The sup-category made no since to me but i need a 1920 x 1200 monitor I would go with a 2560 x 1600 but I can't find any for less then 1000$, so im looking for a 1920 x 1200 for up to about 250$ cheaper is better! unless it sucks...

It's really a matter of personal preference. You should really visit a computer store and LOOK at the various monitors they have to SEE what you are getting - in terms of pixel size, clarity, and spacing. I just bought a 27" sceptre from newegg for about $290, which I like very much, but your visual preference may be different. You may have difficulty finding 1920 x 1200, most monitors from 24"-27" are 1920 x 1080.

Sounds like a nice monitor but, 25" is a little big, anything else you have in mind, and that comes with a DVI perhaps?

That does have DVI (I'm quite sure), but I would get one of the cheap Hanns-G's then, the only problem is the built-in audio is horrible.

The first one is even more expensive than the one I showed and the second is 1920x1080.

He said he needs 1920x1200.
For graphic designers and modelers the extra 120 pixels is huge.
For your first monitor OP specifically asked for a DVI input, it only has HDMI and VGA.

People like you make the internet look good and I do think that niklas helped me by showing both of the monitors, the 1920 x 1200 is great now I'm just wondering if LED is better than LCD?

That's a LED LCD display, the LED doesn't replace the LCD, it's the backlight.
Most LCD displays use a cold cathode (CCFL) as the backlight, LED's mostly allow for thinner displays, though the uniformity and overall display is subtly better.
Where LED's have the real advantage is RGB LED LCDs (I know, long) where they have 3 LED's, Red, Green, Blue, and it allows for amazing Contract, black levels, gamma, etc.

And thank you for the compliment.

Sorry for the incorrectly formatted question I knew that LED is the backlight for LCD I was just wondering if it had a better picture as you have just told me it does, so thank you for the advice.

EDIT: I might go with the 1080P one just because I don't want to have to convert a DVI to HDMI everytime I setup
