Default AOC IPS 23 Worth it?

Hello Everyone,

I am looking to buy two new monitors. I ran across this monitor(link below) and was wondering if anyone had one or another similar option. It looks like a pretty good deal. I just have never owned anything by AOC and don't know there quality.

AOC IPS 23

Something I have noticed is the monitor has 2xHDMI and VGA no DVI. How much of a difference is there going to be. I have GTX650 TI that has 2xDVI and mini-HDMI. If I plug one into hdmi and the other to VGA from DVI will I see a big difference?

Any and all suggestions/opinions welcome!

Thanks in advanced

For a budget I would say $100-200.

AOC is a cheap brand, and that is a really cheap price for an IPS panel. I question its quality, but there are others here more in the know about IPS panels than I.

Well I am willing to wait a bit. I am not really a graphics person more of productivity person. I currently have one ACER h233h that was free to me. I want to do a dual monitor setup that is pretty seamless. For some light gaming and video stuff I do on embedded hardware.

I wouldn't pair a cheap TN panel and an IPS panel. Color differences will get annoying.
