Remember, with the Acer P244Wbii, it has a glossy screen making it difficult to see in direct sunlight or in bright rooms. Also the P244Wbii does not have a DVI connection on it, meaning in order to get a decent HD signal, you would need an HDMI cable. Almost all graphics cards support VGA and DVI connections. Some allow for HDMI through the card directly or through a dongle. There are a few things to look for in a monitor, a contrast ratio of 1000:1 or higher, and a decent refresh rate of 4ms or lower. Contrast ratios can be a little unreliable, manufacturers can change testing conditions to make the monitor seem as though it has a high one. Also, there is dynamic contrast ratio, this changes LCD monitor based on what is being displayed. This can be distracting in my opinion. I would probably go for the Asus monitor I chose, it has more features even though it is more expensive.
