i gave patty my trusty $1000 24" dell last year, as it didn't have hdcp/hdmi, but now i really miss the clarity of text and the desktop real estate that 1920x1200/16:10 brings.
looking at dell and hp, even asus. i don't game, so don't need gamer monitor. i want something that has natural color, i'd go old school backlight over led to get it.
any suggestions?
24" to 27" is what i want.

i was looking at those. i don't think the wide color gamut is for me though, and i can get the u2412m for $300, as opposed to over $500 for the 2410. i dunno...
the 2410 is real sweet...

while i love dell monitors, and especially the u series, i had to have the asus, as it matches my gamer case and my other asus stuff...

Most of these issues are fixed in the Dell now, they tested on revision A00, I'm on revision A02 :)

I'm quite happy with my HD6870, but if you want more power (and spend up money) go for the HD 6990 :scara:

well. the 6970 fell through, so i found a reference 6950 2gb that i can turn into a 6970 (the nvidia card has to be set to full power 24/7, otherwise it 'blacks out' ever so often :) )
