Gaming LCD ... need opinions

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm going to get rid of my huge CRT and finally make the jump to LCD. I need suggestions as to what you guys use/recommend. I have done some research already, and from reading reviews I am looking into this LCD right now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116375 it has 2ms response time and everybody that bought it seems to be happy w/ it ...

Please recommend any other/better LCDs 17"-19". Budget is 300$ or less. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions.. I'd rather not get a Dell but I will look into that samsung. I noticed that both monitors have a higher max resolution which is a plus...

Can anyone else recommend any other LCDs suitable for gaming?

This 19" WS has some decent specs.

As for the Dell Monitor, I am completely with you on that. Look at the Samsungs, they are quite nice, and that is coming from a Samsung owner.

I have something against Dell. I have used Dell LCDs, and personally, don't see the hype.
