Hope you guys can help me out, I want to get a fancy monitor.

What is the best monitor right now for around £200?

I'd mainly be using it for browsing the internet and watching films. Ideall monitor size around 20"-22".

I've been thinking of a couple of things too in terms of the type of monitor I'm after. I heard its possible to hook up an XBOX 360 to pc monitors, I'd be interested in doing that too if possible, but it not a biggy.

I'm thinking about adding a usb TV thing to my pc, but saw the other day you can get pc monitors with it built in. Do monitors with tv built it have better quality TV than the USB things?

For a 20 inch look at LG 206WU

For a good value (nearly half your budget) look at Iiyama Prolite 1908WSv which is a 19 inch.

Neither have TV built in.

Issue on TV reception is the aerial. A USB dongle that uses its own stub aerial will never be equal in signal quality to a roof top aerial.

I have had mine a month or so and I am very pleased with the buy. Performance exactly as detailed on Dell's site.
