My old monitor is giving up the ghost. I need a new one. I use the PC largely for word processing (I write sci-fi novels) and gaming (when I need a break from sci-fi novels).
I have a decent graphics card, a GTX750 Ti. I'd like something that does it justice. I'd heard that monitors were tuned to games or workstation use, but I can't get my head round that. If it can display the fine details of Lara Croft's hair as she vaults effortlessly through the air, surely it can display a Word document or a spreadsheet?
Anyway, what I'm after is a monitor around 21" to 24" that has HDMI, DVI-I or DVI-D connectivity, resolution at least as good as my current 1280 x 1024, if not better and I don't care if it even has speakers, let alone how good they are because I don't use them. Finally, my Iiyama monitor has really rubbish buttons and I get the sense that I am not alone here. I'd like the thing to be robust in this department (that's why I need a new monitor. The buttons have packed in and the OSD keeps popping up).
What would you all recommend for a budget of £150 or so?
