18" or 20" flat panel monitor

I am considering getting a flat panel monitor. Computer use includes surfing the net, Word and Excel, video editing, and moderate gaming (including Half Life 2). I am interested in recommendations as to the best flat panel monitor - performance-wise.

Any suggestions?

I started looking at 19" LCDs. I'm now comparing the Dell UltraSharp 1005FP and the NEC LCD1970GX. Has anyone had any experience with either of these?

Usually 20 and 21" monitors are higher quality. I'm not familiar with Dell 24" but sounds like a good deal. You get higher resolution on 20 and 21" monitors usually 1600x1200 vs 1280x1040 for 19". Also a lot of larger screens can rotate from landscape to portrait position. Which is handy for editing in Photoshop or surfing the Internet. Obviously a bigger screen is always bigger.

Good luck

Virtually every review of the Dell 2405 has been positive. I think it's made by Samsung, but not sure.
