I noticed there was another (very informative) 'new monitor' thread, but I figured I'd make a new one since my situation is a little different.
So the dear old Sharp LL-172A-B that I've been using for the last 7-8 years, over multiple PCs, has finally upped and died. He had a good, long, varied life, and shall be missed.
However, I am an unemployed graduate on jobseekers, and every recent monitor article I've read seems to cover these £200-£300 monsters that I absolutely cannot justify buying, and every friendly piece of advice I've recieved has also pointed me toward spending that much money. I just cant. Besides, while my rig is fairly reasonable (Q6600 cpu, GTS450 card, 4 gig ram, etc.), I'm sure it would grind to a halt on one of these ubermonitors. On my old 1280x1024 5:4 monitor I could happily run any modern game at top end graphics at a resolution I was comfortable with.
So, for those who are still with me, I need a reasonable monitor for under £100 that will suit my gaming needs. I'm not too fussed about widescreen, having neither owned one or felt the need to purchase one, but they seem to be fairly ubiquitous nowadays so I'm open to suggestions.
I was thinking perhaps something along the lines of this 19 inch LG W1946S-BF.AEU. Any thoughts?
Cheers in advance.
