yehid love to wait to purchase a new monitor, but im purchasing a new SLI system and my old monitor is 4 years old, so it doesnt have the DVI connector, which ive been told will take complete advantage of my new system (hopefully ill be ordering tht system in the next few days)

Ive been looking around and the viewsonic VP912b 19", and Viewsonic's VP201b 20" look pretty good. The Hyundai I saw over at OC UK which has better stats (19") cant seem to find it in the U.S. Anyway, If i dont see something better I'll prolly get one of the Viewsonics'. The Dell 2001P is nice as well, but its about a year old and I figure it might not be best choice now. Anyway, Talk to you guys later.

I did alot of research before I bought my LCD and Bang for Buck I came out with a BenQ 19" FP931 16ms. I bought it back in October and have been very impressed. I play Doom 3 quite a bit and there is -very- minimal ghosting. I don't notice it at all during game play. Colors are impressive! Newegg has it right now for 385.00. I am very happy with this monitor.

Here are the stats from Newegg (Also note that this model has a faster resonse time than the nex BenQ model above it.)

that looks nice. Thanks for your reply. I've been hear some chatter about some new Samsungs coming out "down the road soon". I've been trying to find out what that means exactly I've seen a 8ms Hyundai out there for sale coming out this month, buts its a UK site that doesnt ship to USA oh well, guess I have a few more weeks before I have to commit to a decision. Thanks again!
