I am currently looking for a good monitor for gaming. ( I don't know if for gaming it has to have a lower Response time or Contrast ratio or whatever)

I honestly have almost no clue on what to look for in a monitor, except that a lower response time is better. My current budget for the monitor is $200-250 range. I don't mind the the what the size is, as long as it is more than 17in. I have been using this Dell 17in Monitor for about 3 years now.

Well, I have been looking at these 3
But I will defiantly consider your suggestion.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E16824236049,N82E16824001317,N82E16824001314

Please tell me if either of those are good choices.


Also, Maybe you can shed some light on this for me.

This website said that the max resolution for my 250gts is:
Resolutions:

* 1024x768
* 1280x1024
* 1680x1050
While EVGA Website said that my max resolution is:
Resolution & Refresh
240Hz Max Refresh Rate
2048x1536 Max Analog
2560x1600 Max Digital

Any of the units you linked to should be fine. I've never used any Acer's but I hear good things about them.

Could anyone also tell me the difference between 16:10 aspect ratio and 16:9?

In a few reviews I have been seeing that, and I have no clue what the difference is. I know that HD Videos use a 16:9 aspect ratio, but what uses a 16:10? And what are the benefits?

I have no idea what it is used for but it won't be a concern with a widescreen LCD.
