$220 budget for a new monitor. Help me please

#1Stalker415Posted 3/28/2014 9:23:15 PM
Currently I have a 1680x1050 and want to upgrade to something nicer. Ideally I will keep my current one to use as a 2nd monitor for browsing while gaming on the new one. What is out there that would be good around my budget?


Specs:
i7 930@ 4gz
12gb ram
GTX480 *upgrading in two months*

That's a pretty good deal. A bit lower on Newegg if you use V.Me to checkout and use the promo code.

This is a good choice if you want a super glossy screen monitor

I'd also recommend this monitor.

Terrible price for a TN panel that isn't capable of 120hz. They're also cheaper on Amazon.
