I think you'll be hard pressed to find anything supporting Full HD for that price.

Really depends what you mean by HD, if you want 1920 x 1080 at that price you'll have to try your luck 2nd hand.

These should give you an Idea of the cheap end of the monitor market;

You can get a 21' USB monitor for $199 (http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=19677). No power or separate cord required. It comes from USB. I dont think it comes with any other connections tho

You may have to sign up / register first

iirc the usb AOC screens can't be used as primary monitors.

Yeah and they won't game either as they are not using the graphics card to drive them so no 3D acceleration. Also the regular 22" I linked is cheaper anyway.
