also sorry for the double post but I am having the time of my life with this monitor. Yes it's just that good.

I got a s-video cable pluged one end into my video out in my PC and pluged the other end into the 2007. Then you just push PiP and set the size one up (the smallest flickers...) and then you can watch a moooooovie and play Gmod.

What a awesome combo.

The 2007WFP is fantastic for games, I have no ghosting what so ever.
fobose you mentioned that the DELL is fantastic for games, have you tried any FPS games ie Counter Strike Source ?? Any one else have anything to add regarding this monitor and FPS games?? I think you have a crackin set up regarding the two monitors and the dual stand arrangement.

I have played CSS on it a lot and its perfectly fine! Thanks, it is certainly an improvment from my old 17" and 15" !!

Got mine today. Awesome! Much better than my old 19" CRT. Office tasks are a breeze (easily displays two Word docs side by side), image editing much improved and video editing much better (more windows visible one screen at the same time with a longer timeline which is a bonus). Have yet to try hooking up a DVD/video player to try out the picture in picture function.

Regarding games, I've only had a quick go on CSS which was okay @ 1600 x 900. I'm only running an AMD 2600+ with a 6600GT and 1Gb RAM so I'm not sure that I've really got the power to run games at this resolution - I'll need to play around a bit more. Any comments from you guys on what could be the optimum settings for games on my rig? Dumb question, but is the 2007WFP a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio monitor? Both of these options were available in CSS but I only had chance to try the 16:9.

Use these launch settings for any Steam Games

-applaunch 220 -gl -w 1680 -h 1050
My rigs a 3500+, 1GB Corrupt ram and X800 XT PE. Works fine on highest settings.

Here are a few pics of my 2007FPW that arrived today.

On the desk


Desktop


Counter Strike Source pics

From my hand-held camera (hence a little blurred due to camera shake)


Actual screen shot


Running this @ 1680 x 900 and 16:10 aspect ratio with the monitor set to the 'gaming' image mode.

Really pleased with this. Image is sharp and no ghosting. The widescreen gives you a much better gaming experience.

I'm now really tempted to upgrade my old 6600GT to something better!

Really pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to you all.

You should be running it at 1680x1050 and set to 16:10 aspect ratio in CSS surely?
