My System Specs

Default Need dual 1080p monitors, low budget.

Hello everyone, I'm looking for a new pair of monitors for my gaming/workstation rig.
I have a kind of tight budget for what I need though.

Requirements:
- 1080p
- 5ms response time
- LED Backlit
- At least 21.5-inch viewable

Budget $300 for two, I can probably do $350, but I want to keep it as low as possible.

Thank you so much in advanced for the help, I've been reading monitor reviews for 3 hours now, I just cant find a decent monitor to trust.

Best Monitor I have ever purchased

I have one at home and two at work. A buddy of mine picked up two for home with no problems.

Amazon.com: ViewSonic VX2250WM-LED 22-Inch (21.5-Inch Vis) Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED Monitor with Integrated Stereo Speakers: Computers & Accessories


PS. Do not use the integrated speakers they are crap.

As a starting point I suggest the Asus VE228H or if your willing to go the non LED route the Asus VH236H.

Newegg.com - Asus VE228H 21.5" Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers ASCR 10,000,000:1 Out of stock atm
Newegg.com - ASUS VH236H Black 23" 2ms Full HD Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ Speakers 300 cd/m2 20000 :1 (ASCR)

As for the BenQ - It seems to be discontinued.
But the price on the ASUS is unbeatable, And it has HDMI support (Which I probably won't use for a bit, Just the inc. DVI cables) And on Amazon it's $135, My local shop can get them, for $130!

If anyone is interested the link is: Amazon.com: Asus VE228H 21.5-Inch Full-HD LED Monitor with Integrated Speakers: Computers & Accessories

Thanks everyone for the help and recommendations. The reason I needed the new monitors is where I'm buying from (Locally) The Dell monitors I was going to get shot up to $200.

Anyway, thanks guys!
