New LCD monitor choices...

So I have to get a new monitor here very soon (Probably within a couple weeks)
I have a 17" LCD now, but I'm selling it with my old computer to my brother, thus I will be without a monitor...

I really want a 22" wide screen and don't want to pay more than about $250
So far I have it narrowed down to these two monitors, both have very close specs, I just can't make my mind up!

I use my computer for mainly graphics and web design work, I do do a little gaming (ET:QW on Ubuntu)

I haven't booted windows in over a month (Except for a virtual box so that I could get on ventrilo...)
So as long as it is well supported in Linux I'll be happy, you can see my main specs in my signature area and here are the two LCD's I have in mind:


If you have any other LCD's in mind other than these two please post!

I hope I didn't post this in a bad spot... doesn't have much to do with Ubuntu, I just figured since the Ubuntu community is a bunch of smart and kind people I would ask here :D

Maybe if you watch for a sale:


I have a Dell 1907FP and I love it, bright, no dead pixels, just fine for gaming. Makes the screen on my T43 look kinda bad actually.
