    Just look for a recent Asus or Acer monitor in your price range. Both really good brands.

    BenQ is also a great company. LG is too, but they are fairly expensive.

    Asus VN247H - one of the best monitors I had. 1ms Response time, built in speakers, 1080p HDMI etc. It's an all rounder. Best of luck. (£150)

    In other words, you're looking for a cheap 1080p monitor. 'gaming' doesn't really apply unless you've got an impressive budget tbh.

    Never found any fault with ASUS - this is an excellent cheap 23" 1080p monitor :cute:

    I have a 21 inch Acer one @60 Hertz for £89 I think. It's rather good, and it's in 1080p. I preferred to have a 24 inch one though, but. What can you do?

    The one I use - 144Hz, 1ms etc.

    Just outside the price range but you could probably get it for cheaper - still a good deal tho.

    Only bad thing I'd say from experience are no inbuilt speakers and the stand in non-adjustable.
    Other than that, it's a good, cheap 144Hz monitor

    You're not likely to benefit from 144Hz.

    OP, unless you are using a PC and have a GPU that can run games well above 144fps, don't even bother getting a 144hz monitor, it will do nothing for you except hurt your wallet also if you are going to get that monitor DO NOT get that one he linked, the colour reproduction is horrible, spend a little bit more on a ASUS VG248QE or a BenQ XL24(i forgot what it's called) but it's around £200.

    I agree it is pretty unnecessary but if you have the power to run games on it, why wouldn't you?

    Really you're just looking for anything that's Full HD (not 'HD ready') and doesn't get dead pixels.

    Maybe avoid Samsung, since their monitors aren't great and their customer service is even worse.

    I would go on a selling site or one of the local Facebook groups and get one second-hand, making sure I know the model number so I can check it's any good, the alternative is spending a load in Argos when you could get a 42" Plasma for half, for example.
