Default 20" LCD monitor

Im redesigning my room soon and there is going to be no space for my 22" CRT so i have to go flat screen. I dont want to go much smaller than what Ive already got, so a 20" widescreen would be good.
Im looking for less than £400 (GBP)

What should i be looking at?

Im in england so everything more expensive over here.

LG L2000C. The best 20.1" LCD there is. Don't know if you can find it outside the US however.

If you are going to be gaming or any work in CAD/photoshop, that is the cheapest 20" LCD worth considering.
