I'm trying to put the final pieces of the puzzle together for a new build I plan on creating in mid-January after the release of the new Sandy Bridge CPUs. My build will include a GTX 570 and probably the i2500-k. The purpose will be primarily for gaming. I am currently using a dell 20" monitor I bought back in 2005. I need some help selecting a new monitor in the 23-24" range, and have come up with some options (I'd like to spend < $300 US). I'd prefer to stay in 16:9 res given that most games are headed back to 1920x1080 native res anyhow.
I am also open to HP, Viewsonic, Acer, and Asus products, and if there is a value monitor that has good quality I'd love to go up to 27", although I'm not sure that's necessary/realistic. Any feedback here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.
