Default Need help choosing a monitor plz Help.

Hello,

I am trying to decide what monitor to get for my duel setup. My primary monitor is Dell 24" 2407WFP-HC Monitor, the second monitor will be used as an extension. Primary I will be using it for IE, Ventrillo, IRC…etc Since I never had a duel monitors b4 I really don’t know what I need to look 4…. From what I seen on newegg 24” is $270 the lowest… I guess its good, but then again for the things I will be using it for do I really need a 24? Maybe 22” would be best?

I guess this is a 2 part decision, 1st to figure out how many inches I really need and then to pick the right one

Here is how my current setup looks like, the new monitor will be on the right, right where the speakers are right now.

I think most people try and get the same size monitors but if that doesn't bother you I would say the asus monitor you linked looks great.

you need as many inches as possible, size matters

I, too, was stuck between choosing a 24 or 22.

I recently made up my mind to stay with a 22". It's a big price difference from 22 to 24 too.

If you want HDMI, 5ms, highest resolution for a 22"..then get the BenQ E2200HD
