That isn't a very good monitor. It only has a VGA input, which is why it is so cheap as manufacturers must pay a license fee to include HDMI. 19" is also quite small as well.
I don't think I can help you much, your budget is too low. I don't buy cheap electronics, especially monitors. If you are going to be staring at the thing for several hours a day over several years you may as well spend a little more to enhance that experience dramatically.
At minimum you should get a monitor with HDMI and a 20"+ screen that is 1080p. --- Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??

man the community is really not looked at very highly at is it. so many assumptions of rage lol. i just took it to my friends house to watch anime until he fixed his TV. since my monitor was the next biggest thing we had. i put it face down in the back seat thinking that it'll be best incase anything falls on it, it wouldn't hit the screen. i didn't realize that even as a flatscreen it was too much weight on the back and i guess squished my monitor.
sorry i didn't rage like most of the people you guys assume me to be.
thanks for that monitor link though. it'll do for now thanks. --- Intel i5-4750 3.2Ghz / 2X 4GB G. Skill Ripjaw 1333 / 2 TB HDD / Geforce GTX 580 / 500W 80+ bronze
