Default Which monitor would you get.

I am currently looking for a new lcd monitor. I will be using it alot for games and video like watching movies so it needs to look great. Im not sure if I should make the switch to widescreen or not. Like if I watch a video that isnt widscreen will I have bars on the sides? I have a 19 inch monitor now and was thinking about getting a 20 inch this time but Im not sure. I would like to keep the price below $350. If anyone has some good ideas let me know and thanks for the help.

I was considering these monitors.

Im not sure why everyone thinks the dell is so good because so many people seem to either have one of those or some other dell model. I am worried about the 16 ms pixel response time. I am an avid gamer and 16 ms..... isnt that really slow and wont that cause alot of ghosting. I have never used a widscreen monitor before but im willing to try it out. I must have excellent performance in games and video also. Should I get one of these or something else?

I changed the links they should work now.

eh, not sure what it's called but it's the bad one. TN I believe? It's not the same as the other moniters have.
