And unless you have a ****ty 22", it will be tremendously hard to tell a difference between that and a 20.1".

Im with CWells on this, but I believe im going with a 20.1'' sceptre, ive decided not to get a 8800 and keep my 7900GS until summer.
20.1'' should be plenty big.

i have a 20.1 inch and it very nice. but some games don't support it but most of the new ones that are coming out do.so i would recommend it. i haven't had a problem with mine and itl pay off cause all the new games usually support it.

Get the Dell, I love mine.

THEoBZ, I have had this monitor for 6 months and it rules the land. No dead pixels, and it looks better than any monitor I've seen. No ghosting or screendoor effect, 5ms response time, and 800:1 contrast. For $300 shipped, you can't beat that. Read the reviews, it has 95% positive reviews from the egg out of over 100. Chimei is a good brand, apparently they have been around for a while but they market under other brandnames.

You won't be disappointed, I can assure you. I've had mine for 6 months and everytime I look at my PC or first sit down to use it I still think "damn this monitor is nice". Trust me, its awesome. Hope this helps.
(they also have a black one on newegg too, same exact thing cept black)
