Need a 22" LCD suggestion for my new build

Tue Aug 21, 2007 9:06 pm

Here is my system:
Antec 900 case
Intel Dual core E6750 CPU
Abit IP 35 Pro
2 Gig Corsair DDR2
XFX GTS 8800 320 meg vide card
Seagate 320 Gig 16 meg cache 7200 RPM HD

I will start building the system tomorrow evening (Wednesday ).

What monitor do you recommend? I am anxious to play the new Medal of Honor Airborne, the new Call of Duty and looking forward to Crysis.
Thanks in advance

I personally love the samsungs, they are just great, many people also love the dells, and if you play with the timing you can usually get a nice coupon for them.
Damn the torpedoes , full speed ahead.

I just bought 2 Samsung 225BWs

They are perfect for me, no intense gaming or graphic design

$40 MIR right now too because they are about to be discontinued ... rge%29.JPG

Just a suggestion, but would you consider getting a 24 inch monitor?

I went from a NEC 19 inch CRT to a Dell 2407WFP-HC about 2 weeks ago. Let's just say it is like I had my left eye closed for the last three years. This thing is so bright it will burn your eyes out :p ( I actually have brightness set to 0 right now) Yes, it does cost a lot more than a 22, but it is so worth it. I picked up mine for $585 on ebay including shipping.

You will love the step up in resolution from a 22" as well. Imagine playing COD or Crysis in 1920x1200. Also if you have an Xbox 360 or a PS3 there are component cables on the back.

...and if you still want a 22 inch screen, how about the

Dell E228WFP

That will only cost you $299.
