New monitor for home? too many choices
My wife broke the power button on one of my monitors last night, so it's time to look for a new one! It's served me well for 5-6 years, but has a line on the LCD now, it's brightness isn't what it used to be, it's only 1280x1024, and now has a broken power button.
I'm looking to upgrade this significantly, but there's just so many damned choices out there.
Monitor will primarily be for gaming (FPS games, LOTRO, or Eve online), but I do watch some movies/TV on it from the sofa I have behind my chair, so I need reasonable viewing angles, AND/OR decent tilt/swivel options.
What I want:
-22" to 27" max, preferably around the 24" mark.
-1920x1080 or 1920x1200 resolution.
-Decent refresh rate for FPS gaming
-Enough colour range to be decent for Full 1080p HD/blue ray movies (I have a BR drive in my PC)
-HDMI and DVI connection
What I'd like if I can:
-Tilt/Swivel/height adjustment stand
-VGA, DVI and HDMI input for using with any PC/input
And budget wise, Absolute roof of £300, but would prefer the £200-250 mark.
Anyone got any suggestions from experience?
PC wise I have an I7 950 with a Sapphire Radeon 5870 graphics card, 6GB memory, BR drive and running windows 7 in case this affects the choice.
