Default Just ordered!!

This:

Newegg.com - Gateway HD2200 Black-Silver 22" 4ms (UltraResponse enabled) 5ms (UltraResponse disabled) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 - Retail

No i didnt pay $350, i got $50 off with a newegg promo code. As some of you may know, i had been looking at a similar priced asus, but i went to circuit city and saw this display in action and it was simply beautiful. Better than any other displays there, and the hdmi and component inputs with pip won me over.

for some reason that link doesn't work for me...


EDIT: 4 tries later and I gotta say I like that look (I'm glad you stopped looking at the Asus..)

they should start stocking those nice Dell Monitors

Shouldint be a problem with aa off, its also clocked to the 512mb speeds and ive got my slider set to performance. Im hitting 90fps with 2x aa/af @1440x900. Im also gonna upgrade to a 5000+, so thatll give me more power as well. If i really need to, ill just sell off this card and get the 512mb, I think itll run fine though.

If you guys get a chance go check it out, theres also a 24". That sucker costs $549 but it does full 1080p (22" does 720p) and looks great just like its 22" brother. The grandpa is a 30" but i havent seen it, gateway came out with these due to the overwhelming customer response on the 30".

They got em at circuit city, best buy, and fry's.
