LG's 23 inch IPS panels are the best for colour reproduction in that price range, but being IPS you might, just might have ghosting issues. I never did though. Non-IPS, Asus or Samsung, the ocassional decent low end BenQ or Viewsonnic.

I need specific models. Basically every monitor ever is well reviewed on Newegg. It makes it hard to filter the crap out from the good stuff. I can't even get a jumping off point for research, since every monitor is a 4-star or better.

To be honest, LG wasn't on my radar, but I'll look into some of their monitors.

LG IPS23*** is the general model class for the LG screens. Other than that, use tftcentral for proper reviews.

Oh cool, that'll help.

 

EDIT: Every monitor I've searched on that site isn't listed there. redface.gif

How much is the Dell U2312HM in your neck of the woods?

Just from Youtube videos those LG screens look gorgeous. LG IPS231B-BN might be the one. tongue.gif

Nice, LG manufacture the IPS panels for pretty much every other company anyway. tongue.gif

 

 

The Dell probably uses exact same panel, it's up to you if you want to stretch the budget for an extra 2 years warranty.

Deadly, should I invest in a 7950 for lite coin mining? I'd order in the next week or so... Also, what pool are you with?

I use notroll.in, they seemed a little iffy the past week or so, I don't recommend them at this point in time. Look around for a different pool, just make sure it has stratum support, try coinotron or the new ozco.in stratum server.

 

Make sure you've done all the necessary calculations for your profit, I wouldn't recommend buying a card JUST for mining, but if you were going to upgrade anyway, then it's best to just consider any profit you make a 'discount' in the card.

 

Depending on your electricity costs, you'd make somewhere between ~$4-6 per 24hours as a conservative estimate, and keep in mind you can't really predict very far into the future (1 week at best), so don't base any decisions on that.

It'd be simpler to just dump $5k into coins when they're around $150 then wait for a 40% roi and sell.

Woah woah woah $6 a day with a 7950?

I got a 7970 about a month ago and thought anout bit mining but everyone was saying it isnt worth it. I don't pay for my electricity either $6 a day sounds good to me didn't think it would come close to that with a single gpu! I think I'm about to do more research on bitcoin mining
Well my psu is only 80% + and the 7970 isnt as good as the 7950... oh well wouldnt be making that much even if I undervolted and everything.

7970's are still quite profitable with litecoin mining, you can get about $8 per day at a conservative estimate, I've got two of them running on my computer.

 

Here is a good calculator, I get roughly ~680kH/s for scrypt algorithms, and ~640MH/s for SHA-256 per card.

This one is a great deal, but it is 27". http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014300

There is this one that is THE BEST bang for your buck... The only deal-breaker for me is that it is TN. I can't find it, but it was a 23" or 24" and I'm pretty sure it was Viewsonic. The specs were amazing for $200.
