    hi all.

    I am looking for advice upon a monitor but the most important thing on the list is i will be connecting up my macbook for graphic design work on illustrator and photoshop, indesign etc.

    I will also be gaming sometimes with games like BF3, Fallout3, Skyrim etc.

    Also i LOVE LOVE LOVE my films and tv so it stands to reason if its good enough for games design its good quality for film watching as well.... right? lol

    Anyways long story short and my main question...

    What monitor should i buy thats great for all the above?

    I have a budget of £250

    Hi McCann, I believe different monitors fit different purposes, particularly if your gaming requires a high refresh rate and fast response time.

    With more focus on graphic design, you may want to look into an IPS display to begin with. The pixel resolution is personal choice like 1080HD or 4K. You may also exceed your budget.

    You need to decide the prime purpose of your monitor.

    You can get a very good high quality monitor with good hz for your fast paced gaming from LG. Go onto amazon and search for LG TV's. You can get 20-30" tv's/monitors for around the budget you are after. I got a 24" LG Monitor/TV that works wonders, extremely good quality (1080p) and works great when playing my fast paced games.
