    Hey all. I'm looking to place an order tomorrow here locally (Not ordering online) for a new monitor and I'm trying to grab the best one I can for under $700 Canadian.

    I've had several widescreen gaming monitors and the response time was just not good as they ghosted irritatingly in games (Which would be the primary use). Drove me nuts, so now I'm looking for pretty dang much any kick-butt LCD (19' or above) that fits the budget. Any reccomendations would be EXTREMELY welcome!

    Thanks!

    Well if you are buying locally, recommendations depend on what you have for local store choices?

    Obviously Dell monitors are out, which are pretty good quality IMO.

    Thread title changed.

    20" - Dell 2007FPW (Widescreen LCD)
    24" - Dell 2405FPW (Widescreen LCD)

    Those are the best in my opinion.

    Dell 2407FPW is even better as it gives HDCP support ;)
