Hello,

I have order my new i7 system, and i got one of the GTX 285 cards.

Now I have been looking at lcds for the new computer but I am so confused I cant make my mind up.
I am looking for someone to help me pick one of these damn monitors :)  I haven't been able to choose for 3 days now.

My budget is around $250 max I don't really want to spend much more than that.
I will use this monitor for gaming and also I do a little web coding.

Here are a few I am been looking at.

LG W2353V-PF Black 23"

ASUS VW246H Black 24"

SAMSUNG 2343BWX High Glossy Black 23"

SAMSUNG 2233SW High Glossy Black 21.5"

ViewSonic VX2233wm Black 21.5"

ViewSonic X Series VX2433wm Black 23.6"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Does anyone have any opionions about Acer monitors?

Also re guarding these monitors if they are 16:9 does that mean games may appear stretched? since the monitor is formatted for wide screen movies?

Thanks to everyone who can help me,

Most games will play well with 16:9 resolutions sizes. From what I have seen and used the Acer monitors hold up quite nice and are a good quality monitor all around.
It might not have the best color and detail, but for around $120-180 you can't complain.
If color and detail is a concern, then I'd push my budget up $20-30 and look at the Samsung monitors.

I would go with the 23 inch samsung:

-even bigger resolution
-pretty design
