I hope that I'm posting in the right forum. It seems like I am.
So, I'm getting a new computer but I don't know what monitor to get, and I would appreciate if anyone could help me out.
Price rage: $130 - $170 (Lower is better)
When I'm planning on buying: Anywhere until now to late November
What I would like: 22" - 25" and 1920 x 1080 resolution. Put simply, I want the best that my money can buy, but I'm willing to sacrifice in order to prevent maxing out my price range.
What I'm using it for: Gaming, web browsing, movies, photo editing, word processing, video watching, etc.
Someone told me that you want to look for 1920 x 1080 resolution, 5ms response rate, LED-backlighting, and VESA mounting.
Beyond that, I don't really know what else to say, which is why I have the following questions:
1) What does one look for in a (gaming) monitor?
2) I have a 1440 x 900 19" at least 4 year monitor. It's held it's weight, and although it does have a few problems, I would like to be able to use it as a second monitor. Is this advisable? Would it be a hassle to have a smaller monitor with a larger one? Is this fully feasible?
3) Is there anything I should know that I haven't asked about?
4) What are your suggestions?
Thank you very much in advance, have a wonderful day.
