This is similar to a previous post, but rather then looking for a bargain, I'm looking for performance. I've been using run down CRTs that were phased out from my office for years, and the painful blurriness has finally gotten the best of me.
Rather then doin this half-way, I'm planning on going all out...almost. I'm willing to spend up to $500.00 before taxes on this baby, but I want to make sure I do this right with such a pricetag.
Firstly...Widescreen or Standard? More and more, retailers are pushing the widescreens, but how much grief will this cause in the long run. I like the idea of having a widescreen, but if it's gonna interfere with future gaming, I'd rather have a standard monitor.
Second, size does matter...hehe. I want nothing smaller then 20", but nothing drastic like a 26"...I am afterall, sitting right in front of the thing. I see that 20" (20.1 sometimes) & 22" seem to be the standards. Is there one I should aim towards? Size does matter, but not at the cost of quality. I want perfection.
Third...Brand names...I know the big names...Viewsonic, LG, etc. A lot of the referals I see on forums though tend to push names that are a little less known to me. What should I look for companywise, or should I ignore the titles and just at specs.
4th. Specifics. If you know the monitor for me, PLZ TELL ME! hehe. The more precise the info I can get, the happier I'll be. At least I wouldn't be beating myself up about it...just someone I've never met (i.e. you!)...lol
Plz help, this noob doesn't wanna regret his purchase!
