Nothing at all!!!
Then why did you buy a 20 inch instead of a 17? Every single inch makes a difference with displays of this size. Bigger displays offer a more immersive experience when gaming so go with the biggest one you can get.

I just hear a lot of good things about the 226BW, is the 216BW good too?
dual 7900gtx cards? If I were you I would go for bigger, you want to give those beasts the room that they want to play . 24" are soon to flood the market and 20's will be pretty much old news. Thats my opinion.

If the 20" is also 1680x1050 I would get it. I did that with my BenQ. I got a BenQ 20" Display and it runs at 1680x1050 and... OH MY GOD.

I went from a 4:3 19" Letterbox Display with a resolution of 1280x1024. And the difference is... WOW! Now, my monitor is a 16:9 Widescreen beauty. The pixel picture, also, is one of the best ever.

22" stretches pixels too much, get 20" for quality, and 24" for quality AND size.

Umm I had a 17" and a 20" is as big a monitor as I could fit in my desk area. Plus I already have a 42" Plasma for other things.
So why did you feel the need for a 22"????
