I have an hp LCD monitor, when I play unreal 04 on 1280 - 1024 it runs about 75 fps avrage...

But the problem is its to small, its a 17" and i hate looking at such a small screen.

I would like to upgrade to something bigger atleast a 19" but i dont know what lcd monitor will work for games...

any suggestions

dude i got a 4 yr old LCD. Hitachi CML 174. thing runs games insane.

I wouldn't be able to Imagine Any 700$+ monitor wouldn't be able to run games.

Dell's coming out with an HD LCD, i got the 2005FPW and wow, i was impressed. I was weary cuz of dead-pixels, none whatsoever, just hooked up the DVI to my 7800GT, and oh my god, it's so incredible, HUGE screen. the resolution is 1680x1050, there is DEFINATELY no turning back to anything smaller. Quake IV is incredible, Lords of Dogtown and other DVD's are stunning, i totally recommend it.

You can wait for the HD version of the 2005FPW, i couldn't though, hehe... i was in the same boat as you trying to decide what to get. i've heard such great reviews about the Dell i couldn't pass it up. it was $520, but its truly a Best Buy. excellent for Games and DVD's. it has 12ms i believe, but i don't see anything wrong with games thus far. this competes with the $700 or $800 Apple 20"

i wanted a good all-around LCD, 4ms and 8ms are good for games. but i wanted an LCD that was good for EVERYTHING, not JUST games. this 12ms LCD is excellent, totally recommend it.

I got a Dell 2001FP (20.1", 1600x1200) on sale from Dell's website for $502....will be hard to find an equal quality 20.1" for that price from any other maker!

(I also have an E196 , or was it E193? from Dell on my other rig (19", analog input, 1280x1024) for $265 that is outstanding for the money spent....bright,no ghosting!)

I actually have the Samsung 172x and the Dell 2405 and both do a decent job. Of course when playing at 1920x1200 you have to scale the textures and such back just a liiiitle bit to run smooth. Great monitor though. The 172x is where it's at though. Absolutely no ghosting no matter what.

The Dell 2405fpw runs HD. One of the first things I checked out with mine was a HD videoclip and it's definitely amazing!

Really is. That was the first thing I did when it arrived at my house in the monster box.

shit...maybe i should return the 2005 and get that since it's got HD built in...

has quite the lot built in too... composite, dvi, component, svideo, vga, usb hub, card reader, it's quite the nice monitor/tv :p

Belive It Or Not, But The Best Gaming Display Ive Ever Used (And I Own) Is The SGI 1600SW, Its Has A Super Tight Dot Pitch (Rivaling The Best CRT's And I Havent Found A Another LCD With One That Fine) Of .23mm!!, Its Rated For 40ms (Dont Let That Fool You Its As Smooth If Not Smoother Than Most 16ms Displays Ive Used/Owned) And Due To The 17.4" Wide-Screen Format It Has About The Same Viewable Area (Square) As A 18" LCD (Or A 19" CRT), And Has THE BEST Scaling Ive Ever Seen, It Scales Smooth (No Jaggies Or Lost Details) Clear Down To 800x600!!, And Is Has The Color Accuracy Of Most High-End CRTs , And Is Even 720P HDTV Compatible. But Sadly Its Been Discontinued Since Late 2002 :(  , But Quality Outweighs Qquantity :D

For me the best for gaming is the View Sonic VX922.
Here

I looked at the dells before I bought mine and this one just seemed better and now I believe it is. Rated at 2ms response time.

So far View Sonic is the best. They have a LCD monitor with 3ms. :twisted:

Yeah Viewsonic And Dell Do Make Nice LCD Monitors But For Me Its My Good Old Silicon Graphics (SGI) 1600SW (SW Means Super-Wide) All Others Look Too Grainy (I Cant Stand The "Screen Door" Effect) And I Like My Color Accuracy With Most Other LCDs The Colors Are All Off
