Default woot getting a new monitor!!!1!11!

mom said that if i give my 17 inch lcd to my sister, then she would buy me a new monitor because she knows i use my computer for more serious stuff, and my sister wouldnt need anything more than what i have right now. she said to keep it under 300 lol. i've decided on this one

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pro...gon=&langid=EN

if you guys can find a better monitor on that site for around the same price, then tell me

well it has a 5ms response time - some are as low as 2ms - of course you wont really notice it the 3ms but don't know if you'd want to look for a lower response time?

Nice. I'm gonna wait another two weeks or so for my paycheck and I might consider buying a nice 24"-32" HDTV for the Xbox 360 that's coming in the mail next week.

I just bought this one a few weeks ago. I'm really enjoying it. It was $219 when I got it so its went up a little. Also has a 5ms response time. Looks really good in games and movies.

Yeah, well it's US, so it's cheaper for sure. But persoally, a 21.6" screen would look dang awesome!

Depends. 720p is still considered HD. Not the best, but it's still considered full HD.
