Samsung FTW. Just pick out the biggest HD model you can afford.

the samsung Rose series is great (p2350/70), but if you want absolute best i think the 120hz 3d capable monitors are the best, you'll have to shell out a bit though. Acer make some good high end monitors too.
<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 : Asus GTX 480
G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
Silverstone Strider Plus 1Kw : Sony DRU-870s Optical
Samsung P2350 Monito

Anything Samsung, you are going to pay a bit of a premium but you really do get what you pay for when you get any Samsung product.

i have a Samsung 23" LCD monitor and its freaking amazing, compared to what i had before a 15" glass monitor ( a samsung no less haha ) this thing is awesome!
