  1. I need some recomendations on getting the best gaming monitor in the150-200$ price range. I really don't know anything about monitors, if you can give me the basics on what to look for I can do some of my own hunting. Also Id appreciate any links to monitors in this price range you peeps recomend.

    not sure about price range, but i'd be looking for:
    19" widescreen tft
    Resolution: 1440 x 900 (very minimum native)
    Refresh rate of <8ms
    DVI input

    Here is a link to a bunch of LCD monitors in roughly your price range: Newegg. I have 19" non-widescreen LCD monitors from Sceptre, BenQ and Acer. All perform about the same except the color from the BenQ does not seem quite as saturated as the others but I haven't spent any time tweaking the color settings. It's very subtle. I also bought a 17" CMV (Chimei) LCD for my father which has performed well. I bought all of them from Newegg and none had any bad pixels.
