Planning to buy a high end gaming computer soon (waiting for Sandybridge to come out).

I plan on using one monitor, prefer 24 inch. 1920x1200 native.

Dell UltraSharpTM U2410 listed as having 6 ms, but I never saw his performance up close.
Will he perform good in games or lots of ghosting will occur?
And how well this monitor performs in movies/graphics?

I will be using the monitor mainly for gaming, movies, internet some photo editing and graphics.

If you have some better recommendations please don't be shy :D 
Thanks.

I would recommend reading this article for a look at response time and other display concepts.

Many people report the U2410 being perfectly fine for gaming.

However, have you considered the Dell U2311H? It's 1" smaller, but has the same resolution and it's almost $200 cheaper.


It's resolution is 1920x1080 and U2410 is 1920x1200. So it's not just 1" smaller.
I really prefer having 1920x1200 res monitor.

Thanks for the link btw :)

Ah, you're right. I forgot that the U2410 is 1920x1200.

I have a (different) 24" 1920x1200 myself right now, but it seems like the market is going to 1920x1080. I'm not sure it's worth the additional premium for the 16:10 over the 16:9 ratio. $180 for an additional strip of 120 pixels is a pretty high price premium. :)

Well, if you leave the price out of the picture :) 
How about the quality?

It's an excellent quality montior. Dell seems to make sure to focus on good quality monitors (probably because it's the area of the computer you're looking at most).

It's also one of the top-recommended monitors for a gaming triple-monitor setup, as it can be used in portrait or landscape.
