Hi,

I'm planning on putting together a new build with one of the requirements being the need for a monitor. LCDs have drastically come down in price compared to what they were years ago ... they've also seemed to improve quite a bit in performance & quality.
I've never made a purchase for an LCD, and so I have very linear knowledge when it comes to making such a selection. I browsed Newegg's inventory of 17" LCD monitors (res. 1280 x 1024) and narrowed down three finalists. I was hoping I could get some opinions. I know there's a forum more specific to my needs here, but it receives far less attention.

Anyway, the three finalists are:
- NEC Display Solutions 70GX2 Silver 17" 4ms LCD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682...

- ViewSonic VP720b Black 17" 4ms LCD Monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682...

- SAMSUNG 740BX Black 17" 5ms LCD Monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682...


I plan to put the LCD through fast-paced gaming, photoshop and other imaging applications, some video editing software, and probably an occasional DVD.

Thank you!
