Out of the LCD's you listed, the last one is the best, but the second one is alright too.

Too much ram in my opinion, and I also think you should get a 6800gt seeing as they are under 300 bucks right now.

Also, I wouldn't go with Asus, they are bad with the AMD64 platform.

It bothers me when people recommend that 4ms viewsonic. Yes it looks good .....but thats response rate is BS. Its not 4ms, that is it's peak low point!!! There are no standards for response rates so manufactuers are lieing to us.... The Viewsonic VP191b 8ms is much faster and better overall. Check it out:

http://www.behardware.com/articles/5...tn-ips-va.html

As well the vx924 is still a tn panel and the vp191b is a va: va = better color , better viewing angles, better movie quality.....

But, If you can afford the dell widescreens and your card supports it, they are pretty sweet, go for it. Depends on if you want, wide or 4:3.
