Alright... So right now i have the following on my PC Envision 22" Monitor (5yrs old) Cheap no name 17" monitor. Video Card: GTX 275 card that supports VGA & DVI the 17" i want to replace now & the other will be in Feb.
What is a good 20 to 23" monitor for around $200 (my cap is actually 250ish)
What i do with it:
HTML Work Video Gaming (WoW, POTBS, Deadspace, LFD2) Watching Netflix on one screen, while i game on the other (addicted to Pawnstars & Anything with zombies) Play Blue's Clues on one screen, so my son is occupied while i game on the other. :P
What i don't do with it: Stream 1080p movies Blue Ray movies Video Editing Latest Cutting Technology Games.
So Any Suggestions? I was thinking Newegg. Local Bestbuy/office depot/staples didn't have much.
Prefer a reliable brand. For instance we have a lot of ASUS products and had good history with them ( love their warranty's)
Ohh! last thing.. Im looking into getting a Dual Monitor Stand so i would prefer a MESA/ect.. Wall Mounting Capable Screen. I will give this up if it means i can get a better deal.
Thanks for any info.. I will need to make a choice today so my wife can have it wrapped for the holidays
Current Plans Today: Order Monitor 1 Feb Order Monitor 2 May: Order Dual Monitor Stand (if the monitors support it)
Can a 1900x resolution TV work as my monitor? (i can't really deal with greater then 1600 resolution)
Newegg's got free 3 day shipping on it, so it should get there in time. If you wanted a TV to use as a monitor, you'd just have to make sure that it has a PC input(VGA), at least with the current GPU that you have. Otherwise you'd need to pick up a DVI to HDMI cable.
Would that work ok? I mean a 1900 resolution tv with VGA in or HDMI would that work just as good as a monitor? or is their some draw backs ?
I have a 25" 1080p monitor, use both VGA and DVI to HDMI with no issues. I also have a 2nd PC connected to a 50" 1080p plasma. Works just the same.
