Which monitor should I get?

I don't know a whole lot about monitors, so I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get. I'm mostly getting this for gaming, and my computer specs are: Q6600, 3Gb RAM, MSI OC'd 8800GT. I currently have a 15" Gateway LCD (with a whopping 25ms response time), so pretty much ANYTHING will be an upgrade for me.

Here are my options:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

As you can see, I'm mostly concerned about the price. I obviously want a product worth buying, however, and both of these monitors get pretty good reviews. The problem is that they both have the same maximum resolution (1680x1050) despite being such different sizes. This leads me to believe that the 19" monitor will look much sharper since the pixels would have to be smaller to display the same resolution as the 22". But then again, bigger is usually better, and the 22" is only $50 more!

Are there any other details that I should consider?

No more free shipping on the 19" and the 22" went up $20... =[

I guess I'll just buy whichever one drops in price first...
