Does anyone have any reviews? Looking to use it for internet, word processing and gaming - would samsung or nec be any good?

Try e-buyer or amazon usually fairly cheap with both.Just ordered a 22" Samsung from e-buyer today.You will also get customer reviews on the most popular ones.

only got a 15" buyt suppose I have just enough room for a 19"

Don't forget that an 4:3 ratio LCD monitor screen size such as 17in equates approximately to a 19in CRT model, a 19in to a 21in CRT and so on.

It's different in the case of widescreen models - for instance my 26in LCD TV has a screen height only a fraction more than the 21in CRT set it replaced.

I have a nvidia gtx 260 graphics card, which dvi cable do I get to work with the samsung monitor?

looking at the specifications, it has a VGA and DVI connection, use the DVI.

Garthy, how much will you be paying for that Samsung SM963UW? G
