Shopping for a new monitor, once again. I'd like a widescreen monitor, but my question is this: I currently have an ATI Tv Tuner card, and it works all right; I use it to play my gamecube/xbox and what not on my PC. However, there is a bit of lag, which really drives me crazy. I believe I remember seeing some monitors with composite input offered on the monitor itself, but I'm not sure; so I was wondering 1) Are there Monitors that have these inputs on them standard? and 2) Would this eliminate the lag I experience? Thanks in advance.

You want a monitor with Composite/S-Video/Component inputs, along with the standard VGA/DVI. I have a Dell 2005FPW that has S-Video & Composite. Many of the newer larger screens have them (20"+). These would essentially eliminate the lag since the PC will not be processing the video.

your best option would prob be a refurb 2007wfp direct from dell (http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/topics/global.aspx/arb/online/en/InventorySearch?c=us&cs=22&l=en&lob=MON&MODEL_DESC=ALL&s=dfh).
