    My current 10 inch Trinitron that dies every time I alt tab between full screen games and mIRC isn't cutting it. So, what do you think of this:

    Viewsonic VG900b-S 19" TFT

    Or if you know of any other good monitors that arent too expensive (Keep it under $300 <3) then post them here. Really appreciate the help.


    Thank you.:)

    25ms is horrible. You will not find a 19" LCD for under $300 that is even remotely decent at games.

    Kay...forgive me I am a hybrid of a gamer, yet know nothing of monitors.

    What would be your suggestion for a monitor for gaming specifically under $300?

    Nothing is neccessarily wrong with it... but it's more money than the BenQ, and the BenQ is better.

    That BenQ is probably a good choice if you really want an LCD. If you're not tied to the idea of having an LCD, you can get a damn nice 19" CRT (maybe even bigger) for $300 US.

    a few weeks ago dell was selling the 1905fp for like $260 something with coupons. It has 20ms response time. I haven't noticed any ghosting, but I haven't played any games on it yet. $280 seems kinda high for a 17"
