What size and budget are you looking for?

My gaming screen came from Aria a couple of months ago:
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Displays/Monitors/TFT+24+%2B/26%22+Arianet+Widescreen+TFT+Monitor+Piano+Black+with+HDMI+%26+DVI+?productId=34348
I bought it when it was on "SuperSpecial" offer and reduced to £200ish. I love it with a passion, although viewing angles above/below aren't as good as the Dell 2007FP it runs alongside (but when you're gaming you're always looking at it head on, so who cares?).

I'd say keep an eye out for SuperSpecials on www.aria.co.uk and www.overclockers.co.uk as they can sometimes surprise you with a really great deal. Equally, keep an eye on www.ebuyer.com as they tend to have low prices, although they don't have special offers as often as the others.

EDIT: Beaten to the reply by j_chatelain. :)

I am looking for a dual monitor setup, so I was hoping to find something around 200 dollars each at most. Anything in the 20 inch range is more than acceptable. Everything I've seen is well over my budget.
Are these monitors dying out? It seems like 16:9 is becoming standard now.

Where have you been looking?
You can try this one:

or this one

Both have very low response times, the Asus being a little better, the LG probably will give you better color though.
They're both well in your price range and 16:10.
In fact I see a lot of 16:10 monitors out there... look for a resolution of 1680x1050.

There's a ton there, really, and well under $200 a pop. The ones I listed are 22"s for $150.

I apologize, I should've been more specific. I was referring to 1920x1200 monitors. It seems there are much fewer models with this resolution.

I do think those are getting more rare and more expensive, that's the reason I'm sticking to 1680x1050 for now.

Yeah I'm considering just buying one 16:10 @ 1680x1050 and another 16:9 @ 1920x1080 for more videos and such. I'm sure it would be significantly less expensive and accomplish essentially the same thing.

I am rather frustrated with the lack of stand features. It seems like dell is the only manufacturer that supplies stand with anything more than tilt.
