I am currently looking for a monitor with low input lag and no ghosting or very little. i have been researching for the past week and can't find a true answer. first off i don't like dell or acer and currently i have a 19' samsung (not widescreen). My Price range is $200-$350. I am only a foot or 2 from the screen so viewing angle isnt a problem. I have been looking at a few.

Samsung PX2370 (good but heard from some people it can be a mess)
SAMSUNG XL2370
LG W2486L (I realy like this monitor but cant find anyone with it instock)
LG E2350V-SN

should i look into the 120hz monitors like the LG W2363D? i heard they are better for gaming

what size you want? quality will cost. unless you go Dell or Acer. Dell monitors arent that bad.

Other option if you are *only* wanting for gaming is hook up to TV. el cheapo way.

Dell is quite good in fact. I'm running a 21.5" full HD Dell and am loving it!

Samsung is good no doubt. Frankly, the difference between 23" and 24" won't be noticeable. The difference comes into play when you're upgrading more than 2" (22" to a 24"....21" to a 23").

I am really interested in why you don't like Dell or Acer.

I have an inexpensive (less than $200) 22" Acer 5ms 1680x1050, no ghosting or dead pixels. (fallout, half-life, Quake) Before this monitor I used a Dell crt that I got for $5 at auction, but it was a good gaming monitor too.

23 feet is a big goddamn screen. 23" in comparison to a 24"... now that's reasonable, but there's hardly any difference between the two.

and if it is 120 Hz... even better - will allow you some nVidia 3D experience (if your GPU and games allow)

What ever you get it doesn't matter as long as the one your getting does support or have 120Hz refresh rate on max resolution. Why? Because if your monitor can't sync to accommodate the processing of your video card your nice looking monitor will be a wasted gaming experience.

So as long as you have the 120Hz refresh rate option on the monitor your getting your all set for gaming. Now choose a good looking screen one that match the sparkle in your eyes.
