Post Better monitor?

I have been debating between these 2 monitors, SAMSUNG 245T and DELL ULTRASHARP 2408WFP. I need help choosing either one or being referred to a better monitor in the price range. It will primarily be used for gaming. Thanks

The dell. Samsung is great, but you can't possibly find a bad dell monitor.

My Current PC-
Intel Q6600 G0 |Western Digital 250gb HD
Seagate 500gb HD | Western Digital 500gb HD | VisionTek HD4870 | 4gb Cruical Ballistix Tracer DDR2 800
850w Thermaltake PSU | Cooler Master Centurian 590 | 2x Dell 22" LCD

Talking Call Me Crazy

from what i've seen the Asus MK241H is the best gaming monitor in the size range imo. the 3000:1 contrast ratio crazy awesome crystal clear image. 2m
Talkings time virtually no ghosting or tracing. comes with built in webcam, mic and speakers not a huge deal lol but a decent perk.
Still full hd and same ratio just as the others.

only con is that the monitors base isn't really that adjustable no pivoting, no height, adjustment and no swivel just tilts up and down.

on the bright side asus makes quality product - ASUS MK241H Black 24" 2ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with 1.3M Pixel Webcam 450 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 3000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

but between the dell and the samsung go with the samsung lol

Smile Re: Better monitor?

thanks for the help folks. i am going to go with the ASUS monitor, its cheaper and i read a lot of good reviews from very happy ppl, some ppl only complained about how it only tilted up and down but i plan on using a VESA mount anyways. i really appreciate your replies, again thanks.
