Got my good new PC working but lost a moniter at the same time....
Just looking for a new moniter. The old one was a LG 19", it was getting old.
I would like to get a new one thats not to expensive any ideas?
I still want it to be good ofc, nothing too flash but a nice moniter at a good price.

What's your price range and ideal size? A really sweet monitor is the Samsung 245BW. (24" 1900x1200 - low latency) It's about $400+.

I've also heard good things about the Samsung 226BW (22" 1680x1050) for $320 at Newegg.

Questions that should be asked, though:
1) What do you use your system for?
2) What are the specs of the new system, in particular, the graphics card?

few weeks ago, i was lookin into buying a new LCD for gaming purposes and I checked all of samsungs and viewsonic
226bw is indeed prolly one of the best but i think 206bw might be a bit better (smaller pixels)
206bw is 20" tho and since i want to plug HDTV on it, i went for 2" bigger (226bw) ;)  ima use that with gf9 (when it comes out)

I bought a 22" Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor, and after rebates got it for UNDER $200 and love it so far. I do dual monitor with this, and my older Hyundai L90D+ 19" LCD.

I usually shop newegg, but found this on TigerDirect for a rocking deal.

All depends on how much you are willing to spend. If you're on a tight budget then stick with monitors with TN panels like the ones the others posters suggested. If you're willing to spend more try and get a P-MVA or S-IPS panels as they have much better image quality. I've had 3 lcd's with TN panels and when I got one with a P-MVA panel I was amazed by the difference in image quality, colors and viewing angles. If you have the money gor for quality !

Any specific suggestions for larger 24"+ monitors of this nature?
