it will offer medium settings for the most part...depending on the game maybe even low-medium. Higher res sucks for performance bah. I heart my 19inch

I usually play BF2, CSS, The Sims 2, and LOTR at 1280x1024....runs flawlessly.

But I bet it will be great for movies, and playin' xbox 360 in HD.

It's actually worse. Not by a whole lot, just 3ms in response time. Other than that, the Sceptre is also better because of the 2000:1 contrast ratio versus the ViewSonic's 700:1.

The difference is that it's a little more pricier, because of the added HDMI port, along with the DVI and VGA port. But the one I mentioned has better specs on it, without the HDMI port. The one you linked, has 5ms response time and 1200:1 contrast. While the one posted here, has 2ms response time and 2000:1 contrast.
