    19inch "Gaming" LCD

    Hi all,

    I am looking into finally making the change from CRT to LCD. I do play a lot of games and I think that is the reason I have not ventured into the LCD world yet because of all the "ghosting" you read about in FPS games and TV/DVD playback.

    Is there such a thing as a gamers LCD? I know some others have posted on here raving about the ViewSonic VX922. Would this be something you would call a gamers LCD that does not ghost?

    What about some other makes/models in the 19inch flavor I should look at that you would consider great for FPS gaming?

    TIA.

    The Viewsonic is a good one, also look at Samsung too.

    Both have the top rated LCDs on the market so you can't go wrong with either.

    I have an Old Samsung 191T and I have never noticed any ghosting while playing any game and it is a 20ms Response time Monitor.

    The VX922 is probably the best it can get for the time being... I wouldn't take chances and get that VX922 for sure.

    i saw the 924 at compusa, it was by far the best panel of the bunch. so bright, so crisp, just typical viewsonic. im aching for them to make a widescreen 922 or 924 model.

    Ever thought about going widescreen? The VA1912W is very good and cheap. I play counterstrike on it with full detail and it works like a charm. I went from crt to TFT widescreen and I don't know if I could go back to a normal monitor now...

    Well I guess I have narrowed it down to THESE TWO by Viewsonic and THESE TWO by Samsung. Anyone have any more input on these or other models? Also would not mind some more input on wide-screen gaming.

    What games do you play? I've played quite a few games now and widescreen is so nice

    Also watched a couple of divx films on there, I didn't realise they were widescreen so they fill up the whole screen, looks really nice.

    I was going through the same thing as you are a couple of weeks ago and ended up going widescreen (was also thinking about the samsung 940mw as well!) but decided on this one due to price and the feedback I've seen about it and have definitely not regretted it.

    might wanna take a look at the one in my sig! Good price and excellent for gaming. This was in Maximum PC a few months ago and was up against much higher priced models. Mine came in at #3! I would highly recommend it!

    I play FPS games mainly but some RTS and racing games here and there. My biggest worry about getting the WS is reading that some games to not support WS resolutions and look bad on a WS monitor when you are not using the entire screen.

    The VX922 seems to be a favorite here.

    I would recommend you try and see them in person before choosing one if there are any stores in your area.

    Would you still go with the VX922?

    I sort of got side tracked on this and have not even looked at the LCDs lately and see that the VX922 had dropped almost $100 in price. Is there a reason for this? Have better LCD and/or a new technology that has been released caused the price drop?

    TIA.

    it seemed to drop about 50 on newegg. they had them listed at 320 for awhile.

    i think it was viewsonic's new 8ms widescreen lcd. might be something to consider, i would for be leaning toward that instead of the 922. the 922 should be a better picture, but widescreen is widescreen, aint no replacing it

    Is THIS the Viewsonic WS you are talking about?

    I really do not have a preference (4:3 or WS). I just want to get something that will give me the least chance of problems with games (ghosting and compatibility).

    That right there is a compatibility issue which I do not want.

    I guess I will go with the VX922.
