Top five computer monitors for under $200 photo
Top five computer monitors for under $200
by Alex Bout

As good of a gaming computer as you might have, whether you spent $400 or $2000, its visual output will more or less look like crap unless you have a good monitor to show off what it can do. Today, I'm going to rank the top five monitors for your money, based on a budget of around $200. 

To make these rankings, I not only took price into factor but also contrast, brightness, screen size (yes, size does matter), resolution, screen type, and extra toys as well. I limited my ranking to a budget of $200 or less, so some of the more popular brands such as Samsung were overlooked. (While they have good monitors at a higher price, they do not have any monitors that can match up to the ones I found in this price range.) In addition to this, all 1920x1200 monitors were disregarded, as their general price range is above the allotted budget.

How to build a $480 gaming PC to take on Battlefield 3 photo
How to build a $480 gaming PC to take on Battlefield 3
by Alex Bout

Battlefield 3 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games of the year. With tons of buildings to blow up, explosions that put the Fourth of July to shame, intense competition, and graphics that make your eyes bleed, how can you afford to have a computer that can't keep up with your skills?

So you might need a new gaming rig, but you might not have the cash to buy from a retailer. Why not take a shot at building your own?

If you've never done it before, it can be a very rewarding experience. You'll know the parts in your computer like the back of your hand, be able to talk computer lingo with all the nerds, and better yet, you'll be able to be your own tech support. The best part of it all, though: you'll save about $400 if you were going to buy from Dell, and on average about $100-200 if you were to buy from HP or Best Buy.

If you have that kind of money to just throw around, then that might be an option for you. For the rest of us commoners, though, I highly suggest giving it a shot.
