.

you can find a U2410 on the used market

well the OP is using a $500 gpu, so it makes sense to put some coin toward a display to stretch its legs

you can also find 30" screens on the used market from reputable members for $650 shipped and up

Its actually kinda meh...

If you can't afford IPS, if might be worth holding out for some new info on these new samsung displays. supposedly 3D (im hoping for real 120hz) and that thin bezel is going to be perfect if it includes vesa mounts.
