Default Help me choose a Monitor!

Hey team,
Very impressed with the knowledge and input from the community here, so I thought i'd get some advice!

I'm looking to get a new desktop, as my current laptop is on the fritz and I need more power for gaming and other needs. I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to computers and whatnot, thus the question:

I'm looking to get this Computer, and would like to get a monitor that is suitable for what this computer can dish out.

Will this monitor do the trick, or should I look into somehting else?

Suggestions and oppinions encouraged!


PS: I know i'm not building my own... but that's simply due to time constraints!

Cool, thanks a bunch guys. I'll look into the Iilama products and see if there is anything I fancy, although it is much more convienient for me just to get something locally.

Thanks again
