I found a deal at newegg which is a steal and I was wondering if this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - monitor would be suffice to play games in a 1080 res? Mainly FFXIV.

I'm really clueless to technology nowadays (I'm building my first desktop) and I appreciate the responses.

No, that monitor has a (maximum) resolution of 1600x900, somewhat less than 1920x1080 (1080p).

But you can certainly still play and enjoy games at 1600x900.

I wouldn't call it a steal either with many other 20" monitors being only $10 more.

I honestly only have a dead-end budget for $100. I guess I should wait for a discount on a capable monitor or lay low on the monitor until I have enough for it. There isn't any 1080p under 100 is it?

yeah, that's a good monitor. Not great, but good. I have one on my desk at work right now. I'd go for that at that price. It's all my company would spring for.

The cheapest 1080p I see is $110. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008MA9OWA/ Just buy a used monitor and save money. Pretty much every monitor I have I bought used. I go on craigslist as it's quite a bit cheaper and you can check the condition before buying.
