I suggest this monitor, I use the DVI cable for my computer and the VGA cable for my xbox 360, its has a source selector so you don't have to unplug any cables and the picture on it is amazing.

Well, I have not used it in games yet (make only one week I received it) but I have did some 3DMark06 tests and I have not noticed particular problems. I'm truly satisfied. Nice colors, bright and huge since I do some cad drawings. For the price it's hard to beat.

yycraven, as for me - I'm happy owner of ViewSonic VX2435wm and strongly recommend to buy this monitor.
Look at its reviews and I'm more than sure that you won't be disapointed if you buy this one!
I'm playing my PlayStation3 on this monitor and it gives me awesome picture!

your gonna get a wide variety of response,

3 things to know

contrast ratio

response time anything under 5ms

and brand is nothing, but stay away from sceptre

I have a love of my L226WA , with 2ms games like Quake ET and crysis shine,,, but it is very hard to find =)

Sansung 245’s are good, nice price too.
Performance may be a little off, but you gotta be a real pixel geek to notice.
24” for less that 400 is not bad, I’ve seen them on display in store, they look pretty good.

24" is too big for everyday use I found.

22" is the perfect size.

If you think your getting 2ms your sadly mistaken and its more like 5-8ms
3000:1? Hardly more like 700-800:1 if your lucky.

The two LCD's I'm looking at are the Samsung 2253BW 22" Widescreen HDCP (1680x1050, 8000:1, 2ms, DVI, Black) and the
LG L226WTY 22" Widescreen HDCP (1680x1050, 3000:1, 2ms, DVI, Black)

I will try to see if I can find the ViewSonic VX2435wm and check it out.
Still there are alot of choice's out there
let me know if you have any other choices for me.
