It's 24 inches and 2ms response time, but I don't know how good it'll be for gaming.

WOW me too.. is HDMI to your video card really worth it? Is DVI good enough anyways? I always wanted to go HDMI but it seems pointless for gaming isn't it? This is a GREAT FIND! I'm tempted to buy this right now lol. I already have a good monitor but having a new monitor with 1080p is nice for gaming especially CRYSIS 2 biggrin.gif

That's a great monitor, but doesn't it have a slight tilt back that cant be adjusted. I like my monitors at 90 degree angle.
