Can you recommend a 1080p PC monitor I can connect my PS3 to?

Something with in-built speakers and maybe a switch so I can change between PC and PS3?...

Get any 1080p monitor that supports HDCP and some speakers. Built in speakers on a monitor are usually TERRIBLE.

How can I tell if it supports HDCP?

Do you have a max price point?

Here's one for less than 200...

Just make sure it has DVI (or DisplayPort), HDMI, and an audio-out port. My monitor, a Dell U2410 has that, and here's what I can do - the PC connects to the DVI, and a PS3 can connect to the HDMI. If I play PS3, I can connect the monitor's audio-out to my speaker's aux-in. Then the PS3's audio passes through the monitor and into my speakers. When I want to use the PC again, I just switch the monitor to DVI, and unplug the cable from the speaker's aux-in, and normal PC audio resumes.

And if it supports HDMI, it supports HDCP. I think this is a safe assumption.

So I'm thinking of buying BenQ GL2460HM:

Would this work? Is it any good?

I would prefer an IPS screen. TN's just don't provide as good a picture quality - color accuracy is relatively poor.
