Default Re: what's a good 22" monitor (LG or Samsung)?

I am about to order/buy my monitors.
But I have one more question:

Would the LG 22" W2234S-BN or Samsung 22" 2243NW be good choices either?

They are both in the lower price segment.
Do you think they will be of good quality, of should I spend a little more money?
If yes, what kind of monitor would you recommend?

Thanks,
Lars

Thanks !
Would the screensize of 24" be a problem for my GPU (Sapphire HD 4870, 1024MB)?

I don't know too much about it, do I have to take ma GPU power into consideration when getting a certain screensize?

What about these two monitors:

or :

Would either (or both) of these be a good choice?

You take GPU power into consideration when you start hitting 1920 x 1200, which is the typical 24" resolution. With a 22" you'd get around 5+ fps than a 24", because it has less pixels for the GPU to process.

Either one of those Samsungs are fine. Samsungs are always good.

If you had the cash, perhaps look at these.

Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" - $279.99
Newegg.com - Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 400 cd/m2 3000:1 ACM - LCD Monitors

It's a great monitor of the money. I'm planning on picking up another myself.

Thanks, guys !

I appreciate your help and suggestions.

I will look into those different options.

Since I want two monitors (when using the PC as a digital audio worksation, lots of windows will be opene, so having two monitors makes life much easier when recording), I do not want get two of the exact same model. Maybe I won't even need 22", and even a smaller one would be fine.
So far the monitors I have considered were kinda cheap, but still good brands (LG and Samsung), and I don't even know if I could tell the different between a monitor that's cheap and one that's a bit more expensive.
