    Need advice for monitor and usb digital tuner

    Hi all

    Was hoping some people could give me some advice. I'd like to get a new monitor for gaming mostly, for general stuff at uni, and watching tv/dvd's. My system spec is given to the right. I would like to be able to play games on high settings for a while, so i would sacrifice resolution for performance in the future. I would also like a monitor with DVI input. Given all that what would be best for me? i'm guessing something in the 19" range, so can anyone recommend any monitors in particular, either widescreen or normal, that would fit the above, preferably less than £200.

    Secondly does anyone have any experience with the compro videomate U3 dvb tuner? this -> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/produ...oductID=465629. Is it anygood, how does the software perform day to day? The price is very tempting, especially since it's on today only at the moment

    If anyone has any comments or recommendations on the above then they are welcome.

    Thanks

    Andy

    The Viewsonic VX922 is regarded as pretymuch the best 19" gamer's screen. I think after VAT it's a little over £200 though.

    Well it seems like a decent screen, but it also seems that nobody has any stock, no listed release/re-stock dates other than Komplett which says it will be in stock 4 days ago
