    It really seems that you really want a LCD. I haven't used that lcd but from the reviews, and the specs, it should be quiet decent. But look around for a cheaper monitor.

    700:1 is bad? Most monitors are around 500-600:1, usually less.

    I got the Viewsonic VA1912wb 19'' Widescreen (1440x900)
    I was hesitant on getting the widescreen version but after reading the reviews on this monitor I gave it a shot... BEST thing I ever did. I love this monitor! sharpest picture and text that I've seen in a LCD (I've had a few). It has D-sub and DVI connections and come with cables for both.
    Widescreen gaming is a joy! COD2 and FEAR look amazing!
    it only costs $309 at newegg and is well worth it.
