    Hey, I have just built myself my "Dream" computer! lol, and I was wondering if someone could recommend me a nice top of the line monitor, something other than those big chunky huge monitors. I have an LCD right now that has a maximum resolution of: 1600x1200...is that good?

    So yea, can you give me some ideas...I have a 6800 Ultra so I want a really good resolution screen picture. And I ONLY use this computer for gaming...DOOM 3, Halo, Far Cry, Steam Games, UT2004, ect.

    Thanks alot guyz...

    well if ur LCD is set at 1600*1200 then thats all u need
    even if u have 17 in or 19 in LCD display
    u ger more pixels at higher resolutions
    but i think something like a LCD monitor from viewsonic is very good
    but dont get DAEWOO trust me dont get DAEWOO

    Note that a lot of this text was taken from a previous post I did in March with a few exceptions…

    When you start looking at LCD's and you start to compare specs, you might notice something very unique with every single one of them, like all:
    [bold]17" LCD monitors have a Pixel Pitch of 0.264mm
    19” LCD monitors have a Pixel Pitch of .294mm
    15” LCD monitors have a Pixel Pitch of .297mm[/bold]

    They might change a bit here and there with their response times, contrast ratio and brightness, but all in all they will be so close it will amaze you.

    If you are a gamer, try to have a Response Time less than 25ms, most gamers prefer under 18ms.

    Brightness-300cd/m2 and up, this might be a factor if viewing under certain lighting conditions.

    Contrast-400:1 and up, most now are at least 450:1.

    A funny thing happened when Costco puts LCD monitors on sale, like a Princeton for example. The Website of Princeton had better specs for their exact same monitor then what Costco showed for them, which helps to justify a price difference.

    I still am a firm believer that Price is what matters most on this at this time since most specs are nearly all the same, or tweaked a bit to help justify a difference in price, unless they have other features such as a better stand, USB’s built in, etc.
