Need Help Choosing a Monitor

Last January I assembled my first PC ever and have been since using a cheap Samsung TV as my monitor. (resolution of only 1366x768) I'm close to the money needed for a new monitor and would like to ask which I should buy.

I opted for these because they were IPS displays with a pretty decent response time for the technology. I am open for a different monitor but keep in mind I don't want to spend more than a little bit over $200. Oh an in case this matters I have a Radeon 6950 Twin Frozr III and am not sure if DVI works with it. I've only ever used HDMI so I'm not sure.

  1. They both look good to me the second monitor has built in speakers, that would be nice if you don't already have speakers, but if you do I say you go for the first monitor.

    I have no need for speakers. And the first one has an HDMI Port. But overall is their any quality differences between the two? Because I can't tell...
  3. I think display wise they are the same. The 1st one looks more elegant while the 2nd one have the swivel & tilt function. The 1st have 3 inputs (DVI,VGA & HDMI) vs the 2nd only having 2 ( DVI & VGA ). So it depends on which features you want more.

    The 6950 have DVI + HDMI + VGA(via adaptor) so you are safe whichever monitor you use.
