Hi. I've just bought a cheap PC, a £330 Dell with Intel Pentium 4 3.4Ghz 1024MB RAM 200GB Hard drive Graphics card with at least 256MB V RAM
I realise it's not top spec, but I don't play games( except freecell!) or do video editting so it should suffice for the mo. I'm looking for a reasonably priced 19" flat monitor that is Ok for photoshop work, word processing and t'internet.
I'd love to spend less than £200 but know I might have to stretch that, any suggestions greatly appreciated
As the monitor has a DVI connection (click here) apart from the standard VGA, check that the Dell's graphics card has a DVI socket for best results. (If in doubt whether or not you can use the supplied DVI cable with your graphics card, contact Rocate's live help click here). If I had a choice between a VGA+DVI monitor & a VGA-only monitor (the price being more or less the same), I would go in for the latter. G
To be honest, this 19" Digimate L-1918 TFT 12ms 700:1 with DVI click here (taken from the Specials section click here) at just £144 (incl del) would suit you as well. It's probably the cheapest DVI TFT going at the moment. Read the user comments lower down in the link.
