LCD Monitors - Which one to get for gaming?

Recommended Posts

I need a decent 17 or 19'' LCD monitor for everyday use.

I game most of the time, but i also do some 3d and design.

 

Any good recomendation? Amazon has some nice models but i do not know which one to get. I prefer to shop there since i get free 2day shipping. but Newegg will do too just fine :)

 

 

This is the selection i am looking at, tell me which one owns them all :)

Budget = $250max (AR is okay)

you get what you pay for .. so a 19" lcd for $250 isnt going to be a good one thats forsure.

 

make sure you stick with reputable companies like viewsonic or samsung. cheaper now means paying more later when you get a cheap lcd and it breaks down or has dead pixels. also make sure it has a response time of at least 12ms (the lower the better)
