Guys,
Have you reviewed any monitors? I'm not sure if I should get a new vid card to replace my V3 3000 with my old monitor. I see black horizontal lines all the time now on my old(1997)"19 Gateway EV900. I mean I want a V5, but how will it improve my pic quality with the old monitor? I have tried to search the web but I can't seem to find an updated comparison among monitors for gaming. I have found a few monitors that look like they would work,but the price is high for a product that you can't find reviews on.
Like the Hitachi 769-looks like it has everything,amazing specs. But would the Hitachi 776 or 771 look as good for $100 less? Or Viewsonic? They seem to have a few good looking models. The Optiquest Q95-$200 cheaper that the Hitachi's-What kinda picture?
Ok I'm full of questions here. Do you guys know of any reviews anywhere? Or have any opinions? When I do spend a wad of cash on a "19 monitor, I'll be stuck with my choice for years.

forget it. I found a refurbished Cornerstone "21. As long as they are not out by the 3rd when I get paid..Looks like a hell of a monitor for $475.

But dammit don't buy one! I don't get paid till the 3rd and they may be out of them! Hitachi has a "21 incher on their site refurbished for $569. Check out the specs on that Cornerstone..I can just see that baby on my desk now!

Well,
I changed my mind and got a new samsung syncmaster 1100P+ "21 monitor. This is a beautiful thing to look at. I can see so much better with it that I'm suddenly better at multiplayer Q3. And it looks so good that it's like playing a new game. My next door neibor sells hardware and cut me a good deal(and is letting me have credit).

Check out these specs:
