Monitor for Under $250

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Can you guys help me?
I am looking for a great monitor around the $250 range, what are you recommendations, and where should I look?
What are the main components of a good monitor, contrast ratio?
Anything good for $200?
I am looking from the 19" LCD to a 22" LCD
THANKS!
