Default Need options on a few monitors

I am thinking about buying a new 22" LCD to replace my 20" CRT. The main uses that require a nice looking screen are games and DVD's. I'm not too much of a snob when it comes to monitors and playing at insane resolution levels but I want to make sure that my games iwll still look good and better than on the CRT. For the price +/- $150 I know I am not getting the absolute top of the line but that's OK as long as it still works good for games and movies.

My PC specs...
XP Pro SP3
GeForce 8800 GTS 512
AMD x2 6400
Not sure if anything else would matter for a monitor.

#1 - Acer X213Wbd 21.6" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Refurbished, 5ms, 1680 x 1050, WSXGA+, DVI-D, HDCP, 16:10, 2500:1 RB-ET.YX3WP.001 at

Looks pretty good and comes with a DVI cable

#2 - - Hanns·G Hi-221DPB Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Also looks good, great reviews on NewEgg but it doesn't come with a DVI cable so it will probably cost another $15-20

I am thinking about waiting until Monday to see if any better deals come up but I don't want to miss out while the price is down.

P.S. I hate it when you typo the title and then can't edit it.
