recommend others if you know of any.

Want to keep the price <$300, but willing to look higher.

I had this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824116381&ATT=24-116-381&CMP=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r and it was awsome :D there was no ghosting at all, I wanted somthing bigger so I got the Dell 2405, but overall its a great monitor (pirate) I think widescreen is the way to go now, theres alot of games that support it. Here is a great site http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page :D

Its the fastest monitor available today without any serious drawbacks. Period. I know at least 3 people buying at LEAST 1 in the next month.

Not including myself. :)

The only reason why I chose a 1280x1024 native is because I want maximum frame rates with all options turned up. On my current monitor I use 1280x960 (4:3 crt). For now my system is very capable of of using the highest settings, but if I buy the monitor you recommend, and I want to turn the resolutions lower for more graphic-intense games (fear), won't I run into ghosting, trailing issues etc...

My current setup:
fx60
2 gig corsair XMS (2x 1gig) 2-3-3-6
1 eVGA 7900GTX
1 WD 74 Gig Raptor
ASUS A8N Premium

(everything running at stock speeds for NOW)

I got this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824001225 supposed to be here today,the one you are showing is a great monitor, there is also a BenQ 19" for $249 that has a 2ms responce time. I wanted a 20.1" so that it would go to 1600x1200 where I play most of my games at,and ever review I have seen says nothing but good about it ,I will find out ,I have done had two LCD 19" that I sent back infavor or my 21" trinitron CRT.

BUt what about the high resolution issue that I brought up earlier? Having to run at such hi resolutions will slow down the graphics if I want all features enabled.

What happens when you run at a lower than native resolution? Ghosting? Trails? (lcd is new to me)

If you do not use the DVI input you will have different resolutions and some say it is not as sharp but they still look pretty good.If you get the one you are showing the ViewSonic VX922 you will not be dissapointed.

So changing to lower resolutions will not cause Ghosting/Trailing etc????

It is possable that it might have some ghosting at lower resolutions ,but with that monitor it should be very little and if you are not looking for it ,you will not even notice it.and if you have a 7900GTX then you should be able to play any game with the DVI port and run it at 1280x1024

Which monitor are you referring to? The one I originally asked about or the other recommended one.

He is right about the vx922.

I have 2 of them and they are awesome, viewing angle isnt so good, but the pic quality and gaming on it are awesome.No ghosting at all

About the viewing angle...my friend and I like to watch each other play bf2 often. If I was standing/sitting next the the chair on the left, how bad would it be?

shouldnt be to bad, the monitor just doesnt have alot of adjustment options.
this is a decent review of the vx922
