A few thoughts:

1, Dell had these for $999 a few weeks ago, wait for lower prices.
Check the various deal sites for coupons, %off, etc..

2. Make sure you video card can handle it

3. Depending on your application 2 monitors (dualview) might work.
1905FPs were under $300, so two would be under $600


I'm not in the market for one of these,
but at $700-750 I might be, not $1200

i don't own one but this LCD this is no 1 on my list of things i want to
waste money on ;) 

i've heard nothing but great reviews about the monitor itself... better
than apple's range even, but some who are used to working with CRTs in a
dark room/studio environment say it can be a little bright.

be aware that 1920x1200 is a very high resolution so i think u'd want at
least a 6800GT to push the 2.3 million pixels around... that's just a
guess though, i have a 6600GT, not sure how well it would do in gaming
at that res, if i go over 1280x1024 in modern 3D games the frame rate
starts to choke. SLI is not an option with DVI widescreen yet,
apparently there is a major display glitch nVidia is aware of but hasn't
fixed yet.
