First, my signature should contain my desktop build specifics. My video card is an EVGA 8800 GT with 512 GDDR3. I assumed that this card would suffice for what I want to do. Specifically, I want to be able to watch high quality video, and play "some" high quality games, like Bioshock, and possibly Crysis. I might invest in a Blu Ray drive, but that will be later down the road when I can afford to upgrade my graphics card too.
I have a few general guidelines that I want to follow. First, I will be using DVI as the connection. Second, it must be widescreen. Third, it must be 20" or more. Forth, I don't want to spend too much over $200 (I don't have a specific limit in mind, so I will spend more for quality, but I still have to be conservative as much as possible with the price). Lastly, my current monitor displays dark scenes a little too dark. So I need a screen that won't display too darkly.
I'm not entirely sure which aspects are more important than others, so I might need help with that. However, I have done a little bit of research, and have a few choices in mind. If you can come up with better choices, then feel free to do so.
My concern with the first is that Contrast Ratio will cause me to have certain scenes that are too dark. Other then that, it seems to have tons of good reviews.
The second one is probably my top choice right now. However, it does not come with a DVI cable, which is a small inconvience. Also, there is a new model, X22HG-Naga, which seems to be the same exact thing, just without the audio. So what makes the Naga more expensive? Also, reading some reviews about the 20" model makes it seem like Sceptre has a decent problem with dead monitors.
