(sorry if this isn't the right forum for this request, I wasn't sure where it would fit)

I currently have one of these:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=447382

It has served me well over the years but I feel it's time for something a little bigger and better. Due to my setup, its replacement can't be larger than 23" and I want built-in speakers with it. My current monitor has a nifty setup as well where you can plug in a 3.5mm headphone into it (as well as on the front of the PC) and you can use headphones from the monitor as well.

I have tried searching but can't find hardly anything that has speakers and a headphone jack/audio out. If I could I'd like to replace it with a Samsung monitor, and I'd prefer LED too.

Anyone able to make any suggestions for a possible replacement model? And no $1000 models please, that's a little out of my budget :)

pb tech have a bunch of other monitors on special this weekend (for 1/2 hour more perhaps).

if you *really* want a monitor with speakers and audio out, try this one - it also has a couple of USB ports
