I'm shopping for a new monitor since my current one is really old and still has only VGA support... I want to upgrade to a monitor that costs around 300$ or less.

I want the monitor to be and have:
1. 23" or 24"
2. 1080p (since I have gtx 970 and i5 4690k I need to have a lower resolution monitor in order to play newest games at decent FPS and decent graphical settings)
3. Possibly 75hz
4. IPS display
5. Good response time at around 5 ms
6. Flicker free and low/not noticeable input lag

If you guys have any good monitors in mind that fit these specs or are maybe even better and fit the price budget please let me know.

So far I have found two monitors that peeked my interest and these two are Dell U2414H and LG 23MP68VQ. Which one would you guys choose if you were in my shoes? I will be using my new monitor mainly for watching movies/videos and playing singleplayer and sometimes multiplayer competitive games.

Thank you so so much for helping me out on this difficult task! All the help is appreciated

I have three Asus VC279H on my desk at home.  I use one for watching movies, one for gaming and the last one to monitor e-mail and browse the web.  There is also a 23" version available.  I bought my father an Asus VZ279H, again available in a 23" version.  The reason I purchased the model I did was for the variety of inputs and VESA mounts.  At the time I purchase my father's the price difference was sufficient that it made more sense to go with the model I selected for him as he didn't need VESA mounts or DVI.

Kilroy brought up the most important part that buyers forget about until they try to hook it up.   What interface do you have on you PC and what models have the matching inputs.  Options within HDMI allow audio to go to whatever device is connected, if your selection has built in speakers, otherwise alternate methods will be needed for audio support.  DVI has many flavors and connectors to reflect those levels so that needs investigation too.

May be a better option though I dont know how rotatable the stand is.


Its a good value monitor and is under your price point
