    Well I am by far no expert in LCD monitors and would like some personal opinions. I do not know what combination of resolution vs screen size vs refresh rate per dollar is reasonable or the best in my price range.

    I want the largest screen possible (24"+?:D) that will still perform even if it maxes my 4870 1Gb card out. :eek: I do plan to upgrade my system in the near future.

    I need to keep the price max at $200 shipping included but you may count MIR. :)

    I have a couple Samsung 2493HM's I'm thinking of selling. They are 1920x1200 24" LCD's with height adjust, tilt, rotate (landscape/portrait). Fairly nice monitors, even today.

    Please let me know if you decide to sell. I might save you from listing one. ;)

    Update if the price is right might take both of them. I have a friend who may take one.

    OK Im still looking. Can anyone tell me pros and conns or any input on these two? :twitch:

    Hanns·G HZ251HPB $198.98
    or
    I-inc iH-252HPB $201.25

    I like the fact both have HDMI. The biggest knock I can see is the I-INC has 1-Year limited Warranty :( where the Hanns has a 3-Year Limited (3-Year Parts/Labor,1-Year LCD/Backlight).

    I hate decisions like this. :cry:

    I ended up picking the Hanns·G HZ251HPB. I got it today and it is very nice no dead pix anywhere and very large. I went with a new one mainly due to the warranty. 3-Year Limited (3-Year Parts/Labor) should keep me covered.

    Go with an LED 1080p screen or a 2048x1152 screen :) Try to get a Samsung screen over Acer or Asus or Hans G

    I got the Hanns·G HZ251HPB yesterday and it is very nice no dead pix anywhere. Ill just have to see how it goes. I really wanted to stay at $200 and get as large a screen as possible. 1 day into it I have to say it is really nice. Gaming BFBC2 was very nice to say the least. :toast:
