I have this lcd and have try it with both Radeon aiw and Radeon8500, in additional I have also try it with gf2mx with absolutely no problem that I can detect!

but then I am not as picky as some seem to be in this forum!
is a very good lcd consider that price as compare to some other of the same size class!

I'm not disappoint with my monitor, infact i never see any other lcd with vibrant color and perfect image like VG191.
The only disappoint that i found in this monitor is the price, infact i pay $2200 for this monitor (I'm not American, I'm italian and here in Italy the LCD monitors cost 2 or 3 times more than in USA).
I'm instead very disappointed with this video card. In your opinion, the Geforce4, would have some problem with this monitor? Anybody try a geforce4 with this monitor?

I doubt you'd have this problem with a GF4, but if I were you, I would wait for the R300 from ATI. Won't be too long until it's released (only a few months).

I am planing on getting a Geforce4 ti4600 and this monitor, or the Vg181, why would there be a problem with this Combo ?

Well the GF3 had issues with the VG191. It was easily fixed though, so I guess you have nothing to worry about.

I wouldn't be concerned about it- NVidia addressed the certain Gf3 probs w/ the LCD monitors, but considering those could be fixed by a bios flash, in teh worst case that'll be teh same for the GF4, but I am almost positive there will be no problems with it.

Basically, ghosting was more evident w/ the GF3. Bios flash is when u replace the ROM on a vid card. You pretty much are replacing info on what it is, where it's from, anything special, commands, etc.

I might be wrong, but I think the external size of VG181/191/VA800 is about the same! at least in the case of VA800 and VG191, the difference seem to come from the use of a thinner brezel on VG191!!
