    Ok... so I'm awaiting my new 2.8 Quad + 8800GT, and I'm looking for a nice glossy widescreen monitor for gaming, both in OS X and XP.

    So far, I've come up with the HP W2207 @ about $320 from Best Buy...

    5ms... 1680x1050 1000:1 Contrast... anyone have any better thoughts?

    :)

    Gateway FHD2400

    I have the gateway FHD2400. It is 24" widescreen glossy monitor. Lots of input and looks gorgeous.

    I will second your suggestion of the HP. Great, great monitor.


    But if anything, do NOT get an ACD. Outdated rip-off and don't let anyone else convince you otherwise (better panel vs. tn; amongst other jibberish).

    Yeah, and you don't get to see your own reflection because of that annoying anti-glare stuff.

    :cool:

    Good point, though I don't understand the whole idea about buying an expensive computer and then going cheap on the display :confused:

    You are going to be looking at it every day and probably for many hours.

    Hello,

    I've just taken delivery of a BenQ FP241WZ and I have to say that it is one sweet monitor!

    cheers,

    do nay of these monitors actually have glass on the outside, like the new imacs do? I would think this would make cleaning the LCD any easier. I don't see any info about on the Samsung or Gateway pages.

    If you're going to spend that kind of money on a Mac Pro, you should go the distance and complete the look with an Apple Cinema Display. Anything else is like fuzzy dice in a BMW.

    I sold off all my old PC junk, some old coins, a guitar/amp and some old Zippos on eBay and got enough cash to get a 30". Now all I have to do is order my beamer, I mean Mac Pro!
