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

Get any 1080p monitor that supports HDCP and some speakers. Built in speakers on a monitor are usually TERRIBLE. --- 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
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. --- http://thecrankyhermit.wikispaces.com/ Year-by-year analysis of the finest gaming has to offer, and (eventually) more!

I would prefer an IPS screen. TN's just don't provide as good a picture quality - color accuracy is relatively poor. --- http://thecrankyhermit.wikispaces.com/ Year-by-year analysis of the finest gaming has to offer, and (eventually) more!
