Hi guys. I am planning on buying a new screen tomorrow and have these 2 choices (unless I choose a TN panel)

http://www.dell.com/ed/business/p/dell-u2312h/pd ($180)

http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/VX239H/ ($210)

I'm planning on running it dual-screen with my current 19" LG display.

However, here comes the problem, the LG only has a D-sub input, so I must use the DVI output from my 7870 for the LG screen leaving only the HDMI and mini-DP connections free.

The Dell has 1 DVI input and I have a HDMI-DVI adapter that I could use.

The Asus comes with 2 HDMI inputs so using a converter is not necessary.

I can check the Asus for dead/stuck pixels before buying, but I cannot check the Dell unless I wait around in the shop for an hour or so.

Which would you buy?
