    Thanks for the reply but i've upped my budget to under £200 now as I want a good quality monitor, I think I will go with the Asus VN248H as it does everything I want it to do (and be).

    If you have any other suggestions for under £200 they will be welcome!

    You are on the right path Matt with the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236335 .
    It has one of the lowest response times and best reviews of its kind, and is perfect for gaming and doing graphic arts/photoshop. :) AOC has one of the thinnest borders with 5ms andIPS and here is the amazon link. http://www.amazon.com/AOC-i2367Fh-23-Inch-Screen-Monitor/dp/B009V8F700/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388588908&sr=8-1&keywords=I2367FH . The AOC seems to be the better buy since it is more affordable leaving you some money to put towards PC parts when needed. :)
  3. I'd recommend the Asus PB238TR as it has a better picture quality and more features than the VN248H. The stand is also much more sturdy and adjustable.

    Generally, Amazon has some of the cheapest prices with free delivery and you have up to a month to return and no questions are asked, plus its free to return! If there are better deals elsewhere then I will go with them though.

    Thanks, I have been looking at the AOC however I read that the quality isn't as good, am I right in saying that the AOC has an e-IPS panel and the Asus has an ah-IPS? If so, is there a major difference between the two? And is the Asus worth the extra £50? I am planning in the future to get another monitor (the same one that I get in the net few months) and have a dual screen setup.

    Oh, and I recently upgraded my PC for Christmas and I am running BF4 on ultra however this is on a 19" 1440 x 900 which is 6 years old, hence the need for a new monitor!
  6. I can recommend the HP Pavillion 23xi:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Pavilion-23XI-LCD-Monitor/dp/B00A7MDBA2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388658941&sr=8-1&keywords=hp+23xi

    But I wouldn't buy it from Amazon; you can get it much cheaper elsewhere including PC World or direct from HP. A lovely monitor.
