A better question would have been "what resolution do you like gaming at."

I currently have a 24'' 1080p, but I'm hoping to grab 3x U2311H in the near future.

999999999999999999x99999999999999. Bad question

Anyways, I find my 30" monitor to be nice to game with. My 47" TV is just too large to play PC games and still be able to use the desktop comfortably.

I used to play on a 19" CRT until recently and gaming wise I was doing fine but it started to feel a little too small recently so I got a 23.6" widescreen LCD and I love it.

32" Sharp Aquos @ 1920x1080. Big enough to fill my FOV, small enough to not look ridiculous on my desk, and perfect resolution to game on.

For competitive gaming, I prefer a 17" high hz (100/75+) CRT/LCD @ 1024x768 or 800x600.

For everything else, a 21.5"-24" LCD @ 1080P is fine.

i really like 1440x900 on my 19"

it isn't too big, but the advantage is the games don't take a lot to run, and because of that i can crank up the settings., more especially AA and AF.

means i don't have to spend loads on a new graphics card regularly

22" is the sweet spot for me. 1680x1050, not too wide. Not too big for me to buy a mid-top tier graphics card but enough for me to enjoy the detail as well.
