I recently upgraded my somewhat old system to XFX GTX260 and since then have been itching to upgrade my monitor as well ( current one is Samsung 17' LCD) to tap full benefits of the card. Did lots of fact finding and search and realized that it isn;t as easy to finalize the monitor with so many vendors and options available. Here are the requirements: 1) Need to have 1920x1200 native resolution. No compromise on that. I've got a 32" LCD TV whcih can support 720p. I have a HD camcorder which can record in 1080i mode, so want at least one display where i can view HD content in its full glory. Again, I'm skipping 1920x1080 as I feel it provides slightly lesser desktop real-estate. I'm okay with the black bars showing up while watching 1080p content on 1920x1200 monitor. In fact, for some reason, i like those black bars which give cinema effect. 2) Lately I've started doing lots of HD video editing, though I'm not a professional and only a hobbyist. I'm not sure how appealing the "wide gamut" effect would be. 3) SInce I've got the fire-power I woudl be interested in gaming. Again, i would like to knwo from experienced gamers that how mcuh of a factor the "resposne time" is? 4) i would like to explore monitors whcih are available in India ( BLR). No point trying to drool over something which cannot be bought here. 5) Budget is upto 21K ( and i can stretch upto 26K, if option is really appealing). 6) This is bit far fetched, but would be good if I get to see the demo of monitors. Seems practically impossible from the initial hunt. Ive tried to call upon the local dealers and suppliers (computer warehouse, jainex tech, savex) in bangalore and it seems that there is no demand for 24" monitors at all. I've contacted over 5 of them and no one seems to have it stock, or ready to procure one, even if a place the request. need help in getting contact details of LCD monitor suppliers, esp 24/26". I had thought about these models 1) HP L2445w --> online price indicated is around 22k 2) DELL 2408FWP --> Seems pretty costly, but not able to get the price. Lots of input options, but i woudl hardly use them. 3) ACER 2616W --> Seems like a good fit, 26" screen, PVA panel, attractive price. Not so attractive ergonomoics ( i can compromsie on this) Rediff is indicating 21K. Not available locally. http://shopping.rediff.com/shop/product ... eripherals Great thanks in advace for comments/suggestions.
