So dell has a nice sale on a s2340l monitor. Its 1080p only but considering its 23" it shouldn't hurt. Its IPS as well. One downside is its glossy screen. Price is $140 + tax.

what do you guys think? Im tired of editing on my laptop screen, i need something bigger but not too expensive as im not a gamer at all..

I have a couple screens similar to those and they are pretty nice, vivid, screens. The gamut isn't fantastic, but you aren't going to get much better at that price range. You'd have to spend around $300 to get anything significantly better. If you want something easier to calibrate, don't mind the loss of color of a $300 screen, then these are OK. I use mine for video editing - they're 1080 (16:9) which lends to video editing. I edit photos on an Ultrashart (U) series screen. If you're going to be editing photos professionally or are a stickler for accuracy I'd look into an Ultrasharp. If you send most of your work out to a professional printing shop, many will do color correction for you, if you get it in the ballpark beforehand.
