    Ok, i know this isnt a video board topic, but it is video. I am building my firat new comp, and i want a 17in monitor. I want to spend no more that 350.00. I have been doing my homework and found the following brands and some reviews. Mag Vision, Optiquest, and Cybervision brands.I know there are like 3 different 17in models for each brand, but i am confused about which to get. Thanx guyz

    If you go with a 17" you may decide you need a 19" two days later. Optiquest makes good monitors.It's actually made by Viewsonic. THe quality looks pretty much the same on the 19" and smaller monitors.On 21" there is a difference, but i found thew Veiwsonic and optiquest to look the same at 19" or less.

    I Would recommend LG Electronics Studioworks 7D monitor Is Cheap And Only Cost US$300,
    3 year Parts and Labor warranty.Sound and Video Is Just Great Built-in Speaker and
    microphone. This is Cheap And Good.
    But Esquire and Chanse are right the bigger the better ViewSonic G790 is the best with
    0.26 mm dot pitch, 1600 x 1280 max resolution.<< This Is Monitor Have The Best
    performance Terrific text, great color.

    If he says he wants to spend "no more" than a certain amount of money he is trying to tell you the maximum amount he is willing to spend. For building your own computer, a 17" monitor will be very good. True, 19 inches is much better, but if you're on a budget, 17" is probably the one to go for. PC Magazine did a review on 17" and 19" monitors:

    Personally I would love to have a beautiful 19" monitor but I don't think my budget will stretch that far when I buy a new computer in a month or two.
