Go check out a pawn shop for monitors. They have horrible resale value, so you may be able to score a sweet deal. --- http://puu.sh/8IK8Q/8e25ebacb7.jpg Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.
http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-W2053TX-lcd-monitor is your current monitor, for the record. As for what you should get, well, it depends. I don't like 27" displays -- every single one I've used regardless of panel or resolution has hurt my eyes, I don't know why, perhaps it has to do with how close I sat to them, but I'm not really bothered. I don't go above 24" now. I think 23-24" is the sweet spot, personally, but it depends on your preference. --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
