Default In the Market for an LCD Monitor

Hello gentlemen, I'm in the market for an LCD Monitor.

I just built my new rig (see sig) and now the last thing on my list to complete my new setup is a Monitor. I'm currently using a 17" 25MS Dell monitor ( ). Strangely I don't notice ghosting at all, maybe my eye sight's bad. Anyway, I'll be using my new monitor for Gaming so it should preferably have a low response time, even if my eye's are bad .

I've been thinking I should go with a 19", now i'm not sure if I want to make the jump to Widescreen, since i'm perfectly fine without it and not all games support it. But I guess I could be convinced to if there's really any benefits since most newer games will support it.

These are the one's i've been looking at so far. Also, as far as Budget goes, I don't have that much of a tight budget, but nothing too far over 300$.

CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600
MOBO: P5W DH Deluxe
RAM: 2GB DDR2-800 Corsair RAM
PSU: OCZ GameXStream 700W
SPU: X-FI XTreme Music
HDD: 10,000RPM 150GB Raptor

All in a Thermaltake Armor
Got a few LEDs too...

I've got a 19" Gateway widescreen and I love it. That Samsung 20" looks pretty nice. It's got a nice native resolution. If you can afford that, I'd pick that one up.
