Need some informations on LCDs!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, so since I need to buy a whole new computer, I was looking at what screen to get. Here are my requirements, pretty much:

- Since it's something you look at the whole time you're on the computer, it has to be excellent quality.
- 24 inches, at least 3000:1, and possibly in the 2-5ms range(since 2 and 5 won't make that huge of a difference as long as I'm not getting any ghosts).

I had originally picked this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009125

Seemed like a good bang for the bucks, only, one thing struck me.

Since in my current room setup I can't afford a nice flat widescreen TV to play my games in HD on my PS3, I was thinking to plug my PS3 on the composites(of the CRT TV for games that doesn't require HD like RockBand for instance), and have an HDVI cable extension go up to my monitor to play some games on my computer screen. I've seen some Dell screens at my workplace that had multiple inputs, and a swap display button/split screen feature on the front panel. I really liked that feature but I can't seem to name it to find a screen that would have this.

Any thoughts on the best screen possible for the money while possibly fulfilling what I'd like? Any recommendations on a better setup than what I'm thinking of is good too.

Thanks!

This should meet your needs, aside from the split-screen, and the adjustable stand is hella sexay.
