    I have a 24" LED ACD as my main display but since I have a gt120 card and the 4870, I can add 2 more monitors. I'm looking for 2 cheap monitors to add to the left and right side of the 24" LED ACD... any suggestions?

    I was looking at the dell 2409 and occasionally its on sale at dell.com for $199 off and on.. are these any good? Currently the price is back to $219 but it'll drop again to $199.

    NEC EA2321WMi is a good choice. ~$370 Provantage

    A bit cheaper is the Samsung F2380. ~$240 from Buy.com

    I would read reviews on these monitors before buying them, though. Just FYI, there might be some issues.

    Color uniformity on NEC. Scroll around.

    ToastyX on F2380

    And I would look at the recommendations on The LCD Thread on AnandTech as well.

    Dunno about the Dells, hence my above suggestions.

    Get the dells, they are exactly what you have asked for. Call dell and ask for the price you saw, they will probably match it. I have three and like them.

    If you can live with a 22'', I recommend the Dell 2209WA.

    I have two Dell 2208WFPs and one 2409WB all hooked to my MP and love them! Not the absolute best contrast ratio or fastest response time but you can't beat the quality for the price, plus HDMI, DVI, VGA, and USB(on the 2208s) all in one.
