    wii be getting a new mon in the next 20-30 days. need some help deciding:lol:

    im going to get a 22"- either dell, samsung or viewsonic.
    the only games im playing right now r- gw, civ bts, & sins of s.a. the only games i plan on getting in the future(at this time) r diablo3 & gw2. & hopefully some sort of startegy. so as u can see i dont play fps anymore so that is not a consideration.
    my main priority is iq- across the board.
    my budget is $300 max, not including shipping & tax.
    any input greatly appreciated:D

    Thats also a good choice so no objections from me, plus you are the one who will end up with the monitor so if you like it then go for it :)

    will do....

    i was orginally looking at acer 1152p style 26 inch monitor.. but the general feedback on that a number of months ago was CRAP..... but this samsung using a SAMSUNG lcd, seems to be getting winning votes

    Alsmost all the monitors out there are very good. Just take a decent manufacturer and choose your looks.

    I should go for a 1920*1200 with HDMI. Maybe you can even find one with a DVB-T tuner in it so you can use it as a TV. :) (like the one from Newegg).

    A guy i know had a T240HD and it's a decent monitor. The glass plate in front of the panel is also a nice feature because then you can touch the screen a little bit more :p

    @ Judas

    2343BX? Or do you mean the 2343BW? Because I can't find any info about the BX. BW looks decent though. I also considered it but the looks aren't that nice imo.
