Anyway, i'm looking to buy a new GFX card and I was wondering about different monitors that have high resolution. Basically I want to play games in HD but I know some monitors suck and some are good. I was just wondering you guys' opinions on good monitors, I actually dont know a whole lot about them but I know I want one thats at least 20in and widescreen that doesn't have a lot of glare on the screen. As for budget, well, I don't know how much a good HD monitor costs so I cant say how much it would be? 200-300USD maybe?
Anyway, I'm really just wondering about different monitors yall might have and really like, so on and so fourth.

There is a display section, but its dead over there. :p 

So you want to get a full HD monitor.

Anything that is nativly 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 will suite you best.

ASUS, Acer, Samsung and Dell all make great monitors.

For a gaming monitor, I'd get a 560 Ti (900 MHz version) which is 95% as fast in single card configuration (99% in SLI), and invest the $115 ya save in a 120 Mhz monitor. The 900 MHz factory OC'd versions have robust power circuits and bigger / better coolers. The 570's VRM is not as robust and can be fried if you exceed manufacturer's voltage limits.

I'd look for an IPS panel if the goal is Photoshop. Dell U2410 is usual;ly considered the entry point at $500ish but there;'s a new boy on the block at $210

IPS panels are an expensive luxury and are by no means necesary for normal computing or gaming. The best value in screens is in the 22-24" range at 1980x1080. Asus, Acer, LG and Samsung all make nice screens that can be found for much less that 200 bucks.

What is so special about a "IPS" monitor?

"(IPS) (In-Plane Switching) An active matrix LCD (TFT LCD) technology developed by Hitachi in the mid-1990s that provides a greater viewing angle and better color reproduction. With subsequent versions branded as "Super TFT," "Super-IPS" (S-IPS), "Advanced Super-IPS," "Enhanced S-IPS" and so on, the IPS liquid crystal molecules become parallel to the front and back panels rather than perpendicular to them when a voltage is applied. Unlike twisted nematic (TN) LCDs, which have electrodes at top and bottom panels, IPS uses an electrode pair at the bottom panel. The extra transistor on the bottom panel blocks more surface and requires a brighter backlight."

Basically an IPS panel provides better colors and black levels. $210 is a very reasonable price, the ones that are in the 400-500 dollar range on not at all reasonable for the average consumer.

I see, so basically a $210 ISP monitor is better than say... a $210 'regular' monitor that runs the same resolution?

dell is good but had some issues with the display , I would go for the Asus or the Benq version of 1920 x 1200 much better for gaming ... Don't forget IPS ...

But As the 560 perfoms its A good Card , and does Sly pretty well ...

But thats the strong debate is it worth paying extra for more Fps ...

Well the Answer Is yours ....
