Nope, I wouldn't do it
Well, it depends on what you have already I guess. Do you have speakers and a sub? Do you need the speakers in the Monitor? What resolution do you want to play at? Are you going to use it for heavy gaming?
I could care less about the speakers. Looking to spend under $200 and 22-24" monitor. We're selling it at my store for $185, or order a monitor from newegg for 179.99 Asus. Didn't seem like a bad deal figured I'd reach out.
Edit: I will be using HDMI connection
