Default Acer vs samsung 22'' ...

I need to pick up a new monitor for my Rig...

I wanted to see if I could swing a 24'' ...but they are just too much money.

I can get the acer 22'' for $229 w/ free shipping...
Newegg.com - Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - LCD Monitors
or the Samsung for $259 w(after MIR) with free shipping...
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2253BW Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1 - LCD Monitors

Whata u guys think ? is the samsung worth the extra cash ?

are there any others I should check out ??

I'm using that exact Acer monitor and my buddy has two of the Samsungs and I honestly see no difference between the two. I play my 360 on it and its smooth as can be. Only nice thing about the Samsung over the Acer is that you can switch between DVI and VGA with one button on the front where as the Acer you have to go through the menu. Not a big deal, but I thought I might mention it.

Thats crazy talk..... ... you're going to need SLI GTS G92 if you want any chance of doing that...
