I can recommend acer widescreen monitors and BenQ monitors as BenQ specialise in good gaming monitors.

The only good Acer monitors are way out of his budget, and so are BenQ.

Thanks guys. Currently trying to find a decent table for this. Only have a pretty small one atm.

Was hoping to have something like this. But i have no idea how i'd do the middle part where you sit, so it doesn't make just a L shape table.

That's a poor colour choice of desk given the low quantity of light that the room will receive.
