Default Help pick monitor, 19"

I've been waiting on the price drop to buy my parts, but I have decided to just go with the eVGA 8800GTS 320mb over the 640mb, not just to save money but because I'm going to be getting a 19inch monitor and from what I've been reading, the 320mb will still be able to tear through any game out right now; the 640 just doesn't seem necessary. However, I do realize that these 8800 cards will quickly become obsolete when games start fully utilizing dx10, so I don't want to invest too much into something that will only last me a year and a half or so.

That being said, was wondering if you had any recommendations for a 19inch widescreen monitor under $190.00?

I appreciate the help,

If you were to go with hanns g, i would go with this one:

Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-191APB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Its $5 cheaper, and it is better looking than the other hanns G monitor IMO.

Oh I agree 100% I would have never thought of this off name brand if folks wouldn't have started recommending it. Great price. I am just torn between the 17in and 19in myself. Much the same as the 320gb 8800 gts and the 640gb 8800 gts.
