    Best 19in monitor for Prog/Graphics/Games?

    I'm looking for a decent 19in monitor (without going into the stratosphere on price but I'll pay extra for quality) that will be great for programming/graphics/gaming (as well as video capture). I've been looking around and from what I can see, I've got a choice of 3: Iiyama VisionMaster Pro 450 (bit dated but good picture quality through Diamondtron use - however, no USB ports), Mitsubishi Diamondscan Pro 900u (great all round and USB & Diamondtron) and Nokia 446Xpro (good picture and aesthetically pleasing design and controls + USB but no Diamondtron).

    On this basis, I'd choose the Mitsubishi but what does anyone else think? Is this a great monitor? Is there a better alternative for a similar price? Can anyone recommend a good
    video capture solution (either single combo card or card add-on or external box) that would probably go with a Rage Fury if it ever comes out... How about the newer Iomega Buz?

    Thanks for any advice you can give...

    Hmm, don't work for Viewsonic by any chance??? Wouldn't a 19in flat panel display put me slightly beyond the stratosphere to somewhere around the orbit of Pluto?

    I bought some Gateway V900 19" Vivitrons ~2 mos. ago, so I don't know current price - they were $490 then. They're trinitrons and I haven't yet seen the aperture grill wires. We use'em for 3D imaging & seismic interpretation and are happy with them. They do 1600 x 1280 @ 70 MHz vertical.
    Good luck!

    Can anybody tell me if the KDS VS-19SN is a good monitor? At computers4sure.com they have this monitor for $349. Its a 19" ; 1600x1200 @ 75hz ; .25mm dot pitch. This price seems unreal to turn down, but would I be better off buying the best 17" instead! Any recommends as to the best 17" monitor.
    Thanks
