Hey guys. Have now moved on to buying peripherals, and right now I'm on two Dell 2000fp 1600x1200 displays. I've seen what 1080p can do, and I love it. Advice for a ~23" 1080p dual monitor setup? I'm thinking $200 tops on each of the monitors. Don't need speakers on them.

Whatever you do, avoid the Samsung S24B150. Worst monitor ever!

There've been some threads on this in the last few months.
Monitors using IPS panels will give you the best colour and constant image at wide viewing angles (which is actually important).

Some of us have had success with recent LG IPS models (one of mine is an IPS235) and the Dell "Ultrasharp" models. Check the currently-available models and ask for feedback.

For example:
