Default New Gaming Monitor

Cameron is getting money for Christmas from grandma so he can upgrade his monitor.
Needs to be at least 23 inches.

Anyone can recommend a good/great monitor?
His current monitor is gateway. Hate them. Worst monitor ever.
budget: depends. not more then $250 I guess. [estimating xmas cash] unless you find a great one that costs a little more...not gonna cry over another $50 if the quality difference is huge.

Take a look at Samsung. I got a brand new 22" off ebay for $150.00 +free shipping. I love it for gaming. It auto detected and self corrected itself to my GPU. Go DVI with whatever you select. VGA is on it's way out AFAIC.

Good luck,
DA

this is what I just now ordered:
Newegg.com - ASUS VW246H Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

I think he'll love it. I did notice the 2ms Gray to Gray. I had no idea what the GTG was about. Thanks for letting me know.

wow..it's already sold out. It as available for about 5 minutes.

gtg means gray to gray, just means that it may be slightly more or less time from one color to another.
