So, i've been picking up some core parts for a new rig...and i'm trying not to make the same mistake i made last time ( asus 20" blah monitor )
I'm undecided on either cheaping out and going with a 5770 or stepping up to a 5850 or gtx 470. (single card setup)
I have found little for up to date resources for monitor reviews.
I would like something in the 1920x1080 res, 24" or above is inviting but, i would give up size for good performance and quality (22") , comments i've seen in some of the thread's here have steered me towards L.E.D. TFT
it keeps in my price range and apparently is good for gaming.
I would like to find something with good connectivity options least one HDMI, DVI,
Why is Display Port not standard on Monitors these days, It's ashame how unattuned one technology is with the other (monitor/GPU's) most newer ATI cards come with either Display ports or mini Display Port the 59xx's only come with Display ports where as GTX 4xx's are DVI still i wonder which will be more mainstream?
3. Internet usage
buying options are limited locally (best buy, Sam's Club) so will prolly be the egg
I just setup the SCEPTRE X270W-1080P today (your first link). I haven't gamed with yet, but it's a vast improvement over my Samsung 220BW, which is about to become the second monitor on my gaming rig. And it's on sale right now with free shipping at newegg!
Don't be scared away by the response time either, TN panels have great GTG times, or gray to gray, which actually tells you nothing about how it will perform because GTG is a useless measurement. It is BTB, black to black, BTW, black to white, CTC, color to color, WTW, white to white, and OTF, on to off, that actually matter, but those aren't listed.
I see no good reason for going with any other monitor.
Yeah, they should remove "Display" from the "Graphics and Display" title.
I prefer monitors with IPS panels myself. However, they generally cost more money than the average consumes are willing to pay... Like my LCD monitor in my sig.
The dell is only $270! God I wish I had that deal when I bought my BenQ. I had an old non-widescreen 19" IPS monitor and I wanted the full 1080p glory so I bought the only monitor I could afford, a refurbished BenQ G2400W for $350. I've come to hate the menu and TN panel that I have with this monitor, but that was my only option.
