Dell's UltraSharp 3008WFP-HC will accept just about any possible signal, with ports on the back for Analog VGA, DVI-D (2, w/HDCP), HDMI, DisplayPort, S-Video, Composite and Component. The 8ms gray-to-gray can show some issues in FPS games, but ExtremeTech found the display perfect for watching HD video. Another consideration for gamers is that it doesn't handle 1680x1050 which some find to be a sweet spot for Crysis.
