Alright so I'm a sucker for tech, and even though I've never used an IPS monitor I'm leaning so far in that direction its slightly ridiculous. But if I want to stick with the size and resolution I wanted, I'm gonna need to scrounge some more cash.

How much do you think I could get for my Syncmaster 226BW? That'll hopefully help. After that, I'll probably start shopping around again after I find out what I'm getting in the way of a tax return. So if you guys can answer me the above, I'll try to do some more homework on my own before coming back with questions. Thanks for the pointers so far though!

EDIT: asking for a friend (and possibly for me, depending) what can you tell me about the Dell ST2410?

EDIT 2: or the Dell ST2420L

I have 2 monitors similar to that design & I find the touch buttons absolutely crap. I just bought these monitors about 3 months ago & the buttons hardly work anymore. Now I gotta waste time & send them to Asus RMA if I want to.

Maybe I got a bad batch but it makes me not want to buy them again

Hmm I'll definitely keep that in mind.

What about the two I linked above?

I was giving suggestions to a friend of mine just days ago. 1920x1200s are a bit harder to find now. If you don't mind buying used, Samsung T240HD is an awesome choice. You can grab one for $200 used on Amazon which should be in mint shape. It's not a huge deal to go 1920x1200 but it's nice to have. You'd be totally fine with a 580 at 1080p. Here's another options I'd go for:

Well IPS is a big deal IMO and he might enjoy a IPS 1920x1080 more than a TN 1200.

If he can, the dell monitors are pretty much the best he can get.

People, suggesting random monitors without any review of them is useless and confuses the guy.

I suggest IPS monitors because they have an amazing image quality. I find that a lot more important than 1080/1200. So the dell U2211h (for example) will wreck the ASUS or samsung monitors in image quality. Its just so much nicer.

Just my opinion, but I've always liked 16:10 better than 16:9 monitors, mostly for out of gaming stuff though, just gives you a little more real estate to look at, also I would suggest waiting till you can afford one you really want. I mean you have a kick-ass rig, and it's the monitor that you're going to be staring at when you use it. Not to mention PSU/Case/Monitors can be used through many builds as long as they are of good quality. This isn't true for the $500 GTX 580 you have

I must say that I'm partial to the Dell Ultrasharp series, I've used them for the last 6 years, and have been completely satisfied.

Indeed :S particularly the confusing part

If I'm really surprised by how much I can get for my monitor and what I get on my return, I'd love to bump up to a IPS. I'll definitely wait to purchase till I see if I can go that high. In the meantime I'd be happy to look at non-IPS 24" monitors. I'd spotted the two I linked above cause they seemed to me to be good Dell monitors, analogous to the U2311H but non-IPS of course, one being LED and one not.

I do check every link you guys post, but its hard to keep them all straight I'm doing my best to learn as we go
