    i somehow prefer LG because of the lower price. anyway, when choosing LCD take a look at their brightness (cd/m, higher means brighter white), contrast ratio (X:1, higher means vivid colour) and response rate (ms, lower is better). if youre buying offline, then u can take a look at the sample units.

    im not a graphic person so i dont really know much about LCD things, but at least those specs make a difference...

    anything less than a 30" monitor for dual GTX 295's means you wasted your money on a superfluous 295.

    given your budget, and that 30" monitors are 1k+, have you considered a dual monitor setup?
