...on which monitor to get. I was wondering if everyone could post what they are currently using for gaming. I'm between the top models of the 22" and 24". Thanks.

I like 24" but it's generally easier to game on a 22" because of lower hardware requirements and I believe the panels tend to be faster.

I use a 24" Acer, but a 24" high end Dell would be even nicer. I love the resolution, and my computer is luckily powerful enough to play most games at 1920x1200

how is the response time on your 24 acer? do you notice tearing or ghosting on fps?

LOL

My 20in seems just perfect. :D

Really depends on a few things. For one, how close it will be to the user.

What he said. Don't go for a larger LCD unless you've got the hardware to run its native resolution.

i have 2 22in LCDs and personally i wish i had 24s, only because 24s have HDMI and other imputs and 22s generally dont

go with 24s IMO

get a high end 22 and you would have HDCP but no 1080p :(

That white behemoth is a rebranded Sony FW900 (the HP variant). Love it. Higher res than 24" LCD's, and HD looks simply amazing.

Got it for ~$250

I'm happy with my 20.1 WS. I sit only a couple of feet from the monitor so its perfect. 720P for my 360 is great. I may go 24" soon as the prices are dropping and my HW can run natively now without choking.

As much as I would LOVE to have that bad boy for myself its just not attractive to most people these days. Too big and and heavy. Evryone has a boner for overpriced LCD's that cant reproduce color as accurately as a quality CRT, nor look good at all resolutions.

Yep, same here. :thumbsup:

Me too, I have a 2407-HC with the well publicized ghosting issue that they are offering exchanges on. But I can only notice it when I use their special background and their special mouse moving technique, never seen it in games or anything else.
