I just looked at the black friday ads and noticed that the Acer AL2416WBsd was going to be for $250 at CompUSA.
On the other hand, the Westinghouse L2410NM is on Newegg for $350 after rebates.

The only positive difference i see between the two, is that the Westinghouse is non-TN panel while the Acer is TN. However, the Westinghouse doesn't have a DVI connection and it has speakers (i dont need). Adjustment wise, both are the same.

I need the monitor for hardcore gaming and everyday usage. My graphic card right now is 8800 GTS 640mb Superclock. I want to be able to play all games (except maybe crysis) on max/near max (with no/little AA/AF) at 1920x1200 on at LEAST 30 fps. Will i be able to this with a 24"? (i currently own a Sony 19" which is absolutetly amazing)

So for the price/performance which of the 2 monitors is better? (if the answer to my previous question is yes)

Well, I am in the same neighborhood as you man. I have my eyes set, and I mean set on the HP w2408. It looks truly amazing. I would be going from the Samsung s panle 226bw. You can hopefully find the hp one on amazon for 440 bucks. But, 22'' 226bw is the best in its class.

i just saw the Samsung 245bw for $330 at Circuit City, so i'm going to get that.

The HP w2408 is beautiful but not worth $200 more in my opinion. Considering that they both use TN panels.

Yes true, but I saw it on amazon for only 440. The thing also offers speaker, great for lan parties, and 4 usb ports. Either samsung or hp with be great.

I'd get the Westinghouse. I'm pretty sure you can get an HDMI to DVI cable so that shouldn't be an issue.
