Or you could probably swing a 20" ACD if you're lookin at that NEC...
I decided not to go with the 2407 because my GC will not drive games at the native resolutions and it may be some time b4 I go PCI-E (basically decided to see wher dx10 goes - and believe me, it takes great will and patience to do so - LOL!)

I was very close to ordering the 2007, but it has a native resolution of 1680x1050 and again my GC has a max of 1600x1200 for DVI, at least that is what the specs say:

So right now, after quite a bit of research I think I am leaning towards the Samsung 204B. Seems like it has the right mix of everything at a very attractive price (and currently has a $60 rebate):

Any thoughts before I push the proverbial button?

Maybe 16ms is ok, I really dont know (I'm speaking in a relative context), but my 25ms Samsung does have ghosting when playing FPS games and I can only imagine that 6 is better than 16 (although I cant speak for the credibility of the spec or where it came from).
It don't matter. Ghosting is non-existant with my monitor.

Beautiful colour. Looks more vibrant than my old Dell Trinitron.

That can't possibly be true. It'll do 1680x1050...what kinda card doesn't? lol

This is an AGP card and the software control panel does not show anything above 1600x1200 as an option. When I uncheck "hide resolutions this monitor does not support", I see some analog available resolutions, but none of them are 1680x1050. The spec sheet in my post above shows 1600x1200 as the max resolution in 32-bit mode digital. It may be sad, but true. The weird thing is that 1600x1200 is more pixels than 1680x1050, so it surprises me.

Is it possible that my antiquated AGP ways are limiting me from every direction??

Well - I decided to go with the Samsung 204B. It will fulfil my gaming requirements and also allow me to wait for the next upgrade in CPU (quad-core), GC (DX10) etc. I'd hate to plonk down $2.5K+ right now on a PCI-E system and be outdated within 1-1.5yrs wishing I had a DX10 rig.

I love having to turn my head to see what's on the other side of the display (sorta exagerating - sorta...)
