I'm currently looking for a LCD monitor that fits my needs as an active computer user, the main things I use my computer for are:
1.) Games - I play a lot of them, usually RPG, but also FPS and RTS games.
2.) Browsing the Internet - Lots of text, images, and even video. I do this very often.
3.) Communication - Between the forums and messaging programs, I see text quite a bit.
4.) Video - I like to watch movies and play high quality videos, not nearly as much as I game, but I'd still like to have a monitor with high capability to play such videos.
I would like a monitor with the ability to do all of these well, but my main focus is gaming.
I use the following for HDTV and as my computer monitor.. it is absolutely awesome.. you do need a high powered VC for your PCF to get max benefit.
