Hi!

A friend of mine asked me for help in choosing a monitor for himself.. his budged is 340€, he is gaming and wants to watch bluray movies

I thought about a 24" BENQ G2410HD but then i realized that is has no HDMI port only D-Sub and DVI which will cripple the monitor image a bit right?

Is there monitor you would recommend on the side to which i posted the link?

Edit: this site is also an option http://www.alternate.de/html/highlights.html?hgid=870&tgid=1017&tn=HARDWARE&l1=Monitore&

DVI will give you the same image quality, I think. I believe HDMI is limited to 1080p and DVI can hit up to 1920x1200. Not sure.
