well I just got this great 20.1 widescreen monitor that is amazing. It is a BenQ. Here is the link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824014105

It is a little bit more than your budget, but if you can do it, it is worth it!

I think that the 20.1 inch monitor wont work for you.

The Hyundai could work, providing that they give you a car with it , but for now, the ViewSonic should be great. At least it's a name brand, and it's gonna look sharp!

If youre a gamer, definitely do not get a Widescreen. I've heard it distrorts the picture quite a bit.

I'd get if a ViewSonic if I were you. If you buy from an asian company like Rosewill or Hyundai calling for customer service will be ****. I'm not sure where ViewSonic is based out of, but I do know their customer service agents actually speak proper english.

I have the VA912b and I'm super happy with it. It was 280ish. The monitor Talldude suggested, Q9b-2, isnt bad either.

Best advice is to go with any ViewSonic; you cant go wrong!
