No budget, I'd be going for one of those new OLED's when they reach Ultra HD and are about 40-50".  Right now, I've got my dream monitors, a Dell 2405 (24" 1920x1200) and a Samsung 305T (30" 2560x1600).

I'm using like a 17+ inch Samsung at the moment . . . may be a bit larger, don't know tho. Had it for bout 3 years, has worked perfectly, just thinking about upgrading to something a bit larger. Anyone know any relatively cheap monitors that are larger? Hmm. Maybe I'll just drop $600 and get one of those 22'' samsungs or whatever they cost.

I would reccomend a cheap CRT monitor as long as you have the space. Fancy flat screens really don't seem to have a better picture.

If you're going to go that big, you might as well get a home theater projector.. Seriously.  ;)

I would say buy what you can afford and what fits into the space that you have.  The new LCD's seems just as good as the old CRT's so it is now a matter of preference.  I have a Samsung 20 in that I really like and it might even be the best monitor that I have ever had.

Yeah, I think one of the biggest reasons people prefer a CRT over LCD is because of the response difference.  But, there are 20" LCD's out there with a 2ms response, so that argument's nil.  Heck, my 30" Samsung has a 6ms response!

If your looking for an LCD gaming monitor make sure it has a good response time! I have an LG Flatron 19 in full screen monitor. I just can't stand widescreen!
