I got a $20 gift card to best buy for graduation (along with $135 in cash) and want to use it to help buying a monitor. Would newegg be better? My budget is $162.

[Edit] If anyone could recommend a monitor that would be awesome. I want at least 20 inches but the bigger the better. At least a 1080 resolution and a decent refresh rate.

I can't find the response time or refresh rate on this one. I'd also like to have HDMi so I can hook up my PS3 to it.

Get the Playstation 3D Monitor then. Good for desktop, excellent for gaming. Does 1080p. I've never used the 3D on it but that feature is supposed to be pretty neat too.
