What's the difference between these two LCD's??

What's the difference between

Acer AL2216Wbd

and

Acer AL2223Wd

Which one would be better for FPS games? Going to use a 8800gts card with it. Or is there different widescreen panels in this price range you would recommend?

Thanks!

More about what difference
  1. Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" has HDCP. This will allow you to play HD-DVD or Bluray, even other HD formats that employ the stupid HDCP. It is simply a method of futureproofing. Personally I recommend getting the Samsung 226BW, but I dont know your budget.

    Anyway, to reiterate, get the one with HDCP compatability so that when you have an HDCP supporting VGA card you will not go on a raging rampage because the max res you can play your HD DVD is 640-480.

    Go for a moniter with HDCP support.

    Yeah, I really don't know what my budget is either. It started as sub $1000 system that is now just barely sub $1500. $50 here and $100 there...and woops, I'm a little over what my original idea was.
  3. tell me about it. I'm having a hard time keeping it under 3,000! First it was just one hd, now its a raptor, now i want to get the 1tb from hitachi. Sigh, its so hard to buy a pc because there is always something major just on the cusp of coming out. I'd have bought it already but the stupid r600 delays keep me waiting, now intel is dropping its price, then barcelona comes out and so on....
