Hello,

Please suggest a good Monitor for Games and Movies.

Right now I'm using old CRT(17") monitor and occasionally I connect my PC to Sony 24" TV to play games or watch movies.

I want HD , LED monitor, with 22"/24". which I'm intending to keep using for long time(I don't want to replace it again and again)

My Budget is ?10,000 INR [ ~$160 USD].

Most famous online shopping sites in my location are:
http://www.flipkart.com/
http://www.amazon.in/

My GPU is : NVIDIA - GeForce GT 640 - DDR5

first of all there is no such thing as "ISD" its "INR"
secondly if u care about gaming tell us ur GPU,
increasing the resolution will decrease game performance.
U are on 1366x768 moving to 1080p or higher will be a huge performance impact on ur gaming.
But if u dont care about that then just pick

its in budget, good size, nice TFT IPS panel.
If u can extend ur budget a little

this is a pretty good size for movies etc.
or if u care about gaming, and want to play at decent settings without lag then i wud say go 1600x900
