I am making hella bank at my job at the moment. I need a new monitor seeing as I've been using the same one for like 7 years and its not even 1080. Anyone know of any good ones in the $150 - $250 range. Anywhere around 19-23" is perfect.

Pretty good chance that while the boards will be decently prices, the cpus won't be. Probably $500 minimum for the base model. I really don't think they would cannibalize 1155 sales with cheap 6-core 2011 chips.

Yeah, I heard that the cheapest 2011 chip will be a "locked" 4c/8t cpu for like
$294 and the next one which is an "unlocked" 6c/12t cpu for about $518.

Wait for a Dell Ultrasharp in size range to go on sale. Trust me, they're fantastic.

This is a good one:

You could also try and find a used u2311. Those are extremely popular.

These ultrasharps use IPS panels, which provide much more vibrant colors and an overall better picture than TN panels. TN is what most "budget" monitors use.

EDIT: Take a look at this.

EDIT X2: Screw that, get this. I've done your shopping for you. You're welcome. You won't do better in this price range than this monitor.

Case window mod done. Get ready for pics guys, and get a towel ready. Gotta upload like 15mb of pictures. I'm 100% done except for cleaning everything off, properly putting the window in (it's just taped in right now so it doesn't get scratched), and rubber lining along the cut (you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it).
