The ASUS 1080P Monitor or that Samsung is pretty awesome!

The 1080P Monitor is quite a steal for that price though, games will look really beautiful with a good enough video card

I doubt he has a good graphics card with a budget. So what card do you have, Santa? A GTX 295 X2? You're the jolly fat man, right?

This is a great monitor, I got it a couple of weeks ago. Very nice picture and the speakers are pretty good for internal.
