Post Which to buy?

Ok, I finally have my money for a new monitor.

Here are my choices:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009039

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824024508

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116352

Ok, I know it's an LCD. I want one, so don't give me stuff about how much CRT's are better.

I can't really go any higher than the prices listed.

If you have any other suggestions feel free to put them in.

I have the ACER AL1714 and its beautiful. NO dead pixels.

And LCDs with fast response times are better than CRTs.

EDIT: This is the one I have.

I saw both of them...didn't look like that much of a difference, let alone worth the extra $100.
