Default new monitor, which should I get?

Ok, I got $200 towards a new LCD monitor for my birthday. What should I get? I want at least 1680x1050 so that if I get an xbox 360 I can plug it in for full hd. Which should I get? If its worth it I can add a little bit of my own money to get something a little more expensive than $200.

Well, I was thinking 22" but none of those are less than $250 so forget that. I guess that leaves 20.1"

That Viewsonic open box has good specs for a screen that size, but it's open box OEM. Man, I wonder why it got returned in the first place? THere was another good one by Acer.

I'm thinking about that one, what do you think? Onboard speakers, and RGB connectors.

I highly recommend the few extra bucks to buy this

It is on sale and a really good monitor. I own the 205BW, which is only a tiny bit better, and it is a really good monitor. I'm running a two monitor setup (with two different ones), and everything displays much better on the samsung.

Edit: fixed.. I swear I put it as a link. . .

Here it is if that messes up again: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001087

That Scepter looks great. Spec-wise, it looks good. Every monitor we pointed out here are good.
