Hi, I just recently built a PC with all parts ordered from a site called Komplett, and I must say I'm glad I went the self-build route . It includes an Intel Q9400 processor and an ATI Radeon HD 4890 graphics card, and frankly my small old monitor from my previous PC doesn't do it justice . So I want to buy a new monitor to go with it, but I don't know which one to choose out of these three:
They're more or less in the same price range, but which one is better?
Also, I'm assuming none of these monitors have built-in speakers so I want to buy one as well but there isn't really much to choose from. I want one for under 100 euros and also it has to be black to go with the rest of the PC. Should I get this one?
On a quick note though, I have a JVC Hi-Fi System lying around which is around 3 years old I reckon. I've read on another website that I can hook it up to my PC using a stereo jack plug. I've checked it and it has an aux/line-in option, so all I need to buy is the plug. Is this a good idea or will a new pair of PC speakers be much better?
I just recently came back from a 3 week holiday so money is a bit tight, if using the Hi-Fi is an ok alternative then I'm all for it
Using the old JVC system will do just fine. You may need a converter to go from 3.5mm jack (computer out) to line in (2xRCA connector). If you were in the US, I'd point you to these two items at monoprice:
