Every 26 Inch Monitor I see on Newegg blows you out of budget

This one is 25.5 Inch and is priced at $359 USD and is the closest I think you will get to your 26 Inch desire for the budget and has ALL the features I mentioned in the previous thread plus a couple of cool extras like inbuilt HDTV tuner
SAMSUNG TOC T260HD Rose Black 25.5"

I am still looking for a gpu that would be a decent fit to it, but I think your $500 budget would still need to stretch SLIGHTLY!
I reckon if I was on your budget I would go this combo and be just inside budget

SAMSUNG T240HD Rose-Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen HDTV Monitor - Retail<<$299.99 USD
^Has the features we discussed in the previous thread
1/ HDCP support
2/ HDMI/DVI-D/VGA inputs
3/ 16:10/1920x1200 res for true 1080p HD
4/ A Damn fine brand

Recertified: EVGA 896-P3-1170-RX GeForce GTX 275 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card<<$199.99 USD
^Quite simply one of the better cards out right now, but watch for the upcoming GTX3** series cards coming seems you are still saving and choose a nice one to fit the budget then!

I would suggest you get the screen as soon as you have the $299.99 and then get the GPU later and when you have the money to compare your needs with your budget a bit better

The current tail end of the GTX2** series is here now and I feel buying a new GPU now would be silly with the view of Future-proofing yourself!

Wait for the gpu and look at the prices etc... when the new series of cards are out!

Edited my last post to add my opinions on the current state of the GPU market! ;)
There's a difference between a 26" LCD television and a 26" LCD monitor.
If you click on any of the links I provided you will see I was looking at monitors, not tv's and I looked in the "PC monitor" section

How can what I did be wrong?
