So I'm finally moving into a new room that is actually bigger than a fucking broom closet for once, so I finally have a desk for my keyboard and mouse (instead of resting it on my bed) and space for a monitor (instead of using my TV), got a budget of about £150 and I have no idea what to get since I've never needed a monitor before.
Not sure if this is the right section to ask this in, but I came here since I figured you guys would have a good idea what to look for.

This one's pretty good. not the best for gaming but good enough, decently sized, and Samsung have decently colourful and nice looking monitors.

I had a different version of this monitor for a while before I got my BenQ

Save and get a good IPS or 144hz TN.

I have the S24D590, same panel but a nicer design (kinda flimsy though). Decent monitor for it's price here in Belgium at least. Nothing special but it does what it needs to do.
I like pizza.

I bought a 144 Hz monitor, and I do not regret it. Just make sure you set windows to output 144 Hz to it. IDK why, but my monitor did not make that setting get defaulted to.

This is what I'm saying for. I refuse to compromise between refresh rate and IPS. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824236466

I'd recommend a BenQ G2450HM.
