    LCD Monitor Suggestions

    I needs a suggestion for a monitor, CRT started to flicker.


    22-24 inch preferable
    Are LED backlit LCD's affordable?
    199 dollar range?
    Good for gaming?

    I suggest a 120Hz monitor for gaming. There's a new Acer one coming out, which looks like it will be good. I'm sorry I can't remember the model number now.

    I would have recommended the 2490WUXi2 with proper sRGB CCFL backlit and H-IPS panel, but then I saw your budget.

    So, just get the fastest and biggest TN you can buy for $200.

    I spent alot on my 24 inch. Now in a trade atm. But I wish I would of just went with a normal 24 inch. 1920x1080. I spent 280$ because I HAD to have 1920x1200. I wish I would of just stayed at the 1080p res. My advice is just get a 1080p. Dont spend alot more on a 1920x1200.

    Look at my monitor, samsung 2494HS. LED backlit, cheap, has HDMI.

    its arguable. There are people on both sides of the fence.

    Side A: More pixels is always better. you fit more on screen.

    Side B (my side): Tons of games are console ports. they're designed for 1080p (16:9 aspect ratio) - even if they scale fine to fit on screen, they're either stretching vertically, or having bits cut off horizontally to fit. Dragon age origins and GTA IV give a wider image on 16:9, for example. In theory you SHOULD get more vertical. but it sadly doesn't work that way in real life.
