Currently on W7 however W8 will be installed over the coming months.
Main use for PC is DAW (digital audio workstation)/music production work on a home hobiest basis (Cubase 7 etc). I always use a two monitor set up one for the main editing work and the second for controlling mixer/virtual instruments and so on.
Can a touchpad system be used as a second monitor for controlling/viewing the main PC rig. So have 1 monitor on the main PC tower/rig for running and viewing the DW and a touchscreen tablet for controlling some elements of the software running on the main rig and also doubling as touchscreen monitor for the main rig. But this would mean it would be displaying the OS and programs running on the main PC system. This would mean the touchscreen tablet integrating with the main system acting as a hybrid, may not be possible I don’t know?
Currently have a 22’’ Samsung monitor with 2ms response time. This monitor is starting to fail (takes 20 - 40 mins to heat up, stop the screen from flickering and get bright/stable enough to see). Current Graphics card is DVI (ATI14850) but will probably replace again in a years time so HDMI option would be useful.

I am totally out of touch with current technologies and was going to get a bulk standard 24" monitor.
Can you nice and knowledgable chaps please help guide me with some HD monitor receommendations to look at in order of preference:
- A standard plasma/lcd/led TV that can be doubled as a monitor
- Good quality but sub £300GBP/$450USD
- Touchscreen multipoint monitor should I go that way appreciate price will probably be over £300GBP/$450USD
- A cheap (£100GBP/£150USD) standard monitor and get a touch tablet to double up as a second screen/intereface/portable system.
Afetrthought can the mixer in Cubase7 be used on a touchscreen monitor - ie fader control instead of using mouse?
