Default New Monitor

I just got an 8800gtx but i don't think i'm getting my moneys worth on it running it at 1280 x 1024. Can anyone recommend a good monitor I could get?

I would probably want it to be about 24''.

acer, samsung, dell, hannsg, benQ...those are all good monitors. i have an acer x243w 24" that i got a great deal on at office depot (like less than 250 bucks) and it is fantastic.

I sell TVs and electronics for a living right now, and I would recommend a Samsung. Besides Panasonic's plasmas, they lead the TV industry.

The color is phenomenal and i wouldnt rly be too bothered about the resolution it looks sweet on cod4 and 22inch is big enough for me others may disagree but i am very happy with a 22inch for 200pound especially one of this quality. ( i bought it from currys not online )
