Hey guys, well its been a while since ive posted on the overclock.net forums!

and well, the WoW addiction kicked back in haha. But now, im on a journey...a journey to find myself a 24 inch monitor. Now 22inchs are much cheaper, but idk why i need that extra 2 inches but anyways, i need a monitor thats ~500$cdn or less, and i realllllllly need an hdmi port in it, because i want to be able to use my ps3 with HD finally lol. Its stuck usin component 480i lol. So please people, if anyone could help me find this, you will be honoured!

*ps if you you dont get that its ok lol.

I know people will tell you Newegg is the place to go, but that's kind of dangerous. Newegg requires 8 dead pixels before they'll RMA the monitor, so if you've got 7 dead pixels on your glorious 24" monitor, you're out of luck. (personal experience)

I recommend Best Buy, they will exchange the monitor with even 1 dead pixel and the prices aren't much different. Considering you're paying for something this awesome to use with your computer and console gaming, it just makes sense.

I compared all their monitors at the $500 24" level....

This Samsung is pretty good for $500

For $50 more you get a 3ms instead of 5ms response time, component/composite/s-video inputs, and DVI-D with HDCP (aka HD resolutions from your computer, should you ever have a blueray drive in it or download HD movies)

I'd go with the second. In fact.... Now I want to go find it in a 22" for myself... Rock on dude.
