Im going to COMEX to get 19" wide screen LCD but aint sure which fit in well..

There's viewsonic, samsung and lg at the price of $399.

But something bother me about was the contrast ratio. Most of the LCD are 500:1 but, I saw LG is 2000:1! How much different is it compared to the rest?

Which LCD is worth to buy if I also wanna do photoshop too. Im getting Powercolor graphic card too X1600.

My aim is to do photoshop and gaming too. Would like heed some advice from you all. :lovegrin:

Which... hm...;)

waa gaming and photoshop...
for photoshop best would be high contrast and 8-bits
for gaming, good response rate will be good. try to look for <8ms (only if you are playing fast game)

Haha LG got both fast response as well as good constrast + 8-bit (Although I heard of 10-bit???)

But what LG lose out to Samsung is the large variety of useful utilities.

Frankly, with your budget, it will be very difficult to get a true 8 bit LCD, as all (correct me if i am wrong) WS LCDs around the $3xx price point are using TN 6bit panels.

Even the LG panels which claim to be 8 bit (ie 19" 1952T) are TN panels - most probably they are so by 6bit + 2bit dithering (= 8 bit).

Your safest bet would be to get the Dell 2007FPW (S-IPS panels), or the $539 Viewsonic VX2025wm LCD (I'm using this, it's great.)
