I don't know much about moniters but just any decent widescreen.
Additional Comments: I'm a writer and heavy RPG gamer though I do a lot of my gaming on X-box. I love MMOs like WoW and TESO so I'm looking for a budget build to play those comfertably.
While gaming, I typically play in Window Mode and have music playing, an IM Chat open, and firefox going all at the same time.
I don't know if this will change anything but I will NOT be playing any kind of fps or heavy graphic game like Battlefield 3 or Crysis, I play those on my X-box. This computer will strictly be used for MMOs.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:
Looking for a decent computer to upgrade so that I can keep my laptop strictly for school.
