I'm going to get rid of my huge CRT and finally make the jump to LCD. I need suggestions as to what you guys use/recommend. I have done some research already, and from reading reviews I am looking into this LCD right now: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16824116375" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116375</a> it has 2ms response time and everybody that bought it seems to be happy w/ it ...<br />
<br />
Please recommend any other/better LCDs 17"-19". Budget is 300$ or less. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions.. I'd rather not get a Dell but I will look into that samsung. I noticed that both monitors have a higher max resolution which is a plus... <br />
<br />
Can anyone else recommend any other LCDs suitable for gaming?

<br />
As for the Dell Monitor, I am completely with you on that. Look at the Samsungs, they are quite nice, and that is coming from a Samsung owner.

</div>The 205BW is fantastic (I'm using one now). I have said it before, and will say it again: OnRebate.com is far from reliable. I have recieved less than half of my applied-for rebates.<br />
<br />
Side-Note: I got my 205BW at OfficeMax for $20 cheaper than NewEgg, but that was 2 or 3 months ago. The prices have leveled out now.<br />
<br />
Check the reviews on the Sceptre. The price is quite nice, as are the specs.

Either of these will be very good. I personally suggest the dell. There's nothing wrong with dells.<br><br>
I actually have heard that the 205BW and E207WFP use the same panel.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Yep, the only monitor I would say is better than a samsung is ViewSonic, or MAYBE NEC. But otherwise, Dell & Samsung are the way to go.

Yo! But what about if i want to play games in not native resolution? For example SAMSUNG 204BW native res is - 1680 x 1050 but will i'll be able to play BF2 in that res or i should switch it to 1024-whatever... ? And how is picture quality on lower resolutions?

I'm gonna place another vote for Samsung. AMAZING monitor, especially considering the price.

I recomend NOT getting a viewsonic due to crappy Customer Service and I spent 300+ on my monitor and 3 months later it crapped out and they sent me a refurbished one. I don't like them now. I plan on switching to a BenQ possibly or something with GOOD recomendations! Just some thought<br />
