23" Advice Needed - Samsung 2333sw vs. 2343bwx

I'm getting ready to build my wife a new PC (see I5 Build <$1,000 - Sanity Check), but am struggling with the monitor choice. I'd like to get her a 23" monitor which she will be using primarily for work (Office, etc.) and web browsing. I'd like to stay at around $200 (+/-$20) and prefer name brand. I use a Samsung 226bw (great monitor) and have been leaning towards getting another Samsung. Here are two monitors I've been considering:

SAMSUNG 2343BWX High Glossy Black 23" 5ms 16:9 Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 20000:1 (DC) w/ HDCP Support - Retail

SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 2333SW High Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 20000:1 (1000:1) w/ HPCP Support - Retail

I've read a lot of reviews, but I'm worried that the native resolution on the 2343bwx will display text and websites that are too small for everyday use. Any guidance on this particular issue would be appreciated, as would general comments and/or recommendations.

Thank you.

    They seem to have the same specs other than the resolution. If you're worried about the resolution making text too small, then your safe bet is the 2333SW. 1920x1080 is more than decent and will be able to run your full HD movies as well as any computer. Also, the 2333SW has wall-mounts if you plan to mount it up. The extra clear bezel puts a nice touch to it, too.
