I was searching for something similair. Went for the Samsung S23A750D 3D 23'' monitor.

Why?
- Latest Generation
- Low input lag
- 120hz
- 3D also on Ati
- Solid design

If I were you'd, I would at least pick a monitor with the right 3D options for the video card you have. You might not think you'll like 3D gaming, but after using it, you will probably change your mind.

I was like you when I chose my 120hz monitor. After using 3D, I almost never play a game without it.

In that case, I'd recommend looking for a 120hz monitor that is Nvidia 3D vision certified. There is no reason to limit yourself from that option if the cost is similar. I personally bought my monitor thinking I'd primarily game at 120hz, instead I almost exclusively game in 3D.

This one for sure is in your budget.


That will not work. That will not allow you to play at 1080p and 120hz. Without a dual-link DVI connection, or displayport, it won't allow you to go beyond 720p at 120hz.

from wikipedia on hdmi
"HDMI 1.4a has defined mandatory 3D formats for broadcast, game, and movie content.[123] HDMI 1.4a requires that 3D displays support the frame packing 3D format at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24, side-by-side horizontal at either 1080i50 or 1080i60, and top-and-bottom at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24.[124]"
so while you can use hdmi for 3d bluray and stuff, you won't be able use it at real 1080@120Hz that pc gamers would be interested in...

That looks like a decent choice, but I have to wonder about something under the details. It might just be a typo, but it wrote this:

Vertical Refresh Rate
Analog: 50 - 122 Hz
Digital: 50 - 85 Hz

Maybe Analog is fine. It's 3D vision certified without the kit, which means if you don't actually plan to use it, you aren't paying for it.

weird...

though the customer feedback at newegg tells it works @120 with dual-link dvi as would be expected.


It probably just means you need to make sure to get the Analog DVI dual-link cable.

umm, dual-link is for digital signals only, the analog part of DVI-I is the same as standard vga (d-sub 15).

edit if it is using the vga signal to get 120Hz, then a single-link dvi-i cable or even a dvi-a cable would work as well... it can't be like that, can it?

edit2 it specifically states that the monitor has DVI-D input, so it has no analog signals in that what so ever...
