I'm trying to find a pretty decent LCD Monitor with at least DVI and VGA (so i can hook up my xbox to it and have it on my desk). I'm looking around the 22" to 24" range but don't really wanna pay so much as to around 300 ish. The contrast ratio has to be decent, but resolution matters a little more. I kind of want at least 1920x1200 resolution, but those are really hard to find. I've found several Samsungs (I'm a samsung lcd fanboy, eye candy + pretty good) with 2 out of the 3, but none with all of them.

Anyone know any Acers, Hanns-Gs, and other brands that are pretty good and also pretty badass? It'd be nice to find one that's cheap and pretty good for a while. :biggrin:

I got a nice 19'' Dell of Ebay.

It's great.

Sign up for newegg.com and tigerdirect.com email updates, they always throw out flat panel monitors for 160 or so bucks.

I get those, but I always find something i don't like with them.

<--- picky when buying stuff.

I respectfully say you would be stupid to not use newegg, try and find the one you want and go to town, you definatley want a 24" so you can have full 1080p video

sign up for the newegg newsletter, maybe wait for some christmas deals, when i built my computer i got 40 dollars off an Acer 19" widescreen, it's very good quality

newegg is easily the best Online electronic vendor out there, nobody even comes remotely close

at that size you could also look into an HDMI port for blu ray or gaming

heres a bunch i just threw together in like 5 secs, don't go by these look on the site yourself there are alot of options

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824001294

EDIT: I'm pretty wasted from a full days studying, i didn't realize you said you actually use all of the newegg stuff

I've been monitoring newegg, crutchfields, tigerdirect, ecost, woot.com all for the last couple days hoping for a deal, I sort of want one before christmas. I'm betting on the holiday deals that I can get one pretty cheap, all while contemplating budget upgrading my pc.

If you want something cheap, you're going to have to make some consessions.

I have a 30" apple display. It wasn't cheap but the picture and the color is amazing.

Ive got a pair of Hanns-G 19's sitting on my desk right now. I bought them for 160 thinking when I was done with my current project I would just dump them into our inv and give them to the next pseudo-exec who thinks he needs a big flat panel monitor.

I think I'm going to put my Acer 19's in inv instead...

I have a ViewSonic 22" and I love it.

BTW, I've connected my xbox to another LCD monitor I had (a 19", I think?) and slowly, but surely the xbox graphics started burning out the LCD display. Not sure if a lot many others here try hooking up a xbox or ps3 to LCD monitors.

Viewsonic 22" NX2232w is what is used by Major League Gaming (MLG). The picture is great and it's really light weight for its size.

Is it just me, or is it sad there's something called "Major League Gaming?"

Why do those girls have bras on? Could you please ask them to take them off? Thanks.
