Hi Everybody,
I am building a gaming computer and need to get a new monitor. I was looking at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824002114 What do you think? Any minimum specs i should look for for gaming?
Thanks

The aspect ratio seems kinda small, and I cant find the Response time...

Anything above an 8ms Resonse time shouldnt be looked at for gaming.

You should be able to fine a 12ms version which is just fine. I have the 20" widescreen from Dell and I love it. No ghosting at all, and the widescreen ROCKS! It is getting rather cheap as well. I think around $500.
