    Looking for a solid $150-200 IPS Monitor

    So my wife's monitor is going out on her and we are looking for recommendations for a replacement.

    She doesn't want speakers on it and she pretty much only plays League of Legends and WoW. $200 is what we have to spend on it.

    Appreciate any suggestions thanks!

    Any particular reason she wants IPS? For gaming, it might be better to go with a TN panel, and be cheaper too. Or at least be able to get a larger screen for cheaper, anyway.

    I'd probably do something like this, however it's hard for me to get anything smaller than 24" these days

    The only IPS monitors you'd get for $200 are going to be second hand. Tell her to read up on what the strengths of each monitors are.

    I think you should save up and spend ~$350 if you want a good IPS monitor, and really it's worth it. It might take an extra 1-2 months but then you get years of improved gaming, movies, web surfing, editing...
