    Hi,

    I finally fancy getting a new monitor, and i've cut it down to two. At the moment i have a cheap 19" Hyundai one i got to make do. Here are the monitors:

    Asus VH226H - £141.00 - 22" - 1920x1080 - 12000:1
    Acer P223W - £130.33 - 22" - 1680x1050 - 2500:1

    I want to buy from the UK, and my budget is £140 (Don't joke saying that the Asus is £1 over...). I watch alot of films, and do alot of gaming. Im getting an 8800GTX soon, so i can handle the extra pixels. So, which one?

    Thanks in advance.

    My vote is for the Asus. Looks better imo. Both have 3 yr warranty right?

    My friend has the VH2226H and it didn't have 1 dead pixel. It does 1920x1080 on 22" which means it has superb image quality.
