Default Best gaming widescreen LCD monitor

I am looking in getting a wide screen monitor to play games on.

What manufacturer should i look for? What screen size? I have a budget of 250.

well what size are you looking for? samsung's are a universal favorite.

this is a pretty good one.

Samsung SM-226BW 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Glossy Black

a little over priced compared to what it is here in the US but you can maybe find it for a better price elsewhere. you might also be able to squeeze a 24" monitor into that budget if you can find a good price.

If you want a bigger widescreen monitor the sweet spot is around 20 or 22" inch don't past those size if you don't want to take a hit in performance when playing games, but that just imo.
