I bought the VH238H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236117 $40.00 cheaper than a 23" Samsung i was about to buy at the local Costco. The new monitor size is going to take a bit of getting used to in WoW but it is perfect in FPS's.
same monitor i have for my 570 :P
it's a beautiful monitor, got my xbox hooked up to the dvi port too (i never played my xbox on the tv coz it wasn't where i liked to sit) :P
yeah, i moved from a 17 inch laptop to this beast, the size does take getting used to, but you'll enjoy it
I really wish I could put a monitor like that right next to the one I have now and see how different they are. I love this one I have, it's awesome. It's an old Gatewa monitor from about 3 years ago almost now, 22" 1680x1050 UltraContrast 2000:1. HDMI support too. :3
i probably have the best set up over anyone here....check it
Regarding monitors, it's amusing to see that even the best monitors on Newegg have 90% of their negative feedback related to "inbuilt speakers aren't good" or something of the sort. I mean seriously, that's the equivalent of complaining about a motherboard "integrated graphics can't run Crysis, removing an egg for that". Jesus.
Just upgraded my old laptop slightly (my parents use it as a media PC). A friend was nice enough to let me buy a Windows 7 license through him (university) so got it extremely cheap, which to my expectation got rid off all the problems I have had with Vista (internet disconnects, video tearing, corrupt/static sound and so on). It now also holds a (much faster) 500Gb HDD (Seagate Momentus TX 7200rpm, with a built in 4Gb SSD unit) as well as 4Gb RAM (1066Mhz). I also managed to clock the CPU to 1.73Ghz (up from 1.6).
I was going to get them a proper HTPC but they are far from interested. Besides they really need to get a better TV first...
