Newegg.com - Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 400 cd/m2 3000:1 ACM - LCD Monitors

Wicked awesome 24" with 2ms response. Third cheapest of the Acer 24" monitors.

Also, not all reviewers on newegg know what they are talking about. the 7200.11 series is really something to look at. Even if you don't think you'll use the extra space, it's worth it for further down the line, not to mention it's faster and more reliable. Besides, it's got a 5 year warranty. No need to worry about that.

the only difference is nvidia chipsets are the only capable chipsets for sli. if you want sli you have to go nvidia. otherwise the p45 chipset tends to be more widely recommended.

newegg reviews don't mean anything.

under 5ms you'll be hard pressed to see in real world application. and that 2" gives you a bump in resolution which is why I would suggest it.

Newegg reviews are pretty much crap, and bad to go on...

The best way to know if the part is decent is research it manually or ask us

Yeah, yeah, I try not to get too biased about the number and quality of reviews, but I mean going through them and reading them individually you can kind of tell whether it's a true analysis of the product or someone just frustrated or biased. I'll take a look at the 7200.11 again.

I MAY be going SLI down the road, haven't decided yet. Plus, with the 750i I have picked out right now, it is included in a combo for the GPU I want, which saves me $60. Can't go wrong with that.

As said above I probably won't be dropping an extra $100 on one. You said I'd get a bump in resolution--isn't that just a bump in "recommended resolution"? Couldn't I just increase the resolution on the 22" to the 24-inch-recommended res? Also, what exactly is Grey-to-Grey (GTG)? Read up on it a little but don't quite know all its advantages/disadvantages.

P.S. Thanks a lot for all the feedback so far.
