Default LF Gaming Monitor

Hey guys looking for a gaming monitor upgrade.
Current LCD = Viewsonic Extreme vx922 19" 4:3 2ms response great color but the brightness is avg and contrast was avg IMO. Cant remember the xact numbers.
Anwyays im lookign to obviously go widescreen 16:10 preferably but 16:9 not out of the question at the right price. I originally wanted a 22 1920x1200 but found that to my knowledge only Lenovo makes 1 and its as expensive if not more then all the 24inch TN panels. If anyone knows of another 22 that does the 1920x1200 res at a reasonable price please let me know as id RATHR have 22in over the 24 24 is just too big IMO. That being said ill be running a ati 4870 so it seems a little silly to have a 1680x1050 panel but that might be what i do in the meantime until the 1920x1200 panels come down in price for good ones. for a 22 id budget 300 and for a 24 400ish both are flexible if its a good panel but dont want to spend a fortune or id mide as well just buy a 1080p big screen lol. Any suggestions? Id like it to have good settings for calibration of grayscales colors etc etc.

My System Specs


If a TN panel is fine by you the BenQ E2200HD is 1920x1080 and 22" in size. Low input lag, fast response, and it works very well with ATI 4870 cards too. Also has VGA and HDMI and will work with a console over HDMI or VGA without issue. Another one is the Samsung 2343BW(x) 23" with 2048x1152 resolution, also works well with ATI card, but only has DVI and VGA. Either one is under $300.00 and a pretty good screen. Both are TN panels.
