DVI makes a noticeable difference.

Wouldn't know I've only had the one LCD.

Very, very, rarely

Here's one that I found, I think it is the one I am gonna go with. Has a lot of good reviews, and the price isn't bad:

Also consider the Viewsonic VP191B. It uses an MVA panel which is better than that TN panel in the VX924.

If your willing to spend about $300 more:

Yes it's Gateway but I can testify that this monitor is amazing. The specifications and features are a steal considering it's price tag. So far I haven't found a catch, no dead pixels or ghosting etc...

I'm using DVI-D Dual link on my ATI X800; games and movies are crisp and clear!

DVI does indeed make a difference. I have a Samsung 19" 930B Syncmaster LCD, and I think its awesome...the only complaint i have is its a little blurry at 1024x768...kinda reminds me of console games. But on these newer games I can sacrifice AA to run at 1280x1024. Im nervous about FEAR though...

F.E.A.R. is pretty intense on even the most high-end machines. The demo runs fairly well on mine and looks great on my LCD!

What are you talking about? TN panels are a gamers panel which offers faster responce times. MVA panels are for MOVIES & Photoeditting.

Those differences don't make 1 better then the other... He needs to buy his MONITOR based on what he's going to use it for mostly...
Based on his HL2 comment, i'm willing to bet it's more about gaming to him.

The Viewsonic VX-924 is a great LCD for any use... Buy it. NOW!
