Hello folks, I really hope you can help me with your (as ever) good advice.
I have a budget of £150 to buy a new computer monitor, but have no idea where to start or what is even a good make (the monitor I have which is on its way out is a Samtron? and came with my Time Computer so you know how old it is).
I don't play games on it and the only thing I really use it for (other than surfing the internet) is editing photos.
Select a monitor that is compatible with your PC's output or if you have a GPU card then the card's output.
Have a look here , possibly you will have a HDMI or most probably a DVI-D port.
Find one compatible with the ports and most importantly, compatible with your pocket? Buy from some reputable retailers so if you do get a problem you can return and get a replacement. Worth the extra pennies.
Should have added that as well as a VGA port your card should have a DVI-D port. Note that if you buy a monitor using the DVI-D port (better quality) check if it comes with a DVI-D cable. That can come as extra expense.
