Hi guys,

Right so I have just upgraded my build by adding a HD 5870, Win 7 Home, and 2 GB of ram.

I am still waiting for the parts to be delivered but this will be my final build!

OS: Windows 7 Home 64 bits
CPU: Intel E8400 OC @ 3.6 Ghz
CPU Cooler: Scythe Ninja II
Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro
Memory: 4GB 800Mhz DDR2
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X
Case and PSU: Antec Sonata III with 500W PSU
Storage: Western Digital, Caviar Blue S-ATA, 640 Go, 16 Mo

I currently have a 20.1" Belinea 102030W monitor at 1680x1050 with the following specs:
• Brightness: 300cd/m²
• Contrast: 800:1
• Response time: 8ms
• Viewing angle: 178°/178°
• Panel: Premium MVA

and I'm considering getting something bigger that would be great for gaming and occasionally films. I am thinking of looking at a 1920x1200 because of the larger working area for my office work.

Then really I am looking at spending up to £350, and the bigger the monitor the better (27" or 28") as long as the quality is there for my budget.

What would you guys recommend?

Many thanks

Both monitors are great, and plus, with costco excellent return policy, you can practically return the unit back anytime, for any reason also.

Just be aware that spending £350 will only get you a TN panel monitor. You'll get better response times, but viewing angles will be narrower; typically ranging between 160° to 170°. Colors should be fine for the average consumer.
