    Exclamation Find me the best 17" tft monitor for around £160 please

    Hi, I really need to a new monitor because I'm sitting way too close to my crt because i have no desk space and I'm getting headaches etc...Now, being a A2 studen,t i dont have a big income and need to save for driving lessons so I can't really justify spending £200 on a monitor and get a 19". So what I'm asking is can you find me the best 17" TFT for upto £160, I do game quite a bit and I like the sharp colours of my CTX. Also, whats all this about DVi or VGA inputs, I have heard that DVI superior, i think my 6600gt xfx will have both. So add that into the equation. Thanks, john.

    AriaPC have a super specials daily http://www.aria.co.uk/specials.asp and there are quite often own brand TFT's in there. The digimate ones are the cheapest.
    Have used a 17" one for a short time before passing on to the guy I ordered it for. It was pretty nice and seemed crisp to me.
    Not to up on the DVI input side of things, what I do know is that monitors with it tend to be more expensive and often don't come supplied with the cable.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    The 17" Hyundai ImageQuest B71A is a goody. A friend of mine just bought the 19" version and it's very impressive.

    EDIT: There is a cheaper version (17" Hyundai ImageQuest B70A) which is the same spec, but I believe it to be less attractive. It's up to you though, we all have our own taste.

    Also, whats this about xbox360 being compatible with HDTV with some monitors, can you clear that up with me please? thanks

    EDIT: Wow, I have just found £40 which I haden't spent which I had withdrawn from my account so maybe, I can stretch to that £200 pound. Would this allow me to buy good 19" tft, any thoughts or suggestions, John.

    EDIT 2: What about this ag neovo 19"? any experiences?
