Replacement Monitor For A XPS 8300

The Dell monitor (ST2210-analog) I am using on my XPS 8300 desktop may be starting to fail.  I haven't yet run a diagnostic, but based on the display it has a definite change in appearance for colors rendered.  Dell doesn't list any monitors when I check available accessories under my account.  Is there a decent monitor out there that I can purchase that will work for me?

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon 6700 series.

Thanks!

There are a multitude of monitors that will work.

I'm fairly sure that card has two DVI connectors, so any modern monitor with a DVI-D interface should work fine.

For a good sized, reasonably priced monitor, I've been going with Asus 23.6 monitors lately, but Dell has some also in this size similarly priced.

About $120 to $140 US on Amazon. Or order from Dell or your local store.

Thank you for your quick reply to my question!  Good to know I don't have to buy a new desktop, not just yet anyway.

The 8300 is still a solid desktop and a new monitor is certainly worth it.

And, ( unless you already have one)  you might look into adding an SSD. It will make a world of difference in the performance of the system.
