Smile Need some advice.

Hi, i have a choice to choose a 22 in 2ms samsung lcd moniter for 300$

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001096

Or a Hanns-G 21.6 5ms lcd moniter with a 8600gt video card (upgrading from a 7300gt)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254028

I kinda like how the samsung has a 3ms difference but does 3ms really matter? also it has a bigger screen but only by .4 inches will that be apperent if i compared them side by side? I also like it because its Samsung and i know they always make high quality products but i kinda want the Hanns-G so i can get the video card also, and the Hanns-G has a hdmi port ( i have a dvi > Hdmi plug already so im all set anyways) but does dvi > dvi look the same compared to dvi > hdmi. Also i have never bought anything made by Hanns-G. some imput would be nice. ty

Both are very good monitors. You really wont see much of a difference between 5ms and 3ms. Samsung does make a high quality product.

What video card do you have now?

i have a evga 7300gt and it has to play crysis on the lowest settings at 800x600 and it still lags like crazy so i havent even played for more than a hour yet but i really want to play it again but the horrible graphics and framerate is stopping me from playing.

The 8600GT should play it at medium settings with decent frame rates. My kid is playing Crysis on an 7900GS at around 28FPS at custom med to high settings.

Get the Hanns-G and maybe even look into getting the 8600GTS.
