Try looking around for the Hanns-G monitors. I think everyone agrees they are affordable and great in quality. Heres an example at newegg:<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824254011" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254011</a>

Analogue? whats the difference between that and DVI.... My 7800GT has DVI so I can't have a monitor that isn't DVI (apart from this VGA CRT I have but ive got a DVI- VGA converter for it...)

Ya thats all good minus no DVI. And yes I was showing an example for him to see the Hanns-G not for him to buy it there. I saw he where he was based on currency in his first post. <br />
<br />
That monitor you selected seems to have nice specs, but find a similiar one with DVI.<br />
<br />
Edit:<br />
<br />
DVI > VGA all around.

My m8 has this one... Nice monitor good colour blacks are black and not weird dark green. Good widescreen perfect for gaming and DVD. The monitor has a good overall look and finish to it aswell as performing real nice.<br><br>
And you found it cheaper than Overclockers.co.uk has it... I just went through to payment part on Amazon and it is <b>£129.99 Inc VAT</b> where as Overclockers is <span style="font-family:ARIAL;"><span style="font-size:smaller;"><b>£121.99 Exc VAT</b></span></span> with a total price of <span style="font-family:ARIAL;"><span style="font-size:smaller;"><b>£143.34</b></span></span> before P+P has been added.<br><br>
I think I will be changing my 19" CRT to this one later in the week since its pay day Tuesday and I just bought a XBox 360
