Best Monitor for $150

Hello, could anyone suggest a great monitor for $150. I will use the monitor for mainly gaming. I'd prefer the monitor to be 23" since that's what I'm use to but it doesn't matter too much.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009483
    Good size, 1080p, IPS panel, low response time, thin bezel, great price!
  2. No! get this> http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-GL2450E-Widescreen-1920x1080-Brilliant/dp/B00AK5F6LI/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1374875939&sr=1-3&keywords=gl2450

    Good response time
    60Hz refresh rate (so if you hgave vsync on you can play at a constant FPS of 60.
    Nice and thin
    LED so the backlight emits truer colours
    24"
    Native resolution

    And best of all it is a really good price. I have one at it is fantastic for playing games. My uncle has the older version that this and he can play Crysis 3 in lovely 1920x1080
  3. I mean it is a good monitor Sophiebeth100 has suggested but you wont see a major difference if you are planning to use it solely for gaming.
  4. Agreed. Only difference is panel type and size. :)
  5. Azrael47, unfortunately that's a good bit over budget in $$$.

    sophiebeth100 will a low response time affect gaming?
  6. The lower the response time, the better. 2ms is what most people like to have for gaming, but it's impossible to tell the difference between 2ms and 5ms without some sort of benchmarks involved - 5ms is perfect for gaming :)
  7. Are you sure, it is only £135 in sterling. A lower response time for a monitor means the image quality is better, However the human eye cannot see any difference (or only little) difference between 5ms and 2ms. even 8ms is acceptable fore gaming.
  8. Yeah, Google converter says that's about $210.

    Oh, thanks for explaining that.

    I just found this monitor on Amazon, how does it stack against that one sophiebeth100.

  9. That is a good monitor excellent response time 1080p, looks good, LED backlight and is quality assured as it is from Asus.

    That would be a very good monitor for gaming.

    GBP doesn't translate directly into dollars as the tax over here is crazy-high! A £135 monitor would probably be $160/170.

    Doesn't have an IPS panel, which I personally prefer. However other than that, it's a great choice!
  11. Google once again lies to me :pfff:

    Well thanks for all the help sophiebeth100 and Azrael47!:D
