    Need some help picking a new monitor.

    My mother offered to buy me a monitor when she comes to visit. Only thing is it has to be from overstock.com.

    http://www.overstock.com/Electronics...4/product.html

    Are the two Im looking at. Ive never had a 27in monitor so Im not too sure if that would be good for a general use/gaming main display. I dont know, maybe someone wanted to look thru what overstock has and point me in a good direction? I only want hdmi and lcd. Bit iffy on led as it was a bit bright for me the last time I tested one out.

    From those two you'd want the 24" one. 24" is really the max you wanna go for 1080p, 27" you'll start seeing lack of pixel density.

    That one does have better reviews on newegg then the one I picked. Thanks.

    Yeah I looked at the ips one, I would jump on it but I really want to stay 24'' and up.
