Post new monitor

Im looking to get a new lcd monitor. I have probably up to $350 to spend on it. maybe more, preferably a little less. i have a 9600gt to run it. the only thing is that it has to come off from amazon.

thanks

$350 Limit looks like a high quality 22" or a low end 24" which do you prefer?

Get a Samsung 22inch. You would probably struggle a bit with 24inch resolution on newer games.

Amazon.com: Samsung Touch Of Color T220 22-inch LCD Monitor: Electronics

That's the one I was talking about, but it's prob. cheaper to go to Best Buy or Circuit City to buy it. And you'll have it quicker

i was thinking the 24" might be pushing it. so i know samsung makes nice ones... but is the premium too high? this is all in amazon gift certificates, so all extra money from the total of $300-450 can go to buying other cool stuff.... maybe a new hdd...

any other ones on amazon?

thanks

This one looks quite descent: Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2253BW Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1 - LCD Monitors

Or you could get an Asus: Newegg.com - ASUS VW222U Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 2000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

I have the Asus and its a very good screen. The T220 will be better, but it is more expensive.

9600GT is going to be hard pressed to run 1920x1200 resolution. You are better off with a solid 20/22" monitor.

There is no bleeding on mine. There is a clear plastic thign around the edges which light might reflect off from, but no bleeding.
