Just got my MSI GTX 760 and now it's time to get a bigger Monitor.

I'm currently using a Dell 2311x, 1080p, 23". If you know this monitor, it's decent but it's overly bright and I want something bigger for immersion, but I'm on a budget.

I only have about $200-300 to spend.

I don't know the differences between monitors at all, besides size and resolution. I'm not a enthusiast by any means, I just want something decent with accurate colors. I don't generally play FPS, so response time isn't a huge factor.

Since monitors are pretty expensive I was also thinking maybe I should just get a 32" HDTV but I don't know...

Also, 1080p is all I'm after.

Thanks.

How far away from the monitor are you going to be? 23-24" is pretty much the ideal size for 1080p monitors.

I'm waiting to see what Nvidia does with Gsync before I purchase a new monitor. Just a suggestion to look up the technology and see if you're willing to wait a bit.

That seems really close. A 1080p 32" TV will not look very good that close up. There's a reason monitors usually go up to 2560x1440 in the 27-30" range.

Eh, I've been sitting 5 ft from a 46" TV the last couple days and it hasn't been too terrible (besides trying to read some of the text).

I don't really want to wait for newer tech., I just want to get a bigger screen asap.

You could also try this. Not quite as high quality as the Dell I posted, but it's 3" larger and has a super thin bezel.
