    I would say anything that's Acer. They make the best LCD's, IMO.

    Agreed. There are some nice 22" and 24" Acer models that are supposedly some of the best in their class (for graphics work).

    Not in photo editing. If you were a graphic designer it might matter.
    Webdesign shouldnt be affected either, since web design doesnt use a huge range of colours.

    if you have a keen eye, yes.
    for what you need, try to shoot for the most number of colors and a high (800:1 or higher) contrast ratio.

    ok, well being that I have a POS crt monitor right now, I probably wont notice the difference. And I do like the samsung but it is about $30.00 more, and I know it has the rebate but after 6 weeks of waiting for it, its not a big deal for me.

    another thing, Im running WindowsXP SP2 and in display properties it only allows you to set the resolution to 1280X1024. My graphics card supports up to DVI-I 2560X1600. The monitor im getting is best viewed at 1680X1050. So how do I get these properties set correctly for the monitor?

    The new resolution should be available when you plug in your new monitor :)

    Correct.

    Example. Currently only 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1280x960 and 12801024 are available.

    If I was to plug in my other monitor (a dual monitor setup), I could then right click on that screen>display properties> and Id have new resolutions in there (i.e. I set it to 1440x900)
