    The Dell 2209WA is the best monitor in that size/price range by far, and it can be had for a little over $200. You might need a HDMI or DVI switch, though, since it only has one DVI input.

    To connect your MBP and PS3, I'd suggest this combo:

    Code:
    MDP->HDMI--->|HDMI Switch|
    PS3--------->|...........|--------->HDMI->DVI adapter->Monitor
