Judging on people's opinions, i should go for a 24" monitor then. I'm gonna take a look at the Samsung tomorrow in some local electronica store and see if i like it.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far

I have been looking into some affordable GPU's and got my eyes on a 6950 which would perfectly fit my ~250$ budget, i cant sell my current 5850 as i will put it in my gf's rig.

How big of a step is it to go from a 950/1250 AMD-5850 to a 6950? on a 1680x1050 resolution now and a 1940x1080 later?
na dotn bother, if you already have at least 30fps why get 150? It wont make things smoother, just get a second like me.

Bought a 24" Samsung BX2450 LED today, what a difference compared to my old 21.5" LCD. Much brighter, more colorfull and sharper. After some calibrating the colors pop off the screen.

Been trying some games, i didnt notice any ghosting or whatsoever. Great monitor so far!

Thanks for all the suggestions, very much appreciated! next will be my gpu at the end of the summer or so
