with a 7600GS? I'd probably go with the 22" monitor.

There's probably better monitors out there for the price

True but the other has a rebate which means I would need $330 + tax in cash , in which I don't have.

I asked this question because I have $300 right now that I can spend and I could get the 22" monitor today (its not a black friday ad) rather than camping up for the 24" on black friday in 4 am in the morning.

Why is the 22" only retails for $270 as the original price? Why so cheap?

Go with the SOYO you don't need a response time that quick. You will need a new gfx card to play games at a reasonable level though at that resolution

I've never heard of the soyo but just lookin from the stats and price you have there i'd say grab it. 6ms is plenty fast.

Is there even a noticable difference between 6ms and 2ms? If I don't need 2ms, why did computer manufacturers make it at that speed then?

Actually you might have to camp before 4 am. Well at least at my compusa there was a line at 4 am last year. If you're downgrading to a 22" I'd much ratehr go for a samsung.

I just bought the scepter 22" . And right now I am not satisfied with it! It displays the quality far worst than my old monitor. Do I change the settings or what?

return policy is 14 days. I'm still going to camp out for Friday. If I don't make it (the camp) then I will still have the monitor .
