Default monitor advice

hey all,

im thinkin of buying a new monitor as my 17inch crt is getting a bit old now.

ive seen a few monitors on www.misco.co.uk, but they arent recigonisable names.

my budget is around £150 (sterling).

i use the monitor for all sorts, from DVDs to gaming. what responce time should i be aiming for, for gaming uses?

Which is answering your questions, getting the fastest response time you can afford lol.

Now your asking for more advise

Uh get the fastest response times yuio can afford. Looking at around 8ms or lower would be good.

Acer, Viewsonic, Samsung, Hyundai. All good monitor companies, I'm probably missing a few too :classic:
