Hi, I'm looking for a 24" monitor. I wil be used primarily for gaming. I would like to spend $200-250 on it.
I am currently looking at this one:
Samsung B2430H 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor $229.99
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-B2430H-24-Inch-Widescreen...

Is there a better monitor avaliable for this price?

Hey, I'm also looking for a gaming monitor!
I don't know if its necessarily better, but I'm currently at this forum looking for info on a Benq E2420HD. Check that one out, its 24", HD (1900x1080) has 2 x HDMI ports, inbuilt speakers (which are probably crap) and usb ports. great value for around $250

Reason I know about this - I want to buy it soon! unless someone convinces me otherwise.....

In fact, since its on topic:
Is my choice Benq E2420HD a good 24" monitor for gaming?
I have a i7 860 @ 2.8ghz, ATI 5770, 8Gig RAM etc etc

I currently have a Benq FP222W 22" and wanna upgrade, since i just got this computer
and i know i can now run HDMI/ High definition!

Also would appreciate an opinion on the Samsung too! :p

thanks for suggestion. it is cheaper, but doesnt have HDMI or speakers or extra goodies!
plus, i probably want to stick with Benq since i've been so happy with my current monitor, no dead pixels or problems at all!
i've heard a few bad things about Samsung LCDs :(
