Gateway monitor or Acer Monitor

November 21, 2012 1:25:31 AM

OK, so I know it's going to be black Friday (that's when I plan on buying it). I'm looking to buy two monitors since my last monitor broke on me while moving and I realize with my gaming, movie watching photo editing and work, it would help to have the second monitor, especially with my girlfriend moving in next month, I know she'll want to watch movies while I'm working(I sold off my TV due to lack of use).

Photo editing: Photoshop and Lightroom on windows, and GIMP on Linux
Games: Call of duty Black Ops 2, Skyrim, GTA IV, Mass Effect(All) and Need for speed mostwanted(Original)

I have narrowed it down to 3 choices, I don't care for included speakers since I have a good speaker set up already.

The instant gratification(because i can just pick it up on Friday):

Gateway Monitor

And the two short waits that are a bit more pricey:

Acer Monitor


This was my previous monitor, I was overly satisfied with it, only complaint that I would feel eye strain after three hours but I use that as a sign for a break.

AOC Monitor

Thanks in advance for advice.
