As many of you know, Christmas is coming up and i was looking to buy a monitor for myself preferably size above 21 inch but dont really have an idea on how to buy it, what to look for and which one would be best value for money. I have 3 of my choice but of course you could suggest some other ones (i am from UK and currency is £ (pounds)) My budget is up to £150. These are the three: Samsung SM2243SN 22in Widescreen TFT Monitor 1920x1080 Acer X223HQb 22in Widescreen TFT Monitor 1920x1080 LG W2261V 22in Widescreen TFT Monitor 1920x1080 Could you please look into stuff like contrast ratio, because I heard of it but dont really know what it does and how it contributes towards the performance and quality of the monitor. I dont really know much about monitors but I am more into the inner stuff like a GPU, CPU, ram. If you need any additional info about my system, just ask. I mainly use my PC for gaming (Call of Duty MW2 at the moment) but i do work also (Excel, Word, Powerpoint) Also could you tell me if DVI connection would be better than VGA because my graphics card is the EAH4850 (Radeon) and it has a DVI way out but i use an adapter and use VGA because my monitor right now doesnt have DVI. Maybe there are different version or cables of DVI or VGA that one is better than the other. Thank You in advance!
