Looking for a 22ish-inch monitor for gaming. Is 16:9 better for PC gaming or 16:10? I personally like the look of 16:10 as 16:9 seems a bit too wide and too short vertically. 16:10 seems more natural. But, keeping my opinions aside, which is better for PC gaming and which monitor would you recommend?

That's a good samsung monitor. I second the 22" monitor above.

As for the 16:10 monitors, you can get them at 1680x1050 fairly easily and cheaply. However, the larger resolution ones, 1920x1200 or above, tend to be expensive nowadays. You're better off getting the 16:9 monitors. They're dirt cheap and very good.

UltraSharp 2209WA (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=320-7825) The best 22" monitor you can buy.

Why is that monitor worth $310? I don't see anything that stands out... If you're gonna pay $300, you might as well just go up to a 24" or so and get 1920x1080 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001338

I like 1920x1200 on my 24" Samsung 2493HM, but those extra pixels will cost you a bunch...

That monitor costs so much because it is an IPS panel.

Exactly, it's an IPS panel. I have one, switched from a TN Samsung and I would never go back.

The IPS is worth a lot, but when you consider that you can get a larger, 1080P LED backlit TN panel for less, it's value is a lot harder to swallow.

I don't see many on newegg, but maybe they don't have IPS in the title or whatever the search works on. There's a 23" ViewSonic for $300, close to the DELL for that type of panel. Being pretty happy with my current stuff, I guess I'd go for bigger vs wider viewing angle and better colors. :P

This monitor is in so much demand they jack the price up to slow demand. I paid $215.00 for this monitor a while back but if you save that page and check every once and a while it will go on sale.
