Hi there! i'm trying to pick an upgrade for my 5 year old dell E228WFP. I very rarely have the money to make such a purchase and want the "biggest bang for my buck." I am disabled and therefore use my pc for everything(games, tv, reading, movies, etc.).

Any opinions on http://www.provantage.com/hewlett-packard-hp-xw477a8-ab...
or monitors in that range?
my gpu is a GeForce GTX 560 Ti

thanks!

That monitor is very nice, the only thing you need to keep in mind is that the higher the resolution of your monitor, the more power and stress it puts on the GPU, the GTX 560 Ti will have no issue driving it for video and applications, but for gaming you may notices a big difference in FPS unless you already have a 1920 X 1080 monitor because then you are only adding a few more pixels on. If you are ok with a little more of a frame drop for games then I would go for it and in the far future upgrade your GPU.

I have a Dell ST2220L and am very happy with it. I have never read a bad review on it (amazon/Cnet/etc).

Its a 1920x1080 (1080p) and has good contrast, and has a 21.5'' screen.

Hope this helps you out.

EDIT: The monitor you linked to is also a very good choice. The monitor i recommended is cheaper at around $125, but seeing your budget, your HP will do fine.

For me I'm using Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM 23" IPS monitor...

So far no regret for buying it...
