Hey all!!

For my new build i was just wondering what would be the best monitor setup for around $200? If its dual or triple monitors i would spend arounf $400 on them all.

I will be running:

Case: NZXT Phantom White
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k 3.30 GHz Quad-Core Processor
GPU: MSI Radeon HD6950 2GB
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws-X 8GB DDR3-1600 XM 8-8-8-24-2N 1.5v
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB 3.5 Internal
PSU: Corsair HX-750watt Power Supply

I will be using it for mostly movies and games if that makes a difference. This is my first buidl so yeah feel free to suggest any parts!!

That kind of budget will fetch you a regular TN panel based LCD monitor (may find a few LED backlit options also) who are going to perform all the same.. Thus, you can choose anyone monitor whose design inspires you the most.. At the max you will need to check out the connectivity options.. If I had to recommend one though, it will be the HP 2310e.. Might be a little over your budget but is very attractive and truly desirable..

Talking about construction quality..? Yes its good.. Its sturdy even after being a very thin monitor.. Moreover the design is awesome (as you would have already noted).. Looks somewhat like an Apple cinema HD display..

Yeah I really like it! So also what about the display quality compared to the others in the price range?

Well you have the model number to do a net search yourself.. I saw this monitor recently when I was passing one HP showroom here.. Stuck by design I gave it a look.. The image quality is pretty much consistent with a TN panel based monitor.. Viewing angles are far better than my BenQ E2200HD.. Has no apparent bleeding issues like evident on almost all Samsung displays.. Will require some fine tuning to get the best image though..
