Eh, I can't go back to 1680x1050. I've been gaming at 1600x1200 for 5 years now. That'd be a downgrade for me. And yes, I would notice it.

How is the response time on IPS panels? All of the reviews I've read of PVA panels mention that if you're at all concerned about response times, do not get a PVA. That's the main thing I'm concerned about because even a tiny bit of display lag would have me using my CRT again. I can't stand that.

Also, I've heard good things about Samsung displays, but a friend of mine has a 32" 720P Samsung LCD and I wasn't all that impressed with it. The backlight is horribly uneven. It isn't even remotely close to being uniform when you're looking at a dark picture. That put me off of Samsung a bit, but I'd definitely still give them a shot if I had a recommendation for a specific screen.

My price is flexible, but $500 is out of the question when I can get a "decent" screen for $250.
