I have a sceptre x9, no idea if that is decent or pure crap.

Do I need to be updating my monitors? If so what are some good non-300$+ monitors?

From a mid to expensive monitor - no

Really any 23-24" 1080p monitor seems to be the standard these days. This one seems to be really good and it's not $300. If you want a higher resolution it will cost more, 1440p will be closer to $300.

It's not a joke, my current monitor has an hdmi port but that doesn't mean it has good quality.

Or maybe it does, idk.

I went from a 1024x768 tv to a 1080p ips monitor, the difference was huge.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
