So for the past week and half Iíve been looking at lcd monitors. I thought I wanted to get a 22inch but after many years of using the cheapest crtís and then finally a cheapy 17in lcd from gateway I decided to bump it up to the 24. Iím having a really hard time deciding which one to get because everywhere I look I read mixed reviews. Iím going to MAINLY use it for gaming (and web surfing), and itís pretty intensive gaming at that. Iím a real big graphics junkie so having an excellent quality picture is important to me. Iíve pretty much narrowed it down to these two (although feel free to post some of your own suggestions)
The first one is the Acer AL2416WD which is priced at $555.00 (shipping included) :http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?...p=C&topnav=
Second a dell 2407WFP which is 640 (before shipping) with a 4 year advanced warranty.http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/product...mp;sku=320-4335
Now the specs on both of the mointors look the same to me but I hear that dell is a great company and there warranty is also great so thats why its more expensive and i'm sorta leaning towards them. My only fear is that I hear a lot about ghosting and frame skipping in intensive action paced games from these types of lcds.
I wanted to stay in the 500-600 range so if anyone has more suggestions go ahead and post them.
One question thought, it says these monitors are HDCP compliant, what does that mean?
If anyone wants to know what kinda system i'm gonna be hookin it up to its a:
Gateway 550 gr
Intel augsburg mobo
2 gigs ram
Thanks in advance and sorry for makin it so long!
