Default New monitor

My LG 1750s is getting a bit old, so I thought it was time to upgrade. I checked the recommended components list, but almost all of the monitors are deactivated. A mod really need to do some house keeping on that thread.

Anyways, I need a new LCD, I would like it to be digital and 20inch, or something close. My budget is around $200 Any suggestions?

Newegg.com - Acer B203Wbdmr Black 20" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height & Pivot Adjustments 300 cd/m2 2500:1 (DCR) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

I don't care for the built in speakers, but it has the best contrast ratio.

BenQ makes a great 20" widescreen:
Newegg.com - BenQ G2000WD Black 20.1&#34; 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd&#47;m2 1000&#58;1 - LCD Monitors
or
Newegg.com - BenQ FP202W V3 Black 20&#34; 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd&#47;m2 1000&#58;1 - LCD Monitors

the second is a little brighter.
