I watch movies and play games and i haven't bought a monitor in over three years. I really want to get away from 6 bit panels as I'm sick and tired of seeing the dithering effects when a monitor tries to render the color but cant. Is it possible to get one that's good for gaming, and isn't 440 bucks?

The one that I'm looking at now is the ASUS ProArt Series PA246Q which is $439.00 at newegg

But 440 for a monitor seems a bit steep. I don't mind paying the money if it does what I need it too but for that price I can almost buy 3 23.6 inch TN LED LCD's. I also saw the ASUS ML249H but I heard the 8ms response time is too slow for gaming but it does have an 8 bit panel. I don't know but I figure there's got to be a good monitor for what I need that's not 440 bucks.

The best thing to do that I found out is go to Best Buy and look at the monitors in person before buying. They usually have a movie running and you can see the different color saturations in the monitors along with motion blurr during high action events. I bought a 23 inch Samsung Px2370/Px2370 Plus LRD type monitor and it seems to run fine for me and my games.

I bought a 27" Samsung 1080p for $250. Refurb, love it....

I have the same model, and it is by far the best monitor I've ever owned.

E-bay usually has at least one seller with some available. Extremely popular line results in a fairly predictable refurb line. I've never had an issue with mine.
