First off, I searched and looked through multiple pages of topics on this board about monitors, but there were so much different responses and specs involved so here I am making a new one.
Now straight to the chase,
Goal: Looking for a good HD monitor for both PC and console gaming. Price Range: $200, willing to go up to $250 if needed. GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Keep in mind that i'm Canadian so prices will vary.
P.S. if anyone from my previous build topics see this, I have successfully assembled it and am quite happy with the result so far, thank you all for your help. --- And on the 8th day God said "Let there be fivehead!" and it was good. - wonderbreadman
I'm not a monitor guru, but any 1080p monitor should be fine. You should be spending more than 200 on a 1080p 60hz monitor. --- i5-3570K| MAXIMUS V GENE| ASUS DCUII 670| CORSAIR XMS3 8GB| CORSAIR 350D| INTEL 520 180GB| CORSAIR H110i| CORSAIR AX750
I beg to disagree. $200 is probably the sweet spot, but you don't have to spend more than that. I just got an ASUS 24" for $180, not on sale either.

I think that should read, "You shouldn't be spending more than 200 on a 1080p 60hz monitor." --- i7-920 @ 3.6 // 770 GTX // 12 GB G.Skill Sniper Ram // PS3 // 360 FiiO e9+17 // AD700 + M50 // Deck Legend + 82 // DAS Ultimate S
Yeah... do you mean 1080p? Because monitors have been "HD" for as long as they've offered higher resolution than old-school TVs. --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23

I bought the ASUS 247h-p monitor about a week ago. It's pretty sweet and still on sale on Amazon. Not sure about Canadian Amazon. --- "Why is it whenever someone says 'with all due respect' they really mean 'kiss my ass'?"-Ashley, Mass Effect High School Relationships: 99.9% Failure
Yeah I meant 1080p haha, well I thought it wouldn't be a big of a deal compared to other hardware, but just wanted to make sure. Alright, I think i'll go with an ASUS monitor, thanks guys. --- And on the 8th day God said "Let there be fivehead!" and it was good. - wonderbreadman
I have an Asus IPS monitor I paid about $160 for (MSRP $190), US pricing. Really happy with it and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, it's a 24" but the model number eludes me, I'd have to check my amazon order history to give you the exact one I bought. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
