Default 20" widescreen LCD

I'm needing help choosing a monitor for gaming. I was looking at thest 2 tell me what you think please.

1. Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X20WG-1080P Black 20.1" 5ms(GTG) 1080P HDCP supported Windows Vista Certified DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

2. Newegg.com - ViewSonic X Series VX2035WM Black-Silver 20.1" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

What do you think about those 2? Or do you have a better recommendation? Something in that price range is what I'm looking at spending. Thanks for the suggestions.

I'd go for the Sceptre. It has slightly better specs, like the 1000:1 contrast, compared to ViewSonic's 800:1. And it is cheaper.

Or you could go for this:
Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X22WG-1080p Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Which is an amazing deal, for it's specs.
