Default In the Market for a new LCD Moniter

Since it is highly probable that my next video card will be a 4870 X2 my current moniter is just not cutting it with a max resolution of only 1440 x 900.

So I will be looking for a 22' widescreen.

I was looking at these two, I would really not spend more than I have too.. So any suggestions? I would order from either newegg or zipzoomfly.

AOC 2219S
Newegg.com - AOC 2219S1 Piano Black Finish 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1 - LCD Monitors

SCEPTRE X22WG-1080P
Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X22WG-1080P Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Edit: Consequently, I will be selling my Viewsonic 19' Widescreen va1912wb moniter in the next comming weeks for around 100 USD shipped, so if you interested keep an eye open in the BST Section..

I took a chance on a refurb samsung recently
and was pretty lucky, unit is just like new
only downside was no dvi cable included...
I dunno if you are brave like me though :P

just so you know the sceptre isnt 1080p. It only has 1680 horizontal pixels where as 1080p has 1920.

I would get that samsung. If not, check out a dell 22". A little bit pricier, but well worth it in my opinion.

Alright, I changed my mind, I am going for a 24'.

Find me something cheaper or better for the same price than this:

Newegg.com - BenQ T241W Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height and Pivot Adjustments 250 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

I ended up going with this one..
Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X24WG-1080P Black 24" 2ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 4000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Now I must wait on the 4870 X2's....
