Default Searching for a new Monitor..

read the topic..

since my current monitor is only a 15 inch LCD, and since i'm a gamer.. i'm pretty tired of this small screen.. so i want a new one.. I don't know much about monitors and how the screen effects the game play at all.. but basically I want a new LCD Monitor that's at least 19 inches and I was wondering if any of you could help me out pick out the best one.. because i'm not familiar with all the LCD settings like Contrast Ratio, and the displays type and all that stuff.. my budget is around $400 - 450.. uhm so if any of you guys can help me out.. I would appreciated it a lot

Go with 19", minimum.

Man, I can't believe how much of a difference a few inches can make. Please, no jokes on that one.

Go with Viewsonic or Acer. Both very reliable.
