  1. Im thinknig of getting an lcd monitor, a 19" widescreen but i dont know to much about these

    im thinkig ill need to get one with less then a 5ms responce time and scan support a 1600x 1240 resiloution

    now what im wondernig is if i need dvi output or not

    im using an x800gt that i hope will hold me over till dx 10 or i can get a n x1800xt when they drop a little more in price

    now i want this to last for atlest 4 years and it needs to be under $210


    thanks for reading this
    any suggestions for me

    You don't need it but it will help with response times because there is no analog to digital conversion. Either way you hook it up will work.

    what i mean is will dvi be required for the futre cards to support higher resiloution

    thanks for the reply

    Well if you want it to last long into vista, you need to get one with a hd tuner in. There aren't many on the market. Currently Gateway has the best one out and it is also the best monitor for gamming.
