New Gaming Monitor ~$150 Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Gaming Monitors Peripherals Product Last response: September 27, 2012 1:56 AM in Computer Peripherals Share The Waffle Mafia September 26, 2012 9:42:32 PM I'm working on a new home system for gaming and need to pick out a monitor. I don't have the biggest budget and am looking to get something that will work well with a Radeon 7970. Purchase Date: Within the next week Budget: Around $150 but I can maybe go a little higher Usage: Gaming mostly with possibly a video or two Preferred Website: Newegg, Amazon, or Ebay Country: US Brand Preference: None Size: At least 20" but preferably closer to 24", widescreen Resolution: At least 1920x1080 Panel Type: No preference LED Backlight: Not a huge issue Speakers: Preferable, though this is negotiable Wall Mount: Not needed Stand functions: Not a huge issue I'm looking for the best image quality, and as it's for gaming, a low refresh rate is preferable. I've found this (http://preview.tinyurl.com/malatz) on sale on newegg and it looked pretty good, but I'm open to any suggestions as well.

Frankly though, you'd be better off appropriating funds from your $400+ dollar graphics card and putting it towards a decent monitor, $150 is rather low end. m 0 l The Waffle Mafia September 27, 2012 12:35:06 AM sk1939, thanks for the quick response. I know the graphics card is little much, but I figured I'd go high end on either that or the monitor and then upgrade the other in the future when I have a little bit more cash. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
