Hi,

I want to get a new LCD monitor to replace my old 17" CRT one as well as help me enjoy my new build. I have very few options when it comes to available screens in my country. I need your help choosing between the following models available for me, all are Samsung:

Samsung E2020X 20-Inch (country price $169.50)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-E2020X-20-Inch-Performanc...

Samsung P2050 20-Inch (country price $179.50)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-P2050-20-Inch-Widescreen-...

Samsung P2070 20-Inch (country price $201.50)
http://www.amazon.com/SAMSUNG-P2070-20-Inch-LCD-Monitor...

Samsung P2250 22-Inch (country price $209.25)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-P2250-22-Inch-Widescreen-...

Samsung B2230H 22-Inch (country price $196.50)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-B2230H-widescreen-Monit...

Samsung B2330H 23-Inch (country price $216.50)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-B2330H-23-Inch-Widescreen...

I don't want to spend a lot on a screen but I do want the best bang for the buck so if the highly priced ones for example are not worth the price/performance ratio then I don't really want them but if their high cost justifies their performance difference then let me know. For instance, if the e2020x is adequate for gaming then I have no problem getting it or if HDMI offers better picture quality than DVI then I'll go for that instead.

I'll be using the screen for gaming and as a htpc too as well as web & graphic design so I guess color quality really matters as well. I'm also getting a HD 5770 for my pc soon.

Thanks

Spec wise and price wise, I think that you'd be getting the most bang for your buck with the B2230H.

is there anything that makes hdmi superior to dvi amongst these monitors? I am wondering whether I should take the $30 difference between the e2020x & b2230h and get a GTX 460 instead.
