Thanks for your reply. This monitor is highly recommended by the following monitor thread:

It is an IPS panel, not hardcore gaming monitor, but an excellent office editing, multimedia, casual gaming and all around type of screen. It seems to be the cheapest one I can find for such a IPS monitor. I would love to hear your suggestion :-)
