This will be my first flat screen monitor. Here is my situation:
Will be used with a not very often used Windows 8 (yuck) desktop.
Besides occasional internet usage the monitor would be used for older games (Call of Duty 1 and 2, Medal of Honor, Far Cry 1 and 2, nothing much newer).
The space available for the monitor is not large, it will sit on an old desk which backs to a.wall.
Interested in having a monitor which might be used as a tv (using HD satellite provider) as well. (I forget what that feature is called)
Don't want to spend over $200, hopefully less than $150.
I now use a 15" CRT. A larger screen will be nice, but I don't need anything huge. But I don't want to later regret buying one too small. I don't expect to buy another monitor in the forseeable future.
I just don't want to miss out on some new or beneficial feature that I might be able to get if I spend a few dollars more.
