For one, I want to get some type of Logitech Z set. Though I only have a Sound Blaster Live! card, so not exactly the best of the range, but its done for about 6 years I believe? Around that, and these speakers are about 2 years old. An old Creative Inspire set (2.1), so yeah, I need better sound
And as for the monitor, for a 19inch that isn't bad, especially if it has a good refresh rate, and a good contrast/brightness ratio, and best and definietly not least, DVI support.
It gets points also if the DVI cable comes with it
Unlike ONE I could mention...
I got mine for about £150 - 17 inch/DVI/8ms response time/350:1 brightness/500:1 Contrast/1280x1024 max rate.
