I have a previous 22" Samsung monitor that I use for gaming and I love it.

I think you'll be well served if you get that one. I've always found Samsung to be high quality when it comes to monitors/TVs.

Usually those customer choice award winners are good choices.

Good luck. Enjoy your new monitor.

Samsung in general makes a good monitor. I would not have any reservations about buying one of their PC monitors. Just make sure you get the best price possible, at a good resolution.

That SAMSUNG 2253BW looks like a good gaming monitor with its 2ms response time. And 8000:1 contrast ratio isnt' to bad.

The T220 suggested above, is pretty sweet looking with its 20,000:1 contrast ratio. That thing should have some stunning black/whites & colors. It also has the same 2ms response time.

Considering the prices are pretty close on, I'd go for the T220.

Depending on your budget:
Samsung T220HD (Has HDMI, 1080p HD Tuner built in).

Little more expensive, and has a 5ms response time instead of 2ms, and 10,000:1 contrast. But you'd have the HDMI and 1080p option. :)
