I dunno about the brand but the specs seem good with only 5ms 700:1 contrast and 249.99 for a 22 inch widescreen. Seems like good reviews too. I would go with that just becuase of the size but then again that high res has a toll on your card too so I would go with this if you want a better name in monitors, 2 inches smaller but Acer make awesome monitors and I'm sure it wouldn't dissapoint

Any reason why Newegg isn't on there? They are so much cheaper than what you listed.

For $180 (190 before $10 discount) ($140 after rebates), you get a 19" Widescreen Hanns-G, with good reviews

He said he only wants to buy from a store so no newegg.

Also that monitor isn't DVI..even though you can get an adaptor the other is better and 10 bucks cheaper.
