    With ur computer 22" /1680x1050 is too much. LCD is good only with native resolution. I woud get 19" CRT =)

    Is ASUS a good brand for a monitor? I'm learning towards the 28'' hanns - g, but I'm open to everything!

    Go for it, any larger size and your graphics card will start lagging really badly due to the resolution.

    I'd suggest a system overhaul before the monitor upgrade.

    With my current specs, my Radeon HD 3650 can't even play Left4Dead at optimal speed. (Sometimes dips below 60fps at 1440x900)

    My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM.

    25.5" is too much for me imo. Would rather 20-22" should be suffice for my future build.

    I do not plan to use my current system of course it will slow down compare to my current monitor CRT 17" using 1024x768 every games except WoW in 1280x960 (1024x768 looks awful in WoW). Desktop is 1280x960.

    I plan to use this new monitor with my future build:

    Intel Core i7 920 (Possible Overclock to match the 965 one)
    GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R-SLI
    XFX GeForce GTX 260 Core 216
    CORSAIR 750W
    OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) (Triple Channel Kit)
    WD 640GB SATA

    EDIT: Can you recommend me 20 or 22" Asus LCD Monitor? Like here:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236058 (20")
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236050 (22")

    Another question, what is GTG? As said on 22" page "2ms(GTG)".

    Thanks,
    Exor

    Alright that build spec is much better.

    I recommend the latter.

    As for GTG, it means grey to grey, so if you have images that are white, black or grey, it'll take the monitor 2ms to respond. For colour images, it'll take 5ms for the response time.

    i don't like asus monitor that much... i would even say don't go for asus.... still i think since you are going for a 22" this article would help you out... then you decide what are you going for color?? or quick response time...

    I don't know if I can fully trust BenQ since my cousin has one and the family haven't bought another BenQ monitor ever since, they all went either LG or Samsung (I would've got an ASUS if I knew that they sold ASUS monitors in Canada).

    I recently purchased the ASUS monitor in question (VW224U), I'm not going to tell you it's the greatest LCD out there because it's isn't but for the price it's a decent monitor. I play some FPS, as well as RPG's and I have not seen any ghosting. Colors will need a little adjusting but don't look bad.

    Thanks for the explanation about the GTG.

    I am still thinking 20" or 22" can anyone suggest a better size for gaming? It's hard for me to decide cuz they cost very close and good price for my budget.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236058 (20" Max: 1600x900)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236050 (22" Max: 1680x1050)

    Also can someone tell me which is the most common resolution for gaming 1600x900 or 1680x1050?

    I'd go for the 22" option.

    Most games will support both resolutions, but its much more likely that its 1440x900 rather than 1600. I know most, if not all, games launched in the last couple years support 1680x1050. That extra little bit of space is really useful, not just for games but when doing all the other tasks on the pc.

    Don't forget to check each manufacturers' policy on dead/stuck pixels. You can get shafted pretty hard if you get a "dud."

    Generally, the contrast ratio of a monitor that says 50000:1 is the dynamic contrast.. which means it is only that high a small fraction of the time. Most monitors nowadays are 1000:1 as their static contrast, with a dynamic ranging from 5000:1 up to 50000:1 and higher.

    If its an LG, odds are its dynamic. Most manufacturers don't want to specify what it is, so they just list the dynamic contrast and label it as "contrast ratio." Nearly every LCD has a static contrast of 1000:1, at least every LCD computer monitor. Sony TVs, they've improved to a 4000:1 static, and they even tell you that. But not every manufacturer will be so forward with it, they just want to have the highest contrast ratio and label it as a feature.. when in reality the monitor only hits that high contrast very rarely.
