Default Need advice on choosing a gaming monitor.

first of I dont know much about monitors. So Im building a extreme gaming computer and Im going to have 2 ati 5970s in there and that means that I need a pretty good monitor. I dont know what good companies are but I heard dell is pretty good, the monitor size can be anywhere from 23"-30". So tell me what you guys think a good monitor would be.

budget?

I would assume it is high. 2x5970's is screaming for a 30 inch running a resolution of 2560 x 1600

Much less would be a waste of your cards.
