maybe you should look at some widescreen 19" monitors. but the viewsonic vx series are good. i found that my friends gateway widescreen had better color quality.

I hate when people spend 300$ on graphics cards, then virtually nothing on the processor... You SERIOUSLY need to get a better processor.

Default Monitor!

Your into Photoshop, well unless your perpared to spend lots of money you can get a much much much Better CRT monitor for the same price of a expensive LCD. If your into editing i honestly belive CRT is the way to go.
