Yeah, but that monitor only has a 12ms response time, so would it be able to keep up with my x1900xt without gohsting?

or buy a CRT monitor.

ENVISION 17-inch flat screen - $110

it is not "cheap". My friend and my dad use the same monitor, and its really crisp color, good resolution, and space-saving.

Go to the LCD section of NewEgg and have it sort the items by price. Then start picking through them. I assume you've done some research one what the aspects of monitors are (such as dot-pitch, contrast, view angle, etc), so you should be able to see how high you can go till you reach your price.

Worlds best professional LCD monitors:

Of course, you might be a little under-budget...

LCD means liquid crystal display....it is ideal for business use and it consumes very very low voltages.......however if u need for gaming....i recommend you to buy a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) the ones present in 4:3 PAN tv sets....its quality is best...tho is consumes much power
