So really, any LCD should be fine for text, as long as I employ ClearType.
Yes. Exactly.

If you ain't playing fast action games then you don't need the mega-short response times. ClearType just lets you adjust your screen so that it looks best to you.

These days with the right deal you can get a widescreen 20.1in Dell for around $469.

I looked at some in the store the other day, adjusted the settings (turned on cleartype, maximized resolution) and I was not impressed with LG or ViewSonic for text. Sony, Samsung, and HP models all had terrific, crisp text.
