I've done my research on knowing what to look for when buying a gaming monitor, the problem is I can't seem to find any good ones. I've looked on Newegg, Amazon, Ebay, and I've even searched the forums here, but most of what I found here is a little dated. Perhaps the community here can help me out, here is what I'm looking for.

1. 6ms or lower response time
2. 1900x1200 resolution
3. 400 cd
4. 120 HZ refresh rate

I am trying to keep it around the 300-350 dollar price range, but will go higher if I have to. I'm not sure if I'm being too picky, but I believe my specifications are realistic, I will be using this monitor for gaming.

Thank you for your suggestions and your help ahead of time.

#2 & #4 are mutually exclusive.

Meaning 120Hz monitors only go up to 1920 x 1080 resolution due to bandwidth issues.

I believe 3D monitors start at $350 and goes up from there...

400 cd is rather high for most monitors, but they are out there. 300 cd is more common.



The following seems to fit what you are looking for:
