Default 17" LCD VS 19 " LCD

Obviously bigger is better but is there a big difference for gaming?

Depends on the MS timing. Anything 8MS or under is great for gaming.

I found this 17 inch which is a good price for 8ms and a 1500:1 contrast ratio... http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...g&promoid=1046

Should I go for this or spend a bit more to get a decent 19 inch? http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...Q&promoid=1046

that 3ms viewsonic is like over 400 bucks cdn...but regarding ncix... they have the best selection out of the canadian sites i know. theres tigerdirect.ca which has incredibly fast shipping but the selection is not as good as ncix and their prices are a bit higher for some things. and i just found out about anitec.ca not sure how they are.. but what i was asking was... should i just got for a cheapr 19 inch?

if u can find one thats 8ms or less and u can afford then ya go for it, ive been using anitec for along time and theyre great the only thing i dont like about them is that their shipping is quite expensive, i like ncix's selection but even though they have a huge selection they dont have half of the stuff they say they do and theyre prices are more than anitec and as for tigerdirect they are also more expensive than anitec, damn canada sucks for comp parts eh

I live in canada it was hell getting all these parts, but it turned out i had dual citizenship ,so i got a us mail box and just ordered the parts to it and picked them up there sneaky huh
ps: i think anitec has BY far: the best prices, fast shipping, and best selection, beats ncix.com by a lot IMO and i have never used tigerdirect.ca

there is a huge difference between 17 and 19 inch. Go to your local electronics store and look at the sample 17 and 19 and compare. You will see a diff.

Damnit, Newegg did it again. They are always changing their website around and searching for a monitor is all crazy now.

Get a 19"
ViewSonic VX922 Black/Silver 19" 2ms gray-to-gray (avg.); 2ms white-black-white (typ) LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 650:1 0.294mm Pixel Pitch - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116375

Excellent reviews, great for gaming and watching movies. You can read up on it and take my work for it too. It's a great monitor for the price.

TRDCorolla... you have told me about that monitor... i cant get it because none of the canadian sites carry it. But if they did it would probably be almost 500 canadian... and i am trying to cut back somewhere on costs for my upcoming build which i havent started yet . im still juggling everything around.

That 17" Samsung model has much better specs in my opinion. I'm not impressed with that 19" specs for the Benq monitor. I would rather get that Samsung one.
