Go with Samsung. Sure, they might be expensive, but the display is crystal clear, and plus, the TV is sexy too!

Exactly....

Sceptre 20.1in. widescreen
5ms
1680x1050
1000:1 contrast ratio

Way better contrast ratio then any monitor I found for $240, including Dell. I wouldn't buy anything from them if you put a gun to my head. I have this Sceptre. If you run it in DVI, you'll think you're playing on a CRT because you'll get no ghosting or shearing.

Huh? What are you talking about? This comment has me absolutely perplexed. Are you implying that widescreens are bad for gaming?

Yes I am! I mean doesn't the native resolution totally not match what most games usually play at, not to mention that theres so many games out there that don't support wide screen.

even if they don't, you can often edit the game to make it run in widescreen.

And pretty much every major game from this point on will support wide screen. Everything I play already does.

Every game that's half-modern today can run widescreen.
