Hey guys, I've been poking around here and there trying to learn everything that I possibly can about monitors. I definitely want to be able to get a good one when I buy one so that I will have the best experience possible. My friend right now who I just built a new computer for is now looking for something bigger than his 17" CRT monitor. He received an ad in the email from TigerDirect promoting a Soyo 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor: 5ms Response, 1680x1050 (Max resolution I'm assuming?), 1000:1 Contrast (better than some I have seen). I can't find anything about the brightness. I've also been shopping on Newegg a lot, and a lot of the stock brightness options I see is 300cda (is that correct?)... I'm not sure if that brings out the best quality or not. My questions: 1) Price is definitely an issue here on this one. He doesn't want a $400 monitor. What is the closest 22" monitor you can get best bang for the buck? 2) I'm not sure if I have heard correctly, but have there been issues with games and 22" monitors? I thought I heard something about anything between 20" and 24" is bad... but I can't recall. 3) How do games do with Widescreen monitors? Any recommendations that we can look up on Newegg? Am I asking the right questions to try and get him the best? Please, any other information you need, please let me know!
